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.

What I Thought:

The cover of this book is what really caught my eye, and I am glad it did, because this was a very good read.  Lacy has opened a pet couture shop and things have been going pretty well for her.  When a client who hires her to discuss so options for her kittens, Lacy finds the client dead and the two kittens alone.  She decides to take the kittens in and later learns the kittens inherit the estate of her dead client. The kittens and then catnapped and Lacy has to figure who catnapped the kittens and who killed their owner.  This was a very entertaining read with a good bit of humor in it.  It was well written and fast-paced, making it an easy read.  I look forward to more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
