Scrapbook shop owner Carmela helps her friend renovate an old mansion in New Orleans into a crafty haunted house for tourists, but finds herself investigating a series of murders when a flaming body comes crashing through the window.

Blackwell North Amer
Carmela, owner of Memory Mine scrapbooking shop, and her best friend Ava Gruiex, owner of Juju Voodoo, have a big project ahead. Melody Mayfeldt is converting an old mansion in the Faubourg Marigny district into an unforgettable haunted house for those who flock to New Orleans for a creepy fix. She needs Carmela's crafty touch to make the Medusa Manor come to life - and evoke the dead - in time for the upcoming horror convention, DiscordaCon.
But Melody takes her house haunting a little too seriously - especially when her flaming body comes crashing through a tower window to welcome Carmela and Ava to the job.
Someone wanted Carmela's client dead - very dead. Carmela's in some deep gumbo again and needs to crop out a killer from the throngs of people there for DiscordaCon and the big Galleries and Gourmets celebration. Then maybe it won't be so hard living in the Big Easy.

Our perky short heroine and her outgoing Amazonian friend have the job of decorating a haunted house. There's a formula for this sort of book (the perky heroine, the opposite sidekick, the bigger group of sidekicks for bigger jobs, the dog, the boyfriend, the self-employed business, the household tips, the recipes)...I'd like to try one of the recipes.
