Publisher's summary

It was a kiss to kill for....

Brandy Alexander’s the real deal. Yes, that’s her real name and no, she’s not a stripper, but her best friend Julia is. Brandy still lives with her parents in the Irish Channel and she’s sort of semi kind of engaged to the boy next door, who’s one of New Orleans’ finest. In fact, Dante, the BF, is such a thoroughgoing New Orleanian he always manages Mardi Gras parade duty on his own block. So you'd think Brandy might be a little self-conscious when a suave smoothie in one of the gentlemen’s walking clubs mesmerizes her into a big fat Mardi Gras smooch right in front of him. But not a bit. Because after all, it's Mardi Gras, and also for another good reason: “That kiss was long, slow, hot, unlike any kiss I’d ever had in my life.”

A first date that gets bloody...

She makes a date to meet Mr. Good Kiss after the parade (Yes! Right in front of Mr. Right Next Door) but she arrives just in time to see him get shot, but fortunately not shot dead. Before he passes out, he pulls her close and whispers, “Save Isabella.”

Wall Street Journal best-selling author Colleen Mooney delivers a zany, offbeat thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You’d think a mystery that begins with an eligible man taking a bullet might be a bit dark, but Colleen Mooney has something else in mind, something like a screwball chase all over town, from Lee Circle to the Lakefront, with a stop at Charity Hospital, and finally to the French Quarter’s favorite gay dance club, at all times accompanied by Schnauzers, one of them named Geaux Cup.

In Colleen Mooney’s funny, romantic, delightfully meandering cozy mystery, you gon’ have a authentic New Orleans experience, dawlin’! And a wild ride into the bargain.

Nice Short Romantic Cozy Mystery for Young People

I was approved for a review copy of Rescued by a Kiss by StoryOrigin. This was a very entertaining cozy mystery that takes place in New Orleans during Mardi Gras with a young woman, Brandy Alexander things change when she kisses a handsome stranger in a marching group. This young man whispers in her ear to meet him at the end of the parade and she is so intrigued that she goes to dangerous and funny lengths to find this man.

Family plus Furry & Funny Friends in NOLA

If you’re ready for a raucous read with a zany cast this book is for you. The flirty female lead Brandy is one happy, hyper, hilarious lady living in New Orleans. Add in Mardi Gras with a dose of murder full of her foolish family & friends to make this mystery marvelous! Not a moment passes without these crazy characters creating chaos. Uncertainty about the status of her relationship with her main man plus an unexpected kiss with a sexy stranger creates complications in her love life too. The wonderful addition of her fostering & rescue of special schnauzers weaves a trail throughout the story. I’m definitely looking forward to more love & laughs in this series.

A New Orleans Stephanie Plum-esque adventure

I described this book as a New Orleans Stephanie Plum-esque adventure in that the likeable main character (Brandy Alexander - although not a bounty hunter like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum) finds herself in smack dab in the middle of a shooting and then a kidnapping along with other trouble all within a short time of having "the kiss of her life" with a guy she didn't know at a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. I was hooked by the opening of the story and was not disappointed. There are quirky, over-the-top secondary characters (Brandy's best friend, Julie and a protector in long-time friend and neighbor, Dante- a New Orleans cop. I was interested in reading/listening to this book as I enjoy cozy mysteries and grew up in New Orleans. I enjoyed hearing of streets and places I knew including it brought back memories of Sunday lunches at Ye Olde College Inn restaurant. The author, Colleen Mooney did a good job in capturing the flavor of New Orleans life and the tradition/annual event of Mardi Gras. The narrator was good with good distinction in character voices so the story/characters were easy to follow. This book had a little of everything...mystery, romance, adventure, and humor. I look forward to reading/listening to other books in the series. I received a review copy of this audiobook for free at my own request and have left this review voluntarily.

How much is that doggy in the window

Girl meets boy at MadiGras parade, boy kisses girl, they meet at the end of the parade and boy gets shot. WHAT? If that isn't bad enough the girl's boyfriend who is a cop shows up and almost drags her home. Now if that doesn't make you want to read this story than maybe you just don't like a romance with a little punch Oh and don't forget the most adorable little dog either. There we have a hit- New Orleans, gorgeous girl, great looking guy, cute dog and yes the cop boyfriend. Loved it.

Great fun!

Schnauzers, NOLA, Mardi Gras and attempted murder with a side of mystery and romance. What's not to like? Add in hilariousness, snarkfest, and great characters and this read was a winner!

What a Kiss!

Rescued by a Kiss is the first of Colleen Mooney's books I've listened to, and it was FAB-U-LOUS! The characters have SUCH big personalities, which include weaknesses, like the rest of us, so I completely related to them. New Orleans came alive to me through her descriptions, and was gorgeous! The criminal element was just dark enough to make me anxious about what would happen next, but not so much that it ruined the fun in the story. The ending was terrific and funny. I cant wait for the next listen!
