New release alert: As Directed is out in the world!

This year’s spring and summer harvest has a bumper crop of Chicks’ books, and we couldn’t be more pleased.

We’re kicking off this bookish bonanza with the release of As Directed, the third book in Kathleen Valenti’s Maggie O’Malley Mystery Series.

Here’s the skinny on the book:

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.

And here’s what Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish, had to say:

“A chilling game of cat and mouse that moves with lightning speed and stunning twists. Lies, secrets and evil spin a deadly web in this gripping tale of malice and deceit.”

To which Kathleen replied, “YAY! That’s just what I was going for!”

You can pick up your very own copy at one of these fine retailers:
