EMBELLISHED TO DEATH by Christina Freeburn (Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery, #3)
“A delightful mystery no person who loves crafts should miss. A little town, a little romance, a little intrigue and a little murder. Join heroine Faith and find out exactly who is doing the embellishing—the kind that doesn't involve scrapbooking.” – Leann Sweeney, Author of the New York Times Bestselling Cats in Trouble Mysteries
When Faith Hunter agrees to help PI Bob Roget find an identity thief at a local scrapbook retreat, her friendly croppers’ weekend quickly morphs into a dangerous one. As croppers share their own memories, a killer collects them for her new identity, and doesn’t appreciate Faith in the picture.
Faith struggles to balance her professional, detecting and personal lives as threats and secrets keep her off-balance. Things turn deadly when a woman is killed and Faith is blackmailed. Truth and lies collide when Faith discovers croppers aren’t the only ones embellishing, and the results might end her life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery series brings together Christina Freeburn's love of mysteries, scrapbooking, and West Virginia. When not writing or reading, she can be found in her scrapbook room or at a crop. Alas, none of the real-life crops have had a sexy male prosecutor or a handsome police officer attending.
Christina served in the JAG Corps of the US Army and also worked as a paralegal, librarian, and church secretary. She lives in West Virginia with her husband, children, a dog, and a rarely seen cat except by those who are afraid or allergic to felines.
My review: Embellished to Death by Christina Freeburn
Embellished to death was good. I was guessing all over the place on whom to trust. Had some twists I did not see coming. I really like Faith and her Grandmas. Though the Grandmas just had a cameo in this book. Most of the other characters were back.
Faith and Steve were going to a scrapbook retreat. Her Grandma's store Scrap This was the major vendor. They were pulling a trailer with supplies in it. When Detective Ted called up asking why she abandoned a car on the road. Bob his brother found car off freeway with papers with her name on them.
Faith was almost run over in the parking lot, but Steve got her out of the path but knocked out himself, then another lady was run over twice before the car disappeared.
Faith has secrets about her past. She moved back home to West Virginia to be close to her grandmas and help in their store. She likes Steve her neighbor.
Steve is a prosecutor in Eden, West VA. He has liked Faith since the first time he met her. Her Grandmas like him too.
Bob Roget is a PI he is looking for a Identity thief he has tracked to the retreat. He asks Faith to help him and his boyfriend Garrison get into find her. Ted is his brother.
Ted Roget is police detective in Eden. He knows Faith's secrets. He also tries to keep her from doing his job. He comes to the retreat when Faith texts him about his brother being in trouble. He likes Faith and had competed with Steve in the past.
Lots of drama, surprises, scrapbooking, mysteries, murder all surround a weekend Scrapbooking retreat. It keeps you guessing.
I have like all three books in this series and plan to keep reading Faith Hunter Scrap This Mysteries.
I was given this ebook by Net Galley and Henery Press. In return agreed to give honest review of Embellished to Death.
