First in a new mystery series that will have readers stitching-and itching for more

When Marcy Singer opens an embroidery specialty shop in quaint Tallulah Falls, Oregon, she throws a soiree and a Stitch-In. Soon, Marcy's sign- up sheet for embroidery classes fills up and everyone in town seems willing to raise a glass-or a needle-to support the newly-opened Seven Year Stitch.

Then Marcy finds the shop's previous tenant dead in the store-room, a message scratched with a tapestry needle on the wall beside him. Now Marcy's shop has become a crime scene, and she's the prime suspect. She'll have to find the killer before someone puts a final stitch in her.

About the Author:

Amanda Lee is the national bestselling author of the Embroidery Mysteries.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lee kicks off a cozy, promising mystery series framed around Marcy Singer and her Tallulah Falls, Ore. embroidery shop, The Seven-Year Stitch. No sooner does Marcy take over retail space formerly occupied by a hardware store that she discovers the dead body of the previous tenant, Tim Enright, in her storeroom. Even though at first glance there's no evidence of foul play, both she and local detective Ted Nash suspect otherwise. Adding to the mystery is a cryptic unfinished message Enright had scratched on the storeroom wall before he died. The clues are gauzy thin and soon a second murder makes everyone a potential suspect. Fans of the genre will take kindly to Marcy, her Irish wolfhound, Angus O'Ruff, and Tallulah Falls. This is a fast, pleasant read with prose full of pop culture references and, of course, sharp needlework puns. (Aug.)
