PRAISE for Playing With Poison

"I just love Jessie Hewitt. She is the bomb." Melina Mason, Melina's Book Blog

"This was one of my favorite submissions so far. I loved the main character, Jessie Hewitt, a middle aged romance writer (ex-pool hustler) having the time of her life." Amazon contest review
"These characters are a hoot!! A lighthearted cozy that will put a smile on your face." Lori Caswell, Escape With Dollycas Into a Good Book

"A fast paced read with humor and mystery blended together to create the perfect story." Yvonne, Socrates Cozy Cafe

"Playing With Poison is a lighthearted, fun, breezy, witty page-turner of a mystery novel." Peter Lacey


Pool shark Jessie Hewitt usually knows where the balls will fall and how the game will end. But when a body lands on her couch, and the cute cop in her kitchen accuses her of murder, even Jessie isn't sure what will happen next. Playing With Poison is a cozy mystery with a lot of humor, a little romance, and far too much champagne.
