Editorial Reviews

"Bryan's voice is rich with empathy, suspense, and Southern charm." (Ellery Adams, New York Times best-selling author)

Publisher's Summary

Christmas is just around the corner, and the ladies of the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop are thrilled when Sheila wins the first place prize in a scrapbooking design contest: a ten-day scrapbook-themed cruise in the Caribbean. Vera and Paige decide to tag along, which should pose the perfect opportunity to learn some new techniques, mingle with fellow croppers, and get in some rest and relaxation before the chaos of Christmas. But when Sheila finds a famous crafter dead, and investigators determine she was poisoned, the luxury cruise veers toward disaster as Sheila becomes the number one suspect - or was she really the intended victim? Just as the croppers begin un-wrapping the truth, a storm strands them at sea, and they'll find it's harder than ever to survive the holidays with a killer on deck.

Another homerun

I loved not only listening to this book, but the story was great and even made me laugh! this one did not end how I thought, it kept me guessing until the reveal!

Good but not as good as the other books

I am a scrapbooker but have never been on one of these scrapbooking cruises. Wish there was more backdrop on the scrapbooking portion of the cruise but, as with the other books in the series, scrapbooking is only a backdrop but even less so in this book. Still love these likeable, crafty ladies. I'm enjoying seeing how these friends grow and change with each book.

A Pleasant Surprise

What made the experience of listening to A Crafty Christmas the most enjoyable?

I love murder mysteries and I enjoy scrapbooking and card making. So, to find a book that combined both was a bonus. There was humor and the writing was realistic. I laughed outloud while I was reading it.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

While the protagonist thought she knew who the murderer was, proving it was something else. The author did a good job putting twists in that made me want to keep reading.

What about Barbara Edelman’s performance did you like?

Her reading was good. She was consistent with the voices, but I would have liked a little more differentiation between some of the characters.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Embellish!

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the book so much, I am looking at the series.
