Enjoyable and suspense filled mystery for fans of cozies and fans of cats!
Crime and Catnip was a very enjoyable read and I was hooked from the first page to the last.
~Books, Dreams, Life
I loved reading this especially the various mysteries, including what happened to Nick and his coded messages it was great!!
Nora and the feisty feline Nick are back and better than ever!
Crime and Catnip has several strengths – strong writing by T. C. LoTempio, lots of interesting characters, elements of international intrigue, a mystery that is complex and well plotted.
The writing is superb which makes the book flow really well.

This book is a real brain twister and while it isn’t your typical cozy thanks to international intrigue cryptic codes, it’s a must read for anyone who has followed Nick and Nora’s story from the beginning…and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for???
~Melissa’s Mochas Mysteries & Meows
Crime & Catnip is a highly entertaining read offering a blend of cozy mystery and suspense – with a clever feline to boot!
International intrigue, false identities, and a very clever cat will keep you guessing right up to the last moment of this cozy mystery.
~The Book’s the Thing
As a cat lover, I really enjoyed how the writer made so important the lovely cat, helping Nora investigate the crime and making him almost human, he is not just a flurry friend he is quite a detective.
I’m a big fan of this series and have been since the beginning. All three of the books in this series so far are fun, easy reads.
The author has a great flair for the mystery and keeps readers guessing to the end. She tosses in twists and turns which will satisfy all mystery lovers.

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…
