Heavy on fashion reads - The Bloody Shoe Affair by Joy York

100_0421


Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! As you all know, I love books. I am a huge book worms so when I received The Bloody Shoe Affair by Joy York to review on Heavy on Fashion, I was excited. As a young kid in the 90's, I loved Nancy Drew novels and any mystery books for that matter.  So when I first cracked open, The Bloody Show Affair was suspecting a Nancy Drew type of novel. I am happy to say, I received so much more much more. 


The Bloody Shoe Affair is set in 1968 about a shy teenager named Christi who visits her charismatic seeking Lily in Roselyn, Mississippi. Lily is a jailer's daughter and a great sense of adventure. Though this book focuses around a mysterious pair of bloody shoes found at a murder scene, it also about Christi coming into her own. In one summer, two girls learned how strong and brave they could be. I don't want to give too much away but it was filled with action, suspense, and teenage hijinks that are laugh out loud funny. I also found myself reflecting on my own teenage experiences though not that as excited as The Bloody Shoe Affair. 

I also loved that Joy used her real life childhood experience to find inspiration of The Bloody Shoe Affair. It gives a great and realistic feel to the novel. This book gives a real look at finding and exposing oneself to new experiences.   If you have a mystery novel lover and you need to buy a gift for the holidays, I would suggest adding The Bloody Show affair.  It is a great read for any age.

I had the chance to check out 5 fabulous colors from the line, including the limited edition polish Jaded by EJ johnson. So without further ago, here is Heavy on Fashion reviews Chrome Girl Nail Polish collection.
Limited Edition Jaded by EJ Johnson: A metallic hunter green with an iridescent marbled look. This color pairs well with light pinks tones and blue / green colors!  You can also use some great contrasting colors like oranges and yellows.
