Murder Faux Paws: A Nick and Nora Mystery

by T. C. LoTempio

The story has the unique twist of a cat who communicates through scrabble tiles, which I found to be a very fun element of the book. I really looked forward to what the cat had to say! 5 STARS
~Nellie’s Book Nook

Murder Faux Paws is a captivating cozy with a fascinating cat and a diverse cast surrounding him. I am excited for this series to continue and for Nora to learn just a teeny tiny bit of restraint. Oh who am I kidding, she is never going to change and she is going to scare the heck out of us again and again. And I will keep coming back for more.
~Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book

I do recommend reading from book #1 so you can learn all about this detective duo and what makes them tick. T.C. LoTempio has become a “must-read” author for me.
~Socrates’ Reads Books

If you love cozy mystery books with PIs, FBI’s, sisters, friends, love interests… you get the picture! I think all cozy mystery lovers will be delighted with this entertaining book.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

I enjoyed the mystery that was impossible to figure out before our smart and tough protagonist nailed it. A nice solid four stars.
~Here’s How It Happened

The author’s suspenseful and startling reveal had me on the edge of my seat as I turned pages faster and faster and with the final conclusion.
~Cinnamon and Sugar and a little bit of Murder

Our two Main Character’s really carried the story in such a way that will have you feeling as if you are right there with them creating a fabulously fun read that is sure to be enjoyed by coy fans. I totally loved it.

Dead men tell no tales, but in the riveting new Nick and Nora Mystery, they sure leave a lot of clues . . .


When a local PI’s untimely death is ruled a suicide by the police, budding sleuth Nora Charles has no intention of letting sleeping dogs lie—or sleeping cats, for that matter. Certain it was a case of foul play, Nora rouses her trusty sidekick Nick and launches an investigation of her own. Then a second PI is murdered, and Nora knows the two men were on to something—and that she’s on to something too.


Following the enigmatic clues left by her late predecessors, Nora soon uncovers a plot that involves a local politician, missing campaign funds, and what could be a bogus real estate deal. But when hints of treason surface, what started as small-time thievery soon balloons into a matter of national security. With the uncanny Nick sniffing out—and spelling out—leads, Nora follows a trail that will take her to the heart of a shadowy conspiracy, and into a trap set by a conniving culprit that will have her wishing she had Nick’s nine lives . . .
