My Nails and My Book Review - Escape Claws by Linda Reilly


Title: Escape Claws
Series: Cat Lady Mystery #1
Author: Linda Reilly

Goodreads Summary: 
Here, killer, killer, killer . . .

For the first time in sixteen years, Lara Caphart has returned to her hometown of Whisker Jog, New Hampshire. She wants to reconnect with her estranged Aunt Fran, who’s having some difficulty looking after herself—and her eleven cats. Taking care of a clowder of kitties is easy, but keeping Fran from being harassed by local bully Theo Barnes is hard. The wealthy builder has his sights set on Fran’s property, and is determined to make her an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.

Then Lara spots a blue-eyed ragdoll cat that she swears is the reincarnation of her beloved Blue, her childhood pet. Pursuing the feline to the edge of Fran’s yard, she stumbles upon the body of Theo Barnes, clearly a victim of foul play. To get her and Fran off the suspect list, Lara finds herself following the cat’s clues in search of a killer. Is Blue’s ghost really trying to help her solve a murder, or has Lara inhaled too much catnip?

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

This was a fairly strong start to a new series. The mystery was well written and a bit surprising. The only thing I didn't really like was that the whole beginning seemed to have an overall feeling of sadness to it. But it did end up with a happier feeling by the end.

My Manicure: There was a line in here that was perfect for this manicure. It was about keeping the cats away from paint so they wouldn't walk through it and start painting things. I ended up adding a bit of Christmas cheer to it simply because of when I scheduled this post. I started out with Vapid Happy Freakin' New Year 2017. I can't stop staring at it! The paw prints were done with Bundle Monster 424, Tree of Life, and Red Sea. Fun, festive, and cute!
