Everyone at the embroidery shop, and around town, is in a flutter that a glamorous movie production is taking place in their midst. But when the star of the film is found murdered, the police suspect Marcy’s mom, who made it no secret she did not care for the diva’s attitude regarding her wardrobe.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

I love this series and this book has been screaming from my shelf since it arrived. When the next installment, Thread End came out this month I knew I needed to get my butt in gear and catch up on what was happening with Marcy and Angus, her Irish wolfhound right away.

This time Marcy’s mom brings Hollywood to Tallulah Falls and all heck breaks loose. Before they even arrive Ted, Marcy’s cop boyfriend, is chasing a gunman through the streets. Then the movie people come to town and a young starlet is found dead shorty after arguing with Beverly, Marcy’s mom.

It isn’t long before the Seven Year Stitch Sit and Stitch area becomes command central for the Marcy, the Inch High Private Eye, and her friends to try to stitch all the clues together. With all the movie people in town there are plenty of suspects, the murder definitely has to be one of them right??

Amanda Lee has crafted another great story.

a perfect escape

  1. What a fun way to recycle books! Looks like a good read and makes me want to pick up my cross stitch again. It is hard to cross stitch and read at the same time though. LOL

  2. I really need to get started on this series, it sounds wonderful, and I am in love with the dog on the cover.
