My Nails and My Book Review - Bleeding Tarts by Kirsten Weiss


Title: Bleeding Tarts
Series: Pie Town Mystery #2
Author: Kirsten Weiss

Goodreads Summary: 
Val's new pies are foolproof--but not bulletproof.
Old West ghost towns are as American as apple pie. So what better place to sponsor a pie-eating contest than the Bar X, a fake ghost town available for exclusive private events on the edge of Silicon Valley. Valentine Harris is providing the pies, hoping to boost business for her struggling Pie Town shop and become a regular supplier for the Bar X.

But no sooner does she arrive in town than a stray bullet explodes the cherry pie in her hands. And the delicious dessert is not the only victim. Val finds the Bar X bartender shot dead in an alley. Egged on by her flaky friend and pie crust specialist, Charlene, Val aims to draw out the shooter. But solving a real murder in a fake ghost town won't be easy as pie. And if Val doesn't watch her back, her pies won't be the only thing filled full of lead . . .

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
A fun addition to the series. The wild west town setting was fun, but I do wish it was featured more. The mystery was fun and not overly complicated. The recipes at the end had me cracking up.

My Manicure: I'm calling this my mild wild west manicure. I started out with a base of Zoya Cinnamon. The saloon doors were stamped with Winstonia 214 and Bundle Monster Heart of Gold.
