Scrapbook of Secrets by Mollie Cox Bryan

"Having traded in her career as a successful investigative journalist for the life of a stay-at-home mom in picturesque Cumberland Creek, Virginia, Annie can't help but feel that something's missing. But she finds solace in a local "crop circle" of scrapbookers united by chore-shy husbands, demanding children, and occasional fantasies of their former single lives. And when the quiet idyll of their small town is shattered by a young mother's suicide, they band together to find out what went wrong.  .  .
Annie resurrects her reporting skills and discovers that Maggie Rae was a closet scrapbooker who left behind more than a few secrets--and perhaps a few enemies. As they sift through Maggie Rae's mysteriously discarded scrapbooks, Annie and her "crop" sisters begin to suspect that her suicide may have been murder. It seems that something sinister is lurking beneath the town's beguilingly calm fa├žade--like a killer with unfinished business. (chapters.ca)


Review:

I borrowed this book from the library because I love scrapbooking and I think it’s pretty obvious that I love cozy mysteries. So what better book than one that combines those two loves? Unfortunately, this one was a miss. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t grip me. The characters were fine enough and it was a group of scrapbookers who were working on solving the mystery, I just didn’t feel a connection to them. This is not a series that I will be continuing with, but that doesn’t mean that you should not read it or tell someone who is a cozy mystery freak like me to give it a try!

Happy Reading!
