Back in her hometown, Nora reconnects with old friends and makes some new ones - like Nick, the charming feline who seems determined to be her cat. But not everything about Cruz is friendly. Writing for a local online magazine, Nora investigates the curious death of socialite Lola Grainger. Though it was deemed an accident, Nora suspects foul play. And it seems that her cat does too.
Apparently, Nick used to belong to a P.I. who disappeared while investigating Lola Grainger's death. The coincidence is spooky, but not as spooky as the clues Nick spells out for her with Scrabble letters - clues that lead her down an increasingly dangerous path. Whether fate put her on this case or not, solving it will take all of Nora's wits, and maybe a few of Nick's nine lives.

Mediocre at best
The "Nick & Nora" idea is appealing, and the idea of leaving a rat-race job to return to your roots is OK. But the whole Mafia/witness protection concept is too "out there" for me. A former crime reporter moves back to her small town which just happens to contain not one, but two protected mafia informants and assorted Mafia bad guys - too much to believe.
No. There are many other books out there that are much better that I would recommend.
It could have been smoother. The narration seemed stilted at times, with awkward pauses. The only reason I didn't rate the narrator lower is that she did a good job of making a different voice for each character.
If the next book in the series was available free at my local library, I might listen to it or read it. But I wouldn't pay for any more.
Terrific Read, Lots of Fun!
