Embellished to Death
by Christina Freeburn

Freeburn’s characters are just like the women–both family and friends–that I scrap with, some closely-bonded, others bickering, but all women and friends at heart.
…a great cozy mystery series. Do yourself a favor and start reading it if you haven’t! If you like crafting, scrapbooking, cardmaking, reading, great characters, and cozy mysteries . . . I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!!

I liked this book because first, it was set in my home state of West Virginia, and second it kept me on the edge of my seat.
~Melina’s Book Blog
This book was good and quick, the story pulls you in and has you wondering who committed this horrible crime and why?
~Community Bookstop
I really liked the scrapbooking retreat setting. I scrapbook and make cards, so it was fun for me to read a mystery in this setting. I live right on the West Virginia border, so I could relate to that setting as well.

I read the first two books in this wonderful series and it has almost gotten me to start scrapbooking, the only craft I don’t do! In this outing, Faith Hunter is after an identity thief, hiding a secret of her own, getting blackmailed, and so much more in this fast paced mystery. You will be breathless! This is another ♥♥♥♥♥
~Rantin’ Ravin and Reading
Everyone has secrets, and for some reason we love reading about the secrets of others…just not our own. Ms. Freeburn does an excellent job of revealing the right mix of secrets at the right time so that we are able to follow and it enhances the reading experience.

When Faith Hunter agrees to help PI Bob Roget find an identity thief at a local scrapbook retreat, her friendly croppers’ weekend quickly morphs into a dangerous one. As croppers share their own memories, a killer collects them for her new identity, and doesn’t appreciate Faith in the picture. Faith struggles to balance her professional, detecting and personal lives as threats and secrets keep her off-balance. Things turn deadly when a woman is killed and Faith is blackmailed. Truth and lies collide when Faith discovers croppers aren’t the only ones embellishing, and the results might end her life.

my review:
This is  a great installment to this series. The characters are fun and the story will keep you reading all night! Faith Hunter wants nothing more than to keep her life in check and she is doing all she can to see that happen, But when a murder takes place it sends thing in a new direction and a lot more is being scrapped than meets the eye.  This brilliant whodunit will instantly captivate you!
