More About the Author

While spending a rainy afternoon at a friend's house more than thirty years ago, Elizabeth Lynn Casey (a.k.a. Laura Bradford) fell in love with writing over a stack of blank paper, a box of crayons, and a freshly sharpened number two pencil. From that moment forward, she never wanted to do anything else.

Today, she is the author of the bestselling Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries. She also pens the Amish Mysteries under her real name, Laura Bradford. She lives in New York with her family.

In Elizabeth Lynn Casey's new book, PINNED FOR MURDER, the third installment of her Southern Sewing Circle Mystery series, a mysterious murder that involves one of their own has the Sweet Briar Ladies' Society Sewing Circle in a tizzy, and they once again look to their favorite librarian Tori Sinclair to help piece together the clues.

After a devastating tropical storm ravages Sweet Briar, many of the town folks are busy cleaning up the damage left behind, some with the help of a band of drifters who have come to town seeking work. Tori has her hands full at the library which has lost a lot of books due to the storm, but when she hears that fellow Sewing Circle member Rose's house was heavily hit, she and the other ladies are concerned about their friend. Rose assures them that her former student, Kenny Murdock, will be doing her repairs as soon as he finishes up next door at Martha Jane Barker's house. But when Martha Jane is found strangled to death in her bedroom and all her stashed-away money is gone, all suspicions turn to Kenny, who is known for having a violent temper.

Something doesn't seem quite right to Tori, and she begins to check into the crime and Kenny's involvement as a favor to her dear friend Rose. With the help of her beau, Milo, and the ladies of the sewing circle, Tori soon finds that one should never make assumptions when it comes to murder - especially when somebody has been playing Robin Hood about town - taking from the rich to give to the poor.

Mixing a suspenseful story with a dash of down-home flavor, Elizabeth Lynn Casey once again offers an up-close look at Southern small-town living with PINNED FOR MURDER.

I'm not a big fan of the mystery genre - I feel it's been played out and there's little room for originality, but instead, you have to go and make the characters memorable in order for me to care about the people involved. And despite thinking I wouldn't be won over by these eccentric Southern women, I was.

The Sweet Briar ladies are certainly unique characters, and they sucked me into their world with the folksyness and their Southern charm. Sure, there wasn't that much in terms of new ground being broken in the genre, but they made the series for me. I did feel like I did miss a bit because this is the third book in the series, but it wasn't that bad.

Overall, it's a cute mystery, and I'll have to start from the beginning. Despite me not being into sewing and being a Yankee, I liked it, and would recommend it to mystery lovers for the characters alone.

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! This is a good cozy and it's why I read a lot of cozies. If I want angst and horror and strife, I'll watch the news, thank you very much. This is a good book in that the characters are all believable and, like the protag, I have friends of all ages. There are a lot of good life lessons in this book but it's entertaining and uplifting and complicated enough to keep my attention. I enjoy the relationship between Tori and Milo and the relationships Tori has with all her friends as well as her special friendsip with little Lulu! This was a very good read for me and I'm sorry there aren't more Southern Sewing series books out yet but I'll eagerly await the next one. Thanks, Elizabeth!

elizabeth has done it again! a cozy little mystery with a remarkable cast of characters. the members of the 'south carolina sweet briar ladies society sewing circle' will become almost family as you read this tale. you never find out whodunit until the last chapter, leaving you guessing all through the story. miss elizabeth has a way with a story that draws you in. i could tell you what the story is about, but it would spoil the story. you need to enjoy this one for yourself,and enjoy you will. so grab a cuppa whatever you like, light the fireplace, sit a spell, and join the sewing circle ladies for an evening of pleasure reading. it doesn't get any better than that.

Elizabeth Lynn Casey really went for the ambitious story in Pinned for Murder, the third book in her lovely Southern Sewing series and pulled it off completely.

I don't do synopses so if you're looking for that go read the one under Product Description or in another review. What I will tell you is how brave and strong this story was written.

It's a cozy, you say. Yes, it is a cozy in that there is no gratuitous sex or violence and the sleuth is an amateur. But ELC's delving into the tough topics of how, as a society, we handle crimes committed by those who are less mentally capable; how some of the older generation, especially in the South, still view race; how we treat those in our community with less and how we try to understand the choices that they and we make. I don't want to make this book out to be some kind of treatise on the haves and have nots. But in the midst of this entertaining murder mystery ELC manages to provide a deep insight into real people's actions and motives by the actions and motives of her characters. It moved me and I am grateful that I got to read it.

But the real question, you want to know, is ... is it a good mystery? Are there twists and turns and clues and red herrings? Yes, yes and yes.

Finally, what I really like about the Southern Sewing series is that the supporting cast seems to get a book of their own to shine. This one is Rose. If we get a book featuring a more prominent role for each of the Sweet Briar ladies in Tori's life then we will be well served by this talented author.
