    Carmela Bertrand, owner of Memory Mine, a scrapbooking shop in New Orleans, investigates after she finds her good friend Devon Dowling murdered in his antiques store. Against the wishes of Carmela's fiancé, New Orleans police detective Edgar Babcock, Carmela, along with her best friend, Ava, identifies and questions suspects and pursues clues. Their investigation leads them into crashing a lavish party, going to a cemetery late at night, finding a second murder victim, driving through the bayou, and racing back to the city in time to catch a killer. Complicating matters, a former boyfriend draws a reluctant Carmela into his wine-bar business, further angering Babcock. While Carmela is an engaging character, conflicted about her upcoming marriage, she takes unbelievable risks by refusing to give vital information to Babcock. Framed by the sights, sounds, and food of New Orleans during Jazz Fest, and details about scrapbooking and crafts, this cozy will appeal to fans of Carolyn Haines' Sarah Booth Delaney series, also set in the Deep South.
