Claws For Alarm by T.C. LoTempio

Welcome back Cozy readers. I'd like to invite you to join me for another romp with Nora and her awesome cat Nick in part two of the Nick & Nora Mystery series by T.C. LoTempio, called Claws  For Alarm. 

From the back of the book:

“The purrfect sleuthy duo”* is back, and this time murder hits close to home for Nora Charles and her partner Nick, a stealthy little feline gumshoe groomed to solve a shocking crime.

Since inheriting her mother’s sandwich shop, Nora Charles is more about hot grilled paninis than cold-blooded murder—until her sister Lacey is arrested. The victim, an esteemed art collector and Lacey’s bullying professor, was stabbed in the heart. Apparently, all over a lousy grade.  

Off campus, things were just as dicey. The prof had an ex with secrets, a trophy wife set to inherit a fortune in masterworks, and a scorned student mistress. Going undercover, Nora realizes that investigating this crime is the biggest test of her sleuthing career. Because if she fails, even Nick’s animal instinct won’t be enough to rescue Lacey from a perfectly executed framing.

My thoughts:

I really love this series! I love Nora and, most especially, Nick. As with the first books, there is some humor to lighten the mystery aspect which I always think is awesome. I found it really neat how Nick was able to help out. In fact, solving this mystery would have been impossible to do without him. 

Speaking of mystery, there is still the backstory mystery from the first part that I am so eager to hear more about: what happened to Nick's human, Nick the human? And the settings! Wow, I just loved how totally immersive the writing was when it came to the cool old buildings.  You really want to jump in this with all paws! Get both parts, you won't regret it. 

Take some time to browse the other great mysteries available from Berkley Prime Crime. While you are there, you can sign up for the newsletter so you never miss a new release. I must warn you though, after browsing my wish list is longer than I could probably read. You can also connect with them on Twitter where can happen across a fun giveaway as well.
