Lacy Marie Crocker’s whimsical pet couture has gained a following in New Orleans’s cozy Garden District, and word of mouth has traveled all the way to her favorite fashion designer, Annie Lane. Lacy’s thrilled when Annie schedules a private session at her home to discuss a companion line for her evening wear, but when Lacy arrives for the appointment, she enters the kitchen to two mewling Siamese cats--and one very dead Annie.

Lacy takes the kittens home to care for them until they can be properly claimed by Annie's family or friends, but after a busy day of work, she returns home to find them missing. And when Lacy learns the cats are set to inherit Annie's fortune, she begins to wonder if the killer was after the kittens all along. Now Lacy will stop at nothing to save the Siamese and find justice for Annie--if the killer doesn’t sink his claws into her first.

Luckily, Lacy has the help of handsome NOLA PD homicide detective Jack Oliver to help her catch the cat-napper before its too late in Cat Got Your Cash, the endearing second Kitty Couture mystery from Julie Chase.

My thoughts:
This was a fun addition to one of my new favorite series. I love the whole kitty couture thing going on in this book. Who would not love to have a job designing clothes for pets. Leaving her money to her cats is something that I have heard of people that have done this. You have to really love your animal to do this. I felt so bad for Cotton and Cashmere, first they lost their human to murder then they get stolen from Lacy who is trying to help them. I love that all the characters in this book are cat lovers. There is even a little romance thrown in with this mystery. This author has a way of writing that makes the book a quick and fun read. I loved the setting of this book as well. As I was reading this book I thought I had it figured out but I had to really follow the clues closely. It took me until the end to figure it all out. I am looking forward to the next book in this fun series.
