Poison Me Spotlight and Excerpt


Poison Me by Cami Checketts

Jake Merrill was raised by his grandmother, Ruby, and her hilarious friends. After a suspicious death at the retirement home where Ruby lives, she enlists Jake and Chanel, the beautiful activities director, to help her find the killer.

But secrets Ruby has kept for decades threaten her family and the man she’s always loved but could never have. Chanel’s unstable ex-boyfriend, a presumably dead relative, and vicious criminals add to the confusion. Time is running out as Jake, Chanel, and Ruby desperately search for clues to solve the murders and fight to save those they love.

Praise for Poisen Me

Poison Me made me laugh out loud and thoroughly enjoy myself. I wish I had a friend like Ruby! Snappy dialogue, romance, and a strong sense of family made this book well worth reading.

Excerpt 

Jake studied Chanel for a moment and then turned to Ellie with a warning glance. “Don’t even think about it, Aunt Ellie. I’d rather take you to dinner.”
Ellie laughed. “I’m flattered, dear, but Marissa informs me I’m too old.”
“Darn right,” Marissa said. “Disgusting the way you throw yourself at the boy.”
Ellie chuckled. “At least I have fun,” she said, then hollered, “Chanel? Get out here and meet Ruby’s grandson.”
Ruby watched the interchange with trepidation. How would Jake handle Ellie’s interference? Would he ever allow himself to fall in love again?
“Aunt Ellie,” Jake said under his breath. “Stop, please.”
Chanel glanced at Ellie and held up a finger.
“I can find my own dates.” Jake jammed a hand through his dark hair.
Ellie grinned. “I’m sure you can, but you never involve me, and you know how I hate to be left out.”
He crossed his arms and frowned, not answering. Ruby wished Ellie would leave him alone, but someday he’d have to put himself back in the dating market. What better time than now? Chanel was a darling girl.
Seconds later, Chanel hung up the phone and walked to their table. Her eyes flickered to Jake before she focused on Ellie. She pulled a bit of her hair forward, shadowing the large birthmark that started at the corner of her left eye and disappeared on her forehead beneath her gold-highlighted hair. “Good morning, ladies. Can I do something for you?”
“You sure can.” Ellie jabbed her finger at Jake. “We need you to take this fine young man off our hands.”
Jake’s face darkened. Ruby waited, wondering if he would explain he wasn’t dating and probably never would be. Instead he plastered on a smile and stood to shake the activities director’s hand. “I’m Jake and these sweet—” he stared pointedly at Ellie “—ladies are giving you a hard time.”
