I find this series a real hoot. This is a great new cozy series. ~Kate Eileen Shannon, Rantin’ Ravin’ and Reading (5 Stars)

Filled with suspense, humor, friendships, TAX CUT is fast paced.  Well written and engaging, it was hard to put down. ~Rosalee Richland, Darla King Series (5 Stars) 

What a great read this is!  Each character was vividly portrayed.  Chelsey is a strong heroine surrounded by a zany cast of characters.  Her sidekick Bonnie keeps readers laughing.  There are also stalkers, romantic interests and evil mobsters tossed into the mix.  The story takes a million twists and turns and keeps you guessing to the end.  I really enjoyed this well written mystery.  Who knew being a Municipal Clerk could be so dangerous? ~Yvonne Herring, Socrates’ Book Reviews: (5 Stars)

New Review for Community Affairs!

Community Affairs front coverTrudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite says:  Community Affairs (Jersey Shore Mystery Series Book 3) by Michele Lynn Seigfried has all the elements for mystery, sleuthing and comedy written in one good story. Bonnie lives on the Jersey shore with her husband and two daughters. Bonnie has a good life until Senator and Lyla Spratt move in next door. Bonnie and Lyla instantly don’t like each other. Lyla does everything she can to make Bonnie’s life miserable, and succeeds. Bonnie believes and sets out to prove that Lyla is responsible for the disappearance and death of Polly Pitcher. This gets her into lots and lots of trouble. Bonnie tells the story while being held captive. She shares what Lyla has done, including among other things defacing her garage and spreading nasty rumors. Bonnie’s husband, the police and the FBI warn her to not get involved, but that only makes her want to solve the case even more.

Community Affairs is a mystery story with humor. Michele Lynn Seigfried has created characters that will make you laugh, worry, love and hate. I found myself reading late into the night because I couldn’t wait to find out what Bonnie would do next. It kept me involved right up to the ending I never saw coming. Community Affairs stands very well on its own merit. I highly recommend this book and anxiously await book number four.
