Come, Bitter Poison
By Monica Knightley
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Sexy film star. Long-held secrets. Murder by poison.
When international stage and film star Miles Elliot comes to Stratford Upon Avondale to play MacBeth, Maggie O’Flynn is thrilled. He’s been her actor crush for years. But when Miles ends up at the center of a murder investigation Maggie finds herself slipping back into the role of amateur sleuth. Before long many of her friends become suspects in not just one murder, but two. Maggie must discover who’s poisoning people associated with the Shakespeare Festival before one of her friends gets slapped with a murder charge. And she must do so while dodging paparazzi that are stalking her due to a supposed love affair she’s having with Miles Elliot.
With a bit of Shakespeare, copious amounts of tea, and a faux-English setting to rival anything the real England has to offer, COME, BITTER POISON is the second book in THE STRATFORD UPON AVONDALE mystery series. Though part of a series, COME, BITTER POISON can be read and enjoyed as a standalone. Lovers of cozy mysteries will find a cozy home in Stratford Upon Avondale.
I began creating compelling characters and stories at the age of three, when I had a plethora of imaginary friends, all with complete backstories. Today any characters that come knocking on the door of my imagination find themselves in one of my mysteries, young adult novels, or paranormal romances.
When not fueling my reading addiction or writing my next book, I love to travel with my husband, with England being my favorite frequently visited destination, and perhaps France coming in a close second. I can’t live without perfectly steeped tea, a good bold red wine, and dark chocolate. I love my time with family and friends and can never get enough of either.
I live in Portland, Oregon where the frequent rainy weather is perfect for curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
