Rescued by a Kiss

 This is a fun and quirky book by Colleen Mooney that is the first in a series called New Orleans Go Cup.  It is part mystery, part romance and funny all around.  There are plenty of dog loving moments and you cannot help but smile at Brandy's love for Schnauzers.  There are some pretty funny laugh out loud moments and even the drama/crime piece of the story is down played.  The heart of the story is the characters and their interactions.  They feel like real people with real life relationships and the ups and downs that go with them.   I really enjoyed them and cannot wait to read more in the series.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars 

I enjoyed reading this first book in the series and plan to read more. There were parts of the story that were a little annoying. Mooney writes the book in a manner that is similar to having a high speed conversation. At times things are bit too staccato and make it difficult to follow the writing. But it is definitely a fast paced story with interesting characters.

I enjoyed the interactions of the characters. Brandy, the main protagonist, her friends, Suzanne and Julia, are all quite entertaining. The whole story of how she meets Jiff and the ensuing chaos and drama is quite crazy but fun to read. The story is part mystery, part romance and just pure fun. Oh yeah there's lots of cute Schnauzers so what's not to love about that. There are some outlandish scenes in some Bourbon St clubs that make for fun reading. I look forward to reading more in the series.
