My Nails and My Book Review - Thread the Halls by Lea Wait


Title: Thread the Halls
Series: Mainely Needlepoint #6
Author: Lea Wait

Goodreads Summary: Christmas in Haven Harbor, Maine, means family, trouble, and murder . . .

This Yuletide season, there's no time for Angie Curtis and Patrick West to linger under the mistletoe. Patrick's being needled by his mother--movie star Skye West--to set the stage for a perfect white Christmas as she brings her costar, screenwriters, and director home for the holidays. With his mother's long list of wishes, Patrick's becoming unraveled. To help, the Mainely Needlepointers offer to decorate Skye's Victorian mansion and create needlepoint pillows as gifts for the guests.

But not long after the celebrity celebrants invade Haven Harbor, an unscripted tragedy occurs. Then some questionable Christmas cookies make Patrick sick. Before Santa arrives at the town pier on a lobster boat, Angie and the Needlepointers need to trim down the naughty list, catch a cold-hearted killer, and wrap up the case . . .

My Review: *I voluntarily read this ARC**

That was simply amazing. The setting was beautiful, yet dangerous. The mystery was wonderful and a bit shocking. I do have to admit that I ended up putting the book down after a few chapters. The needlepoint descriptions inspired me to pick up a cross stitch that I've been meaning to get to for over a year.

My Manicure: I ended up being slightly silly with part of this manicure. I started out with Zoya Aspen for a snowy look. The accent nail was done with an ultra fine green Sharpie. My freehanding needs work, but that is a needlepoint tree. The snowflakes were stamped with Bundle Monster H02 and So Metal.
