about this item
In the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Gossamer Ghost, scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand investigates a murder in New Orleans’ legendary Lafayette Cemetery…Enjoying dinner at Commander’s Palace with her beau, Detective Edgar Babcock, Carmela finds the food and the company equally divine—with the exception of Isabelle Black stopping by to brag about her upcoming wedding. Leaving the restaurant, the couple is interrupted once again—this time by a terrifying scream from inside the cemetery. Rushing to investigate, Carmela and Edgar find Isabelle lying across an aboveground tomb, strangled with a piece of vintage lace. Carmela would rather leave the case to Edgar, but she can’t say no to Isabelle’s sister, Ellie, the tarot card reader at Juju Voodoo. As she untangles the enemies of Isabelle’s past, Carmela hopes she can draw out the killer before someone else gets cold feet.“Scrapbook aficionados rejoice! Ms. Childs creates a charming mystery series with lively, quirky characters, and plenty of how-to.”—Fresh FictionSCRAPBOOKING TIPS INCLUDED!
