Book Description

Nick and Nora aren’t just pussyfooting around this time as they deal with a missing person’s case and murder.

While catering a gala for the Cruz Museum, Nora Charles agrees to look into the disappearance of director Violet Crenshaw’s niece, a case previously undertaken by her frisky feline friend Nick’s former owner, a private eye whose whereabouts are also currently unknown.

As Nora and her curious cat Nick pull at the string of clues, they begin to unravel a twisted tale of coded messages, theft, false identities, murder, and international espionage. Nora dares to hope that the labyrinth of leads will not only help them locate the missing young woman, but also solve the disappearance of the detective. That’s if Nora can stay alive long enough to find him...

My Review

Crime and Catnip is the third Nick and Nora Mystery by T.C. LoTempio. This is the first book in the series that I have read. It can easily be read as a stand alone novel even though it is part of a series.

Crime and Catnip features Nora and her cat Nick. Nick was previously owned by a detective who is missing. Nora hopes to find out what happened to him. Nora caters a  gala for the Cruz Museum and agrees to look into the disappearance of director Violet Crenshaw’s niece. Nick's former owner had been working on that case before his disappearance.

Interesting cozy mystery. The cat Nick plays a large role in the story and the solving of the mystery. Enjoyable and suspense filled mystery for fans of cozies and fans of cats!
