Product Description

From a #1 bestselling author:

A fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you've never seen before...

*** Includes bonus short story: Taste of Christmas ***

When Mr. Black becomes the top suspect in a murder investigation, Isobel Avery is roped into helping Etta, her Glock, and her greyhound clear his name.

Except her boyfriend Connor is warning her to stay out of it, the new client she’s protecting from poison threats requires her full attention, and oh yeah, Izzy thinks Mr. Black might be guilty… He did once try to beat her to a pulp after all.

To make matters worse, Etta and Izzy aren’t the only ones digging in to this case, and the other parties are a whole lot more dangerous. And if Mr. Black didn’t do it, then the real killer is still out there and might not appreciate their interference.

As Izzy struggles to make sure the right bad guy goes to prison, find her footing in her new romantic relationship, and integrate herself into her client’s alien world of high-society ladies—the same world the victim is from—she’d better watch out for poisons, vengeance, and firebombs.

My husband enjoyed listening to my frequent laughs out loud. The book had me in - it took a lot of self control to stop reading when I needed to.

Seriously, this series just keeps getting better and better. Izzy is great, I just love her. The small group of central characters has expanded a little, and definitely for the better, I love that we're really getting to know everyone a bit more, and I am DESPERATE to read the next installment!!!!!

All 3 books in this series are fun to read. Each character is unique. These books have it all - romance (sort of) humour and mystery. What I find most interesting (no spoiler) is the "shades" line of work, do they really exist ? Please hurry and release more books in this series !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this series and the third book is as as great at the first two. 20 January 2017
By Jeanie Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this series. Izzy is all that I love in a main character. She tries to do what it right, life is a little tough for her but she keeps kicking and caring, and she is a more than a little lucky! She is the kind of person who not only draws trouble, she trips over it, but good things happen to balance the bad. As I often mention with outstanding books, I love dynamic characters. When characters are allowed to develop they seem more real and my attachment as a reader grows. In this case Izzy's life changes more than she does but her new love, Connor, has taken tiny steps to become the person she needs. I also love to see the good guys succeed and this team just won't quit until they win.

While there is a great deal of humor Izzy's job as a taster is serious; yes, her job is to make sure her clients are not poisoned. In Poison is the New Black, the man who terrorized her for the money her ex-husband owed when we first met her has been accused of murder and her audacious septuagenarian neighbor refuses to believe that Mr. Black is a killer. Izzy's focus on the current case, protecting a club president so she gets to pose for a nude calendar, isn’t time consuming so she can’t use it as an excuse not to help the man who scares her even now that she is safe from his threats. Etta pushes Izzy to question his guilt as they meet his family and our heroine is forced to reevaluate how she feels about him.

Thanks to Chelsea Fields for giving Issy and Connor's Christmas story before Poison! It was great!
I am not happy with my review of this awesome book but here it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and funny – I recommend you check it out 18 January 2017
By dachshund fan - Published on Amazon.com

This is the third book in the wonderful Eat, Pray, Die series by Chelsea Field. This book is just as funny and suspenseful as the previous 2.5 in the set. ‘Poison is the New Black’ has more romance than the others, although it’s not explicit.

Is this worth my time and money? Yes, it’s an enjoyable book and well worth the cost. You can read it as a stand alone, even though it’s in a series. I am fond of the main character, Izzy. She’s smart, kind, and someone you’d like to invite over for coffee and comfort food.

If you've not read any books in this series, here's the scoop. The main character, Isobel (Izzy), works for the Taste Society. It's a secretive company, employing 'shades' to secretively taste their wealthy clients food for poison. Her boyfriend, Connor, is a coworker who investigates criminal wrongdoing. Connor's more 'by the book' while Izzy follows her gut. Together they make an entertaining couple.

This mystery begins the day after Christmas. Izzy’s current job is protecting her socialite client, Vanessa. Izzy’s nemesis, Emily, is working at the same social club. Emily’s set on undermining her rival. Vanessa is competing to pose in a charity calendar. Her peers actively sabotage each other to win a calendar spot. That leaves Izzy not only watching Vanessa’s food, but also watching her back because of Emily’s schemes.

The main plot starts as Isobel's neighbor, Etta, convinces her to help prove her friend innocent of murder. Mr Black is the prime suspect in the killing of a wealthy CEO. Etta’s retired and has unusual skills that aid their investigation.

Can Etta and Isobel keep Mr Black from going to jail? This journey is more dangerous than Izzy’s previous adventures. It’s difficult to discover the killer, and it keeps you guessing until the end.

So if you are looking for a good mystery with some fun characters and a suspenseful plot – you’ve found the right book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like the route the story is taking Izzy and enjoy ... 18 January 2017
By Bookgyrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story continues immediately after the Christmas story 'Taste of Christmas' and I do think you need to have read at least the first book of the series to understand the storyline. This is nr 3.

Izzy takes a new job as a Shade, but it is a simple and fast one so she gets lured into a new investigation with elderly neighbor Etta. Etta wants to help Mr Black prove he is innocent of the murder he is accused of and even though Izzy has her doubts (he did threaten her in book 1) and is sure new boyfriend Connor won't approve, she is soon up to her eyeballs in playing investigator.

I like the route the story is taking Izzy and enjoy the writing style. Etta is my favorite secondary character and I enjoyed meeting Connor's family (again). The pacing of the story is just right without any boring moment. I do hope there will be many more books in the series and we get to see a more relaxed and talkative Connor :-) as he is starting to thaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully complex! 14 February 2017

I loved this book. She is back full force in her taste-testing role that I missed so much in the second book. I couldn't put the book down. It was really remarkable how she tied 2 plots together and made it work. Can't wait until another one comes out.... don't wait too long, Chelsea.

The characters in this series are like family. You just have to keep turning the pages to see what trouble they'll get into next. Izzy can't help but be in the middle of things. Connor is that strong silent type who knows just how to handle Izzy. I LOVE this series, now on to the next book.
