My Nails and My Book Review - It Takes a Coven by Carol J. Perry


Title: It Takes a Coven
Series: Witch City Mystery #6
Author: Carol J. Perry

Goodreads Summary: 
There’s a new witch-hunt in Salem, Massachusetts . . . 
When Lee Barrett joins a former student’s bridal party as maid of honor, she expects cake tastings and dress fittings. But wedding planning becomes more peculiar than Lee’s scrying talents could ever predict. There’s a magical baker, a best man with a checkered past, and a talking crow named Poe as the ring bearer. There’s also a kindly old man dead under his apple tree—one of a series of unexplained deaths hanging over the Wiccan community . . .
With witches dropping dead before they even come out of the proverbial broom closet, Lee’s best friend, River, fears she might have somehow unleashed a terrible curse on the city. Now, aided by Poe and her clairvoyant cat, Lee sets out to investigate. Are lives being claimed by vengeful supernatural forces—or by something more shocking? She soon discovers, casting light on the wicked truth can be one killer commitment . . .  

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
I found this book to be a little eerier than previous ones. The wedding planning did help offset a little bit of the creepy feeling. The mystery was well written and surprising. The ending was a little bit confusing to me. I really enjoyed the extra paranormal parts added in to the story.

My Manicure: "A murder of crows". This phrase was repeated throughout the book and ended up being the perfect inspiration. I started with a base of Zoya April. I wanted it to be neutral so the stamping would be more dramatic. The blood splatters were stamped with Bundle Monster 416 and Red Hot. The crow was stamped with S241 and Straight Up Black.
