Looking for a craft cozy so memorable you’ll stay up late scrapping about it? Well, welcome to the town of Eden.

Faith Hunter, who is supposed to be planning her wedding, instead finds herself distracted by the town scrapbook she was commissioned to create. Eden’s oldest mystery, the founding family’s exodus nearly a hundred years ago, remains unsolved.

A search through the family’s abandoned mansion leads to the uncovering of bones on that very property. And then ex-boyfriend Steve Davis announces a surprise heir has staked a claim.

How can Faith not be distracted? Now she’s determined to dig up the truth left behind.

Because scrappers are multi-taskers extraordinaire, Faith can’t say no when family friend Wyatt Buford asks her to look into his deadbeat father’s disappearing act and his connection to the murder.

Her quest for answers unearths secrets past and present that some would prefer stay buried at any cost. Faith’s resolve to present the facts and nothing but about Eden’s history could lead to her own future being cut short.

See what I mean about memorable? Delve in to Eden and you’ll find a cozy you won’t soon forget.

 What I Thought:

I always enjoy reading this series as it is set in my home state, West Virginia.  I really like the characters Faith, she is very tenacious when she wants to find something out.  In this one, she is asked to create a town scrapbook.  While doing this, she starts investigating why the town's founding family hightailed it out of town all those years ago, and when doing research at their abandoned mansion, the remains of a dead body are found.  On top of these mysteries, Faith is also planning her wedding.  This was a well written book with a great plot that kept me turning pages.  This is a series that, to me, never gets old.  Can't wait for more in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
