Monica Morris is a psychiatric nurse with an almost obsession about poisons.  She even purchases an antique cabinet that comes with journals and  all kinds of information about various types of poison.  Upon investigating she discovers that these journals belonged to a person who had been highly suspected of poisoning members of her family.

When Monica finds one of her patients dead with empty bottles of pill bottles.  Police assume this was a suicide, but Monica has other thoughts.  Her first thought is that her patient has been poisoned.

More bodies are found that involve poisoning.  Monica thinks they are all connected and reports to DS Adams, the investigating detective.

When it becomes obvious that she’s unwittingly stepped into a trap, Monica’s career, her life is at risk. 

A good story premise, the suspense starts out rather slowly, then gathers momentum as more bodies are discovered.   I liked the character of Monica ... she's tenacious in wanting to get at the truth of what's happening.  However, DS Adams is not always happy to have an unofficial helper. There are several red herrings involved leading to a surprising ending.

Many thanks to the author / Bloodhound Books / Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction.  Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

Poison is on the mind of psychiatric nurse Monica Morris which may just prove to be deadly.
She makes an impulsive buy in purchasing an antique Ship's Doctor's Cabinet full of leather bound journals which truly fascinates her mind.
Things change when within just a few days the body of her patient Jan turns up dead.
DS Adams is on the case but who is behind these deaths, what is going on, or why are these mysterious deaths occurring and worse why are they all involving poison?
It's something of a farce, as Monica may just be a ripe target for the perfect set up to the perfect crimes.
Creepy, mysterious, mind blowing fun.
Thank you to AB Morgan, her publisher, NetGalley, and Aldiko for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

divine poison by ab Morgan. 
For a community psychiatric nurse, Monica Morris has an unhealthy interest in poison, and when, on impulse, she buys an antique Ship’s Doctor’s Cabinet with a set of leather-bound journals she becomes fascinated by the content.
A few days later, she discovers the body of her patient, Jan Collins, and although police assume suicide by overdose, Monica is not convinced.
When more unexplained deaths involving poisoning occur, Monica realises they are linked and so does DS Adams who is investigating. But how are they connected? And why?
When it becomes obvious that she’s unwittingly stepped into a trap set for someone else, Monica’s career, her own sanity and her life are placed at risk. But where can she turn to for help?
a fantastic read. Loved the story and the characters.

When I first started this book I really wasn’t sure where it was going but the more I read the further involved I got. I loved the main character Monica, there was so much to her character that you can’t help to warm to her and really get behind her. 
The book is a real who dunnit that keeps you guessing right to the end. I, like Monica, had my doubts about a few of the characters !! The book also covers mental health issues and really gets you thinking about how this relates to some people in real life, it’s a definite thought provoking book.
If you are looking for a real mystery crime book that really makes you think then this is the book for you.
