Cat Got Your Cash: 10/30/19
Cat Got Your Cash by Julie Chase is the second book in the Kitty Couture mysteries. Lacy Marie Crocker's favorite designer wants to partner with her on a product line. Excited at the prospect, she agrees to meet with her at her home. Instead, she finds the designer dead, and two frantic siamese kittens.
After she finds the kittens and takes them in, Lacy finds herself being stalked by someone wearing an oversized cat head. Her home and business are both broken into. She needs to find out who murdered the designer before the same thing happens to her.
I found the pacing better in this sophomore volume. The mystery itself was fairly easy to figure out but the cat headed stalker was an unsettling detail.
As the title hints, the cats, do in fact have the cash. Rather, they are well looked after in the deceased's will. Whoever has the cats has the money. Figuring out who is desperate enough to kill for the cat's money is the key ot solving the mystery.
The third book is Cat Got Your Secrets (2017).
