Postcards from the Dead - Laura Childs

Postcards from the Dead

by Laura Childs

New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs offers up Postcards from the Dead, the 10th installment in her Scrapbook Mystery series.  This “Queen of the Cozy” knows how to pour on the suspense!

Murder, Madness, and Mardi Gras . . .

Amid gigantic floats, colorful beads, and dizzying lights, Kimber Breeze, a prominent New Orleans anchorwoman, is strangled and hung from the balcony of the Hotel Tremain.  Scrapbooking maven Carmela Bertrand was supposed to be the woman’s next big interview, but now she’s up to her eyeballs in murder!  And Carmela can’t seem to escape more strange goings-on, because someone is sending cemetery-inspired postcards to her – signed by the very dead Kimber!

A cross between a cozy and a thriller – a thrillzy! – Postcards from the Dead delivers quirky characters, lots of action, humor, and scrapbooking tips.  As an extra bonus, there are New Orleans recipes such as Chicken Jambalaya, Sweet Potato Biscuits, and Cajun Meatloaf.  If you’re looking for a delicious Halloween read this is it!


Laura Childs is the author of the Scrapbook Mysteries, Tea Shop Mysteries and Cackleberry Club Mysteries.  Her books have been named to the USA Today and New York Times Bestseller Lists, and have been featured selections in the Literary Guild’s Mystery Book Club.  She is a former Cleo Award-winning ad writer and CEO of Mission Critical Marketing.
