Tragic Magic by Laura Childs
R- 2 ish
7th Scrapbooking Mystery
These are lame. I've mentioned that, right? And yet I can't stop reading them. :D
I'm a scrapbooker. I'm also a stamper. And a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I teach classes.
I still find the scrapbooking in these books lame.
But I LOVE the characters and I can't stop reading about them.
And in this most recent installment we FINALLY get a new love interest. I mean, geez louise, the ex was a loser. We really needed to get off the "well, maybe this time he's changed" kick.
Bye bye loser. Moving on to greener pastures. So to speak.
Anyway, this time Carmela and Ava have been picked to help decorate/stage a haunted house. 'Cause hey, it's New Orleans. You gotta love a good haunted house.
But when they go to see the property, a flaming body comes flying out the upstairs window. Probably not a good omen, right?
With Carmela's new beau on the case.... and picking a friend of Carmela's as a suspect, the intrepid scrapbook store owner once again finds herself on the trail of a killer.
I really do recommend starting at the beginning with the series-- Keepsake Crimes is the first.
And don't forget to check out the tasty recipes at the back of every one!
