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!
Time for the tough to get going. Passive Kiki transforms swiftly into a fighter, walking right out of her luxurious lifeand 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 hurt keeps piling up.
Her husband’s secret life expands before her eyes, and she discovers Anya has a shocking secret of her own. Then the cops come for her. 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.
Hobbyists will love the way author Slan weaves the art of scrapbooking into the solution, and everyone will love Kiki herself.
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 dog. Fans of feel-good cozy mysteries, especially funny ones with animals or hobbies, should run, don’t walk, and pick up the pace if they love authors like Alexander McCall Smith, Hope Callaghan, Amy Vansant, and Carolyn Hart.

SWEET MEMORIES MADE OF MURDER–
PASTRY, PIZZA, AND A POISONOUS PILL…

St. Louis, Missouri — Recovering from financial ruin and the murder of her husband—
she’s not saying which was worse — Kiki Lowenstein’s getting her life back on track as a professional scrapbooker, in charge of a huge event at the Missouri Botanical Garden. But during the scrapbooking soiree, somebody has an allergic reaction, and not to the plants.

As luck would have it, it just happens to be someone Kiki’s allergic to—scrapbooking rival, Yvonne Grayson, whose epi pen is mysteriously empty. As planned—by someone—the victim goes into anaphylactic shock and dies, right in front of half the hobbyists in the state of Missouri.

Bad press for Kiki’s scrapbooking cred! Fortunately, Detective Chad Detweiler’s on the case—Kiki’s crush from the late spousal unpleasantness. He’s been bringing her pizza, hold the romance, and now it’s pizza, hold the intel—Kiki’s about to gain weight without even getting kissed—or solving the case herself.

But he might have let slip just enough to go on…Yvonne was allergic to aspirin and it was found in her favorite pastry. A sweet and healing tidbit?

The fun of this one, of course, is in the scrapbooking lore and fiery rivalry between Kiki and her scrapbooking frenemies. You’ll find yourself rooting for the sweet and resilient Widow Lowenstein, who’s determined as ever to protect her complicated but wholesome suburban life. Author Slan weaves pro scrapbook sleuthing tips effortlessly into the plot, making the reader feel like they’re getting a crash course in cropping and hunting down a depraved murderer. It’s a double how-to for the price of one!

CUT, CROP, & DIE examines professional jealousy in an unusual arena (crafting), while exploring the complexities of women’s friendships. In the end, it’s Kiki’s ability to make friends that saves the day.

AS MANY SECRETS AS PILES OF STUFF—MURDER IN A HOARDER’S HAVEN…

The phrase “hostess with the mostest” takes on a whole new meaning when crafty amateur sleuth Kiki Lowenstein finds herself stuck in the middle of a hoarder’s crime scene in the third installment of the Joanna Slan’s cozy mystery series. But proceed with caution: this one’s as littered with surprises as it is clutter.

Scrapbook maven Kiki happens to be a card-carrying Episcopalian—but she respects the power of intuition. So when she has a “bad feeling” en route to Marla Lever’s house for a scrapbooking crop, she heeds her instincts. Something is definitely very wrong. Marla’s nowhere to be seen, although her car’s in the garage—buried under a heap of garbage and lawn furniture. Tip of the iceberg, sadly. Because the potential horror of scrapbooking in a hoarder’s paradise pales in comparison to the body the cops find in Marla’s freezer.

Marla’s nearly dead herself—passed out from heat stroke, no thanks to the suffocating aroma of her 101 feline friends. Or so it seems… But the hoarding and the human popsicle aside, something about her circumstances just doesn’t seem right to Kiki—whose insatiable curiosity and endearing persistence make her an ace amateur sleuth. For one, why would Marla turn off her A/C in the thick of a heat wave when she’s expecting company?

Alongside her coworkers at Time in a Bottle scrapbooking store (some more delightful than others), and with a helping hand from her longtime crush Detective Chad Detweiler, Kiki digs deep into a treasure trove of clues—from Marla’s semi-estranged children to her barely-touched inheritance—meticulously gluing the pieces together as only a scrapbooker could. But it’s only a matter of time until curiosity kills the cat—or until Kiki’s spidey sense winds her down a path even more treacherous than one of Marla’s hallways.

To say that “Ink, Red, Dead” is a page-turner is an understatement. Readers will tear through these pages like a fashion addict at a sample sale. And we dare you not to fall in love with Kiki–whose fearlessness would make her intimidating, were she not so adorable. Plus, her delectable romance with Detective Chad would provide a delightful relief—if it weren’t so steamy. The duo’s tension heats up in this outing ever-so subtly, one longing glance and another brush of the hand at a time–sure to make the toes curl! A sure thing for craft cozy fans of Brianna Bates, Laura Childs, Lois Winston, and Mollie Cox Bryan.

Includes free bonus file with recipes and projects!

THE SCHOOL NURSE CALLS TO SAY THAT KIKI’S DAUGHTER, ANYA, HAS STUMBLED OVER THE CORPSE OF A DEAD TEACHER. BUT EVERYTHING’S ALL RIGHT … NOW. HA. HA. HA!

And Kiki might just believe that a badly shaken daughter is the worst of her worries…EXCEPT… that pre-teen Anya might have actually seen the killer fleeing the scene of the crime.
Now Kiki must track down a murderer before the creep “guarantees” Anya’s silence forever. After taking a vow to have nothing to do with her crush, the hunky police detective, Kiki is all on her own. Her natural curiosity, bravery, and scrapbooking skills are all that stand between her and a dead daughter.
But Kiki is nothing if not determined. Her digging around uncovers a decades-old secret, one that still haunts St, Louis today. Could it be that a racially charged debutante ball holds the clue to the killer’s identity? How far will Kiki go to protect her child? That one’s easy: She’ll put her life on the line. In fact, Kiki even goes undercover to attend a meeting of White Supremacy group, thugs who have vowed to eradicate the people she loves!
If you enjoy reading clean, cozy mysteries that feature realistic, well-developed characters, Kiki and her pals will quickly become your new best friends. This fast-paced plot includes an intriguing mystery, a taboo romance, a secret society that still exists today, and the struggles of a single mom who’s determined to make her way in the world while parenting her young daughter. By the end, you’ll be cheering for Kiki, a loveable misfit who leads with her heart.

PHOTO, SNAP, SHOT harks back to a dark time in the history of St. Louis. The tendrils of the past still haunt that city (and the Midwest in general), but that toxic cloud is nothing compared to Kiki’s belief in the innate goodness of people.
These books will appeal to fans of Elaine Viets, Brianna Bates, Ellery Adams, Alexander McCall Smith, Laura Childs, Lois Winston, and Mollie Cox Bryan. If you like to learn new things, think about topical issues, and identify with fabulous characters, this series is perfect for you!

Also includes a bonus preview of Ready, Scrap, Shoot: Book #6 in the Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series.

Dumpster diving for her lost paycheck is definitely the low point of Kiki Lowenstein’s day―that is, until she finds a severed leg thrown in with the trash. Who’d toss a body part in the garbage outside the crafts store where Kiki works?

Accompanying the grisly “gift” is a creepy computerized voice message, a warning to the store’s “rich and snotty” female shoppers. Kiki soon discovers that the leg belonged to Cindy Gambrowski, a customer with a tyrannical and violent husband―who’s now harassing Kiki. Combing through Cindy’s scrapbook projects for hidden clues, Kiki tries to find the killer. Was it a crime of marital malice, or did someone else beat Cindy’s husband to the punch?

Unfortunately, the answer is YES.
After running for her life and huddling in a car until the all-clear is sounded, Kiki needs a shoulder to cry on. Instead, she gets chewed out by her browbeating mother. But things can always get worse…and they do.
When Kiki’s mother-in-law announces that she’s getting married, Kiki’s daughter, Anya, becomes unglued. Suddenly, Anya will be the last Lowenstein standing…and that’s enough to break a young girl’s heart. In the meantime, Kiki must cope with a grouchy, self-centered elderly mother, not to mention all the logistical problems that inevitably come with being a single mom.
Meanwhile, an old enemy has put out a contract on Kiki. She’s worth a lot more dead than alive, which isn’t surprising given the state of Kiki’s finances. This would be a good time to focus on work at the scrapbooking and craft store–except Kiki can’t shake the memory of those sniper shots raining down.
While creating a memorial album for the murdered bee heiress, Kiki discovers murky family politics that could be a motive for murder. With help from friends in high and low places, including hunky beau Chad Detweiler, Kiki finds herself facing a grave ultimatum: catch the killer or be cropped out of her own family album.

With each hour that passes, the chances of finding Bonnie’s baby alive grow slimmer.
Can someone turn this tragic situation around? Where’s Kiki’s support network when she needs it?

Kiki and her husband must ask themselves the toughest questions they’ll every have to face: Can we trust this person with our kids? The answer might say more about them than it does about their nanny, Brawny.
