Halloween means spooky scrapbooks for the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop, but what’s been happening around town is truly frightening. First a dead woman is found in the freezer at Pamela’s Pie Palace, and the next day a second woman is found murdered by the river. Reporter Annie Chamovitz learns the victims were sisters and is certain their deaths are linked. Most bizarre of all, both women were found clutching scrapbook pages.
As their Saturday night crop quickly becomes an opportunity to puzzle out the murders, the ladies begin to wonder if Pamela is hiding more than her secret recipes for delicious pies–or if the crimes are related to the startling discovery that there are gangs in Cumberland Creek. As All Hallows Eve approaches, the crafty croppers must cut and paste the clues to unmask a deadly killer.
Includes tips and a glossary of terms for the modern scrapbooker!
Struck me immediately the cover of this book and I have decided to read it and I have not regretted. It was a really fun and engaging read, it's one of those books you pick up and read in one sitting. The plot is compelling, the characters are warm and likeable, the ending to the story truly surprised me and did not see coming.
This time a group of women who are part of a club of scrapbooking have to solve two murders. Two sisters are found dead in two different places of the city and most likely their murders are linked.
Although it is the fifth book in this series can be read as a stand alone, I can not wait to read the whole series.
The story was light and easy to read with a compelling mystery, charming characters, and witty dialogue.
I definitely recommend this one.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.
