I read Pocket Dial when it was BOTD. I was not that impressed with the book and rated it 2 out of 4 stars. I was hoping Toxic Side Effect would be an improvement. Well, Sandy can always cry, I mean try, again.

Yes, it’s astonishing how two different people can take away completely different opinions of a book.
I was surprised to see other a 4 out of 4 on the BOTD. Thanks for posting :tiphat:

Based on the review, Sandy Magner's "Toxic Side Effects" was an okay read with very few grammatical errors. However, I enjoy realistic and fast-paced crime novels that have more twists and turns. Therefore, I will probably pass on Magner's book. Thanks for the honest review!

I just downloaded this one. The first few pages are fast paced. I'd love to check back in once I'm further in.
Please do, it’s always interesting to know what other people think.
I will. First, I have to finish Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich. That one is a library book, and I'm about half through. But I should get to it in few days. :)
I guess I forgot to come back to say I agree with your 2 stars!
