My Nails and My Book Review - Killing in C Sharp by Alexia Gordon


Title: Killing in C Sharp
Series: Gethsemane Brown Mystery #3
Author: Alexia Gordon

Goodreads Summary: 
She saved Carraigfaire—but can she save her friends?

Gethsemane Brown fought off an attack by a sleazy hotel developer who wanted to turn her Irish cottage into a tourist trap. Now she must face a vengeful ghost determined to exact revenge for her murder centuries ago.

This ghost’s wrath spares no one—not Gethsemane’s students, Inspector Niall O’Reilly, fellow teacher Frankie Grennan, or a group of ghost hunters descended on Dunmullach to capture proof ghosts exist.

Proof Gethsemane has to quash to keep Eamon, her resident ghost and friend, from becoming an internet sensation.

As if a spiteful specter wasn’t bad enough, a crooked music reviewer turns up dead in the opera house orchestra pit, a famous composer is arrested for the crime, and Gethsemane must team up with a notorious true-crime author to clear his name.

If she doesn’t, friends will die, a ghost she cares about will never know peace, and she’ll star in a final act gruesome enough for any opera.

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
Oh my gosh, I was on the edge of my seat through most of this book. That ghost was seriously freaking me out. The mystery was intriguing and had me guessing the entire time. I did find the ending to be a bit bittersweet.

My Manicure: I was inspired by Ireland for this design. I tried to do a four leaf clover on my tester, but I couldn't get the sizing right so I went with random squiggly lines. I started out with KBShimmer Alloy Matey. So blingy, and a lot of fun to say. The marbling was done with an unlabeled Color Club, Zoya Tiana, and clear Wet n Wild. Adding in clear allows the base to show through instead of trying to water marble with glitter. If you want an in depth description on how to water marble, look up some YouTube tutorials. It is really cool to see what designs people can create. My design actually does show up better than this shows. I had to adjust my light to its lowest setting and it still washed out most of the detail.
