My Nails and My Book Review - Dead Cold Brew by Cleo Coyle


Title: Dead Cold Brew
Series: Coffeehouse Mystery #16
Author: Cleo Coyle

Goodreads Summary: From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling author of Dead to the Last Drop, comes a gripping new entry in the Coffeehouse Mystery series.
Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi sheds tears of joy when her NYPD detective boyfriend surprises her with an engagement ring. But her bridal bliss is put on hold when a chilling mystery brings a wave of deadly danger to those she holds dear...
After everything Clare and Mike have been through, they deserve a little bit of happily ever after. So when Mike decides to put a ring on Clare's finger, Clare's eccentric octogenarian employer is there to help. She donates the perfect coffee-colored diamonds to include in the setting and the name of a world-famous jeweler who happens to be an old family friend. But while the engagement is steeped in perfection, the celebration is not long lived.

First, a grim-faced attorney interrupts their party with a mysterious letter bequeathing a strange, hidden treasure to Clare's daughter. Next, the renowned jeweler who designed Clare's ring is found poisoned in his shop. Both events appear to be connected to a cold case murder involving a sunken ship, an Italian curse, a suspiciously charming jewel thief, and a shocking family secret. With deadly trouble brewing, Clare must track down clues in some of New York's most secret places before an old vendetta starts producing fresh corpses.

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

I'm having some mixed feelings about this one. Overall it was a really good book, but the police shooter subplot bothered me. I just feel like it was a little too real, and kind of bad timing with all the police shootings in the news. Other than that I really enjoyed the book. It had so many emotions and twists in it.

My Manicure: Coffee! I love coffee! So, obviously, a coffee shop book means coffee nails. I started with Philly Loves Lacquer 2 AM Coffee Run. Yup, even the base polish is coffee themed. Then I stamped with MoYou London Cookbook 3 and Bundle Monster Annato Clay. I think I accidentally went a little too matchy-matchy on the stamping, but I do still like the look.
