Synopsis

With bills piling up and a brassy new partner at her scrapbooking shop, the last thing Kiki Lowenstein needs is a surprise visit from her browbeating mother. But when shots fired into the crowd narrowly miss Kiki at her daughter’s May Day pageant, it’s another mother—St. Louis’s wealthiest matriarch—who winds up dead.

While creating a memorial album for the murdered beer heiress, Kiki becomes bait in a dangerous trap as threats from her old foe mount against her. With help from friends in high and low places, including hunky beau Chad Detweiler, Kiki finds herself facing a grave ultimatum: catch the killer or be cropped out of her own family album.

Praise:
"Enjoyable first-person account of a single mom . . . Crafters will enjoy the project instructions peppered throughout."—Booklist

"Slan’s scrapbook mysteries are most valuable for the well-developed characters and the issues they raise."—Kirkus Reviews
