Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Whether she's writing her elegant tea shop mysteries or her charming scrapbooking series, Laura Childs always crafts a memorable story. Preserving memories beautifully is what scrapbooking is all about. In Bound for Murder, New Orleans scrapbooking shop owner Carmela Bertrand is really enjoying the work she's doing to help create beautiful memories of for two friends who are very much in love. When the groom is stabbed to death at a pre-wedding party, it's only natural to think it's a crime of passion. The usual suspect in such a case is the blushing bride, but lovely young Wren seems truly heartbroken over the death of her beloved, Jamie. To make matters worse, everything Jamie had worked for seems to be coming unglued at once…and Carmela is determined to keep Wren from becoming as much a victim as her lost bridegroom.

While the wedding is unquestionably off, Wren has received one gift she cannot return -- a potentially lethal inheritance from the man she loved. Things soon go from bad to worse. Jaime's partner tries to claim the lion's share of their cutting-edge computer software business; a pushy local collector pressures Wren to sell the contents of her late fiancé's antiquarian bookshop; and the bank threatens to foreclose on the historic home Wren and Jaime had been lovingly restoring. Now it's up to Carmela to sift through the scraps of a life cut short…working against a deadline to save lives instead of merely memories. Sue Stone

    Murder before a wedding

    Carmella Bertrand runs Memory Mine, a scrapbook shop in New Orleans. She's helping Wren Wright decorate for her pre-wedding gala. Wren is Gabby's cousin. Gabby works for Carmella. Jamie Redmond owns a bookstore and is a co-creator with Blaine of Neutron, a software program that detects bugs and bombs in software code. Jamie and Wren are to be married soon. Unfortunately Carmella finds Jamie murdered during the pre-wedding gala. Dunbar DesLauriers begins hounding Wren to sell Jamie's book stock to him for a 'fair price.' Then Glory, Carmella's sister-in-law who threw Carmella out of the family home after her Carmella's husband left, shows up threatening to call in the mortgage on Jamie's home which is now Wren's if she doesn't sell to Dunbar. Blaine begins claiming he now has sole right to Neutron. Wren asks Carmella for help. She gives her business advice about the bookstore as well as helps her look into things. Carmella discovers skeletons in Jamie's past. Could these be why he was killed? I love this series. It's a recent find for me. I can't wait to read more of them! Carmella and the gang at her shop are so much fun. I like the descriptions about the various scrapbook projects even though I never seem to have time for such things. I like how the author makes it seem so natural for Carmella to investigate even though she isn't one. And she does a great job of it. I love the New Orleans setting as well. This is a great cozy mystery series. I highly recommend his book and series.

    Another Disappointment

    The dialogue doesn't flow true. The book reads like the author is lecturing to the readers about New Orleans or scrapbooking. I love to read and read many many different authors. Two of this author's books were more than enough.

    great amateur sleuth

    When her rich husband Seamus Meechum walked out on their marriage because he needed his freedom, his sister Glory kicked Carmella Bertrand out of the family mansion. Instead of moping, she finds an apartment in New Orleans¿ French Quarter and opens Memory Mine, a scrapbooking shop not far from her new abode.--- Carmella helps Wren Wright decorate for the latter¿s pre-wedding gala. Wren is engaged to Jamie Redmond, the owner of a profitable bookstore and creator with his partner Blaine of a software program called Neutron that detects bugs and bombs in newly written software code. When Carmella takes a breather she finds Jamie dead. While Wren tries to cope with her finance¿s murder, Dunbar Des Lauriers pushes hard to buy Jamie¿s stock in the bookstore. Glory, who holds the mortgage to Jamie¿s and Wren¿s home, threatens to call it in if Wren doesn¿t sell to her. Blaine claims to have sole rights to Neutron and Carmella finds proof that Jamie was engaged to another woman a year ago without telling Wren. Overwhelmed, Wren asks Carmella to find her fiancé¿s killer; her inability to refuse places her in danger from a killer without mercy.--- Laura Childs is a creative storyteller who grabs reader attention from the time Jaime is murdered and doesn¿t release it grip until the murderer is found and Carmella is safe. There are numerable suspects with viable motives and readers will have a lot of fun guessing who the real killer is. There are a lot of creative arts and croft tips at the end of the book, a bonus that readers can make use of for the winter holidays. BOUND FOR MURDER raises the bar on amateur sleuth quality.--- Harriet Klausner
