This weeks read is a guilty pleasure.
Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke’s The Cinderella Murder.
Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program — a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected — is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode.
Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan’s boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered?
With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood’s elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen — but is Cinderella’s murderer ready for a close-up?
I haven’t read MHC in ages and I’ve always liked Alafair Burke’s books.
A good book to throw in my bag and take with me.
Today, I went to start my car to go run errands and…nothing.
So, while I waited for Triple A, I decided to do a little sewing.
I had seen Jennifer Bosworth of Shabby Fabrics tutorial for a fat quarter Infinity Scarf and thought it would be a quick project.
Youtube tutorial found here.
I used fat quarters I already had in my stash.
Final result, a really cute scarf!
Light enough for cool spring nights.
I’d like to make another, but may make the width less.
This is a quick project I can practice my seam allowances on.
Have a good week!
