WELL, KNOCK ME DOWN WITH A FEATHER!!
Here is a post from ScrapScene: >Book Review: Death Swatch - A Scrapbooking Mystery Posted: 21 Aug 2008 07:45 AM CDT Laura Childs’ new book, “Death Swatch: A Scrapbooking Mystery,” is the latest in her Scrapbooking Mystery series. Written in a traditional “cozy” style, you will find that reading the previous books are not a pre-requisite for enjoying this book! The story follows scrapbook store owner, Carmela Bertrand as she finds herself following clues to solve a mysterious murder. Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, many true-to life eccentricities of the locale are described. From expressions to food, you will feel like you are actually there! There are even recipes in the back of the book which are mentioned within the story. I also read, with interest, all the scrapbooking-related references throughout the book. The main character teaches classes in her scrapbook store, describes projects that she and her friends are working on, discusses new inventory, etc. The back of the book also contains some handy scrapbooking tips and ideas from the author. “Death Swatch: A Scrapbooking Mystery” will be released September 2nd by Penguin Group. It is up for pre-order right now. You can order your copy here: Death Swatch: A Scrapbooking Mystery "> I do believe there are previous volumes in Libraries in various states here in Australia. Could be worth the hunt. I'll let you know more when I've read one or two or more!! I'm certainly curious!
