Review of Cat Got Your Diamonds
Review (4 Stars): Cat Got Your Diamonds was the purrfect mystery that was filled with humor, charming characters and a delightful storyline. Lacy Crocker has the perfect life in New Orleans, running her pet boutique called Furry Godmother and being close to her beloved family. When a string of robberies puts Lacy in the middle of a murder investigation, she is going to need more than her keen fashion sense and her trusty glitter gun to get her out of this one.
This was a great start to a new mystery series and I loved the light-hearted humor that was laced throughout this mystery. Lacy was a very sweet and fun character and I loved all the charm of having this mystery set in New Orleans. Such a beautiful city and I felt as though I was right there with Lacy as she was trying to solve this mystery. This is the first book in the Kitty Couture series and I’m definitely coming back for more.
