The last thing Carmela Bertrand and her friend Ava expected to bear witness to in St. Tristan's Church was a crime. But now a beloved member of their scrapbooking circle is lying lifeless next to a smashed statue of St. Sebastian--and a mysterious hooded figure has absconded with an antique silver-and-gold crucifix. With the church open to the public and a popular tourist attraction, it looks like the police don't have a prayer of finding the killer. But if anyone can get to the bottom of the crime, it's Carmela's main squeeze. Detective Edgar Babcock--with a little assistance from some scrappy sleuths. As Carmela and Ava are drawn deeper into the New Orleans French Quarter in search of the missing crucifix, they may need the help of more than a few patron saints. Because this is one killer they don't want to cross....--From jacket flap.

Socialites with too much money and too much time and a woman who thinks she is a detective. The crime is not solved ... until the murder tries to kill the lead character... and even then the lead character guesses wrong about the murderers identity.

As I read this book I kept telling myself it would get better-wrong! Especially the ending. It was chopped short as if Childs was only allowed so many words. Plus, she didn't give a good reason why the murderer committed the crime. Childs needs to stick to her "tea mysteries" they are much better. I tried reading another scrapbooking mystery just to be fair but I gave up!

Very much a "scrapbooking" mystery.
