About the Author

ulie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders and the Poppy Fields Adventures. 

She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination. Truth is--she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.

Action, adventure, mystery, and humor are the things Julie loves when she's reading. She loves them even more when she's writing!

I’ve enjoyed Julie Mulhern’s Country Club murders mysteries. When I saw that she had started a new series, I bought the first one without a moment’s hesitation. I’m glad that I did, though the subject matter is quite different. It is still a mystery series and is funny as a hoot. However, this series is set present day versus the 1970s. Because of the change in time, a lot of modern thinking is to be found in the book versus that of the society around fifty years ago. Polly Fields (our sleuth) is a Hollywood celebrity. Not because of anything she has done but because she looks just like her mother who is a true celebrity and has appeared in many films. Polly does not court the press but they follow her nonetheless. Polly is in mourning of a lost relationship when she decides to head to Mexico to escape unwanted attention and to deal with her grief. Once there, she finds herself in the middle of more than she bargained for. I enjoyed the story and will look forward to reading the second installment soon. It’s very different from what I have read by this author and that takes a little getting used to. Still, the book is fun and funny and takes me, as a reader, on a fairly wild adventure.

Dollycas’s Thoughts Wow, Wow, Wow! I sat down to start this book last Monday evening and I didn’t look away until I finished the whole thing. This is not a cozy mystery. This is a wild ride of action and suspense. Poppy Fields escapes to Mexico after enduring a harrowing event. She plans to lie on the beach, make one public appearance and relax. Well, that didn’t happen. The dead bodies start to pile up at a rapid pace and then she is abducted. And then there are even more dead bodies! Full of crazy twists and turns poor Poppy finds herself in all kinds of dangerous situations. I love Poppy, that girl needs to think on her feet and she does for the most part, but there are some situations you just need to let happen and hope and pray there will be another way out. Ms. Mulhern has topped herself and knocked this way out of the park! She partners suspense with humor in a way I believe only she can. She has created a fantastic protagonist. I was cheering for Poppy the whole way. The pace was fast, the plot was fabulous, and the dialogue was fluid. Such as exciting read! This story has moved to the top of my Best Reads of 2018. I can’t wait for the next installment! Bring on more Poppy Fields as soon as possible!

From Mary Kazen @ Rabid Readers Book Blog Ready for a hilarious action packed adventure? Poppy Fields is the daughter of a famous actress. After dealing with a tragedy she accepts an invitation to a resort in Mexico. A free week stay to take some pictures for promotion of the resort, What could go wrong? Plenty. Before Poppy knows it she is thrown into a murder investigation and learning that things in her life aren't as they seem. I loved this story. Poppy had me laughing out loud from the first page. She is a character everyone will love. I found myself throwing myself in the story. I felt like I was on this adventure. My husband even a few times asked me what was wrong as I was reading and I had to ask him to be quiet because I was in the mix. Just when I thought I had the story figured out, this book would surprise me and I couldn't put it down until I got to the end. And the way it ends leaves room for more with Poppy. I can't wait for more! I highly suggest this book for mystery and action fans.

SENSATIONAL! Julie Mulhern’s Fields’ Guide to Abduction (A Poppy Fields Adventure) is absolutely sensational! What a way to kick off a new series! Mulhern has created a dynamic new series that is full of excitement from start to finish. Her list of characters include those that are quirky, some that are very endearing, many that are very treacherous and then there’s the very unforgettable heroine Poppy Fields. Poppy has led an interesting life. She’s had it all but she’s missed the opportunity to have the things that are the most important needs of everyone. That makes her a perfect unwitting target for both good and evil. Poppy just wants a free trip to a friend’s resort in Mexico. What can possibly go wrong? Ask her again at the end of her trip! Who knows - she may end up being the best actress in her family, a well compensated author or being a government agent. I was provided an ARC of this book by the author. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence. I have already preordered my own personal copy to add to my collection.
