Movies. Muffins. Murder.
Maggie Doyle moved to Ireland to escape her cheating ex and crumbling career in the San Francisco PD. When the most hated woman on Whisper Island is poisoned at her aunt’s Movie Theater Café, Maggie and her rock-hard muffins are hurled into the investigation.
With the help of her UFO-enthusiast friend, a nun, and a feral puppy, Maggie is determined to clear her aunt’s name. Can she catch the murderer before they strike again? Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the café first?

A new series from Zara Keane? Let me at it!
I have reading Ms Keane since I first stumbled across her with the Ballybeg series, and I have enjoyed everything I have read since, and Dial P For Poison is no exception.
I adored Maggie from when we first meet her. I like her take no prisoner, don't mess with me attitude. I love that she doesn't take any of the small town crap that is thrown at her.
There is a rag tag bunch of characters that are just a hoot. Some I just loved, some, well, let's just say I felt that may get what the deserve.
There were so many twists and turns in this whodunnit, that we are kept guessing right up until the last minute who our culprit is.
This book is just the right mix of humour, drama, mystery and suspense. There wasn't any romance in this story, which I was kind of expected. However, it looks like we are getting set up for some in the next book in the series, The Postman Always Dies Twice.
Can't wait to see what adventures Ms Keane takes us on next.
