My Nails and My Book Review - Antiques Wanted by Barbara Allan


Title: Antiques Wanted
Series: Trash 'n' Treasures Mystery #12
Author: Barbara Allan

Goodreads Summary: 
Spring lassoes small-town Serenity, as Brandy Borne's crime-bustin' mama Vivian hatches a harebrained scheme to run for County Sheriff--ropin' in her daughter to join the rodeo as campaign manager. As the two-woman posse tracks down voters at a local assisted-living home, Brandy's attempts at corralling Mother's impractical whims make her feel like a tinhorn on a bucking bronco. But sure as shootin', unhappy trails lie ahead. . . .

Shortly after the Borne gals receive a valuable signed photo of an old-timey cowboy actor from the elderly aunt of Vivian's political opponent, a massive explosion sends Brandy to the ER and auntie to the grave.

With a string of unexplained deaths turning Sunny Meadow into Boot Hill, the ditzy duo--aided by their clever shih tzu Sushi--must lay down the law on a deadly outlaw . . . before someone's elected the next victim, with the Bornes headin' toward their last round-up!

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
A fun story with an unsatisfying mystery. I honestly love the unique way the series is written. It is quirky and feels like how someone would actually tell a story. The mystery was just weird. It was hard to follow at times and the ending didn't make a whole lot of sense.

My Manicure: So, yeah, this is how I picture Vivian as she runs for Sheriff. It just seems like something she would do. I started with Sinful Colors Leather Loose. Then I stamped the Sheriff with Winstonia 214 and Bundle Monster Heart of Gold.
