Cut, Crop & Die

Title: Cut, Crop & Die

Author: Joanna Campbell Slan

Publisher: Midnight Ink

Series: Kiki Lowenstein Scrap-N-Craft Mystery, Bk 2

ISBN: 9780738712512

Pages: 316 (includes tips and techniques throughout)

Obtained: Library copy


Kiki has mostly settled into her position at the scrapping store, Time in a Bottle.  And now they have a chance to shine by hosting at a crop party.  Except someone is murdered and nothing turns out as planned.  So she decides to do some sleuthing - all in the name of helping her place of employment and friends, of course - and find out who's responsible.

But in the meantime, she isn't quite done learning about herself - with adventures including dealing with a daughter starting in the dreaded teen stage, a grueling spa treatment, and multiple potential relationship opportunities.  While the first book ended in a suspense cliffhanger, this one ends in a relationship cliffhanger.  That's not to say the overall mystery isn't solved.  It is, and by the person I suspected as well!

Kiki's a pretty likable character (though much more naive at times than I can possibly think realistic), and I'm enjoying this series.  I have the third book, Photo, Snap, Shot waiting for me at the library so I can start it soon.
