Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Agatha-finalist Slan's diverting third scrapbooking mystery (after 2009's Cut, Crop & Die), Kiki Lowenstein's 12-year-old daughter, Anya, a student at St. Louis's fancy Charles and Anne Lindbergh Academy, ventures with another girl into the balcony of the school theater, where they stumble on the dead body of an unpopular teacher, Sissy Gilchrist. Hired on the basis of her family's social standing, Sissy was dating a black man—an act that may have given someone motive for murder. Kiki teams again with her crush, the unfortunately married Det. Chad Detweiler, who investigated her husband's still unsolved murder in the first book in the series, Paper, Scissors, Death (2008). Kiki's job at Time in a Bottle, a scrapbooking store, sometimes distracts from the murder investigation, but the subject of racial prejudice makes this a cut above the usual craft-themed cozy. (May)

    A Series that Continues to Please

    Thanks to financial support from her late husband's mother, Kiki Lowenstein's daughter Anya attends the elitist prep school Charles and Anne Lindbergh Academy (CALA). It's the last place one would expect violence to occur, so when Anya discovers the body of her teacher there Kiki goes into full panic mode. The school is eager to cover up any hint of impropriety or scandal, so it's no huge surprise that the woman's African American boyfriend, the basketball coach, is immediately implicated and arrested.

    After being warned repeatedly from interfering in previous murders, Kiki's more than a little surprised when Detective Chad Detweiler actually asks for her help in clearing the coach, who happened to have been a Little Brother Detweiller mentored and believes is a convenient scapegoat.

    This places Kiki in an emotionally precarious position, as Detweiler is the married man she dreams about while two perfectly acceptable other men, one of whom is the man she SHOULD want to love, stand at the sideline. As they say though, the heart wants what the heart wants. However, any rash actions she may contemplate are definitely curtailed by her watchful mother-in-law and friends.

    As Kiki ventures in the rarefied world of the CALA elite, she discovers that the headmaster's wife and four CALA mothers all had past ties that unite them in hiding past secrets. The murdered teacher herself also had a cloudy past despite her recent path to redemption.

    What surprised me so much in this novel was how the chip on Kiki's shoulder that resulted from her insecurities and feelings as an outsider prejudiced her against all of the mother's of CALA. Slowly, as Kiki questions and begins to know more about each woman she understands that each woman is far more complex than she realized in her initial snap judgments. The author fleshes out each woman realistically and empathetically in a way that enables the reader to understand the sacrifices they've made and how they've become who they are..

    Rather tortuously, but realistically, Slan concludes Photo Snap Shot with a cliffhanger that leaves some questions unanswered and definitely has the reader wanting more. The next Kiki Lowenstein mystery can't come soon enough. I love Kiki, a character who has grown stronger in will and character as the series has progressed while never losing her sense of humor. - Cindy Chow
