READY SCRAP SHOOT
The Scrap-N-Craft mystery series continues with a fast-paced, nail-biting ride through Kiki Lowenstein’s life. Madcap adventures abound and in the midst of the chaos, the main mystery gets overshadowed by several secondary stories. Fortunately, Kiki is so darn entertaining that she’ll keep readers hooked until the explosive shootout at the end.
The annual May Day celebration at the CALA school is interrupted as gunshots ring out and Edwina Fitzgerald is killed and her son is wounded. Authorities believe Kiki may have been the intended target and the shooter is her husband’s killer, Bill Ballard. In order to protect her family, Kiki must uncover the truth behind the shootings. If that weren’t enough, Kiki also has to deal with a visit from her narcissistic mother, her boyfriend’s psychotic ex-wife who has it out for her and a new inflexible business partner at the Scrapbook Shop.
