In Bead on Trouble, the first of a brand new series, Smith strings together a tale of high intrigue set at a beaders' colony. Former Texas senator Kitzi Camden joins her old friend Beth at a retreat thick with beaders, but she soon finds that a much more deadly craft is being practiced there: the art of murder!

    " good mystery, loved the location (summer craft camp for adults!) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Grey853 | 5/10/2013

    " You know those characters who just keep doing stupid things and you want to smack them? Well, that's the main character in this one. I found the whole situation and resolution ludicrous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimmie | 3/6/2013

    " This was a great lighthearted cozy. Kitzi is a former senator, inspirational speaker and hobby beader. The plot centers around Bead camp and is full of fun. Sadly, this author passed away in 2005 and book 2 in this series is co-authored. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vickie | 11/3/2012

    " Decent, but won't get more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 10/23/2012

    " This book was a very light read. The camp setting brought back memories of my own camp days, and I learned a little bit more about beading, which I'd love to be able to do sometime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 7/6/2012

    " This is the first in a series. It is a fun mystery. I will read others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/14/2012

    " Actually a 3.5 star book. I enjoyed getting to learn a little about beading and the characters were pretty enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 5/18/2012

    " A cute little mystery novel. I liked Kitzi and her friends, and the story was good enough. I don't foresee hunting down anymore of the beading mysteries, but if they came my way I would probably read them. There wasn't enough intrigue to make me want to find out more though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary Z : ) | 5/12/2012

    " This wasn't my kind of book. I listened to it as an audiobook, and the person reading had a very uneven, lurching cadence. It distracted me from a story that I'm not sure existed. I'll never know because I quit after the first two chapters. "
