The Cat Sitter's Cradle by Blaize & John Clement is the eighth in the cozy mystery series featuring Florida pet sitter, Dixie Hemingway (available July 9, 2013).
Dixie Hemingway (no relation to you-know-who) is back! Dixie is a cat sitter on the gorgeous but sleepy Florida barrier island of Siesta Key. It was not so long ago that we talked about Dixie’s adventures in The Cat Sitter’s Pajamas. Now here she is in book number eight of the series, The Cat Sitter’s Cradle, written by Blaize and John Clement. And in case you’ve forgotten, I’ll let Dixie tell you exactly how she came to be a pet sitter who specializes in cats, but does sit the occasional dog, or bird or hamster.
Until about five years ago, I risked my life every day as a deputy sheriff, but after what you might call a bump in the road of life, I went a little nuts. Well, a lot nuts. The sheriff’s department and I came to a mutual agreement: I was too messed up to wear a sheriff ’s badge or carry a gun, and it was probably a good idea for me to take a break from law enforcement. That’s when I started my own pet-sitting business. Now that I’m somewhat socially acceptable again, I’m okay around guns, but I prefer working with animals to humans. Animals don’t let you down, and they’re always there when you need them.
