Fields' Guide to Abduction: A Poppy Fields Adventure Book 1 (The Poppy Fields Adventures) by Julie Mulhern

Fields' Guide to Abduction: A Poppy Fields Adventure Book 1 (The Poppy Fields Adventures)
Poppy Fields, Hollywood IT girl extraordinaire, agreed to a week at the newest, most luxurious resort in Cabo. After all, what's better than the beach when a girl is feeling blue? When Poppy is abducted, she'll need all her smarts, all her charm, and a killer Chihuahua, to save herself in this new series from the USA TODAY bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. 

Dead body #1 found in bed, with me. That was a shock.
Dead body #2 found in bed, not with me. That was a relief. 

Dead body #3 died telling me I’m a lousy actress. I already knew that.
Dead body #4 died trying to kill me.
Dead body #5 died kidnapping me.
Dead body #6 died guarding me.
Dead body #7 was a really bad man.
Dead body #8 was an even worse man. 

That's a lot of dead bodies for a girl looking for a week's relaxation in Cabo. And, I’m probably leaving a few out—math isn’t my thing. Unless I can escape the cartel, I might be the next dead body. 

“Poppy Fields is in a tough spot. People are dying at a statistically significant rate after interacting with her, starting with her ex-boyfriend. Now a drug cartel is chasing her, the police have taken her passport, and that beach vacation where she was supposed to chill out has turned into a nightmare. Action, humor, great characters, and an intriguing mystery, Mulhern has packed a lot into this excellent mystery. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy!” ~ Julie Moffett, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Lexi Carmichael Mysteries 

"The best book I've read this year!" ~ Gretchen Archer, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Capers.  (Summary via Goodreads)

Fields' Guide to Abduction by Julie Mulhern is a can't stop reading but don't want it to end kind of story !!  There is so much going on that captivates the reader and it is written so well that reading it is a breeze!  Which is a far cry from the story.....

When you begin reading Field's Guide to Abduction you are introduced to Poppy Fields who is a spoiled, rich, doesn't have to do anything daughter of a mega-star movie actress.  And when you first meet Poppy, she is hung over, naked in a hotel bathroom with an ex-boyfriend that she doesn't remember hooking up with.  But then everything changes when she leaves the bathroom and finds the ex-boyfriend is dead and she flies off to Mexico to attend a resort grand opening for a friend and more dead bodies pile up !!!

Poppy goes from a spoiled rich girl to a girl in the middle of a cartel drug war and she has to do everything in her power to stay alive and get back to the States.  The things that she ends up doing to survive will have every girl and woman wishing they were friends with Poppy and not for her money or her connections.

Mulhern has a great book in Fields' Guide to Abduction in so many ways....she captures your attention before you even finish reading Chapter 1, you will not want to put the book down even to go to the bathroom or fill your wineglass or coffee cup, she will have you on the edge of your seat during the entire middle of the story, you will have mixed emotions when you get to the end of the will be sad because you finished the book but the way that Mulhern ended the story gives the reader huge hope for the next book and the continuation of the amazing ride that she got you hooked on !!!

I know that when you finish reading this book, you will be right there along with me....a HUGE fan of Poppy Fields, Julie Mulhern and even Consuela.....and you will be watching for the next book in this series......
