    Fun Sunday or Rainy Day Read!

    Being a Scrapbook designer I found this to be an interesting concept for a book. Thinking it might be a fun little read I wasn't dissapointed and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The characters were fun and quirky, the plot though done before had an unexpected twist to the end, and the history/content about New Orleans and Mardi Gras was a great addition to the storyline. The book reminded me of a nice Miss Marple type mystery . . . no gore, no vampires, no sex scenes. Add to all that the ten pages at the end of the book with Scrapbooking page ideas and the traditional New Orleans receipes were a bonus!
    The book would make a great book club read for a crafty type group. I can see a group holding a little Mardi Gras party night while discussing the book. Possibly using some of the receipes in the book for the party.
    I'll for sure be reading more from this series.

    well-written cozy

    Tucked away on the edge of the French Quarter in New Orleans is a cute little scrapbooking store called Memory Mine owned by Carmela Bertrand, an astute business person but unlucky in love. Her husband Shamus dumped her six months ago, claiming he had to find himself. Carmela moved from their fancy home to a funky apartment located on top of a voodoo store. Carmela and friends are taking in one of the Mardi Gras parades when a float stops in front of them. Powerful Jimmy Early Clayton is dead and an autopsy reveals he died from an overdose of ketamine. Shamus was seen having an argument with him and had access to the float and Jimmy Lee¿s stash of liquor. A vicious rumor campaign starts stating that Shamus is the killer. Although Carmela is estranged from him, she doesn¿t think her husband is a murderer. She sets out to prove it, but places her life in danger from the killer who doesn¿t want Carmela putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Laura Childs, the author of the Teashop mysteries, has written the first book in what looks to be a great new series. The descriptions of the food and sights of New Orleans make the readers feel as if they were visiting and enjoying Mardi Gras. The heroine is plucky and likable, enjoying her crafts store and her many friends instead of pining away for the husband she still loves. KEEPSAKE CRIMES is a well-written cozy with enough possible suspects to prevent the audience from guessing who the killer really is. Harriet Klausner

    A Mystery/Comedy together

    It's an enjoyable light mystery and I will read the next of the series. although as I'm a born and 1/2 century worth New Orleanian, the author should study a N.O. city map. Also check out more about local foods. Otherwhile it's a hoot and a nice read. No masking except on Mardi Gras, the law. Balls are Formal Dress. Happy Mardi Gras !

    Waste of my time.

    Had this not been the choice of my bookclub I would have never picked this up and not that I've paid for it -- YUK.

    Gotta Read Books

    Ends too soon. One thing about just reading this series-already hooked on Tea Shoppe, arent you?- Well done. Gets you really interested in Carmela. Will she reconcile with Shamus? or keep boogying with Ava? Lucky me, now I can get #2 and 3 and keep on reading. Pick this up. YOU will enjoy it :)
