THE QUICK AND THE THREAD
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
If her debut here is any indication, Lee’s new series is going to be fun, spunky and educational. She smoothly interweaves plot with her character’s personality and charm, while dropping tantalizing hints of stitching projects and their history. Marcy Singer is young, fun, sharp and likable. Readers will be looking forward to her future adventures.
In the small town of Tallulah Falls, Ore., the grand opening of Marcy Singer’s specialty shop, Seven Year Stitch, is only marred by the appearance of the previous tenant, who is quite drunk and demanding to speak to Marcy alone.
The next morning, when she opens the shop, she finds said tenant dead in the storeroom, a message scratched with a tapestry needle into the wall near his body. Suddenly her cozy little shop has become a crime scene and she’s not sure if the investigating detective thinks she’s a suspect or a potential date. To clear herself, she has find the killer before she’s either arrested or becomes the next victim. (OBSIDIAN, Aug., 336 pp., $6.99)
