About A Poisonous Page

A Poisonous Page is set in the small town of Confection, where Lexi balances managing her family’s bookshop with her social life, hanging out with her friends. When her bestie’s brother is accused of murder, Lexi rounds up the Macaroons, her bookshop’s book group and amateur sleuths, to find the real killer.

My thoughts about A Poisonous Page

This is the second book in the series and we found out more about Lexi, her friends, and the other inhabitants of Confection.

Fun, frothy, quick read with a twisty mystery, lots of suspects and the romance heats up between Lexi and Chad Berg the detective investigating the case.

What you get:

Traditional cozy elements:

?Bookshop setting

?Strong FMC

?Great friends group

?Fantastic plays off of Confection/candy/sweets names

?Small town in the PNW

?Lots of secrets, feuds, reasons to murder

?Cookie, the adorable dog sidekick

?Romantic tension with detective on the case

?Quirky secondary characters

?Best friend wrongly accused/jailed for the murder

In closing

This is a great light read, perfect for a beach or poolside.
