This is the 15th Scrapbooking Mystery starring Carmela, owner of Memory Mine scrapbooking shop. And of course her side kick, Ava, owner of a VooDoo shop and always dressed to kill or at least stun!
Mardi Gras is in full swing and Carmela and Ava are packed with the other million or so people in town for the season. But as they watch one of the floats carrying Carmela’s ex-husband and all around hound dog, explodes! Mayhem ensues and one of the bodies from the float isn’t getting up ever again.
Shamus begs Carmela to put her investigator hat on and make sure her detective boyfriend isn’t coming after him.
Of course the ladies are jumping in and snooping no matter what. But what if the what is their own demise?
I have read every book the author has put out and this one was the first one I have to say did not remain true to the characters in my opinion. Ava came off as a caricature of herself and even Carmela felt flat.
This was a collaboration with Terrie Farley Moran, whose books I love. For me this book really let me down.
