Series: Cat Latimer Mystery #1
Author: Lynn Cahoon
Goodreads Summary: A new series from the author of the Tourist Trap Mysteries!
Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…
The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees.
Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?
My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**
Ooooh my gosh. Wow. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going – boom, plot twist. There was a whole lot going on throughout the entire story, but I had absolutely no trouble following everything. It was a really strong start to a brand new series, and the ending left me wanting book two to be out right now. Seriously, I have to know what happens next.
My Manicure: Ooooh this turned out so much better than Monday's manicure. My thought process for this was actually a bit amusing. She's running a writing retreat, and writes books. Ok, that's easy, books. Now, what should I do for the base? Hmmm, it's a murder mystery, I know - blood red! It's the obvious choice, isn't it? So, the base color is Cupcake Polish Blood Hound, and the camera can't capture the holo properly. The pinky is the only one showing any of the effect, and even that doesn't do the polish justice. The stamping is done with Pure Ice Silver Star and MJ JR-2.
