Kiki Lowenstein saves the rainy day

This is a short novella in the Kiki Lowenstein series.  She is a single mom who works in a scrapbooking store in St. Louis.  She has a knack for getting involved with murders.  This particular installment was murder free though.  I am currently trying to  work out which books I have previously read and to go back and read the novellas on my Kindle.  I always enjoy hearing about the scrapbooking projects that are incorporated into the stories.  Two of my favorite things, scrapbooking and mysteries, altogether in 1 place.  Heaven!

Kiki Lowenstein and the Purple PassionKiki Lowenstein and the Purple Passion by Joanna Campbell Slan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fun quick read that lets us catch up with Kiki in between the bigger volumes. Always fun to see the different scrapping projects she comes up with. Nice change to have a cozy that doesn't involve murder, although it does involve a generation appropriate topic. All in all a quick read that was fun to fit in between some more serious novels. This one sets up some interactions for future books that I had previously read.
