This one had me laughing out loud sometimes, but it also kept me guessing. It was very well written and flowed well, making it a quick read.

Masked to Death (A Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery)
5th in Series

Paperback: 238 pages

A Caribbean cruise is the perfect setting for a Roget wedding, and Faith meeting Ted’s family. She also hopes the vacation gets their stalled romance moving, but it doesn’t take long for that dream to capsize. Ted’s daughter hates her. The ex-wife is adored. Odessa Roget is surly. And the banned father of a groom, John Roget, requests Faith’s assistance in bringing down a jewel theft ring masterminded by his ex-wife.
Having had a man she loved accuse her of a crime, Faith won’t let Odessa travel down the same path and agrees to help. Faith sets her course on uncovering the true criminals—which might be a groom’s best friend. The romantic week turns disastrous as a wedding is interrupted, suspicious deaths point to murders, and Ted’s daughter schemes to reunite her parents. Instead of diamonds being a girl’s best friend, Faith finds they’re cruising toward Davy Jones’ Locker.

Cruise vacations are supposed to be a highlight of one's life - sit back, relax, be waited upon and enjoy. Weddings are supposed to be joyous events, sharing the love of bringing souls together.
And yet- this combination makes for a very dark cozy mystery book.

Perhaps there is too much family togetherness. Especially when it comes to forced relationships, like a potential new step parent or two for an eleven year old girl who still dreams of getting her parents back together. Or a Grand Dame mother who dreams of a show stopping extravaganza wedding for her son. 

If you have not read previous books in this series, the beginning may be a bit complex to unravel the relationships, but each character is well described and you'll feel their individual energies. You will quickly discover who the power forces are.
There is non stop action and deception, even when it may be difficult to tell who are the good guys, who are the bad, or even if there are any clear cut lines. I actually felt bad for everyone in this book.
It has a complicated, twisted plot with clues being suggested in nearly every paragraph.

About The Author –

The Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery series brings together Christina Freeburn’s love of mysteries, scrapbooking, and West Virginia.
