The Poison in All of Us (Emmie McAllister Mysteries Book 1)The Poison in All of Us by Connie B. Dowell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed The Poison in All of Us because it is a well-written mystery with strong female characters. Although set in the South in the early 1900s, its lead characters, Emmie and her “frenemy” Dessa, are intelligent, independent young ladies dealing with issues teenagers still face today. Although not kindred spirits, the girls find a way to work together to help solve a murder. There is quite a bit of factual information about the time period, including the suffragist movement in America, built into the storyline which lends itself to better understanding of what it felt like to live within the limitations placed upon young women at that time.

I look forward to reading about future escapades of Emmie and Dessa in the books to follow in this series.

I received a free copy of The Poison in All of Us from StoryCartel (www.storycartel.com) in exchange for posting my unbiased review of the book online.
