Death Among the Doilies
by Mollie Cox Bryan

I was happy to see Cora’s line of work and dedication, but thrilled she was real. I kinda, sorta spent the whole book picturing the burned-out counselors getting a new start like her and others going to her retreat for a break.
~The Broke Book Bank

I found Death Among the Doilies to be well written and well plotted. I enjoyed reading it. The characters in this story are all very fascinating and interesting…

While still very cozy, this mystery gets more complex with each page turn. Sprinkled among the tense moments are wonderful crafts and delicious treats.
~Laura’s Interests

…an excellent cozy mystery. This story has character depth and emotion, humor, a vivid setting…
~The power of words . . .

Death Among the Doilies is a series that everyone is going to want to add to their shelves. While crafters will love to read about crafts, the characters and mystery will draw in every cozy mystery reader, and I’m certain that this is going to be one series that we will all be raving about for years to come!
~The Cozy Mystery Book Journal

A cast of characters and a story line so well written it will keep you wanting more.
~Shelley’s Book Case

Be prepared to be quickly hooked on the story, the characters, and the small town. I like how the book is written. Very easy to read, with just enough descriptions, not so much to weigh you down.
~A Date With A Book

…this book was a well-done debut in a series that has a promising future.
~Girl Lost in a Book

The setting of this book is wonderful, as is the writing. This one will keep you entertained and turning pages.
~Melina’s Book Blog

Death Among The Doilies is an entertaining cozy murder mystery that will engage you to join in the crazy adventures and trials and tribulations that occur in Indigo Gap, while providing you with a nice dose of southern charm and humor.
~Jersey Girl Book Reviews

Interesting characters with real-life problems and a well plotted mystery kept me reading, and the craft instructions at the end added to the fun. This was a great start to a promising new series.
~The Book’s the Thing

This cozy mystery was fast-paced and had a fun fall feel to it.
~Brooke Blogs

This story is filled with eccentric characters who make this story come to life. The mystery interwoven through each page is captivating, suspenseful and keeps the reader guessing to the end.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

I really enjoyed it and found it a different change from the food themed cozies out there I often find the ones pertaining to crafts, sewing etc are so much fun as you learn about the characters passions and who prefers what type of craft.
~Community Bookstop

Really well written, flowing, fast-paced with several twists that made this book enjoyable and unpredictable until the end. There is suspense, humor and even a bit of romance: a cozy mystery really intriguing and interesting.


Death Among the Doilies
(A Cora Crafts Mystery)

New Series
Cozy Mystery
Kensington (August 30, 2016)
Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1496704641


For thirty-something blogger Cora Chevalier, small-town Indigo Gap, North Carolina, seems like the perfect place to reinvent her life. Shedding a stressful past as a counselor for a women’s shelter, Cora is pouring all her talents—and most of her savings—into a craft retreat business, with help from close pal and resident potter Jane Starr. Between transforming her Victorian estate into a crafter’s paradise and babysitting Jane’s daughter, the new entrepreneur has no time for distractions. Especially rumors about the murder of a local school librarian . . .

But when Jane’s fingerprints match those found at the grisly crime scene, Cora not only worries about her friend, but her own reputation. With angry townsfolk eager for justice and both Jane’s innocence and the retreat at risk, she must rely on her creative chops to unlace the truth behind the beloved librarian’s disturbing demise. Because if the killer’s patterns aren’t pinned, Cora’s handiwork could end up in stitches . . .
