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: 5 out of 5 stars 

This is my first book by this author and I was very impressed  with her writing. I really loved this book and looking forward to going back and reading the other two books in this series.

Crime and Catnip was a very enjoyable read and I was hooked from the first page to the last. 

Getting to know the characters was fun. I loved Nora and her cat. The cat seemed a lot smarter than what you would think. It was fun getting to know all the characters. 

A definitely recommend read for cozy mystery fans. There are also some yummy recipies for Sandwiches in the book as well. Yum. 

I Volunteered to receive this book to read and review. All opinions are my own. 


About the Author…..

While Toni Lotempio does not commit – or solve – murders in real life, she has no trouble doing it on paper. Her lifelong love of mysteries began early on when she was introduced to her first Nancy Drew mystery at age 10 – The Secret in the Old Attic. She (and ROCCO, albeit he’s uncredited) pen the Nick and Nora mystery series from Berkley Prime Crime – and in Spring 2017, the new CAT RESCUE mysteries from Crooked Lane! She, Rocco and company make their home in Clifton, New Jersey, just twenty minutes from the Big Apple – New York. Catch up with them
