At 24, Ivy Morris has never lived outside her father’s home and in fact sleeps in the same room her mom decorated over a decade ago. Until she gets a letter with the words “your inheritance” offering her a home and a costume shop of her own 3000 miles away.
But when she arrives to assume her new life she is bombarded by a slew of people looking for the perfect dominatrix or disturbingly tight wrestler costume for the upcoming Harvest Ball. Between overpowering biddies and stolen lingerie from the worst-kept secret side business, things get even more complicated when a woman is murdered at the ball–a woman wearing the same costume as Ivy.
With the help of her new friends and a cute guy trying to rev up his journalism career with this mystery, and revving up her heart in the process, she must solve the murder before someone succeeds in their quest to POISON IVY.

THE WRONG DRAWERS!
Ivy Morris is back again, and this time she’s determined to stay out of trouble. She’s comfortably ensconced in her very own costume shop and happy as a clam. Happy as a clam can be, anyway, when her father has essentially moved in with her for an indefinite amount of time, and her love life is frustratingly on hold. She’s sure she is quickly going insane.
So when her best friend, Bella, asks for help with an in-home demonstration party, Ivy jumps at the chance to get out of the house and away from her dad. She has no real idea what they’ll be demonstrating until she gets a load of the cookies she has to decorate. But that becomes the least of her troubles when she walks straight into another murder scene. One where she’s the prime suspect.
What else could go wrong? When you’re Ivy Morris, the only right answer is everything. With the help of hunky Ben Fallon, this girl will try to figure out why she’s being framed and what it has to do with her getting THE WRONG DRAWERS.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING DEAD
Ivy Morris never thought she’d be walking her new stepmother down the aisle to her father. Not a flawless event, because, really, when is anything in Ivy’s life flawless? At least she avoids tripping. It’s the reception that has the flaw. The wedding singer nearly chokes to death on a glass of water, and then Ivy’s sister finds something unexpected in the parking lot.
And that’s not all. Something odd is going on in the sleepy little town of Martha’s Point — for some reason, no female under the age of fifty can keep her hands off Ivy’s boyfriend. Ivy’s little shop enjoys a tremendous increase in business as those women keep running in to buy more new sexy lingerie, but her heart is anything but happy.
What will it take to solve these mysteries? Is Ivy up to it? Well, she’s about to find out.
FRAME AND FORTUNE
Ivy Morris’ best friend, Bella Landry, is in trouble, thanks to a surprise she finds in the walk-in freezer at her hair salon. Calling amateur sleuth Ivy is a no-brainer for Bella. She can’t trust her policeman boyfriend—he’s the one who cuffed her and booked her, and not in a sexy kind of way.
Ivy might be in over her head this time, with Bella’s ex showing up wanting to help and only making things worse. Who is he secretly promising to pay? And does it have anything to do with the person stealing picture frames but leaving the pictures around town?
Ivy’s got a convoluted mess on her hands—secret lives, secret agendas, and a lot of unexplained money. To top it off, the decidedly delicious Ben Fallon has turned gourmet cook and chief bottle washer in her house…while stealthily taking over a few of Ivy’s drawers.
What’s a girl to do?
With the Tasty Tomato Tournament just days away, the small town of Martha’s Point is all abuzz. This is the first year without a sure winner, and the competition is fierce to gain the judges’ approval, even before the tournament starts.
But when Ivy finds one of those judges dead in a shed across the street, things go from bad to worse. All she wanted was seven glorious, kid-free days of messing around with her husband. Instead, she’s going to be tracking down a killer, staying out of the way of a pickle-obsessed farmer, and dodging the new cop who seems out for her blood.
