A CRAFTY CHRISTMAS By Mollie Cox Bryan

BE KIND

A Crafty Christmas

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I now have a new author to read. It is nicely written and the characters well defined.

Sheila is doing her daily run and stumbles over something and hurts herself. It turns out to be a dead body and Sheila is last person to see her. Sheila and friends from Cumberland Creek are on a Scrapbooking Cruise that she won. The story moves between those on the cruise and the town. There are several twists that keep the reader’s attention. There are teasers for the next book. I was at a disadvantage not having read the early books. I will read her again.
