Happy Belated #BookBday (11/28/17 Edition)

We’re late to wish these two a happy #BookBday, but it’s only to keep the party going!

POISON by Galt Niederhoffer
“A married mother of three young children enjoys a state of domestic bliss until she begins to suspect her husband is trying to poison her in Niederhoffer’s latest. The novel is ominous from Page 1, and with its slow-burn peril—both psychological and physical—building nicely, the suspense is sustained until the very end.” — Kirkus Reviews readmoreremove
