|Book Description||Author Blaize Clement has earned herself a legion of fans with the first five books in her pet-sitting mystery series. Now Blaize's beloved heroine, Dixie Hemingway, is back, and when Dixie's latest assignment turns dangerous, it's up to her to save the day. , , Dixie, no relation to you-know-who, is helping an injured and cantankerous man take care of Cheddar, his orange shorthair cat. Soon Dixie finds herself totally smitten with the man's adorable infant great-granddaughter. But the baby's naive young mother has enough knowledge about certain powerful local big-mney honchos to send them to prison for life, and they are willing to do anything, even kill her baby, to shut her up. , , Caught in the turmoil caused by the grandfather's prickly pride, the granddaughter's misguided plans to regain her young husband's respect by telling the truth in court, and the ruthless determination of wealthy villains to preserve their ill-gotten millions, Dixie is the only person who can rescue the baby. And she has to do it without letting law-enforcement people know -- not even Lieutenant Guidry, with whom she has a new romantic relationship. , , Does Dixie have her claws sunk too deep to make it out of this one? Find out in book six of Blaize Clement's splendid series.|

Clement also infuses this entertaining story with a thoughtful meditation on death, survival, and moving on. It's a lesson the animals in our lives already know." --Richmond Times-Dispatch on DUPLICITY DOGGED THE DACHSHUND "Don't let the cutesy title fool you. This isn't one of those lightweight, frothy 'fun with animals' stories... It's tough, gritty, and edgy. One of the strongest points of Clement's work is her knack for building suspense slowly but steadily, to the point where you have no idea what peril might be lurking just around the bend." --Sarasota Herald-Tribune on DUPLICITY DOGGED THE DACHSHUND "Clement uses the animals in Dixie's care...to enrich her plot, creating in the process an entertaining cozy, one of the few set in South Florida, land of noir." --Booklist on DUPLICITY DOGGED THE DACHSHUND "A knockout read." --Laurien Berenson, author of Doggie Day Care Murder on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "Clement's assured cozy debut introduces an appealing heroine." --Publishers Weekly on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "Impressive...a sure keeper, with well-developed characters, seamless prose, and a winning plot...[a] commendable new series." --Mystery Lovers.com on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "A first-rate debut." --Booklist on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "Entertaining...Dixie is a complex, well-conceived character and the plot fast-moving and believable." --Kirkus Reviews on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "At once a cozy mystery for animal lovers and a jarringly earthy hard-boiled whodunit about human corruption. Clement's sleuth, Florida pet-sitter Dixie Hemingway, is an engaging combination of vulnerability and toughness, but the real heroine of the story is a gritty Abyssinian cat. A good read!" --Susan Conant, author of All Shots and the Holly Winter Dog Lover's Mysteries on CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT SITTER "Kick off your flip-flops, find a hammock, and settle in for a fun read.
