From Laura Childs, author of the popular Tea Shop Mysteries, comes scrapbooking-shop owner Carmela Bertrand, who delights her customers with the sophisticated looks she achieves with their scrapbooks. But when her artistic tribute to a murdered man points the way toward his killer, Carmela's creative streak may be cut short...

In the terrible wake of Hurricane Katrina, scrapbooking shop owner Carmela Bertrand has her hands full getting Memory Mine back in business- and her relationship with her ex-husband, Shamus, back on its feet. But the reconciliation is shattered when Shamus is kidnapped from their home. And when Carmela hurries to tell Shamus's Uncle Henry, she finds him sitting in his library-with a bullet through his forehead. As a memorial to Uncle Henry, Carmela puts together a sentimental scrapbook of memories and keepsakes. What she doesn't realize is that her book holds a clue that could identify the fiend behind the kidnapping and killing. And when the murderer finds out that she may be on to him, he's going to try to close the book on Carmela once and for all.
