My Nails and My Book Review - Death of a Lobster Lover by Lee Hollis


Title: Death of a Lobster Lover
Series: Hayley Powell Food and Cocktail Mystery #9
Author: Lee Hollis

Goodreads Summary: Food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell is off on a girls' getaway with her two best friends. But soon they'll have to get away from a killer...

The quaint fishing village of Salmon Cove, Maine, seems like the ideal location for a girls' weekend with Hayley's gal pals, Liddy and Mona. Liddy's on the rebound from a breakup, but when she meets a handsome tourist, it looks like a little romance might liven things up.

Unfortunately, Liddy's new sweetheart is found dead on the beach the next morning at the town's Lobster Bake, next to an overturned cooking pot. The liberated lobsters may be scrambling back to the sea, but Hayley's not about to let a murderer escape so easily. To crack the case, she'll need to blow the lid off some serious undercover activity--or risk becoming ensnared in a killer's trap...

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

I'm still in shock at that ending. As the mystery unfolds, it really is one shock after another. My only complaint is that you really need some tissues handy for the final column. The recipes sound delicious, and I'm working on figuring out if I can turn those cocktails into mocktails.

My Manicure: Since there is a definite ocean setting to the book, I went for an ocean themed manicure. I started with a base of Finger Paints Inkblot Blue, then topped it with Laugh My Art Off. Then I stamped using Bundle Monster 502 and Bam! White.
