Teaser Tuesday-Scrapbook of Murder by Lois Winston


“Lupe called me at work this afternoon,” I told Zack. We had
escaped after dinner to his apartment. Situated above my detached
garage, it afforded us a spot out of earshot of my mother-in-law
Lucille, whose contempt for Zack grew exponentially with each
passing day. Being permanently saddled with the woman was hard
enough on a good day. Today was not a good day.
Zack finished pouring two glasses of chardonnay and handed
one to me. I wandered over to the sofa and curled up in the corner.
He followed, taking a seat next to me. The seconds ticked by. He
shifted his body to face me. I suppose he was waiting for me to say something further, but my brain had stopped sending signals to
my mouth.

About the book 
Crafts and murder don’t normally go hand-in-hand, but “normal” deserted craft editor Anastasia Pollack’s world nearly a year ago. Now, tripping over dead bodies seems to be the “new normal” for this reluctant amateur sleuth.
When the daughter of a murdered neighbor asks Anastasia to create a family scrapbook from old photographs and memorabilia discovered in a battered suitcase, she agrees—not only out of friendship but also from a sense of guilt over the older woman’s death. However, as Anastasia begins sorting through the contents of the suitcase, she discovers a letter revealing a fifty-year-old secret, one that unearths a long-buried scandal and unleashes a killer. Suddenly Anastasia is back in sleuthing mode as she races to prevent a suitcase full of trouble from leading to more deaths.
