New Orleans is in the throes of another fantastic Mardi Gras celebration when the party gets crashed by a murderer…
Kimber Breeze of KBEZ-TV is broadcasting live from a hotel balcony in the French Quarter, interviewing locals and capturing the spectacle in the streets. But as Carmela Bertrand, owner of Memory Mine scrapbooking shop, waits to be interviewed next, someone sneaks onto the balcony and strangles Kimber with a cord, leaving her body dangling above the parade.
Soon after the murder, Carmela begins receiving strange postcards at her shop—signed by the late reporter. Now she and her friend Ava must risk their own necks to find out who’s posing as a ghost and expose a killer…

At the start of Childs s flat 10th Scrapbooking mystery set in New Orleans (after 2011 s Skeleton Letters), craft store owner Carmela Bertrand is waiting to be interviewed by Kimber Breeze, the perky, Botoxed reporter from KBEZ-TV who s covering Mardi Gras from the wrought-iron balcony of her French Quarter hotel. Suddenly, Kimber disappears from the TV cameras. Carmela rushes onto the balcony, where she finds a thick cord tied to the railing and Kimber s lifeless body dangling ten feet below. Carmela once again turns sleuth, encouraged by best friend Ava Gruiex, though Carmela s love interest, Det. Edgar Babcock, attempts to discourage her, especially after he learns she s receiving mysterious postcards purportedly from Kimber. Only devoted series fans are likely to struggle through the less-than-compelling prose, as Carmela jumps to conclusions while recklessly disregarding her own safety as well as her boyfriend s professional concerns.
