Overview

New Corpse In Town (Secret Seal Isle Mysteries, Book 1) by Lucy Quinn

FBI agent Cookie James is enjoying her extended leave from the agency on Secret Seal Isle, managing her quaint inn and flirting with the oh-so sexy-handyman, Dylan Creed...until her sixty-year-old mother goes skinny dipping and is almost drowned by a corpse.

A phone call to the sheriff should mean the end of Cookie's involvement, but when it's clear the sheriff has no interest in the investigation, Cookie calls in reinforcements...her ex-partner Hunter O'Neil. Suddenly it's like old times while the pair questions the residents of Secret Seal Isle. Except it's not. Now she has both Hunter and Dylan vying for her attention, a wayward hippy mother, and a potential killer on the loose.

With her love life heating up, her mother lighting up, and all signs pointing to the most unlikely suspect, Cookie does the only thing she knows to do--focus on solving the case.

About the Author

Lucy Quinn is the brainchild of New York Times bestselling author Deanna Chase and USA Today bestselling author Violet Vaughn. Having met over a decade ago in a lampwork bead forum, the pair were first what they like to call “show wives” as they traveled the country together, selling their handmade glass beads. So when they both started writing fiction, it seemed only natural for the two friends to pair up with their hilarious, laugh-out-loud, cozy mysteries. At least they think so. Now they travel the country, meeting up in various cities to plan each new Lucy Quinn book while giggling madly at themselves and the ridiculous situations they force on their characters. They very much hope you enjoy them as much as they do.

Deanna Chase, is a native Californian, transplanted to the slower paced lifestyle of southeastern Louisiana. When she isn’t writing, she is often goofing off with her husband in New Orleans, playing with her two shih tzu dogs, or making glass beads.

Violet Vaughn lives in coastal New Hampshire where she spends most mornings in the woods with her dogs, summer at the ocean, and winters skiing in the mountains of Maine.

I would have given this short story a five star, except for that I didn't care for the constant distraction of the main male characters. Still, it's a good read for rainy afternoons.

I wanted to like it, but it missed the mark for me. I think the author intended it to be a mystery mixed with humor and some steamy romance. There is nothing wrong with the concept, but the execution is stilted and amateurish. It feels forced and awkward, and, somehow, a little tacky.

More wordy than needed

This was an OK read Not great but not boring either. I kept wondering about the references to her past life and those weren't resolved. Does this mean there will be a sequel?

Simple quick story. No complicated plot, so if you like an easy mystery then read it.

The best part was that I had to see what happened instead of figuring it out. Great job ladies! I like surprises

I liked it, so much so I bought the other books. They are a quick read but I found them to be a lot of fun. I like the setting and I like the characters. The only problem, by the fourth book I was wishing she would pick already. I have the fifth book still to read so we will see.

Love the suspense along with the twists and turns! I especially love Rain's shenanigans!

Good, but not great read. It was interesting, a whole lot of male posturing, which was strange because it did seem like a fairly equal balance of men & woman on the island.

This was a fun read. I liked the characters, and the mystery aspect was pretty decent. There was a bit of romance, or should I say lots of sexual tension! The investigation moved along nicely with suspense and multiple possible suspects. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
