Suede to Rest
by Diane Vallere

This is a fast paced story that has entertaining characters, great dialogue and a well-written cozy mystery. I was drawn in right from the beginning.
~Brooke Blogs

Ms. Vallere does an excellent job introducing us to Poly, her family history and the story behind “Land of A Thousand Fabrics”… I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next installment, Crushed Velvet when it comes out.
~Queen of All She Reads

The plot will keep you captive with great characters and a town painted so vividly you will feel like you are there…
~Shelley’s Book Case

This is truly an awesome beginning for a new series… It’s full of intrigue. The characters are well developed. And I loved them all.
~Booklady’s Booknotes

This was a cozy that kept my attention from the time I picked it up until I finally put it down.
~Melina’s Book Blog

I will go so far as to call this an innovation in cozy mysteries. Make no mistake, I have enjoyed every cozy I have read so far, and Suede to Rest added a new refreshing twist that made me sit up and ‘take notice’.
~Back Porchervations

I really loved this book! … Great new series, one to definitely check out. We give it 5 paws up!
~Storeybook Reviews

This is an amazing debut. Diane Vallere has introduced us to some very strong characters and the plot is full of unexpected twists. I was totally drawn into this story and it held on tight.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

A wonderful cast of characters …
~Mochas, Mysteries and Meows

This was a really interesting read. There were plenty of puns, like polyester and a material witness, that kept me reading and looking for more.

When Poly Monroe was little, she loved playing in her family’s textile store. But after a fatal family tragedy, Land of A Thousand Fabrics was boarded up and Poly never expected to see the inside again. Now, as inheritor of the long-shuttered shop, she’s ready to restore the family business. However her two new kittens, Pins and Needles, aren’t the ones causing a snag in her plans…

Not everyone wants Poly back in San Ladrón, especially a powerful local developer pressuring her to sell—and leave town fast. But even when the threats turn deadly, she’s not ready to bolt. Because Poly is beginning to suspect that the murder behind the shop is tied to a mystery in her family’s unsettled past that she’s determined to solve…before her own life is left hanging by a thread.
