31 Day Challenge - Day 24: Inspired By A Book

Today's challenge was "Inspired By A Book". At first I wasn't sure what to do, and my friend Amanda asked me what books I had read recently. One of the more recent books that I read was "Too Close To Miss", by John Perich. John is my cousin and this was his debut book (is that what they call it?)

Here is a little synopsis of the book from the Amazon website:
"Mara Cunningham knew that sleeping with a married man was a bad idea. But when her lover shows up in the hospital after his wife and son are murdered, the rumors about Mara turn dangerous. Now she's the prime suspect in a double homicide, and the real killers will stop at nothing to silence her. Mara's race against time takes her from the dense heart of Boston to the dark woods of New Hampshire, from gritty streets to the halls of power. Before she's through, she'll learn just which of her friends she can trust - and she'll stare death in the face."



It was a book that kept me reading and was easy to get through, if you want to download it for kindle, you can get it here, for free :)

As you can see, I tried to replicate the color. I also tried splatter mani to get the "bloodstained" look. I hadn't tried this technique before but plan to do a splatter mani on it's own in June. What do you think?
