My Nails and My Book Review - The Witches' Tree by M.C. Beaton


Title: The Witches' Tree
Series: Agatha Raisin #28
Author: M.C. Beaton

Goodreads Summary: The Witches’ Tree continues the tradition in M. C. Beaton's beloved Agatha Raisin mystery series―now a hit T.V. show.

Cotswolds inhabitants are used to inclement weather, but the night sky is especially foggy as Rory and Molly Devere, the new vicar and his wife, drive slowly home from a dinner party in their village of Sumpton Harcourt. They strain to see the road ahead―and then suddenly brake, screeching to a halt. Right in front of them, aglow in the headlights, a body hangs from a gnarled tree at the edge of town. Margaret Darby, an elderly spinster, has been murdered―and the villagers are bewildered as to who would commit such a crime.

Agatha Raisin rises to the occasion (a little glad for the excitement, to tell the truth, after a long run of lost cats and divorces on the books). But Sumpton Harcourt is a small and private village, she finds―a place that poses more questions than answers. And when two more murders follow the first, Agatha begins to fear for her reputation―and even her life. That the village has its own coven of witches certainly doesn't make her feel any better...

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

I was disappointed in this book. The mystery was good, but the characters felt different to me. Because of this, I wasn't drawn into to story like I usually am, and I was left feeling a bit unsatisfied.

My Manicure: The spooky tree gave me a perfect excuse to use one of my favorite polishes. I started out with KBShimmer Carpe Denim, the perfect starry night background color. This is one of those polishes that I could stare at all day. I stamped on some spooky trees with Bundle Monster 407 and Straight Up Black.
