Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field | Review

Chelsea Field returns to Jane Reads with another Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery!

The Blurb

Izzy and the gang are back in book four of this funny, romantic, mystery series. And the stakes have never been higher…

When Izzy agreed to become an undercover poison taster, she didn’t anticipate that it might involve driving around the streets of Los Angeles with a corpse in the trunk.

Because the police asked her to.

She also didn’t think finding a body together could be considered a bonding experience until she met Connor’s family.

But fate delights in marking its territory all over Izzy’s expectations. And this time she’ll be caught between the powers of Homeland Security, an evil human trafficking ring, and the Taste Society all working toward different ends…

The Review

I just read an amazing book, y'all — Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field, the fourth book in the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series. Let me tell you a little about it.

I love reading about Izzy! Author Chelsea Field has created such a wonderful character — engaging, relatable, likable, and easy to root for. Izzy has a great supporting cast, including her neighbor Etta, her housemate Oliver, her "main squeeze" Connor, Connor's mother Mae, and Connor's sister Harper. 

I enjoy reading about the evolving relationship between Izzy and Connor. In this latest episode of Izzy's exploits, they are six weeks into their relationship, which began in Poison is the New Black. Sophisticated, serious, strong-silent-type Connor is such a contrast to down-to-(Australian)-earth, hilarious, talkative Izzy, which really adds to the fun of Poison and Prejudice

The fast-moving, clever plot immediately drew me in, and I finished it in one day. I was impressed by the complexity of the plot, created by weaving together several sub-plots, each with a plausible mystery situation. The action builds to a thrilling climax.

The marvelous ending of Poison and Prejudice made me smile. I loved it! I can't wait for next book! I will absolutely continue with the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series.

I highly recommend Poison and Prejudice to all fans of humorous mysteries, especially fans of Chelsea Field's other mysteries, and to those who love a madcap mystery. 

I absolutely loved Poison and Prejudice, and hereby bestow upon it our top ranking of Five Kitties!
