The Perfect Poison - Amanda Quick I came in the middle of this series by starting at book 5 rather than book 1. Although I was a bit lost with the plot line I didn’t feel completely lost with the story and it didn’t hamper my enjoyment of it. This is typical Amanda Quick novel where the broken hero sets out to save the heroine. There is a bit more mystery and twists in this one than other Quick novels I’ve read, which made it more enjoyable.
