The Lady of Corpsewood Manor, Book 4 of the Craige Ingram Mystery Series by Hawk MacKinney

Craige and Spinner are ex-seals.  They're retired from the service and have their own careers now.  The problem is that when one becomes a seal, you might retire, but you're still a seal.

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours shared a copy of this ebook with me for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

For some reason, I expected a more laid-back story about a murder mystery.  You throw some seals into the mix and the words laid-back don't apply.  Mr. MacKinney writes a busy dangerous tale with two dead bodies in the beginning.  There's also a "dead" body walking around alive; it's Spinner's love from the past.  Craige is wishing she'd go back to being dead; she double-crossed them on assignment.  No such luck.

The pace picks up when Craige is interviewing someone on the arson site who shouldn't be there.  The guy wasn't telling him anything and when his head blows apart, it's apparent he won't be in the future either.  With the lost love around, both men are suspicious she might be involved in their case.  It's possible, but there has to be more to it than that.

These big boys play tough and are determined to find out going out what's going on.  The only problem they have is the other side is playing tough, too.

It's a fast read that keeps your attention and makes you wonder how it's all going to end.  I enjoyed the read, why don't you give it a try?

Thank you for hosting The Lady of Corpsewood Manor…AND thank you for the review…both are much appreciated. Serial characters & plots from a previous title in the Ingram series came together hot & wicked…several of my readers were considerably more than a little upset with what I did with 'their' character. Thank you -
