“I can always look forward to reading a new Laura Childs book. She never disappoints!”
~ Under the Covers

One of my favorite Mystery authors, Laura Childs, has released a new book in the Scrapbooking Mystery series and I couldn’t be more excited about it! GLTITER BOMB is the fifteenth book in the series and it’s definitely one of my favorites!

First things first, I have to talk about my love for this series. This particular one is probably my favorite of her series. I have read and enjoyed her other ones, but there’s something about this style of writing paired with the New Orleans setting that I love. It just works. I was never even into scrapbooking before I started reading this series, but now I’m definitely finding the allure.

This book has a very interesting mystery involving Mardi Gras, glitter and Carmela’s ex-husband, Shamus. You’ll find that a lot of Cozy Mystery series have the heroine’s exs involved and as a romance reader, I find this fascinating. Usually in the books I read, the ex is the bad guy, or someone that isn’t mentioned in a positive light. So I really like that with Mysteries, they become key players. The dynamic between Shamus and Carmela isn’t always fun or bright, but it does add something to the book. Like I said, I really enjoy seeing them talk to each other and I felt like having Shamus involved really made the mystery that much more interesting.

In addition to that, I really adore the friendship between Carmela and Ava. They are just so fun to read about and I love that you get to see different sides to Carmela’s character. It just makes this series so much fun.

As you can see, I really enjoyed this book. I think if you’re in the mood for a fun and bright Cozy Mystery series, then Laura Childs is an excellent choice. I can always look forward to reading a new Laura Childs book. She never disappoints!
