Series: Liv and Di in Dixie #2
Author: Vickie Fee
Goodreads Summary: Between a riverboat gambler-theme engagement party and a murder mystery dinner for charity, Dixie, Tennessee, party planner Liv McKay is far too frenzied to feel festive. Add to the mix her duties at the annual businesswomen’s retreat and the antics of a celebrity ghost-hunting diva, and Liv’s schedule is turning out to be the scariest thing about this Halloween—especially when the ladies stumble across a dead body in a cemetery…
Morgan Robison was a party girl with a penchant for married men and stirring up a cauldron of drama. Any number of scorned wives or frightened philanderers could be behind her death. As Liv and her best friend, Di, set out to dig up the truth, they’ll face the unexpected and find their efforts hampered by a killer with one seriously haunting vendetta…
My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**
Loved it! I really can't put my finger on what exactly I loved about it, but there is just something about it. There are a wide variety of characters, and plenty of quirkiness. There was a nice, cozy southerness to the setting that makes me want to move there. The mystery was a typical “which of the many people that hated the victim killed her” types, but the whodunit was a bit more interesting than most, and I adored the reveal.
My Manicure: So, the major party planning that Liv has to do is plan a huge fundraising Halloween party. Obviously, my mind went "YAY! Halloween nails!" I started out with a base of Sally Hansen Silk Onyx, which is one of their Satin Glam polishes from a few years ago. That awesome satin/matte finish my nails have? That is how this polish dries. This gave me a Halloweenish color base without it being as harsh as straight up black, and it isn't orange (I don't get along well with orange). The stamping is all from MoYou London Festive 15 and Pure Ice Silver Star. Just as a quick summary, from thumb to pinky the images are - cobwebs, skeleton, "Halloween", haunted house, and bats.
