Socialites with too much money and too much time and a woman who thinks she is a detective. The crime is not solved ... until the murder tries to kill the lead character... and even then the lead character guesses wrong about the murderers identity.

As I read this book I kept telling myself it would get better-wrong! Especially the ending. It was chopped short as if Childs was only allowed so many words. Plus, she didn't give a good reason why the murderer committed the crime. Childs needs to stick to her "tea mysteries" they are much better. I tried reading another scrapbooking mystery just to be fair but I gave up!

Very much a "scrapbooking" mystery.
