“About Paper, Scissors, Death: Book #1 in the Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series:
JUST BECAUSE HER HUSBAND’S NAKED, DEAD, AND IN A HOTEL BED…it might not be what it seems. But there’s that scarf in his mouth. Of course it is. Given the situation, Kiki Lowenstein can’t help remembering that George got her pregnant while cheating on his girlfriend. True, he did the right thing at the time, and their much-loved daughter Anya is now eleven years old. But suddenly he’s embarrassingly dead, and Kiki’s financially embarrassed– the schmuck disinherited his own family! No more Mrs. Nice Guy! Passive soccer mom Kiki transforms swiftly into a fighter, walking right out of her luxurious life and into a scrapbooking store, where she deftly turns a hobby into a moneymaker. Her new gig goes slightly awry when George’s not-so-ex-girlfriend insults her in public, but that’s just the beginning. The hurts keep piling up. Kiki’s husband’s secret life explodes before her eyes, and she discovers Anya has a shocking secret of her own. Then the cops come for Kiki. And Family Services comes for Anya. Good thing this scrapbooker has turned into a scrapper– not to mention a budding detective. An Agatha Award finalist, Joanna Campbell Slan’s first Kiki Lowenstein scrapbooking mystery showcases the author’s delightful gift for turning life’s most dismal moments into humor, yet making us feel there’s hope for us all, even at the darkest of times. Hope arrives for Kiki in the twin forms of a hot, homicide detective and her own newfound ability to cope. Paper, Scissors, Death is the kind of mystery that keeps you turning the pages just to spend time with the characters, who somehow make you feel this could be you if your life turned upside down– and make you hope you’d turn it around as gracefully. In case that’s not enough of a stress-reliever, Slan also provides the ultimate warm-and-fuzzy: a wonderful floppy-eared Great Dane named Gracie. Fans of feel-good cozy mysteries, especially funny ones with animals or hobbies, should run, don’t walk, to grab this first book in a series of 15 (plus 27 short story collections).
