Bad Dogs and Drama Queens

by

Julie Lynn Hayes

Vinnie Delarosa and Ethan Thorne are partners—on and off the clock. Federal undercover detectives, they’re part of a covert task force designed to promote goodwill between the feds and local authorities. They lend an unobtrusive helping hand wherever it’s needed. No credit required.

Vinnie and Ethan work primarily in the Southeast region of the United States and live together in Richmond, Virginia. A mugger problem brings them to Roanoke, where Vinnie is thrown out as bait to catch the man who’s been snatching purses in a city park, but they end up with more than they bargained for. Why is Vinnie always the one who has to wear the dress? Ethan says it’s because Vinnie looks much prettier in a skirt. How can he argue with that?

Expecting to return to Richmond afterward, Vinnie and Ethan find themselves assigned a new case instead. They are to go undercover at The Stroll, one of the biggest gay nightclubs in Roanoke. Someone is terrorizing both the customers and the performers. Could they be dealing with a hate crime? Someone has to protect the drag queens of Roanoke, so it’s Vinnie and Ethan to the rescue!

Excerpt

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Julie Lynn Hayes,  author of Bad Dogs and Drag Queens.  Hi Julie, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

List the first five things you would do if you suddenly had millions of dollars.

  1. Pay off all my debts
  2. Buy a new house for myself and houses for my kids as near to me as they’d like to live
  3. Give a lot of money to charities such as No Kid Hungry
  4. Travel a lot
  5. Write a lot

Excerpt

“Remind me again whose stupid idea this lipstick was,” I huffed under my breath. Without thinking, I licked my lips. They felt greasy, and tasted even worse. I forced myself not to grimace, afraid it might crack the foundation I’d slathered on my face.

“Mine, you sexy beast,” came the smart-ass reply in my ear. “I think you got purty lips, mmhmmm.”

“Fuck you,” I growled. “You should be doing this, not me, and you know it. I did it last time.”

And the time before that. And the time before that. Wait, did I detect a pattern here?

“What I know is you look better in a skirt than I do. And you look damn good out of it too.”

My cheeks filled with heat at Ethan’s words. Luckily the darkness hid a multitude of sins, my embarrassment being the least of them. Hopefully, no one else was listening—I knew I’d never hear the end of it. Just what I needed—to be the object of ridicule of the Roanoke PD.

About Julie

Julie Lynn Hayes first began publishing short stories and poetry in the 1990’s, when it was a different ballgame altogether, and Ebooks hadn’t been dreamed of yet. That changed in 2010 with the acceptance of her first romance novel. She’s come a long way since that first book appeared, and is finding the journey a very educational one.

She lives in St. Louis with her daughter Sarah and her cat Ramesses. She often writes of two men finding true love and happiness in one another’s arms, and is a great believer in the happily ever after. She likes to write in different genres, to stretch herself in order to see what is possible. Her great challenge is to be told something can’t be done—she feels compelled to do it.

When she isn’t writing, she enjoys crafts, such as crocheting and cross stitch, needlepoint and knitting, and she loves to cook, spending time watching the Food Network. Her favorite chef is Geoffrey Zakarian. Her family thinks she’s a bit off, but she doesn’t mind. Marching to the beat of one’s own drummer is a good thing, after all. Her published works can be found at Dreamspinner Press, eXtasy Books, Wayward Ink Press, and Amber Quill Press.

Review: When I first saw this I took one look at the cover and wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it.  That is until I realized that the woman on the cover is actually Vinnie in drag.  From that moment on I knew that I had to read it.  The title was the best I have come across in a long time.  I was thinking ok mystery and suspense will not have the humor in it, then the title told me something different.

I started reading this and could not put it down.  It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.  I absolutely thought that the dog was the perfect addition to these two.  This story gave me everything I could want in a story and had changed my mind about mysteries and suspense stories.

Vinnie and Ethan are Federal undercover detectives that go in and help other law enforcement agencies. The first time you meet these two sexy men, Vinnie is dressed up as a sexy woman trying to catch a mugger. What they got was a dog that liked to steal women’s purses. Talk about a partner in crime. Then their boss informs them that there is trouble at one of the clubs where drag queens are getting hurt. Well Vinnie does look the best in a dress and heels.

This was one of the best suspense and mystery stories I have come across, and the number one reason was the fact that it had so much humor in it. I had so much fun in this and definitely can’t wait till the next book comes out. I will definitely be checking out what other books this author has out.

This is one book that I would recommend reading.
