    Too silly for me!

    Cat Got Your Secrets by Julie Chase is the third story in A Kitty Couture Mystery series. Lacy Marie Crocker owns Furry Godmother in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a pet boutique and organic treat bakery that caters to all animals. Lacy is dropping off dreidel dog treats for a bark-mitzvah at a catering hall next to The Cuddle Brigade when she notices a slew of emergency vehicles. She gets out to inquire what is occurring and discovers that her father’s friend, Wallace Becker is dead. When Lacy discovers her father was the last person (besides the killer) to see Wallace alive, she knows she needs to act quickly. Lacy starts delving into Wallace Becker’s life to find out who would have wanted him dead. She needs to work in her investigation in between baking pet treats, creating costumes, helping with the preparations for the party honoring her father, and her NPP Welcoming Committee commitments (thanks to her mother). In addition, there are her two suitors, Chase Hawthorne and Detective Jack Oliver. Cat Got Your Secrets was easy to read and had a good pace. I did feel that the murder occurred too early in the book (right at the beginning) which makes the book feel long. Cat Got Your Secrets can be read alone. Everything a reader needs to know is provided in the story. I felt the author tried to stuff too much into one book. There are numerous people and animals introduced (along with wacky costumes for the pets). None of the human characters are fully developed (very superficial). There are details missing from the story (an example is the father’s first name). I am rating Cat Got Your Secrets 2 out of 5 stars (just not for me). Lacy is a difficult character to like (and lacks depth). She is 30 going on 16 (I might be giving her too much credit). Lacy has unreasonable expectations, runs around like the Roadrunner, overreacts to every little thing, breaks laws, etc. There is just one zany antic after another. Then there is her demanding mother (a woman who loves parties and events). The mystery is not complicated and it is easily solved early in the novel (one clue will give it away). There was a repetition of information especially in the beginning. Cat Got Your Secrets failed to capture and hold my attention. I wanted more substance and less wacky. I am not the right audience for A Kitty Couture Mystery series.

    New Orleans, Valentine's Day, Pets, and Murder

    Cat Got Your Secrets: Kitty Couture Mystery # 3 by Julie Chase. Lacy Marie Crocker is excited about her pet boutique, Furry Godmother, finally showing signs of success and that the National Pet Pageant is coming up soon which will bring in new orders for pet costumes. Finally thing seem to be going well for Lacy, but when she received an order of dreidel shaped dog biscuits for a bark-mitzvah and arrives to deliver them she finds out that one of her dad’s friends has been found dead inside the venue. Detective Jack Oliver comes to Lacy’s shop later to let her know her dad is a suspect in the murder of his friend. Lacy is determined no matter what to clear her dad’s name. Can she find the real killer without becoming the next victim? I really like how Lacy is maturing as the series progresses. She has finally decided to have a better relationship with her mother even though she still wants to make a success on her own without financial help from her parents. She finally decides what she wants as relationship wise from Chase and Jack. I was also glad to see Jack show some trust and open up, letting Lacy know more about his life past and present. I love Lacy’s cat Penelope and her obsession with riding the Roomba around Furry Godmother. I am looking forward to seeing what trouble Lacy can get into in the next book and seeing how Jack and her other friends and family can help get her out of harm’s way. I recommend this book to mystery lovers especially lovers of cozy pet mysteries. This is a funny, well written book, with lovable characters and just the right amount of red herrings. There is no graphic language, sex, or violence. This book can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone mystery. There is continuing storyline in the series and to have better understand of the backstory on the relationships you should read Cat Got Your Diamonds and Cat Got Your Cash first. Recipes included as a bonus. **I voluntarily read an advanced reader’s copy of this book. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**
