Publisher's Summary

Grandeur and opulence are everything in the famed New Orleans Garden District where pets are family and no bling is too big. Opening Furry Godmother, pet boutique and organic treat bakery, is Lacy Marie Crocker's dream come true - until the glitter gun used to make her Shih Tzu tutus becomes a murder weapon - and Lacy becomes public enemy number one.

Now detective Jack Oliver is hounding Lacy, and her Furry Godmother investor wants out before his name is tarnished by association. To make matters worse, a string of jewel heists with suspicious ties to the murder case has New Orleans residents on edge. To save her dream, Lacy must take a stand, put her keen eyes to work, and unravel what really happened at her shop that night. But can Lacy sniff out the killer cat burglar in time to get her tail-raising designs on the catwalk?

Witty and whimsical, Cat Got Your Diamonds, the first in a new cozy series by Julie Chase, will be the cat's meow for fans of Rita Mae Brown and Miranda James.

What’s up with the negative reviews?

Although this mystery is not as good as a Patricia Cornwell Scarpetta book, it is still an above average cozy mystery. The characters were well developed and believable. I highly recommend this to fans of cozy mysteries, and of course cat lovers too.

Five Star for Sure!

I loved Julie Chase's " Cat Got Your Diamonds" and can't wait to listen to the next book in the series. I'm normally a historical romance reader but this book captured my interest and heart right away! Quirky characters I loved, a fast paced plot, and an ending that left me in anticipation for the next book. I want more and will be buying the series. Try it. I'm sure you will love it too❤️.

Very pleasant surprise! Pretty good read, light with a good who done it. Good character development, with a touch of humor thrown in. Excellent narrator, I already have the next book.

Everything a cozy mystery should be.

Characters that live in a world slightly too good for reality TV, even the ones who eventually are not. If you want light and airy with a decent story line read by a capably narrator, it’s a good read. After a few heavy reads this cozy mystery is like cleansing your reading palate.

Couldn’t finish reading

I found the story boring (especially the predictable “romance” angle) and I only listened up to chapter 9. None of the characters were particularly likable, including the main character who spoke in first person.
Reminded me more of a Harlequin Romantic Suspense than a cozy mystery.

Silly and fun

While some of the pet costumes seem very silly to me it makes for an enjoyable, engaging story. I loved the authors Christmas Tree Farm Mysteries written under her pseudonym, so I gave this a try. Made my crazy work day go by nicely.

It’s ok

Blah romance/mystery , got slow at times. Felt like it was very repetitive at times.

Enjoyable listen and the narrator was excellent!

I have enjoyed other books by this author (under one of their pseudonyms - I think this is one too) so I was keen to give this a go as I find it quite hard to find a good cozy mystery series to get into. I love a series because you can really get to know the main characters and the developing relationships between them usually lead to some fun moments in the story. This is a new narrator for me and I really enjoyed the performance and will look to see what else she has narrated. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in this series.

Hackneyed

Oh {yawn!}

He's deliberately obnoxious, misogynistic, and provoking... But he's SO handsome... {sigh!}

Really? How completely overused is that one? And how shallow and lacking in self-worth does a woman have to be to be attracted to an otherwise vile man simply because of his looks....?

It's really not a trait that causes me to have any empathy with the main protagonist of a story, and if there's no empathy with the main protagoist I'm not going to enjoy the book.
