Dollycas’s Thoughts

Poppy Fields is back and taking on New Orleans!

Our Hollywood It girl was set to relax at all the parties leading up to her college roommate Adele’s wedding before she headed off to her super-secret agent training, but while meeting at the Columns Hotel for drinks chaos erupts when a G-Wagon spins out of control. Behind it, a Range Rover stops and men with guns pile out and start shooting. Many are hit, some die, but Adele and Poppy are safe. Adele, a nurse, rushes to help. Pop

I absolutely loved Poppy’s latest adventure in New Orleans. The scenery, the plot, and the characters were described and developed so well that I felt like I was there.

Poppy went to New Orleans to be a bridesmaid in her college roommate’s wedding. Being Poppy, while having drinks, a shoot-out finds her. As she attempts to figure out what’s going on (against all advice), she is almost kidnapped, mugged, and bombed. Mark Stone is sent to keep her safe. It doesn’t take long for Jake to follow. The

I like this series! Poppy is smart, sophisticated and funny. In this third book she is in New Orleans to be her college roommate's bridesmaid. However, she barely arrives before the action starts. Drug cartels, politicians, and handsome men. The plot is complex and everything is very neatly brought together in the end. I highly recommend this book and series. ...more

This was a fast paced fun story that kept me turning pages.

The characters are a lot of fun and interact well. I'm particularly enjoying how Poppy's attire is not glossed over (too many stories have women casually running in heels) but rather add to the plot and often add some humor (I still giggle thinking about Poppy scaling an 8 foot fence in a too tight dress and heels).

Read this right after Book 2 in the series. A Good follow-up. This time Poppy is visiting New Orleans, as a bride-maid for her former college roommate. Her trip is immediately off to a hair-raising start when Poppy and her friend's al fresco luncheon together is interrupted by a running gun fight, after which Poppy is almost taken hostage and has to kill a man. of course this immediately puts her on shaky footing with the local police. Is all this related to a dangerous new drug that may be comi ...more

This is the third of the Poppy Field’s books. Poppy is in New Orleans for a friend’s over-the-top extravaganza wedding. Poppy’s itinerary was supposed to be filled with luncheons, dinner parties, clothes fittings etc., but (as we have come to expect), little goes to plan, and soon there are dead bodies and gangsters all over the place, and a rather nice police detective – Rene Langlois – who is not prepared for the carnage that follows Poppy everywhere: “I knew exactly what Detective Langlois sa ...more

I am a huge fan of the Marvel movies, especially the Captain America and Thor movies and characters. Why, do you ask am I saying this when talking about the Poppy Fields Adventure series by Julie Mulhern ? Because the main character, Poppy Fields, has a body guard/co-worker/boyfriend named Mark that looks like the character Thor and she calls him that throughout this series.....not to his face obviously but behind his back all the time and it is hilarious !! That is one of the many reasons that ...more

I enjoy these cozy mysteries with a daring heroine overcoming more obstacles than James Bond with a humorous aplomb and an enchanting dog. Well done!

Non stop excitement!

I couldn't have put this book down even if I'd wanted to! The characters, the pacing, the humor... so much fun. If I ever end up in trouble, I definitely want Poppy around to rescue me.

Everyone’s favorite spy is back and she’s better than ever! Poppy’s on her way to Spy Boot Camp but first must stop in New Orleans to be in her college roommate’s (Adele) wedding. No big deal, right? Wrong! It’s the blending of two old line Louisiana families so let the partying begin! For two entire weeks! Of jam-packed activities! How can Poppy get in any trouble? It’s just a wedding!

This is the third book in the Poppy Fields Adventures series by Julie Mulhern.

Poppy thought she was just going to New Orleans to be in her friend’s wedding. But she stumbles into a drug smuggling operation and they call in Mark Stone aka Thor to assist her in the investigation.

This story sees the beginning of an inkling of a relationship between Mark and Poppy. Jake is still hanging around in the shadows hoping to draw Poppy back toward him but I am not sure he will ever be successful a

This is the third book in this series and it continues to be a hoot to read. This time Poppy is in New Orleans to be a bridesmaid for her college roommate Adele’s wedding. Leave it to Poppy to be at The Columns Hotel veranda at the wrong time. Mayhem ensues and bullets start flying. In fact, drugs and a drug cartel are involved, which Poppy is very familiar with. Luckily her boss sends her ‘job’ partner, Mark Stone(Thor) to be her date and to watch out for her. Jake shows up too and she ends up ...more

Can’t get enough of Poppy!

I love a strong female character who can shoot to kill but is just a tad high maintenance! Poppy Field’s finds herself in yet another crime triangle with drug lords, crooked law enforcement and money hungry criminals. Mulhern keeps the reader guessing- how her imagination spins these tales is beyond me! In the midst of the crime and violence is the intense chemistry between Poppy and her new partner Mark- aka Thor. I’m anxious to see this relationship develop in the nex

Looking forward to London!

I have just finished the third book in the Poppy Fields Adventure. The only reason I didn't finish all three books at once was because I had to go to work. I got wrapped up in the adventure. I like that the characters are so "real". They get frustrated, they get in jams, they have to deal with their mothers. The banter between Poppy and her friends gives the book a great vibe. Poppy Fields is someone I would think would be fun to talk to. Even though a daughter of a fam

Phew, book 3. Maybe I read it too fast after book 2. Sometimes you need some distance between books because wow, the shootings.... they seem to come every five minutes with Poppy in the middle.

Poppy is in New Orleans for a very elaborate wedding and it seems again everyone is out for her. She dogs bullets, avoids kidnappings and gets squished a bit between Jake and Mark/Thor. Of course Poppy can hold her own, as always.

It was a fast read for me. There were a little too many names for me to keep

I found the first of this series on offer as a freebie. I liked it enough that I bought the second book immediately. That was even a bit better than the first, so I immediately ordered book 3. This is definitely the best of the three, perhaps because I am more familiar with the heroine, perhaps because I am crazy about "Thor", perhaps because I am pleased she is dumping the guy who was always trying to make her be less than she really is. This was an exciting, fun, hold on to your seat kind of r ...more

What Else Can Poppy Get Into ??

This series is absolutely delightful. It's funny, you love the characters and can't wait to see what Poppy gets into next. It is more than worth it to keep up with her antics and you can't wait to see what's next. These stories are just what you need. Thanks for these wonderful stories!

Loved it!

I love this series and can't wait for the next one! Poppy may be appear to be just another wealthy party girl, but she is also quite capable of kicking butt (or other body parts), and taking names, in between bridesmaid activities of course. Add some hot, and dangerous men, mysteries and that pesky cartel to the mix, and look out New Orleans!

Really heating up !!!

I fell in love with the Country Club Murders series immediately. I enjoyed “Fields’Guide to Abduction” but it took me getting into “Fields’ Guide to Assassins” to really be hooked. I couldn’t put “Fields’s Guide to VOODOO” down and my only disappointment is that I now have to wait for Poppy’s next adventure !!!

The storyline develops realistically and places the reader in ambiance of New Orleans. Engaging characters add to this saga. Will be following Poppy’s next adventure

I couldn't put it down till I finished! Then reread to savor every word. I love how most everyone thinks Poppy is just a well dressed party girl. Well, she is well dressed but not the piece of fluff she tries to portray! Can't wait till next one

The Poppy Fields books just keep getting better and better. It was such a joy to read one of Poppy’s adventures set in New Orleans, a city where I lived for a short time. Can’t wait to read what happens in London!

I love Poppy and Thor. She’s the girl everyone underestimates and she continuously amazes them all. Plus I get to read about luxury, sexy clothes and romantic cities as well. This series has all the things a cozy mystery needs.
