Author Kelley Kaye weaves a witty mystery adventure, with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints a humorous and entertaining story in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a fast-paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last.

Now, if that’s not enough to get your curiosity juices flowing, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my second time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed yet again. The first book in the series, Death by Diploma (Chalkboard Outlines Book 1) is also well worth checking out.

Poison by Punctuation had every element a good story should have. An intriguing plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

Very appealing and alluring, this work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of whodunit moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly mysterious and intriguing journey.

It’s one of those books that come along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Kelley Kaye in the future. I would recommend this book and would love to see it adapted for Television. In my humble opinion, I honestly think this would make a great series. Five stars from me.
