My Nails and My Book Review - Deader Homes and Gardens by Angie Fox


Title: Deader Homes and Gardens
Series: Southern Ghost Hunter #4
Author: Angie Fox

Goodreads Summary: Southern belle Verity Long is back in business—as a ghost hunter. Now all she has to do is visit the town's creepiest mansion and exorcise a family of vengeful spirits. Piece of cake. After all, ghosts love her and need her...that is until she meets the ghosts of Rock Fall mansion. They'll do anything to keep their murderous secrets hidden within the cliff-side fortress—even if that means getting rid of one meddling ghost hunter.

With the entire town skeptical and scrutinizing her every move, Verity struggles to uncover the century-old mystery behind the house. And when she stumbles upon a very fresh, very dead body, she realizes there’s more to it than she ever imagined. With the help of her sexy cop boyfriend, Ellis, and her ghostly gangster sidekick, Frankie, she braves the overgrown gardens, the desolate family cemetery, and the haunted mansion that have been locked away for generations. 

Can Verity unearth the truth before she's the next one buried on the deadly grounds?

My Review: **I voluntarily reviewed this ARC**

I absolutely adore this series! It is so quirky yet creepy. Although some of the creepiness might have been due to someone sitting in a creaky chair when Verity met a ghost. But it definitely upped the creepy factor from her previous ones. Even with all the eerie ghostly happenings, it manages to keep an awesome sense of humor.  

My Manicure: Well that was a unique experience. It took three times to even start the right manicure. To make that more embarrassing, I have a calendar with my posts planned for months in it, and I could've avoided those mistakes had I checked before I started... and restarted. So when I finally managed to start the correct manicure, I decided to go with a ghostly mist type of look, since there is a creepy black misty shadow in the book. But I had to adapt since ghostly black would turn gray. So I went with a base of Finger Paints Sketch-y to give a dark base that isn't as harsh as black. Then I dotted on Finger Paints Paper Mache and dabbled it with acetone to give it a misty look. Silly me forgot to put extra top coat on first, which resulted in this unique manicure.
