TLC Book Tours Book Review: Beautiful Poison

About A Beautiful Poison

  • Paperback: 350 pages
  • Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (August 1, 2017)
Just beyond the Gilded Age, in the mist-covered streets of New York, the deadly Spanish influenza ripples through the city. But with so many victims in her close circle, young socialite Allene questions if the flu is really to blame. All appear to have been poisoned—and every death was accompanied by a mysterious note.
Desperate for answers and dreading her own engagement to a wealthy gentleman, Allene returns to her passion for scientific discovery and recruits her long-lost friends, Jasper and Birdie, for help. The investigation brings her closer to Jasper, an apprentice medical examiner at Bellevue Hospital who still holds her heart, and offers the delicate Birdie a last-ditch chance to find a safe haven before her fragile health fails.
As more of their friends and family die, alliances shift, lives become entangled, and the three begin to suspect everyone—even each other. As they race to find the culprit, Allene, Birdie, and Jasper must once again trust each other, before one of them becomes the next victim.

Review: Sometimes there are books out there that you can't really give an adequate review because they are just so good.

Beautiful Poison is one of those books.

I have to admit one of the reasons I wanted to read it was because of the cover. Yeah I'm a sucker for a gorgeous cover and this book definitely has one of those.

I love historical mysteries, so that's part of why this book is a winner for me, plus it is set in one of my favorite time periods. (Those years right after WWI..aka known as the Downton Abbey period...only set in New York)

Its a fast paced novel that is absolutely impossible to put down.

Rating: 5 flowers

I'm a sucker for a good cover too, but I'm more excited to see that what's inside lived up to the gorgeous cover!

Thanks for being a part of the tour.
