If Looks Could Kill by Eileen Dreyer

Poison Pen

Bestselling author Chris Jackson is perfectly happy with her quiet life. After all, what's not to like? Her next door neighbor is an unemployed ventriloquist, her literary agent is a kleptomaniac, and her house is only six blocks from the Mobile Home Hall of Fame. If she ever needs a getaway, she's got a Harley.

Then the murders start. Murders taken form the pages of her own books. Murders that threaten her sanity, maybe her very life. And she has only a burned-out ex-Chicago cop to help her...

Bestselling author Chris Jackson is perfectly happy with her quiet life. After all, what's not to like? Her next door neighbor is an unemployed ventriloquist, her literary agent is a kleptomaniac, and her house is only six blocks from the Mobile Home Hall of Fame. If she ever needs a getaway, she's got a Harley. Then the murders start. Murders taken form the pages of her own books. Murders that threaten her sanity, maybe her very life. And she has only a burned-out ex-Chicago cop to help her... Humor, suspense and a gritty murder mystery--I loved this book. Chris Jackson is quirky and likable.

Pretty awesome if you like suspense. Chris Jackson is an author who writes thrillers. Her childhood was awful but she has found a town that has become her home and family. She still has problems dealing with the impact of her background and they only become worse when a detective from a St. Louis contacts her about murders that are patterned after her books. The new chief of police is facing demons of his owns and recognizes them in Chris. He is experience, supportive, and a little hot. There are several pretty good twists to this one. There were also touches of humor to balance the terror hanging over her. I need that balance. I would love to see a sequel but I don't expect. Will be trying more by this author.

Could use more suspense but has good characters that keep you hooked and wanting more. It's also realistic and not too over the top. I like it.

Better than your average read with quite endearing and well developed characters. Recommend this book and writer.

Not an easy read. Some quirky characters. Plot hard to follow at times and dragged at times.

After reading the summary of this book it seemed like it would be very interesting and i was excited to read it. However it was terrible, the writting sucked and i found myself skipping amd skipping over things because it wasnt interesting. It had a great storyline and could have been so good. I would not reccomend it to anyone. Ever.

Loved this book and all the characters of Pyrite. As someone else said, there was just enough humor to help offset the gruesome parts. I found it very hard to put down. When I purchased it, I think it was $2.99. At $.99 it is a MUST BUY

I did not finish this book. The writing feels forced.

Could stop reading, thoroughly caught in her story and had to find out how it ended. Then didn't want it to end!

This book was just not my cup of tea at all. I struggled to finish it. I will not purchase any more books from this author at all.

The main mystery is never resolved and that is a very cheap of the author who thinks no one noticed she put it in and then couldnt find away to explain it plus one or two other odds and ends left dangling. poor plotting if she had two nasty little barking dogs it would have helped
