Immerse yourself in the delicious heat of New Orleans as
you follow Lacy Marie Crocker on another fun-packed (yet
perfectly suspenseful) ride to solve a murder mystery.
CAT GOT YOUR CASH is the second in Julie Chase's Kitty
Couture mystery series, and although I enjoyed book one
YOUR DIAMONDS) I think I liked CAT GOT YOUR CASH
even better. Lacy has settled in a bit more in her
hometown. She has regained custody of her beloved cat
Penelope and although there are no resolutions to the
hints of romance, there is enough give and take to add a
bit of (tasteful) spice to the story.
For me, this is the perfect cozy, there is enough interest
even outside the mystery arc to keep me satisfied, just
enough suspense to keep me riveted without any violence
haunting me when I close my eyes and, most importantly,
Lacy has reason enough to pursue the mystery and does so
with the safety net of homicide detective Jack Oliver. (I
admit, one of my pet peeves regarding cozy mysteries is
when the main character acts dangerously foolish and has
no solid reason to interfere in the police investigation.)
Add to that the endearing characters who populate her
world and I can count on Julie Chase to provide a lovely
Book three in the Kitty Couture series, CAT GOT
YOUR SECRETS is due out in September 2017. Julie Chase also
wrote the Geek Girl
Mystery series as well as others under
the name Julie Anne Lindsey.
Lacy Marie Crocker’s whimsical pet couture has gained a
following in New Orleans’s cozy Garden District, and word of
mouth has traveled all the way to her favorite fashion
designer, Annie Lane. Lacy’s thrilled when Annie schedules a
private session at her home to discuss a companion line for
her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment,
she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats--and one
very dead Annie.
Lacy takes the kittens home to care for them until they can
be properly claimed by Annie's family or friends, but after
a busy day of work, she returns home to find them missing.
And when Lacy learns the cats are set to inherit Annie's
fortune, she begins to wonder if the killer was after the
kittens all along. Now Lacy will stop at nothing to save the
Siamese and find justice for Annie--if the killer doesn’t
sink his claws into her first.
Luckily, Lacy has the help of handsome NOLA PD homicide
detective Jack Oliver to help her catch the cat-napper
before its too late in Cat Got Your Cash, the
endearing second Kitty Couture mystery from Julie Chase.
