|Summary, etc.:||"Pet sitter Dixie Hemingway is on the prowl again in the newest installment of Blaize Clement's classic and beloved series of cozy mysteries, now written by her son, John Clement, using Blaize's notes and ideas for future adventures. Set in the sleepy beach-side town of Siesta Key, Florida, THE CAT SITTER'S WHISKERS catches up with Dixie as she heads off for work one morning in the dimly lit hours before sunrise. Her very first client of the morning is Barney Feldman, a Maine coon cat with a reputation for mischief who's guarding his vacationing owner's valuable collection of decidedly creepy antique masks. But someone's hiding in the house when she arrives, and they sneak up and knock her out cold. When the cops arrive at the house, there's just one problem: no one has broken in and nothing is missing. Searching for answers, Dixie soon finds herself hopelessly trapped in a murky world of black market antiques, dark-hearted secrets, and murderous revenge... a mystery only she can solve. "--|

Dixie Hemingway, a pet sitter on Siesta Key, off Sarasota, starts her day early to beat the midday heat. She knows Levi Radcliff, the newspaper delivery man and an old school friend, will be up early, too, but his car shouldn't be parked on her route. Thinking it odd, she goes on to feed Barney Feldman, the Maine coon cat who lives with the Kellers. Mrs. Keller collects antique masks, and on this ill-fated morning one of the masks, which Dixie has dubbed "Dick Cheney," shields an intruder, who attacks Dixie. After she comes to, calls the police, and gets checked out by the paramedics, Dixie goes to the local café, where everyone is complaining about the lack of a morning newspaper. Remembering Radcliff's car parked in the wrong place, Dixie goes to check on her friend but finds him dead. The connection between Levi's murder and the subsequent murder of the dealer who sold Mrs. Keller "Dick Cheney" evolves and shifts throughout this nicely plotted mystery. As with earlier entries in this cozy series, pet lovers will embrace Dixie for her determined focus on her charges. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
