My Nails and My Book Review - Murder at the Mansion by Janet Finsilver


Title: Murder at the Mansion
Series: Kelly Jackson Mystery #2
Author: Janet Finsilver

Goodreads Summary: Fortunes, fineries, and foul play . . .

It’s whale-watching season in Redwood Cove, and B & B manager Kelly Jackson’s battening down the hatches for the tourist rush at Redwood Heights—a Victorian-style estate owned by her boss. And due to recent jewelry thefts, her duties include keeping track of the many dust-covered artifacts spread throughout the property. But when Kelly finds Sylvia Porter’s lifeless body, menial tasks don’t seem so terrible. Enlisting the help of a ragtag group of brainy retirees, aka the “Silver Sentinels,” Kelly’s on the hunt for clues hidden behind the mansion’s glamorous façade. . .and for a killer who may want to make history of her next!

My Review: **I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

Oh. My. Gosh. I think I need a vacation to coastal California after reading that. By the end of the first chapter, I could practically smell the salty ocean air. The mystery was beautifully written, with twists and turns every time I thought I had figured something out.

My Manicure: Oh my gosh this was nearly impossible to photograph. Either the holo wouldn't show and my skin tone was crazy, or the holo showed but was crazy blurry. This picture had the best balance of in focus and holo bling. I chose a raven/feather theme for two reasons. The first reason is because Kelly chose a raven before she left home. The other reason - well, you'll just have to read the book to find out. I started with 3 coats of ILNP Mega (X). I nearly blinded myself with the holo when I topcoated it - it is seriously that intense. Then I stamped the ravens with Winstonia plate W205, and the feathers with Bundle Monster BM-419. All stamping was done with Sinful Colors Black on Black.
