Book Description

 For Kiki Lowenstein, only one thing is (marginally) worse than her selfish, hyper-critical mother coming for an extended visit — dodging bullets. In the merry midst of the timehonored May Day celebration at Kiki’s daughter’s private school, a sniper fires shots into the crowd, killing deep-pocketed alum Edwina Fitzgerald. Did someone want to punish the imperious, widely hated matriarch — or was Kiki the intended target all along?

My Review

As a fan of mysteries and scrapbooking, I was thrilled to be able to review Ready,Scrap, Shoot from Midnight Ink through Net Galley.  I found the book a little confusing at first but by the middle I was deeply committed to reading and enjoying the book.

Kiki Lowenstein is a realistic heroine and she is surrounded by interesting characters.  And oh my does she have the nastiest mother!  It is a really good cozy mystery with a good story. Recipes and scrapbooking tips complete this cozy.

Ready, Scrap,Shoot publishes in April. Be sure to preorder a copy if you like cozies.
