A Crafty Christmas
by Mollie Cox Bryan
Seriously, it is awesome! I love holiday themed books. As a scrabooker and card maker, this book really appealed to me and I loved reading and experiencing scrapbooking fun with the characters.
I LOVE this series…What I like best about this series is the way Bryan has created a wonderful ensemble of characters. They really fit together as a team.
A CRAFTY CHRISTMAS is a great way to start getting into the holiday spirit and I think you should go right out get it and let the season begin! ♥♥♥♥♥

I enjoy Mollie’s writing style and how she puts twists and turns throughout the entire book. She keeps me guessing all the way to the end.
The mystery starts right from the get go, with Sheila tripping over the dead body of one of the other crafters….it was quite a fun read.
~A Chick Who Reads
I truly enjoyed this book. The characters continue to be their wonderful, unique, quirky selves. The location of a scrapbooking cruise was great …

Mollie Cox Bryan has done it again, Her characters are likeable and the story keeps you reading until the end. I couldn’t put this book down.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Author Molly Cox Bryan combines the holiday season and a luxury cruise for the perfect setting in the latest installment in her scrapbooking series. She mixes in a murder mystery, suspense and a dose of humor for a fun-filled adventure you can’t resist.
~Thoughts in Progress
This story had a surprise ending for me. It seemed a bit deeper than the usual cozy. The mystery somewhat more twisted.

Nothing makes me happier than reading a cozy mystery set during the Christmas season at any time of the year. I loved every single minute of this action-packed adventure.

A Crafty Christmas
Publisher: Kensington (October 7, 2014)
Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
Christmas is just around the corner, and the ladies of the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop are thrilled when Sheila wins the first place prize in a scrapbooking design contest: a ten-day scrapbook-themed cruise in the Caribbean. Vera and Paige decide to tag along, which should pose the perfect opportunity to learn some new techniques, mingle with fellow croppers, and get in some rest and relaxation before the chaos of Christmas. But when Sheila finds a famous crafter dead, and investigators determine she was poisoned, the luxury cruise veers toward disaster as Sheila becomes the number one suspect – or was she really the intended victim? Just as the croppers begin un-wrapping the truth, a storm strands them at sea, and they’ll find it’s harder than ever to survive the holidays with a killer on deck…
