Today I am revisiting a series I read a few years ago, by Christina Freeburn - Faith Hunter Scrap This Mysteries. I will start off with book #1 and later in month review the next 2 installments.
Length: 218 pages
Publisher: Henery Press (Nov. 16 2012)
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Former US Army JAG specialist, Faith Hunter, returns to her West Virginia home to work in her grandmothers' scrapbooking store determined to lead an unassuming life after her adventure abroad turned disaster. But her quiet life unravels when her friend is charged with murder – and Faith inadvertently supplied the evidence.
So Faith decides to cut through the scrap and piece together what really happened. With a sexy prosecutor, a determined homicide detective, a handful of sticky suspects and a crop contest gone bad, Faith quickly realizes if she’s not careful, she’ll be the next one cropped.
Christina Freeburn's "CROPPED TO DEATH" is the first Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery and was exactly the kind of book I wanted to read. It was a fun, crafty mystery, being a scrapbooker I enjoyed combining my two interests mysteries and crafting.
The characters are well thought out and the protagonist, Faith Hunter, a former JAG and now current owner of Scrap This, is realistic . There is just the right amount of humour, romance, family dynamics, crafting and of course mystery, to make this a great story. I was kept guessing all through the book. The story drew me in from the beginning and kept me interested right to the end.
I recommend this book to cozy mystery lovers whether you are interested in scrapbooking or not.
Christina Freeburn started jotting down stories on her thirty-minute bus commute to middle school and still hasn't stopped (though the bus commuting has).
The Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery series is a mix of crafty and crime, bringing together Christina's love of mysteries, scrapbooking, and West Virginia.
The New Beginnings series is an inspirational romantic suspense featuring heroines and heroes willing to risk their lives in order to find hope, promise and a future for those struggling in a world that seems set against them.
Christina served in the JAG Corps of the US Army and also worked as a paralegal, librarian, and church secretary. She lives in West Virginia with her husband, children, a dog, and a rarely seen cat except by those who are afraid or allergic to felines.
