Fun Read!
Poison Me - Cami Checketts

Poison Me is a romantic suspense by Cami Checketts. Ms. Checketts has provided readers with a great story loaded with fun and lovable characters. This story does drag a tiny bit in a couple of places but it's still worth the read. Chanel leaves Las Vegas when her boyfriend gets her fired from her job and takes a position as activities director at a retirement home. Jake is a doctor and visits the retirement home often to see his grandmother. Chanel and Jake's story is packed with drama, laugh out loud humor, spice, action, murder, suspense, secrets and a little angst, but not enough to be overwhelming. I enjoyed reading Poison Me and I must confess, Ruby and Ellie were my favorite characters. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Sweetest Poison (Pitfourie #1) by Jane Renshaw
The Sweetest Poison (Pitfourie #1) - Jane Renshaw

@GoddessFish, @hotchoc84 (Charlotte), #Mystery, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

When life has cast you in the role of victim, how do you find the strength to fight back?

 

When she was eight years old, Helen Clack was bullied so mercilessly that she was driven to a desperate act. Now she is being targeted once more, but this time her tormentor’s identity is shrouded in doubt.

 

When her life starts to disintegrate, she flees home to the wilds of north-east Scotland, and to the one man she knows can help her – Hector Forbes, the dubiously charismatic Laird of Pitfourie, with whom she has been hopelessly in love ever since those hellish days in the school playground, when he was her protector, her rescuer, her eleven-year-old hero.

 

But is Hector really someone she can trust?

 

And can anyone protect her from the terrible secret she’s keeping?

PEARLS AND POISON by Duffy Brown
Pearls and Poison - Duffy Brown

I love this series.  Kiki and Reagan crack me up as they go out and about solving murders.  This time Reagan must find the killer of the man running against her mother for alderman.  If she cannot solve it, mama is going up for it.  I love how Reagan manages to upset everyone.  She leaves Boone befuddled.  She is not going to listen to Boone to keep her nose out of it but she knows the cop sent from Atlanta to handle the case is not going to look further than her mom so she does what she must.  I have so much fun watching Reagan and Kiki get into trouble and managing to survive.

Will keep you up to finish
The Poison Thread - Laura Purcell

June 2019 My Book Box Mystery Selection

Doretha Truelove, one of the central characters of this book, reminds one a bit of Doretha in Middlemarch. Both women see marriage as secondary, though Truelove seems far more open to the idea of romantic love, and both women have an interest in academic pursuits as well as helping those less fortune.

If Doretha Truelove is akin to Doretha from Middlemarch, then the other central character in the book Ruth, might harken to Dickens’ Oliver. As she says early in her story, if she had been born a boy, things might have been different.

Ruth has a tough life and she has been arrested on suspicion of murder. The jail that she finds herself in is, in part, administered by Doretha Truelove who wishes to study people’s skulls. The novel unfolds via these two points of views. The mysteries, and there is more than one, is whether or not Ruth can kill with her sewing talent and the issue of Doretha’s father. She faces an incoming step mother she has issues with, and she wants to marry.

The narrative is good, even if the voices are not entirely distinct – Ruth’s speech is less formal and more “yes miss”, and that is about it – and the use of mystery and magic works quite well. The ending is a humdinger, but it actually, truly works.

Doretha’s story is weaker than Ruth’s. In part this could because of narrative issues in terms of answers. But Ruth’s story is great. Based, in part, on a real-life case of young seamstress who was killed by her mistress, Ruth is an Oliver Twist story with a girl at the heart of it, and therefore, it becomes far darker. It is, perhaps, a truer story of what happens to lower class woman in Victorian London than Dicken’s Little Dorrit.

The book breathes its time and place. And while certain plot points raise an eyebrow at times (Ruth is attending a finishing school at the start of the novel), there is an energy and drive that carries the book and reader. I literally did not go to bad until I finished this book. So, it might have wrinkles that stop it from being a five star (I’m sorry, I know why the finishing school is there, but it doesn’t quite work), it is a book you will not want to put down.
