9780451467393: Thread End: An Embroidery Mystery

Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer is about to have the rug pulled out from under her....

Marcy can’t wait to see the new exhibit at the Tallulah Falls museum on antique tapestries and textiles, including beautiful kilim rugs. But her enthusiasm quickly turns to terror when, the day after the exhibition opens, she discovers a dead body behind her store, the Seven-Year Stitch, wrapped up in a most unusual fashion.

The victim appears to be a visiting art professor in town for the exhibit. Did someone decide to teach the professor a lesson, then attempt to sweep the evidence under the rug? Along with her boyfriend, Detective Ted Nash, Marcy must unravel an intricate tapestry of deception to find a desperate killer.

About the Author:

Amanda Lee is a full-time cozy mystery writer and author of three cozy mystery series: the Myrtle Crumb mysteries, including When Good Bras Go Bad and Claus of Death; the Daphne Martin Cake mysteries, including Dead PanKiller Sweet Tooth, and Battered to Death; and the Embroidery mysteries, including The Long Stitch Good NightThread on Arrival, and Cross-Stitch Before Dying. She is married and has two gorgeous children. Like Marcy, she enjoys needlecrafts and pop culture.

From Booklist:

Lee continues her series featuring Marcy Singer, owner of an embroidery shop called Seven Year Stitch. Marcy is excited about the large textile exhibit coming to the museum in her small town of Tallulah Falls and wonders why her boyfriend, Detective Ted Nash, is worried about security. It turns out an art thief at large is rumored to be in town; Marcy finds him wrapped in one of the rugs, dead, the day after the exhibit. An incompetent FBI agent and a secretive neighbor cloud the issue of who killed the art thief. Millions of dollars are on the line as Marcy tries to get townspeople and visitors to open up about family and financial secrets that may have led someone to murder. Lee ties her plot threads together at the deliberate pace of an embroiderer, but Marcy is an intelligent series lead and provides the main appeal of the novel. Discussion of the Indian embroidery technique called chikankari adds interest to the proceedings. --Amy Alessio
