Soiled – Lin Phillippi

SoiledThe first Shannon Patrick Landscapes Mystery introduces us to the wonderful Shannon Patrick and her long-suffering wife Karen. Shannon a landscape designer and Karen, a collectibles dealer, live in Palm Springs with Mooch and Bailey, their two quirky cats.

Shannon has an uncanny ability to find trouble at every opportunity, leaving Karen at her wits end. She has already had several close calls but if trouble is to be found, rest assure that Shannon will find it. A visit to a clients home starts a chain of events that has Shannon facing all kinds of misfortune -stumbling across a pool of blood and shattered glass is just the beginning.

Her hunger for the truth leads her down a dangerous road and her antics place both hoer and Karen in danger. As the suspense, intrigue and tension build we find her dealing with a smuggling ring, mystery women, a biker gang, a sexy police officer and a fight for her life.

Lin Phillippi bioThis is an outstanding debut novel, combining mystery fiction with slapstick comedy. I had several laugh out loud moments and was so enthralled I struggled to put the book down. Within five chapters I found myself checking to see if she had other titles.

It’s well written, perfectly edited by Katherine V. Forrest and highly entertaining. My only disappointment and yes I only have the one, is that I don’t have another Shannon Patrick Landscape Mystery to read. Ms Phillippi please give us many more because the first is magnificent.
