Murder Faux Paws is the fifth installment of the bestselling Nick and Nora series by T. C. LoTempio. Protagonists Nick (a tuxedo cat) and Nora Charles, who is a former reporter, now owner of Hot Bread, a popular sandwich shop. Nora is presently attending a PI course, and the substitute instructor recognizes Nora’s detective skills. He visits her at Hot Bread, and is then murdered, which gets Nora involved in a murder investigation that includes another previous murder and where one of her friends is the prime suspect.

Nick and Nora are fun protagonists, and are well developed. Their interactions are delightful, and Nick is one very talented cat. Most of us cat lovers (I have two tuxedos who are smart, but not half as smart as Nick) wish our cats could do what Nick does. LoTempio also develops the supporting characters well and while they aren’t as wonderful as Nick and Nora, they are believable and have roles that will keep readers on the edge. LoTempio does an excellent job of weaving a plausible story, and this one is good enough to keep readers wanting to get to the surprising end. Nick, who does what he wants and supplies clues to solving mysteries to Nora, seems to be able to escape whenever he wants to help his human.

All told, this is an excellent addition to this fun series, and will cause readers to want to read all of the books in the series. As a bonus, the author supplies easy recipes at the end, so readers can eat while enjoying the novels.
