adventure with Scooby Doo and the Mystery Bus gang The language comes off as trite, rude and childish instead of humorous The romantic interests fell flat and the heroine and her bff have morphed into being rude, selfish and pushy The phrase holy came upin this book than in an episode of the old Batman series The main situations are also a little beyond belief Why Ava would feel responsible to step in and save the day for a house tour is beyond me All in all Carmella bumbles her way through 300 pages asking herself way too many times what am I doing and why am I doing this One of my favorite

even into scrapbooking before I started reading this series, but now I m definitely finding the allure.This book has a very interesting mystery involving Mardi Gras, glitter and Carmela s ex husband, Shamus You ll find that a lot of Cozy Mystery series have the heroine s exs involved and as a romance reader, I find this fascinating Usually in the books I read, the ex is the bad guy, or someone that isn t mentioned in a positive light So I really like that with Mysteries, they become key players The dynamic between Shamus and Carmela isn t always fun or bright, but it does add something to the book Like I said, I really enjoy seeing them talk to each other and I felt like having Shamus involved really made the mystery that muchinteresting.In addition to that, I really adore the friendship between Carmela and Ava They are just so fun to read about and I love that you get to see different sides to Carmela s character It just makes this series so much fun.As you can see, I really enjoyed this book I think if you re in the mood for a fun and bright Cozy Mystery series, then Laura Childs is an excellent choice I can always look forward to reading a new Laura Childs book

Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher I was not required to write a positive review All opinions expressed are my own I m a longtime fan of Laura Childs, but this book really let

so bad that I just want Carmella to just be bad at something so that I can believe in her as a character again Ava remains a favorite I m in love with their friendship I ll look forward to future Scrapbooking Mysteries, but this one let me down
