I'm continuing to read Gossamer Ghost by Laura Childs. This book is the 12th in her Scrapbooking Mystery series and is getting me in the mood for Halloween.
Carmela is gearing up for the very busy week that is Halloween week in New Orleans. Tons of parties and spooky events, as well as a store swamped with customers buying all of their Halloween supplies means a very busy Carmela. While walking home she peers into her neighbor's shop, Oddities, only to hear a muffled sound. Was it a scream? A cry for help? Carmela decides to investigate, only to find the dead body of the shop's owner. Feeling sorry for the owner's assistant, as well as being the person to find the body, Carmela feels it only right to look into the man's murder-even against her boyfriend (the police detective)'s wishes. Conducting her own investigation while juggling Halloween events can be difficult, we can only hope it won't be deadly!
Scrapbooking and other crafty tips as well as recipes are included.
