Description

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.
