Chamovitz has finished the book she wrote about the murder
of Maggie Rae. She is awakened by a phone call from Detective
Bryant. The call is about a body found in the Cumberland Creek
River. Since Annie is a freelancer for the Washington Herald,
she gets up and heads to the crime scene. While there is a
dead body, Detective Bryant did not call Annie. Annie sees
that the body has strange markings on it. Soon a second murder
has occurred. Both are young, redheaded girls from Jenkins
Hollow and with the same markings on their bodies.
Life goes on and the scrapbooking friends are busy with their
lives. That is until one of their own is arrested on suspicion
of murder! Can Annie and her scrapbooking friends find the
real murderer or will one of them get pasted?
Things to ponder: Who really called Annie to the crime scene?
What is wrong with Annie? Who painted the rune on Beatrice’s
house? Does it have anything to do with the rune earring worn
by Luther Vandergrift?
Mollie Cox Bryan gets better with every book she writes in
the Cumberland Creek Mystery Series. This second book in the
series is every bit as good as Scrapbook of Secrets ,
maybe even better. I like that different characters move the
story along. We get to find out how complex these people really
are. It is a riveting mystery that made me read it in one
day. I love this series and can’t wait to read the next
one. So Mollie – please write fast as I can’t
