Synopsis (from

Overdue bills and constant mother vs. mother-in-law battles at home are bad enough. But crafts editor Anastasia Pollack’s stress level is maxed out when she and her fellow American Woman editors get roped into unpaid gigs for a revamped morning TV show. Before the glue is dry on Anastasia’s mop dolls, morning TV turns crime drama when the studio is trashed and the producer is murdered. Former co-hosts Vince and Monica—sleazy D-list celebrities—stand out among a lengthy lineup of suspects, all furious over the show’s new format. And Anastasia has no clue her snooping has landed her directly in the killer’s unforgiving spotlight.

Also includes instructions for creating holiday-themed mop dolls!

Critical acclaim for Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun, the first book in the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series

My thoughts:  I love this witty, charming cozy mystery series.  Anastasia Pollack, crafts editor for American Woman Magazine, is back in another hilarious adventure.  I love this main character, Anastasia, and the rest of this wacky cast of characters.  This series offers a wonderful addition to the cozy mystery genre.  Readers of this series will enjoy reading how the characters continue to grow and develop since the first book in the series “Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun”, including their continued shenanigans.  I am really interested to see what happens between Anastasia and her hunky, photographer tenant . . . are they a couple?  Ooooooo.

I look forward to the next book in the series, “Revenge of the Crafty Corpse” coming in 2013.

This would make a great summer beach read!  Enjoy!

And remember,

Books Are Life,
