My Nails and My Book Review - Dial Meow for Murder by Bethany Blake


Title: Dial Meow For Murder
Series: Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery #2
Author: Bethany Blake

Goodreads Summary: Even an experienced pet sitter like Daphne Templeton can be fooled by animal behavior: how can an adorably tiny fuzz ball named Tinkleston be capable of sudden flying leaps with cat claws bared? But human behavior remains even more mysterious, especially when Tinkleston's owner is murdered on the night of a gala fundraiser for Fur-ever Friends Pet Rescue.

Accompanied by her unflappable basset hound, Socrates, Daphne plans to take charge of Tinks the Terror and leave the crime-solving to handsome detective Jonathan Black. But while luring the prickly Persian out of hiding, she uncovers clues that might take suspicion off her own mother. Maeve Templeton already has a reputation as a killer--in real estate. How far would she go to bag Sylvan Creek's most coveted property, the Flynt Mansion?

To expose the truth, Daphne finds herself donning a deranged clown costume on an autumnal adventure that might just be crazy enough to work--if it doesn't get her killed.

Includes recipes for homemade pet treats! 

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**

I really enjoyed the mystery, but there was too much relationship drama for me to fully enjoy the book. There were some great twists throughout the book, and the reveal surprised me. Daphne also surprised me with her decisions at the end. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Daphne and Socrates.

My Manicure: Since fall is finally here, and this book is set during fall, I had to do a nice fall color mani. I started out with Zoya Renee, then put blobs of Zoya Arizona and Pippa on and dabbed plastic wrap on it for a random, abstract look. After it dried, I topped it with Zoya Satin top coat.
