Since inheriting her mother's sandwich shop, Nora Charles is more about hot grilled paninis than cold-blooded murder - until her sister, Lacey, is arrested. The victim, an esteemed art collector and Lacey's bullying professor, was stabbed in the heart. Apparently, all over a lousy grade. Off campus, things were just as dicey. The prof had an ex with secrets, a trophy wife set to inherit a fortune in masterworks, and a scorned student mistress.
Going undercover, Nora realizes that investigating this crime is the biggest test of her sleuthing career. Because if she fails, even Nick's animal instinct won't be enough to rescue Lacey from a perfectly executed framing.

This is a great series. It has well written fully developed characters and a well planned plot. It has humor, suspense, a little romance, and an intriguing mystery. This is a great mystery and I look forward to the next book.
At least the cat sounds like a cat this time and they dropped the phone French accent Chantal had been using. The Ma Cherie has to go! No one says Ma Cherie with such regularity if at all!
Character development is definitely better this time round.
This is book 2 in the Nick and Nora series and I am hooked. I love Nick. I'm hoping that the next book in the series (Crime and Catnip) will be released in audio. I don't have time to read, but I have time to listen to books. These are fast paced and interesting. I like the characters - although I'm hoping they don't end up with a "triangle" as was hinted at - guess I'll just have to wait for the next installment to find out. I have pre-ordered these books as they become available and I'll be watching for the next one.
