I would like to thank both NetGalley and Beyond The Page Publishing for allowing the opportunity to read and review this book.
Good Reads Synopsis:
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 . . .
I gave this cozy mystery 4 stars. This is the fifth book in the series.
What I like about this book is Nick the cat. He is such a smart cat and friendly. His personality is just right. Nora is a great owner of this orphan cat. She treats him like part of her family. Even though is the fifth book you can pretty much follow along with the lives of the characters in the book.
This book is about a suicide of a PI. Several people who know this man don’t believe he took his own life and so they go and investigate his suicide. One other is killed but it is deemed an accident since he was hit by a car.
Nora knew the second person who died and goes investigating on her own with the help of Nick. She has many people who help her along the way. When the clues all come together she goes the final step and finds herself in a little trouble.
This is a fast moving book and I had a blast reading it.
