Rescued By A Kiss

One kiss and her world turns upside down. Can she solve the case that threatens his life?

Brandy Alexander never thought living in the Big Easy could feel so dull. And as she waits painfully for her long-time cop boyfriend to propose, she’s not sure their hearts are beating to the same tune. But when she’s kissed by a handsome stranger at Mardi Gras, her electric thrills turn to shock when he’s shot right before her eyes.


Watching in horror as he’s whisked away by an ambulance and haunted by his gasping request, Brandy races to track down the mysterious person his sweet lips named. But when the clues take her from Bourbon Street’s bright lights and into a dark den of corruption, she’ll have to put everything on the line to prevent her charming man from eating another bullet.

Can Brandy survive her city’s greedy criminals and save her charismatic smoocher?

Rescued by a Kiss is the first exhilarating novel in The New Orleans Go Cup Chronicles mystery series. If you like authentic settings, jazzy characters, and whip-smart dialogue, then you’ll love Colleen Mooney’s quirky story.

Listen to Rescued by a Kiss to crack open a crime in the Crescent City today!

Dead and Breakfast​


The Big Easy has plenty of songs…

…a lot of dancing and a bit of murder.

Will Brandy be able to prove her friend is innocent?

Brandy learned to be loyal in Catholic school. She doesn’t judge. When her best friend, Julia, an ex-stripper turned hotelier, finds the first guest of her new Bed and Breakfast, murdered, she’s on her way to help.

Why do the police think Julia did it?

There’s a lot on Brandy’s plate, but she’ll make time to help Julia. There’s also the issue of her oldest school chum’s marriage and the puffy-skirted, 18 bridesmaids-palooza, that she suspects may have some behind-the-scenes matchmaking in the works.

Will she get paired with Dante?

As things start to heat up with Jiff and the clues take her in an unexpected direction, Brandy may have to make a choice.

Sleuthing isn’t easy.

But dating is the real challenge.

You’ll love this second installment in The New Orleans Go-Cup Chronicles because this cozy mystery will keep you guessing about everything.

Drive Thru Murder

A Murder Scene Where Nothing Is As It Seems
Brandy witnesses a murder at a drive-thru joint with the unlikely name of CLUCK IT: CHICKEN BY THE BUCKET. And then it turns out nothing at the scene’s what it seems, or at any rate, nobody’s who they seem. Seems CLUCK IT is not just a place to clog your arteries, but also a transgender hangout. And with that discovery, you know you're in New Orleans.


The local, New Orleans Color Never Stops
randy’s complex Irish Channel family develops the kind of problem that is a lot more fun on the page than in real life. What to do when your sister gets pregnant with one of the next-door twins, but she doesn't know which twin? (Be glad it's Brandy’s problem, not yours.)

She also finds a mysterious box of valuable jewelry under her closet floor, becomes the unofficial caretaker of the Tarot reader across the street who knows the future but can never predict when she’s going to get so drunk she’s going to fall into her own bushes and develops a strong suspicion about one of her other neighbors, all the while juggling the two Romeos.

Luckily, Brandy Is Better At Solving Mysteries Than She Is At Wrangling Her Boyfriends
The reader can rest assured she’s eventually, and in fine style, going to weave together the myriad mysterious strands that confound the police (who happen to count Boy Friend # 1 among their ranks) and present them the solution with all the panache of an old-style detective like Hercule Poirot, yet none of the pretension. You can almost hear her wondering, “Did I do that?”

Fans of cozy mysteries and chick-lit heroines will delight in Brandy’s flat-out lovability and Mooney’s almost offhand yet spot-on (and often hilarious) observations of everyday New Orleans life.

If you like contemporary stylish heroines like those popularized by Janet Evanovich, Elaine Viets, Stephanie Bond, and Gemma Holliday, and humorous mysteries like those by Donna Andrews, Dorothy Cannell, and Lisa Lutz, you're going to get a girl-crush on Brandy Alexander.

Death by Rum Balls

Flying Solo, Brandy Is Still Determined to Make the Best of the Holidays.

This will be Brandy’s first Christmas without Dante, but she is determined to enjoy the holiday going to parties and even a “Yappy Hour” with Jiff and both of their schnauzers. Brandy stops to deliver mistletoe for Julia’s party that night when Frank, Julia’s handyman, drags her into the mayhem surrounding the guest list. It seems everyone Julia invited has a grudge against her, and they all confirmed they are coming to her party.


Why Is Everyone Suddenly Out to Get Julia?

It seems Julia’s neighbors, her cooking club, the business association, members of her Pilates class, her brother, and even some of the ladies from her church group, all have a reason to dislike Julia, a lot! When gifts with strange contents start to show up on the day of the party, Frank sees it as an omen of things to come. Is someone only trying to embarrass Julia or will that someone take it a step further to even a score?


There’s no place like New Orleans to have a good crime, and the holidays are no exception!

Dog Gone & Dead

A much-needed vacation turns deadly.

A weekend getaway at the beach with Jiff was just what they both needed, but their plans for a relaxing escape are ruined when Brandy discovers a dead body under a pier.

Does a dog hold the key to solving the case?

There’s a leash wrapped around the dead woman’s wrist and no dog. Brandy finds the missing dog and more than she bargained for with flash drives sewn in the dog’s collar. Brandy learns the murdered woman’s ex-husband is connected to the sleepy little beach town in more ways than the dead body. The local Policewoman thinks Brandy could help if she agrees to go undercover.

Will Brandy’s determination to find the truth make her the next target in a world with hitmen, payoffs, and murder?

Fireworks, Forensics & Felonies

It was the perfect date night...

...until they saw their friend’s house explode.

Was it an accident with the Fourth of July fireworks? 

Brandy and Jiff barely have time to catch their breath. The house destroyed, the mystery began. No bodies were discovered in the rubble. Where were Sophie and Ian? 

Fearing foul play, Brandy gets to work. 

As she starts to dig...

...newly issued insurance policies are discovered. 

It smells like motive, but much isn’t adding up. The more she presses, the more her old friend, now captain of Detectives, Dante, tries to get her off the case. Is he just doing his job, or is he trying to protect her? Could there a hint of jealousy about Jiff? 

Does Ian and Sophie’s new business figure into the mix?

Brandy had her hands full on this one.

voodoo, victims & vows

On a foggy night in the French Quarter...

Brandy and Jiff were on a walk when they met him.

Why did he hand her a note?

There was something strange about the fellow. His clothes and hat made him look like a newspaperman from the '60s. But it was what he had typed on that piece of paper that deepened the mystery. A sort of prediction, that claimed three things would happen and they couldn’t stop it.

Who was he?

Why did Brandy believe him?

She had always been good at reading people. The Big Easy was known for attracting all sorts of odd people, but this guy seemed like a straight shooter. Brandy would have put the message out of her mind if they hadn’t seen the body.

Along the banks of the bayou...guarded by an alligator, was a corpse.

And somebody was watching them.
