Thread Reckoning by Amanda Lee is the third book in the “Embroidery” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian (Penguin), September 2011
Cupid’s arrow is making its way to Tallulah Falls, Oregon, bringing lots of business to Marcy Singer’s embroidery specialty shop. But the course of true love never has run smoothly.
St. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and residents are in a romantic frame of mind. In fact, one blushing bride has commissioned Marcy to embellish her mother’s vintage wedding gown with jewels for her Valentine’s Day wedding. Marcy is delighted–until she finds that the worst bridezillas have nothing on this bride to be. When the bride’s future mother-in-law is found stabbed to death outside Marcy’s shop, matters go from bad to worse.
This was a fun read that I could not put down. This book moved at a good pace as the mystery kept me riveted to the pages. With a small town feel; great dialogue, and a lovable cast, this was a great read and I look forward to more adventures in this wonderfully-crafted and entertaining series.
