Book Description

Newly revised and expanded! On a sweltering day, ace scrapbooker Kiki Lowenstein has to cancel a crafting party when she discovers Marla Lever, their hostess, nearly dead of the heat. Not only is Marla seriously "under the weather," she's also a hoarder, and her home is a house of horrors, complete with a corpse in the cooler. Meanwhile, Detective Chad Detweiler works a cold case that involves women disappearing all over St. Louis. The attraction between Kiki and Detweiler heats to a red-hot fever pitch, but will it boil over and leave both of them feeling burned?
Includes three recipes: Frito Pie casserole, lemon curd cupcakes, and iced pumpkin cookies. Kiki Lowenstein shares her great craft projects: Scrapbook Journaling with Print Media, Best Pet Album Ideas: Fun, Cheap and Fast Album Ideas: and Advice for Using Zentangle Inspired Designs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ewwwwww! September 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of the Kiki Lowenstein books and short stories and enjoyed all but this one. It is simply too, too gross.

Besides having holes in the plot big enough to drive a cop car through, the descriptions of the house (dead cats, maggots and cat feces) and the murders were unnecessarily revolting and unbelievable. There were loose ends that never got tied up and you could see where it was going.

Not a fun read and not worthy of your time or money. Meow.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Mystery December 15, 2011
By D. Love
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kiki finds out that a friend is a cat hoarder and it gets worse when a body part in found in her freezer. Believing that her friend is not a killer, Kiki searches for clues that will point to the real murderer. This was a good storyline that casts a light on cat hoarders without being preachy. The mystery was quite good and I enjoyed seeing Kiki and her friends in this delightful short story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had never read this book! January 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know how to give a rating of zero, otherwise I would have given it that. I was so disappointed in this book! It was too intense, & gross. It's going to be awhile before I read another book by this author. I have really enjoyed every other book in this series I have read, but I really wish I had never read this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Revisions October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read both the original Ink, Read, Dead and the newly revised version I can honestly say that the revisions that the author made were perfect.

The basic plot of the story remains the same. Kiki and her friend and co-worker Clancy go to set up for a crop party at Marla Lever's house only to find that Marla is a hoarder. Marla not only hoards junk but numerous cats. They also find Marla in her room and that she has suffered a stroke. This is not all that is found in Marla's house. Later that day a dead body is found in Marla's freezer. There is also the matter of the women who have just seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth.

Of course, there is always the relationship between Kiki and hunky Detective Chad Detweiler.

The author addressed hoarding head on. I know that some readers will find hoarding aspect of the book disgusting but this is a real disease. There have been numerous instances of hoarding in the news. Including instances where people have been found dead in stacks of junk.

I won't give up the ending of the book, but if you have read the original version you will love the new and revised edition.

This was another great Kiki Lowenstein mystery.

I love the Kiki Lowenstein series and this book is one of my favorites. Love the new recipes and scrapbook ideas, too! I have an aunt who is a hoarder and the description of how her home looks. Love the Scrap and Craft mysteries and how they progress to the conclusion. They keep me guessing.

I was very disappointed in this book by this author. The plot was very thin and not very creative. Thought I had already read it, it was so borrowed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy December 26, 2013
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not like this book at all, mostly because it is beyond gross! The main character maintains a "carefree" attitude throughout the who process, even while suspecting dark atrocities. Unrealistic (or sadistic, I'm not sure which)

More About the Author

Joanna Campbell Slan started storytelling - and winning awards for her writing - at an early age. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, Joanna grew up in Vincennes, Indiana, and graduated cum laude from Ball State University (Muncie, Indiana) where she majored in journalism. Today she's the author of eleven non-fiction books, a mystery series featuring Kiki Lowenstein, a spunky single mom who loves to scrapbook, and a new series featuring Charlotte Brontë's classic heroine Jane Eyre as an amateur sleuth. Joanna's first novel--Paper, Scissors, Death--was a 2009 Agatha Award finalist. The Kiki Lowenstein series has been praised by the Library Journal as "topically relevant and chock-full of side stories." Publisher's Weekly calls them, "a cut above the usual craft-themed cozy."
RT Book Review has said that Kiki Lowenstein is that she is "our best friend, our next-door neighbor and ourselves with just a touch of the outrageous." Once you've met Joanna, you can guess where the outrageous comes from. Ready, Scrap, Shoot, the fifth book in the Kiki Lowenstein series, has just been released along with short stories featuring Kiki. A sixth book in that popular series has been scheduled. In addition, Joanna is writing a new historical mystery series featuring Jane Eyre as an amateur sleuth. Death of a Schoolgirl (August 2012/ Berkley) marks the first entry in The Jane Eyre Chronicles. In her ongoing quest to never see snow again, Joanna lives with her two dogs and her husband on a nearly deserted island--Jupiter Island, Florida.
