In Tallulah Falls, Oregon, we find Marcy Singer at her embroidery shop, The Seven Year Stitch, making plans to enhance a wedding dress for her latest client, Cassandra Wainwright. Cassandra's fiancé's mother, Francesca, is giving the couple some fancy gems to have sewn on the vintage gown and it will be Marcy's job to come up with a design and implement it all within the space of a few weeks. Cassandra, not exactly the sweetest bride-to-be, insists on a Valentine's Day wedding. Not exactly ideal timing!

When a woman is found stabbed to death just outside Marcy's shop with an empty jewel pouch similar to the one Cassandra had given Marcy the day before, all hell breaks loose when it turns out to be Francesca, Cassandra's future mother-in-law. In the woman's pocket is Marcy's name and address. Now the police think Marcy had something to do with it just because it turns out the gems Cassandra gave her were real. Of course, Marcy has to find the real killer and exonerate herself.

As if this isn't enough to contend with, Marcy's ex-fiancé, David, has shown up in Tallulah Falls. The last time Marcy saw him was the day before he jilted her back in San Francisco. What on earth is he doing there? And why now? He insists it's just because he wants Marcy back. No way! She already has two men she is dating and can't decide on. She doesn't need to add another! Besides, during her sleuthing and digging into the victim's past, Marcy finds out he's been hiding something that could have a connection to the murder. Hmmmmm....

Lots of fun reading in this one as Marcy juggles her crazy business and personal life along with playing amateur sleuth. 3
