Poison Me - by Cami Checketts

About the Book: 

Jake Merrill was raised by his grandmother, Ruby, and her hilarious friends. After a suspicious death at the retirement home where Ruby lives, she enlists Jake and Chanel, the beautiful activities director, to help her find the killer. But secrets Ruby has kept for decades threaten her family and the man she’s always loved but could never have. Chanel’s unstable ex-boyfriend, a presumably dead relative, and vicious criminals add to the confusion. Time is running out as Jake, Chanel, and Ruby desperately search for clues to solve the murders and fight to save those they love. 

My Review:

This was a quick, fun read. The witty "gaggle" of retired lady friends cracked me up with their snide comments and super sleuthing around their retirement home. I could almost see my "little grandma" chuckling around with these hilarious ladies. I loved how the older character's got the same amount of romantic attention as the younger ones - especially the quips about Michael being a hottie. 

The characters had depth and personality in their imperfections and the relationships were believable. Overall the plot kept me going - wondering who was killing the residents - and in the end, I was surprised. However, the killer's motive felt a little flat to me. If you're looking for romance, it was cute. If you're looking for suspense, you may find it a little weak. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a fun read. 

Praise for Poisen Me:
"Poison Me made me laugh out loud and thoroughly enjoy myself. I wish I had a friend like Ruby! Snappy dialogue, romance, and a strong sense of family made this book well worth reading." - Rachel Ann Nunes, bestselling author of Line of Fire and Before I Say Goodbye
