Books | Scrapbooking Mystery: Gossamer Ghost [Giveaway]

Disclosure: This site is a participant in the affiliate program.

If you are a scrapbooker who is also into mysteries, then Laura Childs has the perfect series for you. The new addition of Gossamer Ghost this month makes a creepy total of 12 books in her bestselling Scrapbooking Mystery series of books.

The series centers around scrapbook store owner Carmela Bertrand, who has an unsettling habit of tripping over dead bodies in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Of course, she then has to solve the mysteries surrounding their deaths, earning her a reputation as an amateur crime solver. She does all of this in between running her successful store, Memory Mine, and attending all New Orleans most glittering society events.

Gossamer Ghost

In Gossamer Ghost, which is the twelfth book in the bestselling Scrapbooking Mysteries series, Carmela discovers the dead body of the owner of a neighboring antiques shop. When the eccentric man’s fiancée begs Carmela for help solving the crime, she soon has a long list of suspects – and lots of creepy crafting to do, as Halloween is rapidly approaching! The book features recipes for classic Cajun favorites as well as instructions for fun craft projects.

Laura Childs

Laura Childs is the author of the New York Times bestselling Tea Shop Mysteries, Cackleberry Club Mysteries, and Scrapbooking Mysteries series. She’s currently working on Parchment & Old Lace (Scrapbooking Mystery #13), due for release in October 2015. She’s also got a new series in development under the byline of Gerry Schmitt, featuring a single mom named Afton Tangler. The first thriller in that series will be called Finders Creepers.
