Cat Got Your Secrets, by Julie Chase

CAT GOT YOUR SECRET large banner640

Setting:  New Orleans

Characters:  Lacy Marie Crocker-NOLA native and recently returned fashion designer and owner of a pet boutique. Detective Jack Oliver-former military, no-nonsense police detective.

Plot:  Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and Lacy is busy keeping her boutique stocked with holiday themed pet treats, toys, and, of course, fashionable outfits. Her mother, meanwhile, is taking advantage of the opportunity provided by an upscale – and very discreet – thrift store owner, going through the family mansion and picking out the items she can do without. While Lacy may be a little miffed at which items of hers her mom is trying to sneak out without telling her, she’s surprised when her father seems to be just as cranky. His uncharacteristic mood is definitely cause for concern – especially when Detective Oliver arrives to arrest him. A man was found dead in a walk-in freezer and Lacy’s father just happened to be a good friend . . . and the last person to see him alive. Much to Jack’s chagrin, Lacy throws herself into his investigation yet again, desperate to clear her father’s good name. But when photos and threats begin to arrive on her doorstep, threatening not only to reveal secrets from her past, but also Lacy’s life, it’s Jack who is feeling desperate to keep her safe.

Pacing:  Swift

Predictability:  Low

Wild Card:  Cat Got Your Secrets is the third in the Kitty Couture mystery series, and may be my favorite yet. I feel a little thrill of excitement whenever I see a new title in the series; I know I’m in for a great story, filled with humor, drama, action, and Julie Chase’s signature quirky yet lovable heroine.

Lacy Marie Crocker has settled into a comfortable groove back home in New Orleans, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, she’s busier than ever running a thriving pet boutique, helping her mother organize the upcoming National Pet Pageant, and untangling her complicated love life. But when delivering a king-sized order of dreidel-shaped doggy biscuits for a Saint Berdoodle’s bark-mitzvah, Lacy stumbles into yet another murder scene—and the last person to see the victim alive was her own father.

It’s up to Lacy to clear her dad’s name from the suspect list before Detective Jack Oliver has to cage him for good. But just when she starts pawing at the truth, she receives a threatening letter from a mysterious blackmailer bent on silencing her with her own secrets. And Lacy’s not the only one with bones in her closet.
