I have read all of Amanda Lee's "Stitching Mysteries", and have enjoyed all of them. They aren't going to win any awards for plot twists or originality (for that, read some Agatha Christies!), but that fact is more than compensated by her strong, likable characters. Her shop, and the whole neighborhood, is a comfortable place to visit.

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!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Tallulah Falls, Oregon on Saint Patrick's Day, The Brew Crew pub owner Todd Calloway hosts a fraternity reunion of Oregon State's Alpha Sigma Phi. However, the fun turns tragic when someone shoots and kills Graham Stott in the back room. The people besides the victim in that room are Todd and his friend Blake Mackenzie. Both their fingerprints are on the murder weapon. The police arrest them; charging them with the homicide of Graham.

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.

I read this book in a mere three hours (and it was 329 pages) so you can tell there wasn't much plot. The plot seemed to drag and I was getting rather tired of Marcy's "man problems" to really enjoy the book. I also had figured out about two thirds of the way through who Drew's father was - though the killer was a surprise. For all Marcy's smarts she could have figured out the father earlier than she did. She was right in saying she should have left Graham's murder up to the authorities. There does come a point when one needs to stop interfering and let the police do their job. If there is another book in the series, I think Marcy's wishy-washy up and down feelings for Todd and Ted need to be resolved. I believe she's better off with Ted.

I've enjoyed this series in the past, but this time feel her snooping caused her to step way over the lines of friendship by sticking her nose where it didn't belong. She could have broken up her friends marriage. Was it really worth it? I won't be returning to this series for more of her thoughtlessness. She's old enough to get over herself and thinking she knows more the the police. I'm glad she's not my friend.

I have read all the previous books in this series and really enjoyed them. This installment however I really struggled with. For starters I really don't know how much more of the Todd or Ted thing I can take. Pick a man and get over yourself! Marcy was actually quite whiny in this installment and I was put off more than once. I think the book went on at least 50 pages to long. The Killer was a surprise but Drew's father was painfully obvious. I kept thinking, for someone so nosy and intrusive you would have thought Marcy would have picked up on it alot sooner. I hope if this series continues then Amanda Lee will whip Marcy back into shape and get the man thing straightened out. It's not working anymore. Time to make a choice.

My greatest goal at this point in my life is to own/manage a cross-stitch store. I love reading about Marcy and imagining myself in her shoes. I also love mysteries and there is always one of these to solve. My problem is that I can read Amanda's books faster than she can write them.

Ok Mindy Singer thankfully doesn't have anyone dying in her shop or on the sidewalk but she is involved in figuring out a who done it, all in the course of helping her friends. The writer writes such believable characters that you feel they are real, the town real, and the plot real. I would suggest that the books get read in order so that the inter play between the characters is understood. Great read, can't wait! Onto the next one!!!

Tallulah Falls is getting ready for St. Patrick's Day and so is Marcy Singer as she tries her hand at a little Irish embroidery called Mountmellick embroidery.

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.

Dollycas Thoughts

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.
