My Nails and My Book Review - Something Foul at Sweetwater by Sandra Bretting


Title: Something Foul at Sweetwater
Series: Missy DuBois #2
Author: Sandra Bretting

Goodreads Summary: Louisiana hat maker Miss DuBois is making a name for herself veiling Southern brides-to-be with her sophisticated designs. She’s also gaining a reputation for unveiling murderers . . .

Missy is shocked when she sees the asking price for the Sweetwater mansion . . . in a good way. With business thriving at Crowning Glory, it would be nice to set up shop surrounded by alabaster columns and gleaming mahogany. The Southern connections only deepen when it turns out the real estate agent is Mellette Babineaux, a college classmate and sorority sister. But when Missy drags her best friend Bo along to the mansion for a second look, they barely make it past the live oaks before they discover Mellette’s dead body in a shed. Now, for the sake of her college friend, Missy finds herself investigating everyone from a superstitious Cajun caretaker to a Rolls Royce-driving billionaire—and finding that lots of closet space can mean lots of skeletons, too . . .

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

This was a good book, but the mystery felt a little too easy. There was a distinct lack of suspects, which made it fairly simple to pick out the murderer. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book. The author has a way with words that just paints a gorgeous picture. I also had fun with all the little southern sayings sprinkled through the book.

My Manicure: So for this one, I went with a bridal veil/lace type look. I started out with a base of Zoya Sue to give it a nice neutral background. Then I stamped with Bundle Monster + Nailstamp4fun and Bam! White. I really don't know why my middle finger is being a brat, I'm guessing maybe the patch is messing with things.
