About the Author
Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Cackleberry Club, Tea Shop, and Scrapbooking mysteries. In her past life she was a Clio Award-winning advertising writer and CEO of her own marketing firm. She lives in Minnesota.
I am a big fan of the cozy mystery series by Laura Childs: The Tea Shoppe Mysteries, the Scrapbooking Mysteries and the Cackleberry Club Mysteries. The Skeleton Letters is the latest in the Scrapbooking series which are set in the delightful city of New Orleans.
Both Carmela and Ava are featured prominently in this outing. A friend of theirs is murdered in Vieux Carre church just when they happen to be there. Although Carmela's beau, Detective Babcock warns her off the case, Carmela has to dig into things for herself. Lots of red herrings are dropped and I was surprised to find out who the murderer was in the end.
Probably not my favorite of the Scrapbooking series but a good read for a rainy afternoon.
