When Faith Hunter agrees to be a vendor at a scrapbooking conference, she just thinks that she is helping her grandmother, who owns a scrapbooking store. She does not expect to be involved in a murder investigation, but that is exactly where she finds herself. She decides that she needs to investigate the murder and with the help of her boyfriend that is what she does. But with so many people attending the conference, there are more suspects than she knows what to do with. Who knew that scrapbooking could be so deadly?
The characters are decently developed and three dimensional but in my opinion, they could have been even better developed. One problem I had with the characters is that there are so many of them. I had a hard time keeping everyone straight in my mind. I have not read either of the two previous books in the series, so that may have helped with my confusion. But I just wish there would have been a little more of a backstory with the characters.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery is carried on throughout most of the book and there were many twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I really liked the fact that this book revolved around scrapbooking, which I really enjoy doing.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted, well plotted cozy mystery. If you enjoy scrapbooking, then this book is a must read. But I would advise reading the books in order because, I suspect, the character growth and development will be much more obvious. I will definitely be reading the first two books in the series to see if I am right.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley and Henery Press for the opportunity to read and review this book.
