Pick Your Poison is a witty mystery set in
With the characters and the profession set in place at the end of the story Leann Sweeney sets us up for what is sure to be an exciting series. I can imagine all kinds of cases Abby could involve herself in. Half way through the book I was sure (as I yawned) I thought I had the love triangle figured out. As I ended the book I was pretty confident Sweeney was going to leave the bumbling girl detective-two handsome men scenario to others and give me a new and interesting heroine to follow. Although Sweeney has Abby bumble quite a bit I was pleased to see Abby used personal effects, the internet and newspaper sources to assist in tracking down keys to the gardeners past. Now that I know who Abby Rose is, a little about her past and what the future holds for her I’d like to see Sweeney have her pursue the world of existing sources to track down her suspect. What can I say, I love libraries, genealogies and document digging. Pick Your Poison had a good story, interesting characters and a twist I didn’t see coming. I look forward to reading Sweeney’s new book A Wedding to Die For and others in the Yellow Rose Mystery series.
