Designed to Death is another book in the Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery. It seems that Faith and her grandmother’s store is always the center of a criminal investigation lately. After holding an event at the scrapbooking store a fight breaks out between Darlene and her cousin Belinda. Darlene accuses Belinda of stealing her scrapbook designs and entering them in a contest which she then won.
Later that night the alarm company calls Faith and said that the alarm had been triggered at the store. She tells them to call the cops and heads out to the store to find that Belinda is there – dead.
Despite being told to not dabble in private investigating once again, Faith wants to find out who did it. She is convinced that it is Darlene, based on the fight that they had earlier. Except that in order to find out more, she must team up with Darlene.
The suspects seem to keep multiplying and the police detective keeps telling Faith to butt out.
This was another really great mystery story and I really had no idea who to think did it because there were so many twists and turns and other possible evidence popping up. I am looking forward to the 3rd story coming out in early 2014!
I received a free e-copy in order to write this this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
