Review & Giveaway – Framed to Death, by Christina Freeburn

FRAMED TO DEATH  large banner640

Reading Christina Freeburn’s stories always puts me in a crafting mood. I tried scrapbooking once, but I figured my life wasn’t exciting enough. All of the cute stickers, accessories, and papers would simply be framing something mundane. Now, Faith Hunter’s life, on the other hand, is full of adventure and excitement! Granted, her kind of excitement is certainly not something I’d like to experience. But she handles it all with spunk and aplomb, which is something I really like about her character and this series.

As Framed to Death begins, Faith is doing a favor for a friend and neighbor: checking on a party her neighbor’s daughter is hosting at the nail salon next door to Scrap This, Faith’s business with her grandmothers. But instead of tossing out the errant boy crashing the party, Faith ends up stumbling upon illegal drugs and lands smack dab in the middle of a pool of secrets, lies, and accusations. Not only is someone selling drugs around Eden, but there’s also an arsonist about. As much as her friends, family, and the police tell her to stay out of it, Faith can’t help but think there’s a connection between the drugs and the arson – and she can’t stop herself from trying to clear her name and the names of her friends.

As the investigation continues, the plot threads become more and more entangled, and Faith begins to wonder if she’ll ever discover the truth. To be honest, I found myself a little lost at times, as well. The suspect list grew so quickly and I had some trouble keeping up with all of the twists and turns. That said, Christina Freeburn’s writing kept me intrigued and turning pages. I especially love the romance brewing between Faith and Ted. I remember thinking that Faith and Steve just didn’t seem to fit for me in previous stories and I am eager to see how things develop in coming stories! Framed to Death is a crafty murder mystery full of unexpected plot twists and plenty of suspicious characters – what more could mystery fans want?

Synopsis

Eden has turned into a hotspot of crime, and Faith finds herself smack dab in the middle of the flare-up. When a favor for a friend links Faith to the synthetic marijuana problem invading her town, no good deed goes unpunished becomes the title of her life. The town accuses the police of favoritism toward her, putting a strain between Faith and Ted, and a new officer is determined to prove Faith’s guilt.

When the criminal is outed, Faith’s relief is short-lived. A fire takes out the store—along with the suspected dealer—and she’s now number one on an officer’s suspect list. Faith sets out to prove her own innocence, and her digging sparks the truth to life. Instead of the truth setting the town free, Faith finds out it might destroy Eden, the friends she holds dear, and smother out her own life.

About the Author
christina.png
The Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery series brings together Christina Freeburn’s love of mysteries, scrapbooking, and West Virginia. When not writing or reading, she can be found in her scrapbook room or at a crop. Alas, none of the real-life crops have had a sexy male prosecutor or a handsome police officer attending.

Christina served in the JAG Corps of the US Army and also worked as a paralegal, librarian, and church secretary. She lives in West Virginia with her husband, children, a dog, and a rarely seen cat except by those who are afraid or allergic to felines.
