Book Review

The reason I picked up this book was because it had a foodie plot,that I thought would be a fun read. It was more than fun, the writing was hilarous, from the first chapter and I knew I would enjoy Crepe Factor.

Carmela Bertrand runs Memory Mine, A Scrapbooking Shop and her best friend, Ava are quite the pair, they so remind me of Tricia and Angelica from Lorna Barrett's Booktown mysteries, I loved them. The Winter Market has come to the French Quarter in New Orleans.

Among the vendors at the Market there were food vendors. Martin Lash writes on a food website called "Glutton for Punishment" Carmela and Ava among the crowd as they observe him gasping for air and lurching wildly with a huge serving fork protruding from him when he landed on the pavement heading for them, Splat !!!

Quigg is a restauranteur who once dated Carmela  got into a arguement with Lash moments before his death and he instantly becomes a suspect when Detective Babcock who is currently dating Carmella is clearly jealous and wants to lock him up and throw away the key but when Quigg asks Carmella for help to investigate she can't say now and with another murder Carmella may need Babcocks help after all.

Comical Characters made me a instant fan of the Scrapbooking Mysteries. I loved the drama between Babcock, Quigg and Carmella. Carmella was a relateable character and so reminded me of what I would do if I were in her romantic situation. I will surely be reading another book in this fast pased murder mystery.

  9. The setting is wonderful. I was very young during the 1950's when my interest in creating scrapbooks began. They were completely different from the modern type but enjoyable for me. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com
