This blog was started because I am addicted to reading, and I could sometimes talk for hours about a book if it was good. I was told that I sometimes talk to much about my books and that there were lots of people out there who love to hear about books.Good or bad and that I should start a blog so people could follow what I read. So here I am. Its all me the truth and nothing but. So I hope you enjoy and please remember to follow me so you can get all the up-to-date reads and reviews.
Well today I am reviewing Poison
PillBy: Glenn Kaplan. Glenn has
also answered some questions for us as well and will be posted following the
available at all your major book stores and also in print and e-book.
About the book Poison Pill- After years of struggle, Emma Conway is living the dream—a happy
second marriage and a great career. She is the driving force behind Acordinol,
a hugely successful painkiller that has pharmaceutical giant Percival &
Baxter riding high. But her dream becomes a nightmare when a Wall Street raider
threatens her company with a hostile takeover. Worse, the raider is no ordinary
cutthroat, but her ex-husband Josh Katz, father of their sixteen-year-old son.
P&B goes for a Poison Pill defense. But when a mysteriously tainted batch
of Acordinol starts killing people, including P&B’s CEO, Emma is put in
command just as the price of the firm’s once blue-chip stock goes into free
fall. As Emma struggles to win at her ex’s dangerous game, she discovers
secrets hidden within secrets. The big one is that Josh’s ploy is backed by a
Russian oligarch whose half billion-dollar loan rescued Josh after the subprime
collapse. The Russian lusts for the holy grail of pharmaceuticals, the first
Viagra for women. At the same time, a secret romance between Emma’s son and the
oligarch’s estranged daughter puts the young people into the crosshairs of
their parents’ mortal combat. Emma faces the fight of her life—to save her
family, her company, and everything she loves.
Story Line 5 stars – Each chapter was in a POV of a
different chapter and just at the end of each chapter it would be getting
interesting and switch to someone else for the next chapter. It was good kept
me guessing but one chapter I liked was chapter 12 where Peter was trying to
find out who the girl was that wanted someone with a chin! It’s funny because
every character is connected in some way or another and right now Tanya and
Peter are from what I gathered at this point about to hook up and their fathers
are in business together. I also like the plot where Peters mom and dad are
divorced and Peters dad is about to take down His ex-wife’s company with the
help from his Russian friend who just so happens to be Tanya father. All the
while Emma, Peter’s mom is trying to save her company and her son.
When Emma Conway finds out that her company is being taken
over by none other her Ex-Husband she gets very upset well that’s an
understatement but she plans to not let him win. Acordinol is her baby and she is
not going to let anyone ruin it for her at all she is going to the top with
this and so she is excited to find out that she is being called into the office
The story started to pick up for me when the CEO took the
Acordinol and in just a short few minutes was dead. She did not know what was
happing but she had to recall everything and it was going to start a panic.
Emma decided she was going to talk to all the press and then she texted her son
saying do not take any Acordinol I will explain later. Well Peter did not show
any concern for he was with Tanya and had sex for the first time.
The way this story has everyone connected and they don’t
even know it is the hook. This is not just a romance novel, It is mysterious
and thrilling. The email from Loralee was a plus! It was like who is she? Is
she real? Is she really dead? Did she take her life with the pills? Wait I
thought that Viktor had some guy go in and poison the pills. Man this book just
got even better. Glenn has a way with taking a situation and showing the reader
what could and would happen if it actually did happen. What got me is that Josh was in with Viktor
but when he found out Viktor wanted to take out his ex-wife Emma’s company he
wanted to back out but Viktor would not have that. Viktor had bailed Josh out a
long time ago and so Josh is indebted to him because of it.
of the book is fast to me it was fun and exciting. I could not put it down I recommend
this book to any one who is in to mystery and romance and suspence all tied in
to one book. Poison pill is available at all fine retailers and is here for
that last minuet gift you don’t know what to get.
