New Orleans is in the throes of another fantastic Mardi Gras celebration when the party gets crashed by a murderer . . .

About the Author

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mysteries, the Cackleberry Club Mysteries, and the Scrapbooking Mysteries. She is a consummate tea drinker, scrapbooker, and dog lover, and travels frequently to China and Japan with Dr. Bob, her professor husband. In her past life she was a Clio Award-winning advertising writer and CEO of her own marketing firm.


At the start of Childs's flat 10th Scrapbooking mystery set in New Orleans (after 2011's Skeleton Letters), craft store owner Carmela Bertrand is waiting to be interviewed by Kimber Breeze, "the perky, Botoxed reporter from KBEZ-TV" who's covering Mardi Gras from the wrought-iron balcony of her French Quarter hotel. Suddenly, Kimber disappears from the TV cameras. Carmela rushes onto the balcony, where she finds a thick cord tied to the railing-and Kimber's lifeless body dangling ten feet below. Carmela once again turns sleuth, encouraged by best friend Ava Gruiex, though Carmela's love interest, Det. Edgar Babcock, attempts to discourage her, especially after he learns she's receiving mysterious postcards purportedly from Kimber. Only devoted series fans are likely to struggle through the less-than-compelling prose, as Carmela jumps to conclusions while recklessly disregarding her own safety as well as her boyfriend's professional concerns.

Once again, New Orleans's Mardi Gras turns deadly for scrapbooker Carmela Bertrand when a local newscaster dies while working the parade. Aided by her BFF, Ava, Carmela hunts for answers in their tenth cozy adventure (after Skeleton Letters). (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
