Description:

An exploding Mardi Gras float has got to be the strangest murder weapon scrappy sleuth Carmela Bertrand has ever encountered in this latest Scrapbooking Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author. 

It's Mardi Gras in New Orleans and scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand is excited to be attending the Pluvius Parade along with her best friend Ava. Carmela's ex-husband Shamus rides by the duo on his float at the head of the parade, when suddenly the revelry turns to disaster. Shamus' float crashes and explodes, and although Shamus escapes unhurt, a member of his krewe is killed.

Carmela and Ava plunge into an investigation of the krewe-member's death, but as they dig deeper it starts to look less like an accident and more like a murder....and Shamus seems less like a victim, and more like a suspect.

My Thoughts:

While Ava and Carmela are enjoying the Mardi Gras float the one carrying Carmela's ex-husband and his krewe explodes and sends the men flying and one of the men dies.  The krewe's captain Hughes Wilder winds up really dead and Carmela's ex Shamus is on the hook for the murder and begs Carmela to help him.  Carmela can't help herself and the more she investigates the more she begins to wonder if someone else had more to gain by killing Hughes.  Hughes has ticked off a lot of people with bad investments of their money.  Then there is Hughes wife who is stepping out with another man could that be who killed Hughes?  There are definitely no shortage of possibilities as to who wanted him dead!  Who could have planted the bomb and why?

I love this series it's so entertaining mixing in New Orleans and mystery.  As you read it you can't help feel like your a bestie of Eva and Carmela's and walking around with them trying to get to the bottom of the crime.  The girls writing this book have such a great flare for mystery telling.  Such fun!  It kept me reading until the end!
