Dial P for Poison Book Review

Dial P for Poison Book Review

Dial P For Poison by Zara Keane was a pick up along with the Wolves and Daggers as it was available for free. Dial P for Poison is centred around Maggie Doyle who’s come back to Ireland from America to relax and finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery.

Maggie is a Police Woman from the US that has come over to stay with her Aunty in Ireland after a break up with her divorce and having lost her job. She comes to stay with her Aunt to regroup and relax. As she lands in Ireland, she learns about the struggle that her Aunt has in the small village she lives in off mainland Ireland. While Maggie is running a club in her Aunt’s Café someone dies and it becomes a murder mystery, with Maggie being the only one pushing that it was murder and not natural causes.

Dial P for Poison was for me really interesting and kept my intention because how Maggie interacts with other characters with in the book. She was used to dealing with murders in the US but it was never anyone that she had a personal connection to however every suspect Maggie knew for one reason or another. However she’d been away from the village for such a long time did she really know these people now how much had they changed? This was something she was constantly dealing with trying to stay objective while not upsetting people she cared about.

Overall I gave Dial P For Poison 4/5 on Goodreads because although I haven’t been in the mood to read lately I was still able to read this book in 3 days and was constantly thinking about the murder and the mystery when I wasn’t reading the book, wondering where it was going to go next and who was going to be the next main suspect. It definitely was a good start to another series I plan on keeping up with.
