Dixie Hemingway has a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The day she happens upon the dead body outside a fancy mansion is no different. She's had her fill of homicide investigations, so she leaves the gate-keeper's corpse to be found by somebody else. Unfortunately, that somebody else sees Dixie leaving the scene of the crime, and the fatal bullet might ...more

Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues, is book 3 in the A Dixie Hemingway Mystery Series. This is one of the series that I have been reading out-of-order as I have come across the books. I started with one of the later books in the series and was immediately drawn to the character of Dixie and her world in the Florida Keys.

This book doesn’t involve the usual cats or dogs, but instead an iguana. The reader is led on a twisting chase of government agencies, bioterrorism, biochemical weapons, secret labs,

This is #3 in the cozy mystery series starring Dixie Hemingway as sleuth, but it's the first one that I've read.

Dixie, a pet sitter in Florida (and no, not related to THAT Hemingway) receives a strange call from an Irishman wanting her to feed his iguana, Ziggy. She shows up at the mansion at the address she's been given only to find that her "client," an odd scientist, has no idea who she is. What's more, his guard has just been shot dead and his nurse immediately disappears with a number of o

When I'm feeling groggy and brain-dead at the end of a workday, and I want something light and entertaining that doesn't insult my intelligence, these cat sitter mysteries hit the spot. The third installment was interesting, with a really good (if improbable) story, but as with the first two books, it ended up as an average-but-not-great three-star read for me. In this one, Dixie, our heroine, gets a phone call asking her to drop in and feed a rich guy's pet iguana. Unfortunately, the guard at t ...more

Pet sitter Dixie rides her bike past a rich house with a guard. She is going to take shelter from the rain in the guardhouse, until she sees the guard is dead! She returns to the place later to realize that the person who hired her over the phone last-minute to take care of his iguana lives in that house!

This was the third in a cozy mystery series. I'm really enjoying the series, and I really enjoyed this one. Dixie has a bit of romance happening in this book (with two men!). It's tame, but I'm

I can't get enough of this series. The plots are intriguing, gritty, and suspenseful. At the same time, Dixie is a hilarious character with quips, statements, and thought processes that will leave you cracking up. She is wry and smart, though she makes a lot of natural mistakes. It prevents her from being the unknowable narrator, an untouchable character. I thought the mystery in this book was particularly strange and bizarre, with lots of twists and turns.

I did not like the actual mystery part of this story as much as the mysteries in the first two Dixie Hemingway stories. However, I very much liked that this book delved more into her personal life (and that she had reached a point where she actually has a personal life). As I just saw pointed out in another review, sometimes the books can come across a bit preachy about various topics. Also, sometimes I find descriptions of characters kind of cringeworthy (stereotypes). However, the author has a ...more
Very judgy. I hate it when authors let their prejudices show, especially when it's not central to the story or the character. That's how you know the author is inserting themselves into the book. Doubt I'll read more of her stuff even if the mystery aspects are interesting. Just too distracting.

My passion is people. I think people are absolutely magnificent. Not the power-hungry heads of governments or churches or corporations who justify all kinds of horror if it suits their goals, but the rest of us. In spite of the awful things some human beings do in order to control other human beings, most people are peacefully going about their own business, and I applaud that. Families are the ba ...more
