When Faith Hunter agrees to help PI Bob Roget find an identity thief at a local scrapbook retreat, her friendly croppers’ weekend quickly morphs into a dangerous one. As croppers share their own memories, a killer collects them for her new identity, and doesn’t appreciate Faith in the picture. Faith struggles to balance her professional, detecting and personal lives as threats and secrets keep her off-balance. Things turn deadly when a woman is killed and Faith is blackmailed. Truth and lies collide when Faith discovers croppers aren’t the only ones embellishing, and the results might end her life.
Embellished to Death by Christina Freebrun is the third book in the Faith Hunter Scrap This mystery series. It was a fast-paced, fun cozy read for me. Even though I have not read the earlier books in the series, I did enjoy this one. Though I do feel I would have enjoyed the story even more if I had read the others prior to reading this one. That would allow me to have more of an idea of character and plot connections. That being said, this was still an interesting cozy mystery. I really liked the scrapbooking retreat setting. I scrapbook and make cards, so it was fun for me to read a mystery in this setting. I live right on the West Virginia border, so I could relate to that setting as well. I would definitely read other books in this series.
