My Nails and My Book Review - The Hostess With the Ghostess by E. J. Copperman


Title: The Hostess With the Ghostess
Series: Haunted Guesthouse Mystery #9
Author: E. J. Copperman

Goodreads Summary: 
Things are never quiet for long at the Haunted Guesthouse. Right as Alison Kerby finally gets some peace, long-time deceased Paul Harrison’s recently murdered brother, Richard, shows up looking for the ghostly detective. But Paul has left for parts unknown months ago. The only thing is, she doesn’t know how to find him. And she’s going to need to because Richard’s isn’t the only murder still left unsolved.

As she searches for Paul, Alison discovers that Richard, who was a lawyer, was working a case about a woman accused of murdering her stepfather. It quickly becomes clear that Richard was getting too close to the truth, and was forcibly kept quiet. Now as Alison continues her investigation, she gets a creeping sensation that the murderer doesn’t appreciate her snooping around. And if she doesn’t stop, she’ll be next in The Hostess with the Ghostess, the witty and delightful follow-up to national bestselling author E. J. Copperman’s Spouse on Haunted Hill.

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
This is the first book I have read in this series, and I can't wait to read more. The mystery was well written and a bit shocking. The reveal managed a nice balance between suspense and humor.

My Manicure: To fit with the haunted theme, I went with a ghostly whispy...thing. I started with Sinful Colors Black on Black. I decided to try a different technique today because I keep eating through the base color with acetone using my normal technique. This time I just used white acrylic paint and water. Yup, as long as you top coat it, acrylic paint will work over nail polish. It took a few tries to figure out. My first attempts used too much water and all of the paint slid right off.
