My Nails and My Book Review - Pressing the Issue by Daryl Wood Gerber


Title: Pressing the Issue
Series: Cookbook Nook Mystery #6
Author: Daryl Wood Gerber

Goodreads Summary: 
The Agatha Award–winning author of Grilling the Subject returns to the Cookbook Nook in Crystal Cove, where the annual Renaissance Fair serves up a helping of crafty courtiers, damsels in distress, and medieval murder . . .

As the annual Renaissance Fair comes to Crystal Cove, Jenna Hart’s Cookbook Nook is packed with tasty treats and all things medieval, while her pal Bailey is ready to swoon over her upcoming nuptials at a local vineyard. But when the two friends discover the body of the vineyard’s owner bludgeoned by a winepress, all their merriment fades, along with their hopes for a vintage year.

Which churlish varlet did the deed? Was it the victim’s errant brother, who stood to inherit the vineyards? Or the owner’s crestfallen ex-girlfriend? Mayhap it was the newly arrived comely wench, or her jealous husband. Fie on them all! Verily, Jenna can’t rest until justice is served, and she vows to track down the killer. But can she sniff out the truth before the villainous culprit strikes again?

Includes tantalizing recipes!

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This is a series best read in order. I was able to follow along, but there were multiple references to previous events that possibly included minor spoilers. The setting was beautiful. The mystery was great with a really good ending. I had a lot of fun reading about the faire, and all the faire speak was an amusing addition.

My Manicure: Ah, Ren Fest. I haven't been to one in years, but it was always so much fun. My manicure today is sort of a loose interpretation of the renaissance era. I started out with Zoya Elphie. It has been so long since I've worn a Pixiedust that I forgot how pretty they can be. The stamping was done with Winstonia 215 and Bundle Monster So Metal.
