Welcome to the review of Cat Got Your Diamonds, Book 1 in Julie Chase’s Kitty Couture Mysteries!
About the Book:
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 #1.
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.

Review by Bree:
This was a great book to a new series. I loved the Furry Godmother, a shop that focused on styling pets in New Orleans’ high style. Lacy is a great character, strong and fun. And imagine her surprise to go from making pet costumes to murder suspect. Good thing there is a brooding cop coming in to the book that will make things more exciting. I found Jack to be my favorite detective. It is hard to create such lovable characters, but Julie Chase has gone above and beyond. I love how unique she is! I have read a lot of cozies and this is new type of theme, I thought it was adorable. It held the charm, mystery and perfect murder a cozy reader will love!
