Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

Pool shark Jessie Hewitt usually knows where the balls will fall and how the game will end. But when a body lands on her couch, and the cute cop in her kitchen accuses her of murder, even Jessie isn’t sure what will happen next. She also isn’t sure how to catch a killer, but she’s about to learn.

Her skill set doesn’t exactly fit the task, however. Jessie put herself through college hustling at a pool table, and nowadays makes her living writing racy novels. This middle-aged romance author has excellent people-watching skills, a keen imagination, and street smarts going way back. Come to think of it, Jessie is the perfect sleuth.

Playing With Poison is a cozy mystery with a lot of humor, a little romance, and far too much champagne.

“Jessie is the new sleuth that you will want to follow again and again.”
Best Selling Author, Tonya Kappes

“Playing With Poison is a fun cozy mystery that will keep you laughing and on your toes all the way to the nail-biting end. Cindy Blackburn brings a fresh, new voice to the mystery genre. Go get your copy today!”
Dorothy St. James, author of The White House Gardener Mysteries

“Like Jessie Hewitt, her intriguing pool shark/romance author heroine, Playing with Poison author Cindy Blackburn knows how to start with a fast break and run the table, leaving readers applauding her skill. This cozy murder mystery, the first in Blackburn’s Cueball series, pairs fifty-two-year-old Jessie with the handsome and frustrated Captain Wilson Rye, who doesn’t know whether to kiss or handcuff his exasperating prime suspect. Plenty of quirky characters populate Playing with Poison, including a sleazoid ex-husband, a rabid TV reporter, ditzy neighbors, and—my favorite—a deranged literary agent, who’ll do anything to boost Jessie’s best-seller ranking. If you enjoy your mystery peppered with humor and romance, Cindy Blackburn has the balls racked and ready for you to play.”
Linda Lovely, author of the Marley Clark Mystery Series

4.0 von 5 Sternen Amüsanter Lesespaß 21. März 2014
Von Grete
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Auf der Suche nach günstigen Kindle Büchern bin ich über dieses Buch gestolpert und der erste "Blick ins Buch" hat mir gleich gut gefallen. Es ist amüsant geschrieben, liest sich leicht und zügig. Insgesamt ein angenehmer Krimi, der mir Lust auf mehr gemacht hat. Den zweiten Band habe ich schon gekauft.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very enjoyable debut! 2. Dezember 2012
Von Linda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I thoroughly enjoyed Playing with Poison. What a wonderful debut! Jessie Hewitt, protagonist, historical romance writer, and pool shark, is a delight. She is funny, smart and very loyal to her friends. Jessie is in the middle of working on her latest book when she answers a knock on her door. Her neighbor's fiancé, Stanley, stumbles in, collapses on her couch, and dies. So begins a really fun read. Naturally, Jessie immediately becomes a `person of interest' so she feels compelled to investigate. Eventually, Candy (friendly neighbor, lingerie seller, and Stanley's fiancée), is arrested for the murder. Jessie is convinced she is innocent and sets out to prove it.

Ms. Blackburn has written a very engaging story. She has filled her book with a great group of characters. Since most of these characters have a good reason for wanting Stanley dead, it isn't easy to figure out the identity of the culprit. I was hooked before I finished reading the first page--actually, it was the first sentence that pulled me in. Being of a certain age, or as Candy puts it, old, that sentence had me nodding my head and chuckling. Throughout the book, Jessie gives us a sneak peek into her work-in-progress, which enhanced the story and made me laugh. This is a well-written story with humor, believable dialogue, extremely likeable characters, and just the right amount of romance--everything I love in a story!

I've just downloaded the next two books in this series: Double Shot and Three Odd Balls. Looking forward to reading them. Can't wait to see what Ms. Blackburn has in store for Jessie and her friends. Happy reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen fun reading 20. September 2012
Von louise - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you like mysteries and you like fun, you will love Playing with Poison. Picture a young, hip cross between Miss Marple and Kay Scarpetta. Ms Blackburn's characters come to life and are real. After a few pages, Jessica Hewitt becomes your friend. You want to be part of her crowd and share laughs, drinks, maybe shoot some pool, and solve a murder while you are at it. There is even "G" rated breathless sex as well. Ms Hewitt's day job is writing fantasy romance novels. This is a light, cheery novel--despite the murder--Perfect to read by the fire or beach or anywhere. Impossible not to put you in a good mood. I look forward to getting to know her better and solving murders together"

3.0 von 5 Sternen Pop open a bottle of bubbly and read this book! 21. September 2012
Von Rosita Olsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a light, cozy mystery written in a breezy manner. The murder plot is nicely set up, and the suspects are all credibly drawn. Jessie Hewitt is an engaging amateur sleuth; and the relationship between Captain Wilson Rye is nicely developed and this reader wants them to end up together as a couple and looks forward to further development of their relationship in future Cue Ball Mysteries. I love Jessie's clever, sarcastic repartee with Wilson and anyone else she chooses to dish it out to!
The town of Clarence has a cozy feel to it as does The Stone Fountain, and sounds like a place I would like to retire. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the bar room pool games and Jessie's `real job' writer's block trials and tribulations of the Harlequin romance-like heroine, Alexis Wynsome and her knight in shining armor, Rolfe Vanderhorn. These passages are written with such exaggerated verbiage that I could almost hear Jessie laughing to herself that her loyal following is so hinged on reading her next book.
A fun `chick-lit' book in that Jessie is someone to whom many women `of a certain age' can relate - a menopausal divorcee, generally content with her life/livelihood, surrounded by good friends whose collective quirkiness constitute a family, yet someone who still believes in love, Prince Charming and the living happily ever after fairytale ending.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Author To Watch 27. Januar 2013
Von Lori Caswell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Jessie Hewitt is a pool shark that usually can run the table and knows where the balls will fall. She had no idea that a body would fall on her couch or that a cop would show up in her kitchen and accuse her of murder. How is she going to get out of this mess?

Best first line ever: "Going bra shopping at age fifty-two gives new meaning to the phrase fallen woman," I announced as I gazed at my reflection.

I knew I was going to like Jessie right away! She is smart and fun and I would love to hang out with her and shoot a little pool. She is also a romance novelist and her work as Adelé Nightingale is steamy but told to us readers in the most hilarious way. Her agent Louise is "fantastical"! These characters are a hoot!! and their dialogue is at times side splitting.

A good plot, a fun setting and engaging characters come together to make the a lighthearted cozy that will put a smile on your face. A very entertaining debut! I am looking forward to Double Shot and Three Odd Balls.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A light amusing mystery story 6. Januar 2014
Von Mags - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A novelist, who is past child bearing age and divorced, enters her apartment to find a man lying on her couch trying to gasp out a name before he dies. She becomes involved in solving this mystery and ropes in her friends who live in the same apartment block. This is a very light novel which is amusing but somewhat unrealistic as far as the roles played by the characters in it. There are some typographical errors.
