Keepsake Crimes introduces Carmela Bertrand and her booming scrapbooking shop, Memory Mine, on the fringe of New Orleans's French Quarter. When Carmela's estranged husband is named a suspect in a Mardi Gras murder, it is Carmela who must find the clues to the real killer-in one of her customer's scrapbooks.
In Photo Finished, Carmela is hosting a late-night ""Crop Till You Drop"" session at her shop. But when a neighboring shop owner is murdered in the alley behind the store, Carmela's customers become the focus of the police investigation.
And finally, in Bound for Murder, Carmela is creating custom place settings for a wedding party when she discovers the groom with a knife protruding from his body. Carmela must help the bride pick up the pieces while wrapping up a murder with more than one lethal loose end.
