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.

~Rantin’ Ravin’ and Reading
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.
~Griperang’s Bookmarks
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 …

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…

Here is my review of this book:
This was such a great book! What better way to start the Christmas rush than with a ten days of nothing but scrap booking and friends. Well that is what Sheila thought when she won the trip and invited her friends Vera and Paige to join her.When Sheila is out for a morning run and trips over a dead body it puts a crimp in her vacation and a race to find out who the killer is before they strike again. 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.
