Cat Got Your Secrets: 11/20/19

Cat Got Your Secrets

Cat Got Your Secrets by Julie Chase (2017) is the third book in the Kitty Couture mystery series set in New Orleans. Early this year Blackstone audio released the series as audiobooks and I read this one in that format.

While Lacy Crocker is making a delivery of dreidel shaped doggie biscuits for an upcoming bark-mitzvah, she arrives on the scene of a police investigation. The owner of the building, and a good friend of Lacy's father, was found dead in the walk-in freezer.

With Mr. Crocker now the prime suspect, Lacy knows she has to investigate to clear her father's name. While she's at it, she catches the ire of a local blackmailer. Someone is trading money to keep secrets hidden and when the victims stop paying, they end up dead. Now Lacy is on their radar!

The mystery is well laid out with just enough balance between clues, distractions, and banter. It's nice to see Lacy's relationship with her mother improving. Her mother is still stuck on old ways of doing things, but she's starting to acknowledge that Lacy's ways might work too.

The fourth volume is Cat Got Your Crown and it builds on the side plot of this book. It was released March 13th of this year.

Five stars
