LET'S GET COZY (AGAIN)! GOSSAMER GHOST: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

NOW AVAILABLE IN MASS MARKET!
GOSSAMER GHOST
A Scrapbooking Mystery
BY LAURA CHILDS

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Carmela Bertrand knows that Halloween in New Orleans means a week of rabble-rousing, costumed craziness—and she can’t wait to get the party started. But when a local antiques dealer turns up dead, Carmela suddenly finds herself in a real-life danse macabre…

An evening’s work deciding on the class schedule for her scrapbooking shop has put Carmela in the mood to kick up her heels. But after some strange noises draw her into Oddities, the neighboring antiques shop, Carmela’s night is abruptly put on hold when a bloody body falls out of a curio cabinet—and into her arms.

While shop owner Marcus Joubert was known for being an eccentric with a penchant for eclectic merchandise, Carmela never thought he was the kind of man who could inspire the passion required to kill. But when Marcus’s assistant—and fiancĂ©e—Mavis reveals that a priceless death mask was also stolen, it becomes clear that murder wasn’t the culprit’s sole intention.
Carmela can’t resist the urge to investigate the growing mystery, but as the list of suspects increases, she realizes it’ll take every trick in the book to unmask the killer thief before there’s another night of murderous mischief…

I enjoy reading cozies from various themes (food, pets, books, etc.), but there is something extra special with it has a Halloween theme. GOSSAMER GHOST is set in New Orleans during Halloween with a cool mystery to be solved! Sounds like a book I will enjoy reading.

I love looking in antique shops but would hate to find a body in a curio cabinet. Always curious how they think up these ideas. And, I like to see how they get solved as I read the books, too.

The cover art all by itself is very inviting! Walking in to that grisly find might be a bit more of an opener shock that I was ready for, but watching Carmela find the bad guy will be better than the shock, I'm certain! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com

Mama Cat said...

There is all manner of tea references and information on the web site for those who like to drink it as well as read about the tea shop. Also that she will have four series ongoing as of 2016, a lot of writing going on - impressive! jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com
