This great cozy has a lively cast, including a heroine who has enough curiosity to throw herself into the mystery without seeming reckless, and a lovable Irish wolfhound. The complex puzzle to be solved incorporates engaging factual information about needlework. The pace is fast and the puns are amusing. Pop culture references are a trademark of this series and make this installment both contemporary and realistic.
Marcy Singer, owner of the Seven-Year Stitch embroidery shop, is looking forward to the antique textile exhibit at the Tallulah Falls museum. The opening is a success, but when Marcy finds a dead body behind her store wrapped in one of the rugs, the fun is over. The body is that of a missing art expert and possible thief. A too-serious FBI agent seems to consider her a suspect, but her boyfriend, Detective Ted Nash, looks out for her. Then Marcy makes a discovery that could answer mysteries of the past and present.
