My Nails and My Book Review - Time Out by Suzanne M. Trauth


Title: Time Out
Series: Dodie O'Dell Mystery #2
Author: Suzanne M. Trauth

Goodreads Summary: KNISH OF DEATH

The amateur actors at the Etonville Little Theatre may be known for chewing the scenery, but restaurant manager Dodie O’Dell has something more appetizing for them to sink their teeth into. She’s been taking bows in her small New Jersey town for her theme menus, designed to complement the local productions. This fall, the community theatre is staging Arsenic and Old Lace, set in 1940s Brooklyn, so Dodie is serving up hot dogs, Italian ices, egg creams, and knishes at the weekend food festival.

All is going well until Antonio Digenza, the ex-Off-Off-Broadway director of the show, dies dramatically while noshing on a knish. As rumors of food poisoning quickly spread, Dodie scrambles to rescue the Windjammer restaurant’s reputation. But when clues point to foul play, she’s faced with a cast of suspects all auditioning for the part of DiGenza’s murderer. She’ll need to act fast to shine a spotlight on the killer—before it’s curtains for another victim . . .

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

Overall this was a decent book, but it didn't hold my attention the entire time. I had part of it figured out by a third of the way through, which made parts of the book a bit tedious. One of the main reasons I wanted to read this book is because I love the movie version of Arsenic and Old Lace, so I was a little disappointed when it didn't play much of a part in the plot.

My Manicure: I'm keeping it super simple today because my sinuses are going haywire. Basically, our weather is changing seasons three times in the next five days and I am feeling it. I decided that since there is an Arsenic and Old Lace theme, that would be my manicure theme. I went with KBShimmer Claws and Effect. I feel it has a nice elderberry wine look to it.
