Review: New Corpse In Town

New Corpse In Town New Corpse In Town by Lucy Quinn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


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. 

My thoughts:

Cover/Title: The title is what drew me in. I love titles that are a little play on words.

Characters: The characters are interesting. I loved reading about all the trouble Cookie's mother Rain could get into.

Plot: Cookie and her mother Rain, move to the island to hide from her past. Then a corpse shows up an the deputy sheriff has no interest in solving the crime. So Cookie calls someone from her past to help.

Overall: This mystery is short and sweet.
