As Directed by Kathleen Valenti


In the shadow of a past fraught with danger and tainted by loss, former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is rebuilding her life, trading test tubes for pill bottles as she embarks on a new career at the corner drugstore.

But as she spreads her wings, things begin to go terribly wrong. A customer falls ill in the store. Followed by another. And then more.

The specter of poisoning arises, conjuring old grudges, past sins, buried secrets and new suspicions from which no one is immune.

As Maggie and her best friend Constantine begin to investigate, they discover that some of the deadliest doses come from the most unexpected places.

As Directed is the 3rd book in the Maggie O’Malley mystery series. I have done cover reveals for the first two books in this series, but As Directed is the first one I read, and now I am wondering what I was waiting for! This book does work as a standalone – you don’t have to have read books one and two to enjoy it, but you may want to go back and read them after you finish this one.

I really enjoyed this book – the mystery was very well thought out, Maggie and Constantine are people I would like to hang out with in real life, and the action is almost non-stop.  Throw in some humor, a little romance and a faithful canine companion and this series has it all.
