My Nails and My Book Review - Class Reunions Are Murder by Libby Klein


Title: Class Reunions Are Murder
Series: Poppy McAllister Mystery #1
Author: Libby Klein

Goodreads Summary: 
For fortysomething Poppy McAllister, taking a stroll down memory lane in Cape May, New Jersey, isn’t just awkward—it’s deadly.

Newly widowed and stuck in a middle-aged funk, Poppy has been running on cookies, infomercials, and one-sided chats with her cat for months. There’s no way on earth she’s attending her twenty-five-year class reunion—especially after receiving a very bizarre letter from Barbie, the popular cheerleader who taunted her all through high school. At least, not until Poppy’s best friend practically drags her to the event . . .

Using the dreaded homecoming as an excuse to visit her eccentric Aunt Ginny, Poppy vows to leave Cape May with pride and Spanx intact. Too bad Barbie is still the queen of mean at the reunion. And worse, that her dead body is lying right in front of Poppy’s old locker. Singled out as the killer, it’s up to Poppy to confront her past and clear her name. But between protecting her aunt from disaster and tackling a gluten-free diet, can Poppy crack the case before she’s voted “Most Likely to Die” by the murderer?

Includes Seven Recipes from Poppy’s Kitchen!

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This was a super fun start to a new series. Poppy is great as a main character. She has her flaws, but she also knows what is important to her. The mystery was well written with a great ending.

My Manicure: Oh my gosh, I am cringing so bad right now. This is supposed to look horrific, and it is directly inspired by the book, but wow it is worse than I imagined. I started with an unlabeled Color Club yellow that decided to apply horribly. Then I painted half of my nail with OPI Hey Baby. After that dried, I carefully used a black Kiss striping polish to paint the thin line.
