Viola Roberts is down in the dumps after discovering her boyfriend, Lucas, is snowed in back east. Her best friend, Cheryl, agrees to substitute a girl’s weekend for the romantic Valentine’s Day he had planned. Massages and mani-pedis for the win!

That is, until the hotel guests start receiving venomous Valentines, and one of them ends up dead. In a remote resort on the wild Oregon coast, it’s up to Viola to get to the bottom of things before any more guests fall to the killer’s poison pen.

Title: The Venom in the Valentine
Author: Shéa MacLeod
Series: The Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries, Book 5
Genre: Cozy Mystery



Viola Roberts just cant catch a break can she!? What should be a romantic few days for Valentines sees Lucas get stuck in New York so she takes her BFF Cheryl along until he can get a flight out. Whilst at the hotel several guests – Viola included – start to receive poison pen letters! They start off harmless but then escalate to threats of death, and when one guest winds up dead from apparent suicide Viola takes things into her own hands to prove it was murder and find out who the poison pen writer really is.

With only a handful of guest and staff at the hotel surely it should be easy pickings but that is not the case when it becomes clear that the murder is hiding behind who ever wrote the notes. A double whammy for Viola to solve this time.

This one was as shorter read and the best one yet, I look forward to reading what Shea has in story in the next book!
