Book Review-Crossed By Death (Stitches In Crime Book 1)-ACF Bookens

Friday, March 4, 2022

Paisley is a single Mom to a 2 yr old toddler-and like any 2 year old he plays a prominent role. His Mom. Paisley, salvages from old historic buildings-usually with the toddler and their cat in the car. The last thing she expected to find was a dead body! Luckily her son and cat were in the car so did not know about this. She called 911 and a really good looking policeman showed up.

Paisley went on a hunt for information about this old house and the families that used to live there--she did share with the police officer almost every evening!

Will they track down who the murderer was --and there were actually two murders-one from years before! She manages to get into danger once or twice--I enjoyed the story line but I really loved that toddler!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Salvaging from historic buildings isn’t supposed to require reporting a murder.​

When salvage expert and historian Paisley Sutton crawls into an abandoned store with a house attached, she certainly isn’t expecting to find a body on site. But soon, her discovery sends Paisley on an expedition through history that links this murder to the one that led the previous owners to abandon the building in the first place. And someone doesn’t want her to salvage this story from the wreckage.

Can Paisley preserve herself and her young son while also uncovering the stories that matter most?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

ACF Bookens loves a good mystery, a quaint bookshop, and a good cup of coffee. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where she takes joy in the mountain views and the quiet back roads. She lives with her son Milo and a beautiful rescue hound who inspired Mayhem in her St. Marin's Cozy Mystery Series.

Aslan, the cat in her books, is based on her departed first cat by that name, who spent an inordinate amount of time digging up her houseplants.

In her books, Bookens addresses issues of justice and writes with intention to disrupt the white supremacy that says that "whiteness" is normal by making purposeful note of every character's ethnicity. She is weary of books that assume everyone is white unless the author says otherwise because being white is not the default of reality.

Her hope is that readers enjoy escaping into her stories and are challenged, just a little, to make themselves better people and the world a better place from the reading.
