Poison Me by Cami Checketts
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.
I’ve loved every book I’ve read so far of Cami’s, and so I wasn’t surprised when I loved this one also. Not only is this murder mystery, it also has secrets, forgiveness, betrayal and humor. I really liked that the book had “older” characters. But the big plus is that they really aren’t your every day run of the mill type of retirees. They’re not only investigating the murder of Ruby’s friend, they also play matchmakers, and the stuff that comes out of their mouths…
This is a really light read with just the right amount of mystery, suspense, humor and romance. It would be a great book for anyone looking for something that is just plain fun to read, with a little murder thrown in.
