Looking for a craft cozy so memorable you’ll stay up late scrapping about it? Well, welcome to the town of Eden.
Faith Hunter, who is supposed to be planning her wedding, instead finds herself distracted by the town scrapbook she was commissioned to create. Eden’s oldest mystery, the founding family’s exodus nearly a hundred years ago, remains unsolved.
A search through the family’s abandoned mansion leads to the uncovering of bones on that very property. And then ex-boyfriend Steve Davis announces a surprise heir has staked a claim.
How can Faith not be distracted? Now she’s determined to dig up the truth left behind.
Because scrappers are multi-taskers extraordinaire, Faith can’t say no when family friend Wyatt Buford asks her to look into his deadbeat father’s disappearing act and his connection to the murder.
Her quest for answers unearths secrets past and present that some would prefer stay buried at any cost. Faith’s resolve to present the facts and nothing but about Eden’s history could lead to her own future being cut short.
See what I mean about memorable? Delve in to Eden and you’ll find a cozy you won’t soon forget.



Secrets old and recurring slam together to keep the town in gossip for a long time coming.
The Everton Mansion sat empty and neglected for decades. After difficult and expensive decisions on what to do with it, repairs are going well until the discovery of a body brings things to a sudden halt. This happens to coincide with Faith researching the Evertons for a communty scrapbook project. A body only makes this more fascinating to her and she can not resist sticking her nose into the business of several long time resident families while trying not to cross the delicate line posed by her detective fiance and new part time boss, future brother-in-law, Bob. To complicate things, her grandmothers scrapbooking store may be in jeopady as well as the venue for Faith's wedding reception. Someone doesn't want secrets revealed and someone else wants them revealed only when they decide it is time. 
Even if you have not read the wonderful previous books in this series, this plot is intriguing enough to make you stay up late reading. I wish I had started this book earlier in the day.
You might need your own whiteboard to keep track of the clues and how each is tie to and relates to the others. They all come together but Faith has her work cut out for her.
