Scrapbook Novel: “Designed to Death” Now Available … and Part One in the Series on Sale!

Send to Kindle

I love to read scrapbook novels, don’t you? This summer, I was lucky enough to get an Advanced Reader Copy of a new scrapbook mystery novel; I talked about it HERE.

Well, it’s book release time!! “DESIGNED TO DEATH” by Christina Freeburn is available as of today 09-10-13.

ETA: Originally I couldn’t find “Designed to Death” for Kindle so I asked the author about it and she had great news – it’s available today for Kindle too! Amazon wasn’t linking it to the hard copy for some reason. But never fear, YOU CAN GET IT HERE! For only $2.99.

From Amazon:

SMALL TOWN INTRIGUE, TWISTS & TURNS, AND PLENTY OF HEART…
“Faith Hunter planned the perfect event at her grandmother’s shop, Scrap This, featuring local scrapbooker and Life Artist Diva, Belinda Watson. But the extravaganza goes up in a cloud of glitter when Belinda and her cousin, Darlene, brawl over scraplifted designs. Faith attempts to break it up, but only makes things worse. Then when Belinda turns up dead behind the Scrap This store, Faith’s involvement goes viral.

As accusations against her turn vicious, Faith sets out to prove her nemesis, Darlene, committed the crime, only to realize they are both innocent. Now they must team up or the murderer’s plan will come together seamlessly with the frenemies sharing a jail cell or worse, a funeral.

“Designed to Death” is book 2 in the Faith Hunter “Scrap This” mystery series. To make this day even better, book 1 in the series – “CROPPED TO DEATH” is on sale for Kindle right now, only 99 cents! I asked the author how long “Cropped to Death” will sell for 99 cents and she said through 09-16-13. So don’t hesitate . . . go grab it right now before you forget!

Here’s my quick review:
I love reading series. “Designed to Death” picks up picks up right where “Cropped to Death” left off. The setting and many of the characters remain the same. I like that continuity and didn’t feel I had to spend any time getting to know these people because I was already comfortable with them.

There’s another murder and the main character, Faith, seeks to solve it in her usual saucy, sarcastic style {hmm … wonder why I relate to her so much?}. The romance also continues and in this book, Faith makes a choice between her two suitors. {I have to admit I was disappointed in her choice, lol}. The story is again filled with scrapbooking references that the scrapbook obsessed will appreciate and identify with. She takes the term “a new use for washi” to new heights!

One thing that cracked me up about this book is the role that a scrapbook message board plays. I’m a very active member of the TWO PEAS in a BUCKET message board (among others) and I think the author Christina must be there a lot, too! She has scrapbook message board behavior down to a T! If for nothing else, you have to read this book to LOL about scrapbooking MB’s being outed. Tooooo funny! Loved it.

Christina also wanted me to tell you that she’s working on Book 3 in this series – “Embellished to Death” – and it’s scheduled for release at the end of April 2014. Woot!

Make sure to read BOOK 1 and BOOK 2 in the Faith Hunter “Scrap This!” mystery series in the meantime so you’re ready for Book 3 in the spring!

Happy reading :)
