The McKinleys...Where Mystery and Romance Meet (Books 1-3) (McKinley Mysteries) by Carolyn Arnold

The McKinleys...where mystery and romance meet. From bestselling author, Carolyn Arnold, comes Sean and Sara McKinley.
The McKinley Mystery Series combines romance, mystery, humor, and adventure. They are free of foul language and graphic violence.
Enjoy this boxed set, which includes the first three McKinley Mysteries: The Day Job is Murder (An introductory short story, approximately 13,000 words.) Vacation is Murder (A novella, approximately 26,000 words.) Money is Murder (A novella, approximately 28,000 words.) ˃˃˃ THE DAY JOB IS MURDER
For Sean McKinley, working in Albany PD Homicide is great except for one thing--he's in love with his partner Sara Cain. And even though she feels the same way about him, she convinced him they should just remain friends. Two years later, nothing has changed.
Yet, during the course of a murder investigation, when Sean finds out an old friend has died, it results in something that has the potential to change his life--and Sara's--forever.
It goes to prove one unexpected act of kindness has the power to ripple throughout the years and bring happiness...even when The Day Job is Murder.
There's only so much relaxation two former detectives can handle--even if they're on their honeymoon. With their recent fall into money, Sean and Sara McKinley should be living it up, enjoying the sun and beaches of Cancun. But heading into their third week they've had just about enough lying around.
When the husband of a couple they've befriended is kidnapped and held for ransom, it has the McKinleys putting their experience to use. As they set out in the unfamiliar landscape of paradise, the investigation will have them risking their lives to stop a killer.
Old Man Quinn left Sean more than his billions--he left him a murder to solve.
Inside the chest given to him from the executor of Quinn's Will, Sean finds a key and implicit instructions that the contents are for his eyes only. After Sean discovers where the key fits, he finds another letter--Quinn wants a closed case reopened, and Sean is shocked to learn who the victim was.
As Sean and his wife, Sara, uncover clues, it leads them from the back rooms of Quinn's corporation to the streets of New York City, but they will stop at nothing to get to the truth.
My review: The McKinleys...Where Mystery and Romance Meet (Books 1-3) (McKinley Mysteries) by Carolyn Arnold
This is the first three books in the McKinley Mysteries.  I had read the new book and liked it so much I went and bought these.  Now I am on the 4 book of the series.
In the first book Sean McKinley and Sara are partners and cops.  They love each other  but agree to not date so they can remain partners.  Sean was left something in the will of a kindly man.  He did not know that the guy had billions  and left everything to Sean.
Sean and Sara McKinley have quit there job and got married.  They were on a honeymoon in Mexico.  They met new friends and one of them is kidnapped.  Sean and 'Sara get involved.
In the third book they are home from there honeymoon and find a letter asking them to solve his late daughter's murder.  Quin had left Sean billions so they went up to New York and look into Cindy's suicide.
These are likeable characters.  It would be fun to have the whole world open to you.  Sean and Sara keep finding themselves involved in solving crimes. These are shorter novellas. Clean reads.
The setting is from New York to Mexico. They are a good pace.
