The Cat Sitter's Pajamas

The Cat Sitter's Pajamas
by Clement, Blaize

Don’t let the title fool you. Dixie, our heroine, is a pet sitter (dogs, cats, snakes, etc.). The only way animals are involved is when she goes to feed and exercise them.  However, there always seems to be a body somewhere along the way. In this particular situation, the plot is very convoluted. Why does the "Supermodel" break into a famous football player’s house which is in a very sophisticated, guarded community? How does a dead body appear in the house while Dixie is in her car waiting for the police and the supermodel is changing clothes in the bedroom? Who is the homicide detective who is NOT a homicide detective and causes Dixie nothing but trouble? And, finally, who are the thugs who knock out Dixie and search her home? All of these questions will be answered someplace in the 260 pages. If you enjoy this outing, there 6 other stories in the Dixie series.
