Cami Checkett's Poison Me Blog Tour


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.

“And how is it you just happened to drive past my house?”
Chanel’s face reddened. She’d hoped he wouldn’t ask the obvious question. “I got lucky.” The hot sun had nothing to do with the sweat forming on her brow.
Jake looked like he was trying hard to suppress a smile. “Right,” he drawled out the word. “Did Grandma tell you to come over here?”
“No.” Chanel paused, studying the large leaves on a poplar tree, dancing in harmony to the stirring of wind. “Ellie did.”
Jake chuckled. Finally relaxing, he shoved his hands into his pockets. The scar was deep red and extended the length of his crooked forearm. One thing was certain. It was no burn.
Chanel lifted her eyes to his. She couldn’t allow herself to focus on the wound, especially now that he’d finally allowed her to see his bare arm. “Ellie dared me,” she said. “The deal was I had to come over here and talk to you.” Chanel looked down. “The winner gets the loser’s serving of chocolate pound cake at supper tonight.”
“Quite a dare,” Jake said. “You playing spin the bottle later?”
She laughed. “Whatever it takes to entertain Ellie.”
“Sounds fun.” Jake pursed his lips, emitting a low whistle. “Invite me next time you play.”
Chanel flushed with warmth, imagining Ellie daring Jake to kiss her. “I’ll make sure you get an invite.”
“So you have to waste your night with me for a slice of cake? You couldn’t think up a better prize for the winner?”
Chanel pumped her eyebrows. “Have you had the chocolate pound cake?”
“No, but I hope it was worth the agony of having to come see me.” He winked.
She smiled. “I’ll let you know later.”

Praise for Poison 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.
