Postcards from the Dead was recommended to me by my mother. Mom is an avid mystery reader gobbling up more than a dozen books a week. This series, by Laura Childs, not only includes a mystery to solve but there are scrapbooking tips and recipes included! I love crafting while I watch episodes of Forensic Files so this series was right up my alley.
Our main character Carmela Bertrand owns a scrapbooking shop in New Orleans. During a Mardi Gras parade, while Carmela is waiting to be interviewed for a local radio station, the on air personality is murdered and Carmela is left to solve the crime. This was a fast read and the scrapbooking tips were a fun addition.I am now working my way through the Scrapbooking Mystery series.
