Photo, Snap, Shot by Joanna Campbell Slan is the third book in the “Kiki Lowenstein Scrap-N-Craft” mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, May 2010

Old money and tradition are the hallmarks of the St. Louis prep school that Kiki Lowenstein’s daughter Anya attends. But the elite academy is stamped with scandal when Anya finds the dead body of teacher Sissy Gilchrist in its elegant theatre. Even worse, Anya might have seen the killer.

Pegged as a shameless flirt and a lousy teacher, Sissy would’ve made everyone’s “least popular” scrapbook page. Especially for those who were seeing red over Sissy’s mixed-race romance with a colleague. Fearing her daughter is in danger, Kiki sifts through the school community’s many shocking secrets to pin down the murderer, while doing all she can to avoid starring in her own memorial album.

Anya finds a dead body and a suspect is arrested but Kiki believes her daughter is still in danger, so she begins looking in the past of both the victim and the suspect. Helping her unrequited love, Detective Chad Detweiler, Kiki’s life becomes threatened as well. This was a very good read that once I started turning the pages, I couldn’t stop. This was the best book yet in this series and I look forward to reading the next one. My rating: 5 stars
