SCRAPBOOK of the Dead
Scrapbook of the Dead by Mollie Cox Bryan
This series just keeps getting better and better with every book, and SCRAPBOOK OF THE DEAD is the cream of the *crop. ~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
…one of those books I read in one sitting–I just couldn’t put it down! ~Book Babble
Ms. Bryan grabs the readers attention from page one and doesn’t let go until the end. Not only does she craft an engaging mystery, but she has created wonderful characters with great depth. ~Booklady’s Booknotes
Ms. Bryan does not shy away from potentially controversial subjects either, which also earns points with me because I live in a small town and I know how that can go. ~Back Porchervations
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!
In addition to the Cumberland Creek mystery series, Mollie Cox Bryan wrote the regional bestseller Mrs. Rowe’s Little Book of Southern Pies and Mrs. Rowe’s Restaurant Cookbook: A Lifetime of Recipes from the Shenandoah Valley . An award-winning journalist and poet, she currently blogs, cooks, and scrapbooks in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with her husband and two daughters. Scrapbook of Secrets was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Novel.
