My Nails and My Book Review - The Quiche and the Dead by Kirsten Weiss


Title: The Quiche and the Dead
Series: Pie Town Mystery #1
Author: Kirsten Weiss

Goodreads Summary: Is Val's breakfast pie the quiche of death? Owning her own business seemed like pie in the sky to Valentine Harris when she moved to the coastal California town of San Nicholas, expecting to start a new life with her fiance. Five months--and a broken engagement--later, at least her dream of opening a pie shop has become a reality. But when one of her regulars keels over at the counter while eating a quiche, Val feels like she's living a nightmare. After the police determine the customer was poisoned, business at Pie Town drops faster than a fallen crust. Convinced they're both suspects, Val's flaky, seventy-something pie crust maker Charlene drags her boss into some amateur sleuthing. At first Val dismisses Charlene's half-baked hypotheses, but before long the ladies uncover some shady dealings hidden in fog-bound San Nicholas. Now Val must expose the truth--before a crummy killer tries to shut her pie hole.

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

This was a really fun first in series. The mystery was well written with a surprising ending. I loved the random side investigations going on throughout the book. They were fun with some amusing solutions.

My Manicure: Mmmmm, pie. I went for the easy inspiration today. I started with KBShimmer Leaf of Faith, which happens to give a perfect pie filling look. I ended up having to use a coat of Gelous along with my top coat to smooth it out, but that is normal for this type of polish. The pies were done with Bundle Monster H13 and Heart of Gold.
