Summary

When Poppy Parker turns 21, the popular TV witch detective discovers she has supernatural powers off the set as well as on. When the show is canceled, she returns home to figure out how to harness the magic brewing inside her.

Freaked out by these recent paranormal gifts, Poppy just wants to fit in, so when she's asked to serve as a judge for the annual Bloomin' Belles youth beauty competition she readily agrees.

But when the pageant's snooty director drops dead and Poppy's friend is arrested, the former TV sleuth sets out to uncover the real killer, only to find...the business of beauty can be deadly.

Pretty enjoyable book

I really enjoyed this book and hope it is just the first of many more books to come. The characters are interesting and the friendship between them seems strong. Thee introduction of magic is nicely worked into the plot and gives the book a little spark of adventure without taking over the mystery. The look into the child beauty pageant is fun and entertaining and sure to give you a few chuckles over some of the behaviour.
When actress Poppy's tv show is cancelled she returns home, for a quieter life working in her best friends flower shop, to give herself time to find herself. Things take turn when she is asked to stand in as a judge for the annual beauty show., where back stabbing and cheating is normal behaviour and that is from the parent's. But back stabbing isn't what kills the director of pageant. With more enemies than friends around it is not surprising that someone takes the opportunity to poison her as she just makes enemies where ever she goes. When one of Poppy's friend is arrested for the murder Poppy can't help but get involved and then it gets personal and one of the guests at her Aunts bed and breakfast is also murdered leading Poppy to believe a lot more is going on than just a fight over a crown.
This is the first time I have listened to this narrator but I thought she was really good and I will be looking out for more books read by her, as she really brought the characters to life with there own unique voices.
Over all a great book and a series I will be keeping an eye out for.

Entertaining!

This is the story of a woman who discovers she has inherited powers, even though she didn't know it. It's a very light, kind of funny, good read. Very enjoyable. I recommend it.

Great Read

Any additional comments?

Poison My Pretty by Amity Allen was a good read. Poppy turns 21 when her popular television show gets cancelled. She returns home and finds her life changes completely. I enjoyed reading this book.

I read, loved and reviewed this book, YOUR TURN

poppy is so lovable, but it didn't really go into her pqoers, or how she would use them. beauty pageant for kids like toddlers and tiaras, a murder, and a cat... makes for a great little cozy!!!

Loved it!

This was a very well written, beautifully performed murder mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the plot moved right along. There wasn't a cliffhanger but there is definitely a setup for the next book in the series. I can't wait to continue on with the next book!

TV Detective solves real life murder!

Poppy was home after a stint in Hollywood, but the position as Pagent Judge didn't prepare her for the need to address the issue of an unsolved murder mystery.

Interesting, with all loose ends tied up in the end.

Great Cozy Mystery

If you are of a fan of cozy mysteries and the pageant scene, you will love this book. It's like the best of reality tv mixed in with a little magic and a good solid mystery story. I'll definitely be checking out more from this author. I also liked the flow and sound of the narrator's voice which is so important when listening to an audiobook.

cute

This was a really cute book. Loved the characters. Poppy comes back to Alabama to live after her TV show is canceled. She played a witch detective on TV. She finds out she is actually a real witch. While she is judging a kids beauty pageant, the host dies. Poppy gets involved with trying to solve the murder.

Loved the book and the characters. I definitely would like to do more in this series. I loved it because it was in Alabama. I am from Alabama. I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

the narrator, Rachel Flginiti, did a fantastic job.

Good story

This did not fit my ideal of a cozy mystery but I did enjoy the story enough that I stayed tuned in to it. The author and narrator did a great job. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun book

I found this book dragged on a little bit but the characters and story line were good. A woman moved back in with her grandma and found out she was a witch. The book has a familiar, a little magic, and an interesting murder mystery. I listened through Audible. The narrator was prefect for this story. Worth reading.
