Lacy Marie Crocker’s whimsical pet couture has gained a following in New Orleans’s cozy Garden District, and word of mouth has traveled all the way to her favorite fashion designer, Annie Lane. Lacy’s thrilled when Annie schedules a private session at her home to discuss a companion line for her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment, she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats--and one very dead Annie.
Lacy takes the kittens home to care for them until they can be properly claimed by Annie's family or friends, but after a busy day of work, she returns home to find them missing. And when Lacy learns the cats are set to inherit Annie's fortune, she begins to wonder if the killer was after the kittens all along. Now Lacy will stop at nothing to save the Siamese and find justice for Annie--if the killer doesn’t sink his claws into her first.
Luckily, Lacy has the help of handsome NOLA PD homicide detective Jack Oliver to help her catch the cat-napper before its too late in Cat Got Your Cash, the endearing second Kitty Couture mystery from Julie Chase.
Cat Got Your Cash (Kitty Couture Mystery #2) by Julie Chase is a sweet and fun cozy mystery. Lacy Marie Crocker designs clothes for pets. She is trying to make a go of it without help from the deep pockets of her parents. She is thrilled to have gotten an appointment with hometown celebrity designer Annie Lane about possibly creating a companion line for her designs. Kind of like mommy/doggy outfits. Too bad that when she shows up for her appointment she finds Annie dead. Now the killer seems to be after her. Good thing she has hunky homicide detective Jack Oliver and the also hunky Chase Hawthorne looking after her. Food, fun, fashion and frolicking Cat Got Your Cash is a delightful read.
