Thread End by Amanda Lee is the 7th book in the “Embroidery” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, June 2014
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.
I love the pace and flow of this beguiling mystery that was both engaging and entertaining. The author did a great job in keeping the suspense alive in this well-developed storyline. Boasting a great cast of characters that includes Ted, Marcy, Vera and Beverly (via phone), and good conversation, this was delightfully charming read and I look forward to more adventures in Tallulah Falls.
