My Nails and My Book Review - Tart of Darkness by Denise Swanson


Title: Tart of Darkness
Series: Chef-to-Go Mystery #1
Author: Denise Swanson

Goodreads Summary: 
Right when Dani thinks she's hit a dead-end in her career, she unexpectedly inherits an enormous old house in a quaint college town. This gives her the perfect opportunity to pursue her true passion--cooking! So Dani opens Chef-to-Go, preparing delicious, ready-made meals for hungry students attending the nearby university, as well as providing personal chef services and catering events for the local community. To help support her new business, she opens her home to a few students, renting them rooms and becoming almost like a big sister figure in their lives.

But just as Dani is relishing her sweet new life, the friend of one of her boarders is murdered, and Dani becomes one of the primary suspects! She'll have to scramble to clear her name and save her business before the killer reappears--perhaps to silence the new chef forever.

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
A fun start to a new series. The setting is really interesting. I would love to see the house that Dani inherited. It sounds beautiful. The language is a little strong at times for a cozy, but not overly obscene or graphic. I really enjoyed the mystery, but I felt it fizzled at the end rather than going out with a bang.

My Manicure: Today I was inspired by Dani's classic red and white checkered bags. I started out with OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress. I always forget how pretty this red is. The check pattern was stamped with Bundle Monster XL 201 and Bam! White.
