Pet Shopping with Dixie Hemingway? We may not be a cozy mysteries blog but we love reading a ‘cosy’ mystery.
One of our Twitter friends did a review of a Dixie Hemingway story for a book club discussion on Twitter and was so enthusiastic that we had to check them out. Unless you are a cosy mystery fan already you might need us to bring you up to date.
We believe that Blaize Clement has written some of the best books by a cozy mystery author. Meet Dixie Hemingway. [Our post use Amazon Affiliate Links].

Who is Dixie Hemingway?
We checked further on author Blaize Clement and the Dixie Hemingway mysteries. It turns out that Ms Clement passed away in 2011, but her books are beloved by so many that her son, John Clement carried on the series.
There are now 11 books although locating some of them may mean using Amazon’s alternative sellers due to erratic availability. This is one popular series though and you can find the books on Amazon using our affiliate link.
We have been reading, and loving Dixie – in two formats! It seems that Kobo (I have a Kobo Glo e-reader) have the first four books, not the rest, so we have to order them as printed books from America. As we love books this is no hardship!
We love the Dixie Hemingway Books
Well, they are an escape into another world for us, the heat and exotic climate of Florida, the amazing location on a set of islands off the mainland of Florida. The fact Dixie loves and cares for animals and can’t seem to keep her out of trouble!
Dixie has been threatened, kidnapped, and swept off her feet, but can fearlessly brandish a gun. She meets strange, quirky and wild people, who are as deftly described as the pets she cares for. We really feel the tropical weather and it’ almost like visiting Siesta Key itself. You enter another world the moment you open a Dixie Hemingway book.
The stories don’t dwell on blood and gore, they offer a gentler approach, and there are times when you need that, not the hopelessness of ‘reality tv’ and blood-soaked murder mysteries.

Finally, Mum and I have found that in each book, there is a nugget of truth that we can relate to. Maybe about love, or friendship or being true to yourself. We will be re-reading the ebooks and printed books more than once, to enter the exotic world of a pet sitter. This is one I think I would like to look after me when Mum goes away!
