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.

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

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?

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.

Fun read. Certainly not serious or heavy but an enjoyable diversion.

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.

The FBI agent is hiding out from the mob with a new name, a new job running a small inn on an island in Maine, and her unrepentant hippie mother making her nutz. Then a body washes up on the shore in at the back of the inn but the lackluster deputy just blows it off as an accident with no evidence or interest. So she gets in touch with the hottie who is her former partner who speeds to the rescue looking all Men In Black taking charge and the sparks begin to fly, especially as she had been getting friendly with her contractor. Lots of laughs over the antics of the mom who has absolutely no filters. This is a fun book, not a police procedural. Traci Odom manages to accomplish the narration without totally cracking up!

Cookie James is a retired FBI agent hiding out from a mob boss who wants her dead. She has changed her name, moved to a tiny island off the East coast with very few people knowing where she is or what she is doing. Cookie is trying hard to adjust to her new life as co-owner, with her Mother, of a small Bed and Breakfast when a dead body appears on the beach behind them. Will Cookie let the sheriff handle the investigation? Does she turn to the FBI for help? Does she decide to date the hunk of a handyman helping restore the B&B?

A somewhat lighthearted cozy mystery situated on an island off the coast of Maine. Cookie is on an extended leave of absence from the FBI, hiding out from a gangster she helped bring down when her mother (who came with her) discovers a corpse in the water. The story is built around the ensuing investigation after Cookie calls in her ex partner after discovering that the deputy in town is writing it off as a stranger falling in the water and accidentally drowning. Bits of humor shine through as Rain, Cookie’s mom, keeps Cookie continuously worried about her hippie ways. They have purchased the only inn on the island and in between bits of investigation, Cookie is trying to run the inn prosperously, if only her mom wouldn’t run off the guests with her behavior.

Adorable characters. Wonderful setting. Great story. Be prepared to read it all in one sitting.

AWFUL! Her mother comes running about a corpse that tried to drown her and she's topless. To each their own but the character is nuts! I dumped this garbage after a couple of chapters!

Simple story but no real depth. I have a hard time with a woman who gets lost in lusty daydreams in the middle of a murder investigation. Felt like something was missing.
