Beth has been doing too
much. She is falling apart at the seams. Her family, job and
PTA work are wearing her down. So her friends and family and
co-workers stage an intervention. They will do chores and
jobs to make her life easier for the next 6 weeks. Seems easy
right? Not for Beth. She does not know to slow down. So after
the PTA in Review – celebrating the 80th anniversary
of the PTA, she takes one of the speakers home. Cookie Van
Doorne seems to have a bad case of the flu.
seems to be on the mend. However, several days later Beth
finds out that Cookie is in the hospital. She goes to visit
her and then goes on with her life. So it is a shock to find
out that Cookie has died. It is being ruled an accidental
overdose. Beth finds evidence that leads her to believe that
Cookie was murdered and it definitely was not accidental.
to ponder: Why is Marina avoiding Beth? Will the PTA ever
decide how to spend the money raised from the Storybook sale?
Can Jenna become the number one goalie on her team?
has been one of my very favorite series since I read the first
book, Murder at the PTA. The protagonist does take on the
case. However, she has to fit in solving the murder between
being a mom, having a full time job and handling the business
of the PTA. It is very well plotted and I kept reading to
find out what happened next. Having Marina act all mysterious
was pure genius. I needed to know what would happen to her
just as much as I needed Beth to solve the murder. So if you
like to be schooled while reading your mystery, then you should
be reading Poison at the PTA.
