Third Book in the Series ISBN-10: 0425240258 ISBN-13: 978-0425240250 RELEASE DATE: March 1, 2011 It's Autumn in New England and Morse Point has colors bursting out all over which draws the tourists to the little town. The problem is the colors are not just bursting on the leaves on the trees, some of the wonderful people of Morse Point are showing their true colors as well. Brenna is helping out a friend by acting as tour guide to a small group touring around Morse Point Lake. One of the tourists thinks he spots a bird not native to the area, but upon closer investigation Brenna finds it is not a bird at all, but a hand sticking up out of a pile of leaves. Yes, another body in Morse Point, but this one has absolutely nothing to do with Brenna. No, but after the body is identified as the business partner of her best friend's father, Brenna finds herself stuck right in the middle of another sticky situation. I LOVED IT!!!!! This author has a writing style that just draws you in and doesn't let go. I enjoyed each one better than the last. The characters develop more in each story as do their relationships to each other and the quaint little town. We also learn the past histories of the main characters in little snippets until the author trusts both us and the characters more and more. Lucy Lawrence has created the perfect tempo to each of these stories, a nice relaxed pace as each plot evolves with impeccable timing. I haven't decoupaged anything in years so don't let the crafty side to these mysteries turn you away. In fact, after reading them it has rekindled my crafty side just a little bit. These are well written, wonderfully created cozy mysteries and if that a genre you favor you may find yourself glued to these books from start to finish.

I enjoyed revisiting the lives of Brenna Miller and her best friend Tenley Morse. The fall setting sounds gorgeous, between the leaf walking tours and fall decoupage ideas! Morse Point is the site of another murder and this time, Tenley's estranged family is at the top of the suspect list. Brenna does what any best friend would do, and helps investigate. This is the third decoupage mystery. I really enjoy the town Lawrence has created and her secondary characters, especially the twins, Marie and Ella, are inspired. I hope to read more by Lawrence and would love to visit Morse Point at least one more time!

"Sealed With a Kill" is the third in Lucy Lawrence's Decoupage mysteries. Normally, I'm not drawn to "craft" mysteries, but when I saw the book was set in New England-my home base-I decided to give it a try. And I'm so glad I did. Likeable heroine Brenna Miller is a whiz at all sorts of craft projects, like creating a special decoupage pumpkin for Halloween or a decoupage tray decorated with the autumn leaves that are falling all over her home town of Morse Point. That's why she loves her job at Vintage Papers, owned by her very best friend, Tenley Morse. Yup.the town is named after Tenley's illustrious family. When Brenna gets stuck as the tour guide for a group of leaf peeper tourists, she tries to make the best of it. But it's hard to stay enthusiastic when their jaunt in the local woods to gather leaves for a craft project leads the group straight to a dead body. It turns out the victim was the business partner of Tenley's autocratic father, and rumors begin to fly that there was no love lost between the two. Tenley turns to Brenna for help in clearing her dad, despite the fact that, well, let's just say the Morse family isn't exactly a close one. As if this isn't enough for Brenna to deal with, she also finds herself attracted to two completely different men at the same time. Sheesh. What's a girl to do? Morse Point is populated with a slew of likeable characters. Among my favorites are elderly sisters Ella and Marie Porter, who constantly compete with each other to see who can turn up the juiciest piece of gossip. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Morse Point. Check out this book, and you will be too! Reviewed by Susan Santangelo, author of" Moving Can Be Murder" for Suspense Magazine
