Cupid’s arrow is making its way to Tallulah Falls, Oregon, bringing lots of business to Marcy Singer’s embroidery specialty shop-like the bride who wants her mother’s dress embellished with jewels. But someone wants to squash all the romance-and in this case they’ll go as far as murder…
Marcy Singer is the proud owner of The Seven-Year Stitch, an embroidery shop in the quaint town of Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Marcy has been hired by Cassandra Wainwright to embellish a wedding gown with jewels given to her by her future mother-in-law, Francesca Ortega. Not long after taking the job, Francesca is found stabbed to death outside of Marcy’s shop. To complicate Marcy’s life even more, her ex-fiance David, the one who stood her up at the alter, comes to town asking for a second chance.
THREAD RECKONING is the third book in Amanda Lee’s An Embroidery Mystery series. I have not read the first two books, but the author made it very easy to jump right into the story without feeling lost. Marcy was a very likable character surrounded by several friends willing to help her solve the mystery. Marcy was also involved in a love triangle, in addition to her ex-fiance trying to get back into her life. I’m a big fan of romance, so I enjoyed those scenes being woven into the story. If you’re crafty and into embroidery, you’ll enjoy Marcy’s shop talk as well.
