Praise for the Nick and Nora Mysteries
“Nick and Nora are a winning team.”—Rebecca Hale, New York Times bestselling author of How to Paint a Cat
“Nick and Nora are the purrfect sleuthy duo!”—*Victoria Laurie, New York Times bestselling author of the Psychic Eye Mystery series
“A clever debut featuring a wild and furry sleuthing duo…a big ‘paws-up’ for Meow If It’s Murder!...a fast-paced cozy mystery spiced with a dash of romance and topped with a big slice of ‘cat-itude.’”—Ali Brandon, New York Times bestselling author of Plot Boiler
"Claws for Alarm is clever, imaginative, and entertaining as a kitten stalking a make-believe mouse. The plot features all my favorite elements: an enterprising amateur sleuth, a quirky supporting cast including a kitty with purrsonality plus, yummy recipes, a rambling old house, and twists galore. As a die-hard fan of cats and cozies, I'm putting T.C. LoTempio's Nick & Nora Mysteries at the top of my Must-Read list!"—Wendy Corsi Staub, New York Times Bestselling Author
“An absolute delight and Nick and Nora make a purr-fect mystery-solving team! I couldn’t put it down!”—Michelle Rowen, national bestselling author of From Fear to Eternity

I liked very must. Can't wait to read the next one. I did find it a bit too descriptive in what people were wearing. Who cares what brands of shoes over and over again in a murder mystery. Just say this person is rich or this person really likes shoes. Stop hiring us over the head with brands. I enjoyed the story but at one point I thought I might be reading an advertisement.
I did like Claws for Alarm, but it wasn't as engaging as Meow If It's Murder. Nora rushes to the rescue of her sister, Lacey, who has been accused of murder. The pair don't get on (for reasons that aren't very clear), but blood is thicker than past grievances and Nora sets about proving her sister's innocence. Head detective on the case - and past boyfriend/one-night-stand - replaces the cute FBI guy from book one; though LoTempio is clearly setting up for FBI guy and Homicide guy to fight over fiery red-head Nora in the next book... Nora promptly ignores requests to leave the sleuthing to the police, and nearly gets herself killed several times.
I found the mystery in this story intriguing. Twists and misdirects abounded, and I didn't know who all of the baddies were and why they were bad until near the end. There were some good red herring characters! However, I've got to say I wasn't 100% invested. Sure, I wanted Lacey to be cleared and the bad guys to be caught. But there wasn't a great deal of character development, and Nora seemed dead set on working against the Police at every turn, despite assurances that they also didn't think Lacey was the true killer. I wouldn't say it went as far as being frustrating, but the book definitely lacked some of the brightness of the first book in the series. I'm looking forward to the next book, and am hoping it will regain a little of the pizazz of book one!
