While going to the home of a vacationing client in Sarasota, Florida, professional pet-sitter Dixie Hemingway, a former sheriff's deputy, stumbles upon a traumatized cat and the corpse of a mysterious intruder, sending Dixie on a search for her missing client--and a killer. A first novel. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

Dixie Hemingway knows first-hand that many things in life are worse than a dirty litter box. Once happy as a Florida sheriff's deputy, she lost everything when senseless tragedy shattered her world. Now Dixie laces up her sneakers, grabs some kitty treats, and copes with one day at a time as a pet-sitter. Her investigations deal strictly with "crimes" such as who peed on the bed . . . until she finds a dead man face down in an Abyssinian's water bowl. With the local cops stymied--including a handsome detective who catches her eye--she decides to clip a leash on a lead or two and go sleuthing herself. Dixie soon finds out that the Abyssinian's pretty owner has vanished and left behind a shocking past, a lonely cat, and a chilling reason for Dixie to start running when she's out walking the dogs.

Not as pointedly funny on South Florida corruption as Hiaisson, and you pretty much have to like cats and not mind too many descriptions of sun on the water, but it is well written, has likable characters, and works out the plot well.
