My Nails and My Book Review - Death by Vanilla Latte by Alex Erickson


Title: Death by Vanilla Latte
Series: Bookstore Cafe Mystery #4
Author: Alex Erickson

Goodreads Summary: Ever since cafe owner Krissy Hancock settled into a relationship and mostly forgot about old flames, life has become surprisingly serene. Too bad her father, famed mystery writer James Hancock, had to pay an unexpected visit to Death by Coffee and brew up a batch of trouble... 
While caught off-guard by her dad's presence, Krissy never dreamed he'd become the biggest murder suspect in town. But that's exactly what happens when James's boorish agent a man he allegedly fired just hours earlier is found cold and lifeless, a still-warm vanilla latte resting by his hand... 
With Pine Hills divided over her father s innocence and a fanatical fan keen on locking the author away for safe keeping, Krissy must end the madness and identify the real criminal even if that means meeting an ex or two along the way. But as her social life becomes increasingly chaotic, Krissy may be caught in a case that's far too hot to handle...

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

Oh my gosh, Krissy's dad needs to visit more often! I loved how his character was written, and he added a lot to the story. The mystery was great, with lots of suspects and a personal connection to Krissy.

My Manicure: Coffee! Coffee, coffee, coffee... OK, I might be going a little overboard with that intro, but I couldn't help it. I mean, really, it's a coffee shop setting, so I had to go with coffee. And I really shouldn't be trying to blog when I'm tired - I get a little rambly. My base is Finger Paints Of Quartz You Can. I wanted something that would actually show the stamping, but wasn't just plain white. Then I stamped on coffee beans and coffee drinks with MoYou London Cookbook 03 and Bundle Monster Annatto Clay.
