Overview

If Grace Cassidy had known she was going to find a naked corpse in her hotel bed, lose every penny she had in the world, and encounter zany characters straight from the Mad Hatter’s tea party, she might have kept her usual poise when she spotted husband Charlie’s mistress at their business convention in San Francisco. She definitely wouldn’t have left in a temper to drive up the northern California coast. And most important, she wouldn’t have stopped at the obscure Bed and Breakfast called Wimberly Place.

Brew a hot cup of tea, kick your shoes off, puff up your pillow, and enjoy this, the first of the Grace Cassidy Bed & Breakfast mysteries.

"A naked corpse in her bed is only the first surprise for our heroine in Jackie King’s charming bed-and-breakfast mystery. Cozy readers will be happy guests among these lively characters."

—Marcia Preston, winner of the 2004 Mary Higgins Clark Award

"If you like bed and breakfast settings, friendly cats, delightful, quirky characters and a little tea thrown in with your murder, you’ll love The Inconvenient Corpse."

—Bob Avey, author of Beneath a Buried House and Twisted Perception

Meet the Author

Jackie King is a full-time, published writer who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma and entertains herself by murdering, on paper, the people she dislikes. She is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Romance Writers of America, Oklahoma Writers Federation, Oklahoma Mystery Writers, and Tulsa Night Writers.

THE SPINSTER, THE PIG, AND THE ORPHAN, part of the anthology Statehood Foxy Hens and Murder Most Fowl is her second novella and first published mystery. Her first novella, FLIRTING AT FIFTY, appeared in the anthology, Chik~Lit for Foxy Hens. She has published dozens of short stories about women and women’s problems and has also sold articles.

King overcame her natural reserve and learned to love public speaking and book signings. She especially loves libraries and librarians. She is willing to travel at a moment’s notice to meet and speak with new readers.

Most of King’s stories and books include at least one child or teenager and one intelligent animal. THE INCONVENIENT CORPSE contains an orphan cat who steals the heart of her heroine. This novel was born when King asked herself this question: “What would I do if I were stranded in a strange town with no friends and no money? Oh, and for fun I could throw in a corpse—a naked one—in the middle of my own bed. Could I survive by using just my determination, brains, and moxie? Hmm…”

    Warm and Fuzzy Cozy

    I LOVED this book and can't wait for the sequel as I kept thinking about the characters for days after finishing. This is a fun read that kept me guessing and wanting more. Grace found herself in an ungraceful predicament but finishes true to her name with inner strength making us women proud. Definitely a great cozy!
