My Nails and My Book Review - Marriage, Monsters-in-Law, and Murder by Sara Rosett


Title: Marriage, Monsters-in-Law, and Murder
Series: Mom Zone Mystery #9
Author: Sara Rosett

Goodreads Summary: Ellie Avery is a professional organizer, not a diplomat. But by agreeing to help organize a family wedding, she's basically signed on to prevent two mothers-in-law from killing each other. It comes as a complete surprise, then, when another member of the wedding party is the one who's actually murdered . . .

Ellie's sister-in-law, Summer, has planned a four-day destination wedding at a posh private resort on one of Georgia's beautiful barrier islands, but it won't be a vacation for Ellie. Summer has asked her to assist with the last-minute details, which includes keeping the peace between the groom's mother and stepmother. 

The ladies are a handful, but the real problems are the ones Ellie and Summer haven't anticipated--like mysterious pranks directed toward the bride. When the best man shows up with the groom's gorgeous if unstable ex-girlfriend, she seems like an obvious suspect for the practical jokes. 

But when a suspicious death occurs, Ellie realizes there's more going on than mean-spirited pranks. Is Summer the killer's real target? And what could possibly be driving someone to murder? Ellie vows to get to the truth so the blushing bride can walk down the aisle without fearing she'll never reach the altar . . .

My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

I really enjoyed this book. It is book nine in the series, but the first book that I have read in it, and I had absolutely no problem following the story. The pacing of the plot was great, and I adored reading about Livvie – she is such a mini-me. The ending was well written, and managed to end with me knowing who did it yet still being surprised by it.

My Manicure: This one was tough. I tried to go for wedding themed but not over-the-top wedding since I just did that two days ago. I ended up painting my nails with Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then I painted on notebook lines with Sinful Colors True Kolor, and stamping champagne flutes with Maybelline Bold Gold and Bundle Monster plate BM-H22. The notebook lines were chosen because Ellie is an organizer, so she probably goes through a lot of notebooks. The champagne flutes are because, well, wedding.
