Pick Your Poison builds on the first two novels of the series, Drunk on Peace and Quiet and Hung Over with Grandma, but all the reader really needs to know is Stella and Jonas are middle-aged newlyweds who are plagued by Stella’s troubled brother Timmy Lee.

In this sequel, Stella and Jonas face a new obstacle, a huge unwanted natural gas pipeline crossing their mountain farm. At the same time, her brother, a suspected murderer, is pretending to be a preacher at a sunny beach town in South Carolina and is targeting a wealthy woman who lives in a nursing home there. The two plots intersect in a conclusion that features Stella’s usual pragmatic decision-making. She ‘picks her poison’ in a way that the reader may not expect.

About the Author

West Virginia educator and author Becky Hatcher Crabtree enjoys rural life on her beloved Peters Mountain in Monroe County, West Virginia. Her life experiences influence her writing, especially this year as eminent domain was used to take part of her farm for a gas pipeline. In this story, her main character, Stella, faced some of those same issues. In actuality, Becky sat chained to a 1971 Pinto, her first car, across the pipeline path in a short-lived attempt to slow construction. She notes that Stella may have handled the problem with more sense.
Crabtree taught and coached in remote Alaska villages where she experienced Arctic cultures and activities prior to retiring to rural West Virginia.
