Paper, Scissors, Death by Joanna Campbell Slan

4 Stars
R- 2 ish

Ah, yes, another scrapbooking mystery series.

Does anyone else get a HUGE kick out of the idea of "forensic scrapbooking"?  I love it.  It's hilarious.  And fabulous.

Fluffy mystery, but it was a fun story. 

A little preachy about the wonderfulness of the scrapbooking community.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the scrapbooking community.  It's great.  But I don't spout paragraphs about it.  Little bit cloying at times.  Not to mention after a while it comes off as slightly defensive.

Overall, cute story.  Good one to try if you're in need of a new fluffy mystery series.... and who's not?  :D

One more for the Support Your Local Library Challenge!


  1. Thanks for giving Paper, Scissors, Death a try. I've actually had folks ask if there's really such a thing as "forensic scrapbooking."

    Hmmm. Maybe I'm on to something!

    The second book in the series, Cut, Crop & Die, came out last June, and I'm taking a break from proofreading Photo, Snap, Shot, the third in the series.

  2. Forensic scrapbooking? I don't think I've ever heard of that.

    Sounds like a fun book, though!

  3. I have Cut, Crop and Die on hold.

    I LOVE the idea of forensic scrapbooking.... some tv producer needs to get on that....
