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.”

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
