My Nails and My Book Review - Custom Baked Murder by Liz Mugavero


Title: Custom Baked Murder
Series: Pawsitively Organic Mystery #5
Author: Liz Mugavero

Goodreads Summary: Kristan “Stan” Connor gladly turned tail on her high-flying job and moved to a quaint New England town to sell organic pet treats. But with her nose for solving murders, there’s no such thing as a quiet life…

Summer is winding down in Frog Ledge, Connecticut, but Stan’s love life and career are both heating up nicely. In between planning her new pet patisserie and café, Stan is settling into living-in-bliss with sexy pub owner Jake McGee. Love’s on the menu for Stan’s mom, Patricia, too, who’s engaged to Frog Ledge’s mayor, Tony Falco.

Mayor Falco’s dogged ambition isn’t popular among locals, but it’s his executive coach, Eleanor Chang, who’s inspired a dangerous grudge. When Eleanor is found dead, there’s a whole pack of suspects to choose from. Stan has first-hand experience of Eleanor’s unsavory business tactics. But finding out who forced her to take a fatal plunge off the corporate ladder means unearthing some shady secrets…and a killer who’s too close for comfort.

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

I loved this book! It was a nice change to read about a family trying to learn how to get along. The mystery itself was really good, although I did figure it out pretty easily. Courtney and Kyle were absolutely hilarious. I was laughing during every scene they were in.

My Manicure: Wow. If you had told me a year ago that I would do a neutral manicure and love it, I would've thought you were crazy. But, although I still love my glitter/holo/multichrome manicures, I'm starting to love a nice, neutral look. I started out with a base of Zoya April, then topped it with Zoya Matte Velvet topcoat. Then I stamped it with Shany SH08 and Bundle Monster Arabica. How cute is that puppy face?
