Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 1/29/2014

    " Siesta Key, Sarasota, Fla is as much a character in this book as Dixie Hemingway. People who know the area will relish in Clement's description of that idyllic area. Although brought about by terrible circumstances, the Spartan living of a single woman on her own terms, with a no frills career is refreshing. An interesting start to a potentially powerful series. "

    " Fun, light hearted mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzze Tiernan | 12/31/2013

    " A light mystery with darker undertones. I enjoyed it, and would read another in the series, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 12/16/2013

    " I love this series, and decided to re-read it after finishing Catsitter's Pajamas, Blaize Clement's last original book in the series. Blaize must have been a helluva woman because insight into animals and humans is astounding. The series is awesome too because Blaize was able to combine elements of cozy mysteries with the hardboiled detective. I HIGHLY recommend this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/14/2013

    " one of my favorite cozy series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 12/11/2013

    " A fun easy read, Dixie Hemingway lost her husband and daughter in an accident. She quits being a police officer and becomes a pet sitter/sleuth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda Ricord | 11/28/2013

    " I loved this book. It's set in the Florida Keys and the description of the area puts you right there. I also liked Dixie. She came across as a real person with real problems just trying to get over a tragedy. I love animals so naturally I love a book about animals. They didn't take over the plot though. Just enough discussion about the cats and dogs to be pleasant. I have the next book in the series and will read it very soon. I recommend this book to anyone that likes cozies about animals with a murder or two mixed in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 11/25/2013

    " Not sure I'd have enjoyed this as much, or even picked it up, if I wasn't a cat sitter. She definitely hit the nail on the head with what petsitting can be like (although I have yet to experience the finding of a dead body). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Seifert | 10/15/2013

    " Good book! A mystery that keeps you wanting to read more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/26/2013

    " I haven't read a mystery series in a while so it was fun to get back into one. Not surprisingly, my favorite parts were the ones about the pets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara | 9/22/2013

    " I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Will definitely be reading the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorothy | 9/7/2013

    " I was looking for a new cat book series...but, not really about cats "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 8/19/2013

    " First in the Dixie Hemingway series. Nice cozy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 6/10/2013

    " I picked this up right before I was to sit for my friend's cat. It's a great story with a heroine I like. And I actually learned some things about the "job". At any rate, I had my friend leave the phone number of her vet, at least. I'll be looking for the next book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce Hansen | 5/22/2013

    " Starting with CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER (published 2006), Blaize Clement's mystery series about Florida pet sitter Dixie Hemingway are perfect for those not interested in overt violence and strong language. Kirkus Reviews calls Dixie "a complex, well-conceived character." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/14/2013

    " A fun book to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanie | 5/14/2013

    " Fun, light, quick read. Pet sitter gets involved in murder. Along the lines of Murder She Wrote - main character accidently finds 'bodies'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/6/2012

    " This was a really fun cozy. I'll definitely be reading more in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 10/16/2012

    " This book was so good. I loved raeding about a pet sitter all that she went through to solve a case. It was a fun ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Callee Jaeger | 5/11/2012

    " Much better than I expected. This book is missing the disappointing "romance" elements of many of the other mystery books I've read recently. Finally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/2/2012

    " Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter in Florida. She switched careers from being a police officer after tragedy hit her life. Dixie is caring for an Abyssinian when she finds a dead man in the cats house. A decent mystery with some realistic descriptions of grief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/11/2012

    " Very nicely written, with interesting characters. I'm told that the cats are realistic. I will be reading more of this series. "

    " This was a great recommendation from a friend and I look forward to the rest of the series! A very descriptive writer who does a wonderful job of setting the scene. This book had some fantastic lines!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy El | 9/15/2011

    " Short and sweet very enjoyable mystery; especially if you are a pet lover. Quick enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 9/12/2011

    " I enjoyed the mystery and the pets. I'm not sure I like the characters. I may read another book before I decide. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 8/29/2011

    " I liked the story of this cozy mystery. I was surprised at some of the language. I don't mind language at all in the books I read. I'm just surprised when I see it in a book described as a cozy! I will probably be putting other books from the series on my TBR list to get to eventually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/27/2011

    " Some of the language and situations were more graphic than I preferred, but the story itself was interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/5/2011

    " This was a good mystery, but it wasn't a "funny & cute" petsitter mystery. "

    " The story was ok, but I couldn't get over the fact that Dixie (who use to be a deputy) was hiding things from the police for no good reason. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 1/5/2011
