Book Review: A Geek Girl's Guide to Arsenic (Geek Girl Mysteries #2) (Out March 6th)
Title:A Geek Girl's Guide to Arsenic (Geek Girl Mysteries#2)
Author: Julie Anne Lindsey
Stars: 5out of 5
I am not sure there are enough words for me to tell you how much I loved this book. It had everything and more than I expected from Julie Anne Lindsey.
The author has kept the characters moving forward in relationships, trauma from the last book, and you can't help but full in love with Mia's family and their strange and funny connections.
I loved the fact that Mia is human and the author allowed her to still fear her shadow instead of making her super human and not allowing anything to effect her after the last book.
The mystery has twist and turns that will keep the reader guessing until the end of the book.
A Geek Girls Guide to Arsenic is full of humor, suspense, so many laughs, Jake and Mia and their awkward and humors relationship.
This book is could be read as a stand alone but you will miss out on the humor and mystery of the first book.
If you love Nancy Drew and are looking for an adult style with humor, romance, mystery and suspense this is you book. I can't wait to see what Julie Anne Lindsey has next for Mia and her cast of life like characters that pop off the pages and into your heart.
ARC From NetGalley.
It's been three months since Jake Archer rolled into town, accused Mia Connors of murder and stole her heart. She hasn't heard from him since. So when a man collapses at the fall Renaissance Faire, she's surprised to see the US marshal arrive on scene. And shocked when he points the finger at her—again. Mia would sooner be able to resurrect the poor fellow than poison him.
Jake Archer's career has been rising fast, but it's about to come to a crashing halt. The Ren-Faire victim was in protective custody—Jake's custody—and they were painfully close to nabbing a major crime boss. If Jake doesn't solve the murder soon, he'll be fetching donuts instead of protecting his nation. A difficult enough task without the alluring Mia Connors in the way.
Working with Jake to catch the killer might push Mia into crazy-cat-lady territory. But with a murderer on the loose—and Mia's reputation on the line—they'll have to work fast to find the killer before the killer finds them.
