Carmela has done it again get herself into trouble while helping a good friend with her murdered fiance'. The 3rd book had some slow spots, but picked up and you did not want to put it down. We learn more about Carmela and how she feels about Shamus and what happens to them. I will be looking for the 4th book to read.

This is the third book in this series for Laura Childs and again I felt very let down by the way that she just seems to make up a solution at the end. There were never enough clues to help the reader solve the mystery for themselves or along with Carmela. It just seemed to fall into fer lap without any real detection performed. I'm not sure that I will continue to read this series, it definitely will not be a priority.

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.

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.

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
