My Nails and My Book Review - Murder Has Nine Lives by Laura Levine


Title: Murder Has Nine Lives
Series: Jaine Austen Mystery #14
Author: Laura Levine

Goodreads Summary: The future is looking bright for freelance writer Jaine Austen. She's signed up for a new job, she's looking forward to a tropical vacation, and her cat Prozac is slated to star in a major commercial. But when the claws come out behind the scenes, Jaine worries that murder might be the only thing to meow about. . .

A writer's life is far from glamorous. Still, Jaine's new gig to write an ad campaign for Toiletmasters' new line of self-flushing toilets comes with a few perks--including a date with the president's dreamy nephew. And with a much-needed trip to Maui on the horizon, it seems life couldn't get any better--until her cat Prozac is tapped to star in a Skinny Kitty commercial. But Jaine never would have guessed the world of cat food could be quite so catty. . .

Jaine is nervous that Prozac won't be able to take direction, but the finicky furball ditches her diva behavior for the camera, eating and napping on cue like a seasoned pro. But just as Jaine begins dreaming of fame and fortune, Skinny Kitty's inventor drops dead on the set. Everyone is a suspect--including Jaine. And she'll have to get her paws on the truth before the killer takes a swipe at another victim. . .

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

Oh wow, I did not see that ending coming at all. The easiest way to sum up my thoughts on this book is this – if you liked her previous books, you will most likely like this one. Prozac doesn't have as many crazy antics, but Jaine's parents are still absolutely ridiculous, Lance is a pain in Jaine's butt, and Jaine is still Jaine.

My Manicure: I feel like I'm cheating a bit with this one, but I'm going with a Prozac manicure since Prozac managed to get Jaine tangled up in the middle of the murder. I used two coats of Zoya Trixie as my base, then stamped on a cat with plate QA40 and Sinful Colors Black On Black. I don't know the maker of the plate; it was just a cheap plate from a Chinese store.
