My Nails and My Book Review - A Ghostly Reunion by Tonya Kappes

**Press Sample**

Title: A Ghostly Reunion
Series: Ghostly Southern Mysteries #5
Author: Tonya Kappes

Goodreads Summary: Emma Lee Raines sees dead people

Proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, Emma Lee can see, hear, and talk to ghosts of murdered folks. And when her high school nemesis is found dead, Jade Lee Peel is the same old mean girl—trying to come between Emma Lee and her hot boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, all over again.

There’s only one way for Emma Lee to be free of the trash-talking ghost—solve the murder so the former prom queen can cross over.

But the last thing Jade Lee wants is to leave the town where she had her glory days. And the more Emma Lee investigates on her own, the more complicated Miss Popularity turns out to be. Now Emma Lee will have to work extra closely with her hunky lawman to get to the twisty truth.

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

Oh my gosh. This is the first book I have read in this series and, wow, I'm not quite sure what to say. It was an absolutely amazing paranormal mystery. I loved the humor of her being haunted by her high school nemesis. A nitpicky bit that I didn't like was how the murder was solved. It just didn't quite feel right to me. But oh my when I read the very end my jaw was about on the ground. I did not see that ending coming at all.

My Manicure: Look! It's a nail fail! Really, it's my own fault for trying to use vinyls on a textured polish. They do not cooperate if the surface isn't totally smooth. So that weird shapeless blob on my ring finger and thumb is really a spooky graveyard. I started out with a base of Zoya Waverly. It makes me think of the deep blue the sky turns as the sun is setting. Then I put graveyard stencils on and sponged on Zoya Claudine. I was hoping that applying it like that would minimize any seeping, but I was definitely wrong on that one.

And now for a funny bonus picture. Have you ever ordered polish and received a murder scene instead? It is a bit amusing that the one that broke does a disturbingly good job of imitating blood.
