If I could have, I would have given this book 3.5 stars instead of 4, because of the Ted/Todd relationship issues. As another reviewer stated, this dilemma has grown stale and needs to be resolved.
One other tiny irritation was the fact that Tod and/or Tedd are always nearby when she is in any need. It's almost like neither of them does anything else with their free time but check on her.
All the negative points aside, I do plan to keep reading further books in this series. One bonus point to these for me is there aren't obscenities and sexual escapades on every page, as has become the custom of many mysteries lately, even cozy ones.
Looking forward to the next one!
Former San Francisco accountant, Marcy Singer, owner of the Seven Year Stitch embroidery shop knows both males and refuses to accept they killed Stott although neither will say what happened. Knowing what it is like to be accused of murder (see Stich Me Deadly and The Quick and The Thread), and encouraged by her BFF Blake's wife Sadie, Marcy investigates. She learns the mysterious Tawny is somehow involved.
The latest Embroidery amateur sleuth (see Thread Reckoning) is an engaging whodunit filled with clues that are in plain sight yet difficult to knit together, and a solid cause for the spunky heroine to investigate the murder. The entertaining storyline grips the reader as Marcy embroiders the case one stitch at a time.
During a St. Patrick's Day party at Todd's pub, The Brew Crew, something goes terribly wrong when a man is found shot dead in the back room. The dead man is a frat brother of both Todd and Blake and they both were alone in the room when the murder occurred, but neither of them can remember what happened, and are pretty sure they didn't kill him. Then they learn only their fingerprints were on the gun.
All clues point at Blake and Todd but there has to be a mistake. These friends are going to need the "Luck of the Irish" and some help from Marcy to get out of this one. Ted is not going to be pleased as she puts herself right in the middle of other investigation.
Another winner from Miss Amanda Lee!!!
This is one of those cases where you know there is much more to the story. Marcy knows her friends are innocent so there is something everyone is missing. While working on her project in the sit-in-stitch square she keeps running through all the information and clues and works to stitch together what really happened.
These are down-to-earth characters everyone can relate to and feel a kinship with. I have no trouble picturing myself in Todd's pub having a beer, at MacKenzies' Mochas with the gang having a muffin, or at the Seven Year Stitch learning new embroidery techniques, while petting Angus. Small town USA is alive and well in these embroidery mysteries, but there is always a dead body or two, and a mystery to keep us needled until the final twist of the thread.
This a fun mystery that I couldn't put down and read all in one sitting.Read more ›

Cute cozy and not break from more graphic novel I enjoy. I think every needlework shop owner out there could actually sit down and stitch as much as Marcy Singer and make a living... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Colleen Heck
