My Nails and My Book Review - Bearly Departed by Meg Macy


Title: Bearly Departed
Series: Teddy Bear Mystery #1
Author: Meg Macy

Goodreads Summary: The Silver Bear Shop and Factory might be the cutest place around, but there's nothing warm and fuzzy about murder . . . 
As manager of the family teddy bear shop and factory, thirty-one-year-old Sasha Silverman leads a charmed life. Well, except for the part about being a single divorcee with a ticking biological clock in small-town Silver Hollow. And that's just kid's stuff compared to Will Taylor, the sales rep who's set on making drastic changes to the business her parents built from scratch--with or without Sasha's approval . . . 
But before Will digs his claws in, someone pulls the stuffing out of his plan . . . and leaves his dead body inside the factory. Reeling from shock, Sasha's hit with more bad news--police suspect her hot-tempered Uncle Ross may have murdered him. Sasha knows her uncle would never do such a thing, and she's launching her own little investigation to expose the truth. As she tracks Will's biggest rivals and enemies for clues, Sasha can't get too comfy--or she'll become the next plaything for a killer . . . 

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

This was an amazing first in series. I really liked the characters, and the teddy bears were just adorable. The ending surprised me, and it was also a little more bittersweet than I was expecting. I definitely can't wait for the next book.

My Manicure: This was a hard manicure to come up with. I ended up choosing a picnic blanket theme since I loved the teddy bear picnic scene. The colors are simply because of Memorial day (it's a multitasking manicure). I started with Finger Paints Magritte's Masterpiece (warning - super skunky smelling) and Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Carol. Then I stamped the pattern with Pueen 54 and Bundle Monster Bam! White.
