Quinn’s series debut is full of action, clever twists, sexual tension, and a likable heroine who sounds like a less tough but more academically accomplished Stephanie Plum.

Synopsis

Not many people could save a man’s life with lip gloss, car keys and three
cinnamon-flavored condoms while under gunfire. But Madison McKenna can. And it’s
not the least of the talents of this sexy physicist-turned-detective. Blending
wit, sensuality and science, Madison uses counter-top technology and fierce
determination to solve the attempted murder of her boss, Jake Thibodaux. It
won’t be easy; science-savvy she is, streetsmart she isn’t. Worse, Jake’s
powerful ex-partner, Hunter, is determined to freeze her out of the
investigation, and the local police would happily toss her in jail to keep her
out of their hair. As Jake clings to life, Madison and her helpers— a charming
bull-rider and his prize calf, Spinal Snap, a pair of bickering cops, and Jake’s
hard-bitten mistress—delve into Jake’s past, revealing a man very different from
the one Madison thought she knew. Even her subconscious comes to her aid,
infusing her dreams with tantalizing, surreal, clues. Driven by need, Madison
and Hunter form a steamy, antagonistic partnership; until she learns that he has
his own motives for murder…
