Great Escapes Book Tours Book Review: Cat Got Your Secrets

Cat Got Your Secrets: A Kitty Couture Mystery by Julie Chase

Cat Got Your Secrets: A Kitty Couture Mystery Cozy Mystery 3rd in Series Crooked Lane Books (September 12, 2017) Hardcover: 320 pages ISBN-13: 978-1683312833 E-Book ASIN: B06XVWR8Q9

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.
Review: Cat Got Your Secrets is the third Kitty Couture book. This series really gets better with each book. This is one of the few series that I've been able to follow from the start, and I'm really glad I have.

Things are a little better with Lacy and her mom. They have a very interesting relationship and even if you haven't read books one and two in the series, you'll see that in the first few pages.  Mom definitely wants Lacy to be something she's not, a society lady. She can be very annoying and its easy to see why Lacy had left home

This time Lacy is working to keep her Dad out of jail, when he becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his friend. Her dad is definitely not the type you'd expect to be a suspect in a killing. He's very mild mannered, in fact, it is hard to believe that he's married to her mom.

Lacy is doing everything to try to find the killer, and it is landing her in trouble too.  She almost ends up with a restraining order and then there are the blackmail letters. (She's not the only one getting them either)

Her relationship with Chase seems to be growing too and the same goes for Jack. I'm not a huge fan of love triangles in cozy mystery series, especially when both guys are great, but I do like Chase and Jack. Its three books in and I can't really say whose team I'm on, I like both guys.

There were so many people that could have killed Walter Becker. I liked the fact that sleuthing didn't exactly get the case solved.

This is a fabulous addition to this series!
