Even Cat Sitters Get the Blues

Blaize Clement, Author Minotaur Books $23.95 (248p) ISBN 978-0-312-34093-3
In the third Dixie Hemingway mystery (after 2007\x92s Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund), Clement blends elements of cozy and thriller to produce an unusual and enjoyable hybrid. Pet-sitter Dixie, a former sheriff\x92s deputy on leave after the death of her husband and daughter, finds a corpse in the gatehouse of a mansion, but leaves the body for someone else to find. Traumatized by having killed someone recently, Dixie wants nothing to do with homicide, but fate decrees otherwise. Her new client, a mysterious scientist wracked by pain, owns the mansion, and Dixie ends up caring for him and his pet iguana as she tries to solve the murder and juggle her conflicting feelings for heartthrob Lieutenant Guidry and seductive attorney Ethan Crane. Clement\x92s deft hand with plot and characters is sure to delight readers. (Jan.)
