“This is an okay book in an okay series. While Brenna Miller is conducting a "leaf peepers" group through the woods of Morse Point, they discover a dead body beneath the leaves. The body is the partner of Brenna's best friend's father. Brenna and Tenley search for clues to the murderer. Fun book. Third book in the decoupage mystery series.”ITZME wrote this review Saturday, March 12, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Third Book in the Series
RELEASE DATE: March 1, 2011
It's Autumn in New England and Morse Point has colors bursting out all over which draws the tourists to the little town. The problem is the colors are not just bursting on the leaves on the trees, some of the wonderful people of Morse Point are showing their true colors as well.
Brenna is helping out a friend by acting as tour guide to a small group touring around Morse Point Lake. One of the tourists thinks he spots a bird not native to the area, but upon closer investigation Brenna finds it is not a bird at all, but a hand sticking up out of a pile of leaves. Yes, another body in Morse Point, but this one has absolutely nothing to do with Brenna.
No, but after the body is identified as the business partner of her best friend's father, Brenna finds herself stuck right in the middle of another sticky situation.
This author has a writing style that just draws you in and doesn't let go. I enjoyed each one better than the last. The characters develop more in each story as do their relationships to each other and the quaint little town. We also learn the past histories of the main characters in little snippets until the author trusts both us and the characters more and more.
Lucy Lawrence has created the perfect tempo to each of these stories, a nice relaxed pace as each plot evolves with impeccable timing.
I haven't decoupaged anything in years so don't let the crafty side to these mysteries turn you away. In fact, after reading them it has rekindled my crafty side just a little bit.
These are well written, wonderfully created cozy mysteries and if that a genre you favor you may find yourself glued to these books from start to finish.
