Publisher's Summary

Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter for some of Florida's most pampered pets. But when she happens upon a man drowned in a cat's water bowl, Dixie's sleuthing powers from her time as a deputy sheriff return full-force. And as more bodies keep turning up, she'd better find out whodunit.

    Any additional comments?

    I'd like to see more of this series recorded. Julia Gibson did a great job with the performance . Blaize Clement has created an interesting heroine in Dixie Hemingway!

    "A fun mystery"
    Would you listen to Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter again? Why?

    yes. This is a really cute, light mystery and there are dogs and cats in it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Curiosity Killed the Cat Sitter?

    the ways she relates to dogs and cats.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Gibson – was your favorite?

    Dixie, but I enjoyed Michael and Paco, too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but I couldn't. As soon as I walked back into the house, I turned it on and I even took it on the walk Dolly (my dog) and I took. It was a great book to knit to.


    Any additional comments?

    I see there is only one more of this series on Audible but Amazon has several and one new one is due out in July 2013. I sure hope Audible decides to record these. On to the next one.

    "Love these Quirky series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a friend. It is a nice funny book with a great reader.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat, but it kept me interested.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Gibson – was your favorite?

    Well, I liked them all but I guess I will go with the main character, Dixie.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have enjoyed that except for I mostly listen to books in my car and 8+ hours in my car at one time doesn't sound very fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these quirky stories. I had actually listened to this one on CD a long time ago but still enjoyed listening to it again. I will be looking for more of these. I love that she has normal household pets in her story but doesn't make them out to be super animals. They are just normal pets doing what normal pets do.

    It was unexpected.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Surprising turns and reveals.

    Nope, but I will listen to more now.
