Description

A small-town Virginia housewife and her scrapbooking circle investigate a suspicious death in this cozy mystery series debut.

Having traded in her career as a successful investigative journalist for the life of a stay-at-home mom in picturesque Cumberland Creek, Virginia, Annie can’t help but feel that something’s missing. But she finds solace in a local “crop circle” of scrapbookers united by chore-shy husbands, demanding children, and occasional fantasies of their former single lives. And when the quiet idyll of their small town is shattered by a young mother’s suicide, they band together to find out what went wrong . . .

Annie resurrects her reporting skills and discovers that Maggie Rae was a closet scrapbooker who left behind more than a few secrets—and perhaps a few enemies. As they sift through Maggie Rae’s mysteriously discarded scrapbooks, Annie and her “crop” sisters begin to suspect that her suicide may have been murder. It seems that something sinister is lurking beneath the town’s beguilingly calm façade—like a killer with unfinished business . . .

“A scrapbook of zany small town life with characters you'll want to visit again and again in each new novel.” —Emilie Richards, author of Sunset Bridge 

“Imagine the housewives of Wisteria Lane sipping tea, scrapbooking, and solving murders, and you have this gem of a debut.” —Lois Winston, author of Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun 

“Intriguing characters, eerie happenings . . . Kept me guessing ‘til the end.” —Clare O’Donohue

Includes tips and a glossary of terms for the modern scrapbooker!
