Overview

"I love 'Queenie Baby' Diana Hudson – she's one part Stephanie Plum and one part rock goddess! I can't wait to see what she does next!"
- Gemma Halliday, New York Times bestselling author of the High Heels Mysteries

From debut author C.A. Burke comes the first installment of a wacky, romantic comedy series about the misadventures of wannabe rock star, Diana Hudson.

Meeting your hot new boss in a bar while singing karaoke—bad. Being fixed up with your old high school boyfriend by your meddling sister—annoying. Making out in your sister's minivan with said boyfriend—embarrassing. This week is shaping up to be a doozy for aspiring singer/songwriter Diana Hudson.

‘On the wrong side of thirty’ according to her mother and still living the bohemian lifestyle of a musician, Diana is having a double martini day. Although a sought after performer on the not-so-happening Annapolis, Maryland bar scene, Diana works as a temp at Greene's Staffing to pay the bills. Her assignment this week: help the cape-wearing Mr. Vann Pyre find love online. Unfortunately for Diana, the only man in her life for months has been Max, her fluffy, white Shitzu-Poodle with a crooked overbite and a bad attitude. But unexpectedly, Diana finds herself up to her chin in men. Her mysterious new boss, Mark Greene, smells so good she'd like to hang him from her rearview mirror, and her chiseled, super-sexy high school sweetheart, Rick Ellis, is back to sweep her off her feet. When Diana's love life goes from nonexistent to off the charts, will she give an old romance a second chance? Or will she take a chance on new love?

I <3 this book! What a fun light read! The supporting characters were hilarious and made me laugh out loud.
Goodreads - Amy _
I laughed my ass off as the characters were introduced from the 'Free balling' granddaddy to the sister who supports but also nags the hell out of the main chica mixed in with rednecks and honestly its like being at home. Plus add a side of hotties and to me you have an awesome story

Meet the Author

Christina wrote her first novel, a time-travel romance, more than twenty years ago. Writing fell by the wayside as family and career obligations took over. She earned advanced degrees in business, taught for colleges, managed staffing agencies, and started several entrepreneurial ventures, until she found her way back to fiction writing through the unlikely avenue of metastatic breast cancer. She believes laughter is the best medicine and hopes her readers find a cure for what ails them following the wacky antics of the characters she creates. Christina, her husband, Jim, and their two children live in Dover, Delaware with the family sidekick, a shitzu-poodle mix named Max.

    Christina Burke has written another fun, and exciting read with Queenie Baby on Tour. Plan to block out the whole day though, because you won't want to put this one down! Diana &quot;Queenie Baby&quot; Hudson has hit it big with her song, The Rum Song, and finds herself stuck performing it with rowdy pirates and even rowdier fans when she realizes that some accidents she's been having might not be so accidental after all. She soon finds that she's had a hit put out on her and is being targeted by an assassin known only as The Spider. Throw in her wacky family, loyal boyfriend, bodyguard, and a CIA operative and the story goes into high gear with everyone trying to keep her safe. Even when she returns to her day job at the temp agency, the action doesn't stall as she finds herself at a tampon factory, newly obtained by a company whose initials are PMS. You'll soon find that you're laughing out loud on one page and cringing at the close calls Diana finds herself in on the next. Overall, Queenie Baby on Tour is a delightful, quick read that will keep you guessing not only at what trouble Diana will find herself in, but also at figuring out the identity of the evil, elusive Spider.

    This book was awesome. I loved granddaddy he is a hoot.
    This is a great read. I couldn't put it down. Diana is a woman who is going after her dreams even in her late 20s she still wants the dreams to come true. She in the mean time works for a temp agency she gets a little more then she bargain for that week at work. This story takes all the twist and turns that will keep you wanting to know more.




    I am going to start book 2 in a few minutes.








    5 stars all the way

    GOOD READ

    I liked it but, it definitely sounds like Janet Evonovich. Instead of a crazy Grandma, there's a crazy Grandpa. There were other likenesses too, but, it still was a fun read.

    Not at the level of Janet Evanovich, but it is a good read.
