My Nails and My Book Review - The Semi-Sweet Hereafter by Colette London

**NetGalley**



Title: The Semi-Sweet Hereafter
Series: Chocolate Whisperer Mystery #3
Author: Colette London

Goodreads Summary: As an authority on all things chocolate, Hayden Mundy Moore is traveling across the pond to lend her expertise to the owner of a posh London chocolaterie-p√Ętisserie. From coconut truffles to chocolate flapjacks, Hayden’s mouthwatering creations quickly impress her client. But her knowledge doesn’t end there. The detective constable is taken by surprise when she identifies an exotic murder weapon: a stone metlapil, used to grind cacao beans—and apparently to bludgeon someone to death—in Hayden’s own lodgings, no less…

The victim is a sexy celebrity chef who just happens to be the ex-husband of Hayden’s client. Now, amid the terraced town houses and local pubs, a killer is lurking—and the police have an assortment of suspects: a culinary rival, an ambitious agent, a recently-sacked assistant, and unfortunately, Hayden herself. The talented chocolate whisperer will have to find out what sort of nutter clobbered the famous cook—or her career may come to a bitter end…
 

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

There is just something about this series. Chocolate, murder, mystery, mouthwatering descriptions of chocolate desserts, it just all works together. Lots of surprises in this one, and that ending was pretty funny. Did I mention there is chocolate?

My Manicure: I went with the obvious choice here - chocolate. The boxes of chocolate are Philly Loves Lacquer 2 a.m. Coffee Run stamped with MoYou London Festive 01 and Maybelline Bold Gold. The chocolate covered berries are Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Carol and Philly Loves Lacquer 2 a.m. Coffee Run, and What's Up Nails vinyls (bought through Lucky 13 Lacquer) in the drip design. I'm pretty sure these vinyls were designed as blood drips, but it makes a really tasty looking chocolate drip.
