Blog Tour & Review: A Crime of Poison by Nancy Haddock

Posted by Jennifer in 4 Stars, Blog Tour, Cozy Mystery, Review / 1 Comment

The Silver Six are known for their arts and crafts—but they’re about to be tested in the art of catching a crafty killer.

It’s early October, time for the Fall Folk Art Festival and Bake Sale in Lilyvale, Arkansas. Leslee Stanton Nix, known as “Nixy,” is in charge of making the event run smoothly. The festival will benefit the Handcraft Emporium, the store Nixy manages with her aunt and her five sassy housemates, collectively known as the Silver Six. Delicious baked goods, beautiful crafts, and time with friends—Nixy is confident that the festival will be a success.

But things become knotty when local troublemaker Cornell Lewis is found dead with a plate of Snickerdoodles from the bake sale. Two members of the Silver Six are accused of cooking up a murder plot, but Nixy knows that the cookies weren’t literally to die for. With time running out, Nixy and company must catch the actual killer… before the Silver Six find their number permanently reduced to four.

Review of A Crime of Potion

Review (4.5 Stars):  This is the third book in this delightful mystery series and you are bound to have a good time with the Silver Six.  A Crime of Potion was a well-written charming mystery and Nixy is a great heroine that will keep everyone on their toes.  I loved getting backstory about how the victim affected many of the Silver Six and that there was no shortage of suspects who may have wanted to kill this horrible man.  I loved following the clues along with Nixy and her sexy beau, Eric and this mystery was definitely a winner for me.  Looking forward to reading book number four to see what trouble these wonderful characters find themselves in next.
