    Love the story and the writer....they deserve 5 stars, but I'm very disappointed with the electronic book. It is MISSING PAGES! The pages are missing at critical parts of the book. When you pay this much for an electronic book, ALL THE PAGES should be there. Someone needs to read these books electronically to be sure all the pages are there before selling them.

    Loved It!

    Leann Sweeney puts a new twist on the detective thing. Instead of being your run of the mill detectvive, Abby specializes in adoption cases. This is the first in the series and I loved it. I loved reading how Abby finds her calling. There were twists in here that I didn't see coming. A great, fun read! Enjoy!

    I Also Recommend:

    Outstanding Debut!

    Pick Your Poison is an outstanding debut!!! Leann Sweeney has penned a saucy, sassy, lovable character in spitfire Abby Knight!

    Leann delivers the goods & there is no sleuth like Abby ~ she is a standout!

    It's hard to believe Pick Your Poison is Leann's first mystery. I wondered if she was writing incognito.

    Trust me, I did my own bit of sleuthing to make sure Sweeney wasn't writing under a hush~hush pseudonym. Yes, it is that splendid.

    Leann's setting is a character all its own. I wanted to loll poolside w/ Abby, Webster & Kate. I'd sip on Raspberry Lemonade w/ crushed ice while kissing Webster in between dips in the luxurious pool.

    Yes! I imagined living in River Oaks. I wanted to visit Houston & Galveston while reading this delightful series.

    Leann described the setting so distinctly she deserves recognition for that alone. I felt the scorching Texas heat cloying me like molasses.

    Pick Your Poison showcases impressive characters. Abby may be an amateur sleuth by cozy standards but there is nothing amateur about Abby! Pick Your Poison has absorbing characters that make you give a darn!

    Despite the fact that Leann Sweeney is one of my absolute favorite authors, I will tell you a little too much is given early on, but it is a debut & she has only gotten better as the series progressed.

    Now that that's out of the way...

    Pick Your Poison is chock-full w/ action, mystery, romance & an uproarious fun time!

    I don't know about you, but in today's erratic economy where on earth can you find a boisterously wild & exciting adventure for $6.99?

    Grab a copy ~ copies to keep around for gifts is even better ~ of Leann Sweeney's Pick Your Poison.

    Pick Your Poison is top-notch! Leann Sweeney deserves a platinum dagger.

    Leann doesn't try to write funny~ it is a natural talent.

    Leann is one of my comfort reads... no matter what she takes me away from it all.

    "Don't Mess with Texas" "Don't Mess with Abby Rose"!!!

    Fabulous First Mystery! Abby's a hit!

    Abby Rose is trying to decide what to do with her life. Since she has a large bank account, she doesn¿t have to rush to decide. Her twin Kate is soon moving out to be with her boyfriend, and Abby doesn¿t know what she will do with the large house their father left them ¿ it¿s too big for just her. After she discovers her gardner, Ben, dead in the greenhouse, she realizes how little she knew about him. She begins to look into his life so that she can express her condolences. That just opens up more questions, like who killed Ben¿s wife years before? And why was he working for Abby¿s father? Abby contracts with her ex-husband, who swears he is clean and getting his life together, to help her renovate the house in Galveston. It hasn¿t been lived in for years. She finds herself having to interact with him more than she likes. The sexy detective from the Houston P.D. who is investigating Ben¿s death, adds some spice to Abby¿s dull life. Especially when he tells her that Ben was poisoned. Now Abby is determined to unravel the mystery surrounding Ben and who killed him. She finds more questions to have to find answers to. In her investigation, she finds herself in many sticky situations. Can she discover the truth before someone puts an end to her? This is the first Yellow Rose Mystery. LeAnn Sweeney has a real winner. I had trouble putting this book down. Abby and Kate are terrific. The Texas setting is fabulous. I¿ve always wanted to go to Galveston, and I feel like I¿ve at least had a short visit there. I just started reading A Wedding to Die For, the second in this series. It looks to be just as great as the first. I highly recommend this book!

    Graet mystery

    After their adoptive father died, Abby and Kate became heiresses, inheriting the mansion, the business and the art. Abby spends her days by the pool and avoiding the advances of her ex-husband. One day the yardman Ben tells Abby that he needs to speak to her and Kate later that evening. She agrees and falls asleep by the pool only to be awakened by the dog barking................................ She finds Ben dead in the garage and later learns that he was the victim of cyanide poisoning. She also finds out that he was a suspect in the killing of his first wife, also by cyanide poisoning. Ben¿s second wife convinces Abby that her husband was innocent and asks her to find his killers. A determined Abby does just that and her investigation leads to revelations that put her at the mercy of a ruthless killer who know secrets that were kept from her............................... This is Leann Sweeney¿s debut novel and it is a dandy amateur sleuth novel once you accept Abby investigating a crime. What helps is that the protagonist is stubborn and determined, a woman intending to keep an impulsive promise though secrets that are decades old come to light and hurt the living. PICK YOUR POISON is fast-paced and contain many action scenes but it is the characters that make this who done it a cut above the average. This author has talent with a capital T........................... Harriet Klausner
