Dollycas’s Thoughts

An absolutely delightful new cozy from Julie Chase! Doesn’t that grab you right away?

Her dad goes into slump, her mother is in denial and worried more about upcoming National Pet Pageant, Lacy goes into overdrive to find proof so that Detective Jack Oliver will leave her dad alone and find the real killer. The tables turn on Lacy when she receives an envelope and finds herself in the cross hair

Lacy Crocker is the proud owner of Furry Godmother, a pet boutique and organic treat bakery, in New Orleans. Cat Got Your Secrets is the third book in the Kitty Couture Mystery series. This newest installment is centered around Valentine's Day (without being sappy about it, too -- which I loved!) and a National Pet Pageant.

Lacy is on her way to deliver some treats when she sees emergency vehicles at a crime scene. She discovers that one of her father's friends has been murdered. The major proble

A very fun and light read in this third installment in the series. At this point, I've gotten over the concept that she makes a real living with a store selling pet costumes and just enjoying the book and the subsequent mystery. This time, the main suspect is in her immediate family, causing Lacy to exert even more effort into finding the killer. The romantic element with Chase and Detective Oliver is still somewhat of a triangle and I'd like to see her in a relationship in the next book.

I loved Cat Got Your Secrets. This series by Julie Chase quickly found a place in my heart with the first book in series Cat Got Your Diamonds late last year. I was even more enchanted with Cat Got Your Cash when I got to read it in February and was anxiously awaiting Cat Got Your Secrets! I was so delighted when I was approved to read and review it on Netgalley. This one is out September 12th and I am so excited for you to read it. Like all great trilogies the third book is even better than the ...more

**I voluntarily read this ARC**

Wow! That was unexpected (in a good way). I always love when a mystery is personal, and this one definitely is. Lacy has her hands full trying to prove her father's innocence, keep her mom happy, and run her business. The story was a lot of fun and had some great humor, but the love triangle is getting a bit boring.

Another fun mystery in the Kitty Couture series by Julie Chase. Not only is this book really fun, it has a great mystery also. There are twists and turns around every corner. I found this book to be a quick read, with a well developed plot and characters. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you love cozy mysteries, I strongly recommend this book and the series.

I received this book in exchange or a fair and honest review.

Another good addition to the series. Lacy is settling into New Orleans well, if only she could stay away from murder mysteries. This time she is making a delivery and finds out her father's friend was found dead and her father was the last person seen with him. Now with her dad possibly being accused of murder and her mother upset because of the swirling gossip Lacy tries to figure out what really happened.

Lacy Marie Crocker is staying busy making pet costumes, helping her mother organize the welcome event for the National Pet Pageant and sorting out her relationships with society pal Chase Hawthorne and hunky police detective Jack Oliver. Then her father's friend Wallace Becker is found dead in his own walk-in freezer and her father looks like the prime suspect.
This is the third in the Kitty Couture series, though it isn't necessary to read the first two to follow the relationships. The author do
I LIKED this book! It is the first in the series that I have read. I enjoyed that I didn’t figure out who did it until near the end.

It is filled with good writing, a good story, great characters that are believable. I liked that is was set around Valentine’s Day without having a sappy romance angle. I also enjoyed that Lacy is wrangled into serving on the National Pet Pageant committee with her mother. She finds that it could be good for business and getting to know others. I will be reading the

I can’t say enough how much I love this series, and Cat Got Your Secrets reminded me why I love it all over again. Lacy, who just wants to run her pet boutique, keeps running into bodies (clearly the pet boutique business is a dangerous one) and then of course can’t help but figure out whodunit. This time it’s personal, and I really enjoyed the larger focus on her family in this book.

I loved this fast-paced, fun mystery set in the Big Easy with a great cast of characters and well-crafted plot that kept me glued to the book from the first page to the last. I really liked Lacy Crocker, owner of Furry Godmother. a thriving pet boutique in New Orleans Garden District, and her dynamic with the other characters especially homicide detective Jack Oliver. Lacy sets out to clear her dad when he becomes a suspect in the death of his good friend.

Oh Lacy! This third installment in the Kitty Couture series finds Lacy trying to solve a murder mystery that implicates her dad all the while also trying to resolve her romantic triangle with Jack and Chance. This is one I'd recommend primarily for pet lovers because if you don't love animals, you might find it a bit over the top, what with the costumes and bark mitzvah. That said, it's a classic and entertaining cozy that's a fast read and just twisty enough in the plot that it will keep you gu ...more

I really liked the previous book, Cats Got Your Cash, but I loved this one.
Great story, I got hooked right away, and you just can't beat New Orleans for the location.
Well developed characters and relationships, and witty banter keeps you entertained, while you keep trying to figure out "Whodunnit".
Read this book---you will not be disappointed!!
Kudos, Julie Chase, excellent writing!

This is my first “Cat Got Your” book. It won’t be my last. Love the characters and the setting of the story. How much fun would it be to have a pet boutique? I would love it! Lacy, Chase, and Jack – that took me a little while to get straight, but I think things are progressing nicely now. Sometimes family love has its bumps, but it is the strongest love there is. Loved some of the dialog between Lacy and her mother. Can’t wait to see what the next adventure will be!

This just wasn't a book for me. It's not that it is poorly written I just had a very difficult time staying focused on the story and found I often had to go back and reread pages and pages as I had zoned out the first time reading them.

Cat Got Your Secrets is the first book I have read in the “Kitty Couture Mystery” series. I do not think it will be my last. I adore books that involve pets and with the protagonist owning a shop dedicated to spoiling your pets, this ticks all the boxes for me. I enjoy the relationship main character Lacy Marie Crocker has with her family and friends. Set in the colorful city of New Orleans, full of quirky characters, fun writing style, this one is a hit for me.

Lacy is the nosy amateur sleuth in this series. She goes and snoops and one suspect said she'd ask for a restraining order if Lacy bothered her again. It's tough for an amateur sleuth!

I liked the animal scenes best, especially at the start of the book when Lacy put a costume on Penelope the cat and asked her how the outfit fit and then asked "Why can't you talk?" That was funny. Penelope likes to ride on the robotic vacuum, Spot, which is decorated with pipe cleaners. There were also mentions of
