Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer is about to have the rug pulled out from under her….

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.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Never a dull moment in Tallulah Falls. Marcy finds her way right into the middle of another investigation. At least this time Marcy or her mother is not at the top of the suspect list. In fact this time Ted and Marcy really team up to find the truth.  Their relationship in really evolving in so many ways.

I absolutely love Angus, Marcy’s Irish Wolfhound. I would love to enter the Seven Year Stitch and be greeted by that wonderful dog. Her is so smart and evens obeys a very special visitor to Marcy’s shop. He is such a smart dog and a perfect companion. He graces the cover of the books and I wish I could just reach in a give him a big hug.

This mystery takes a real turn the will leave you thinking. How far would you go to help one of your children? Would you do something you know is wrong if it would allow you to do something right?

As always Amanda Lee has given us a fabulous story. She has introduced us to a few new characters. One who could be very important as the series continues.

Our favorites return as well. Marcy’s mom, Beverly, may be back in California but they stay in touch as much as they can.  Mom’s need to be able to share advice and wise words no matter how many miles they are away from their children.

These stories are so much fun to read. I highly recommend them to all cozy lovers.

  1. I haven’t read this series yet, and I was just checking it out…I have quite a few that I have to catch up on, I better get started. I love the cover, the dog is so cute!

  2. I love this series. It’s one of my favorites. I’ve read the first five. She also writes as Gayle Trent. The main character decorates cakes.

  3. I have a read a different stitching series and would very much like to read this one. recycling books is the best. I do it also unless it’s one I can’t bear to part with.
