Summary

Grandeur and opulence are everything in the famed New Orleans Garden District where pets are family and no bling is too big. Opening Furry Godmother, pet boutique and organic treat bakery, is Lacy Marie Crocker's dream come true - until the glitter gun used to make her Shih Tzu tutus becomes a murder weapon - and Lacy becomes public enemy number one.

Now detective Jack Oliver is hounding Lacy, and her Furry Godmother investor wants out before his name is tarnished by association. To make matters worse, a string of jewel heists with suspicious ties to the murder case has New Orleans residents on edge. To save her dream, Lacy must take a stand, put her keen eyes to work, and unravel what really happened at her shop that night. But can Lacy sniff out the killer cat burglar in time to get her tail-raising designs on the catwalk?

Witty and whimsical, Cat Got Your Diamonds, the first in a new cozy series by Julie Chase, will be the cat's meow for fans of Rita Mae Brown and Miranda James.

Hacknyed

Oh {yawn!}

He's deliberately obnoxious, misogynistic and provoking, but he's SO handsome... {sigh!}

Really? How completely overused is that one, and how shallow and lacking in self-worth does a woman have to be to be attracted to an otherwise vile man simply becasue of his looks.

It's really not trait that causes me to have any empathy with the main protagonist of a story, and if there's no empathy with the main protagoist I'm not going to enjoy the book.

What’s up with the negative reviews?

Although this mystery is not as good as a Patricia Cornwell Scarpetta book, it is still an above average cozy mystery. The characters were well developed and believable. I highly recommend this to fans of cozy mysteries, and of course cat lovers too.

Couldn’t finish reading

I found the story boring (especially the predictable “romance” angle) and I only listened up to chapter 9. None of the characters were particularly likable, including the main character who spoke in first person.
Reminded me more of a Harlequin Romantic Suspense than a cozy mystery.
