They're at it again! Poisoned, the second installment of the Ava O'Neill Mystery Series, begins with our favorite real-estate-broker-turned-wannabe-detective, Ava O'Neill, in the middle of another murder case. Coworker and best friend, James Abbott, struggles with his new status of widower and tries his best to stay out of Ava's way. What started as a typical, quarterly work dinner with a few real estate buds quickly turned deadly when one of them was poisoned at the table. Already addicted to solving crimes, Ava wastes no time asserting herself into the police investigation. With an unwilling and miserable James in tow, Ava runs all over Dallas trying to find justice for her friend. While Ava's tenacity and drive push her close to the answer she seeks, an unexpected secret unravels everything she thinks she knows. Told from two points of view, Poisoned is a rather salacious mystery.
Ava O'Neill is a commercial real estate broker in Dallas, Texas. She is not a detective, no matter what she says. Has she been helpful to the police before? Yes. Do they appreciate her assistance? Mostly, no. But does she care? Definitely not. Poisoned starts out with Ava attending an industry dinner with three business associates, one of whom dies at the table. She immediately jumps at the opportunity to help solve the case, despite several warnings to stay out of it. With the help of her aunt, a former FBI forensic scientist, and an unwilling James Abbott, her coworker and close friend, Ava runs all over town searching for answers. Right when she thinks she has it solved, another death and a kidnapping distract her from the truth. Intertwined in the mystery is a subtle love story between Ava and her long-time friend, Jake. Poisoned is the second novel in the Ava O'Neill Mystery Series. Finding Sally (book 3), and The Organ Thief (book 4), are nearly complete.
