Embellished to Death is the 3rd Faith Hunter mystery. I don’t know what it is about Faith that all these murders seem to be occurring and somehow her scrapbooking business Scrap This is somehow always somehow involved! Who knew scrapbooking could be so dangerous! 😉
In this book, she and her boyfriend are attending a crop and bringing supplies from Scrap This! to sell to the ladies participating. On the way there, her name comes up because her information is found in an abandoned car and the police think that it may be owned by someone who is committing identity theft. When she arrives, she is almost hit by a car and another woman is hit by a car and is killed.
Of course, Faith can’t keep her nose out of it and decides to try and help figure out what the heck is going on.
While it’s been a while since I read the other two books, this one seemed to have more death and action and more going on than the other two. I think this one is my favorite of the three don’t want to talk about too much of what happened at the crop retreat because I don’t want to give anything away!
If you are a crafter and a lover of good mystery books then you should definitely check out this series!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
“A delightful mystery no person who loves crafts should miss. A little town, a little romance, a little intrigue and a little murder. Join heroine Faith and find out exactly who is doing the embellishing—the kind that doesn’t involve scrapbooking.” – Leann Sweeney, Author of theNew York Times Bestselling Cats in Trouble Mysteries
When Faith Hunter agrees to help PI Bob Roget find an identity thief at a local scrapbook retreat, her friendly croppers’ weekend quickly morphs into a dangerous one. As croppers share their own memories, a killer collects them for her new identity, and doesn’t appreciate Faith in the picture.
Faith struggles to balance her professional, detecting and personal lives as threats and secrets keep her off-balance. Things turn deadly when a woman is killed and Faith is blackmailed. Truth and lies collide when Faith discovers croppers aren’t the only ones embellishing, and the results might end her life.
