Scrapbook of the Dead
by Mollie Cox Bryan
This series just keeps getting better and better with every book, and SCRAPBOOK OF THE DEAD is the cream of the *crop.
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
The Cumberland Creek Mysteries are one of my favorite cozy series. Scrapbook of the Dead by Mollie Cox Bryan is her best book yet!
…one of those books I read in one sitting–I just couldn’t put it down!
I had such fun sleuthing with this gang again. The characters ages ranged from young to senior and they kept me laughing and flipping pages to find out who the surprise villain was.

Ms. Bryan grabs the readers attention from page one and doesn’t let go until the end. Not only does she craft an engaging mystery, but she has created wonderful characters with great depth.
I like how there are a group of friends trying to solve the mystery. Having more than one perspective of a murder is refreshing instead of just seeing how one person perceives the murder.

The mystery is good, plenty of drama…
Ms. Bryan does not shy away from potentially controversial subjects either, which also earns points with me because I live in a small town and I know how that can go.
… fun and engaging read, it’s one of those books you pick up and read in one sitting. The plot is compelling, the characters are warm and likeable, the ending to the story truly surprised me and did not see coming.
This was a book I couldn’t put down!

Scrapbook of the Dead
(A Cumberland Creek Mystery) (Book 5)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Kensington (September 29, 2015)
Halloween means spooky scrapbooks for the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop, but what’s been happening around town is truly frightening. First a dead woman is found in the freezer at Pamela’s Pie Palace, and the next day a second woman is found murdered by the river. Reporter Annie Chamovitz learns the victims were sisters and is certain their deaths are linked. Most bizarre of all, both women were found clutching scrapbook pages.
As their Saturday night crop quickly becomes an opportunity to puzzle out the murders, the ladies begin to wonder if Pamela is hiding more than her secret recipes for delicious pies–or if the crimes are related to the startling discovery that there are gangs in Cumberland Creek. As All Hallows Eve approaches, the crafty croppers must cut and paste the clues to unmask a deadly killer.
Includes tips and a glossary of terms for the modern scrapbooker!
In addition to the Cumberland Creek mystery series, Mollie Cox Bryan wrote the regional bestseller Mrs. Rowe’s Little Book of Southern Pies and Mrs. Rowe’s Restaurant Cookbook: A Lifetime of Recipes from the Shenandoah Valley . An award-winning journalist and poet, she currently blogs, cooks, and scrapbooks in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with her husband and two daughters. Scrapbook of Secrets was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Novel.
