You can’t help but admire Marcy Singer, the heroine of Amanda Lee’s Embroidery Mystery series. She’s doing what she loves, has two men courting her, and is even able to bring her Irish wolfhound, Angus, to her embroidery shop, The Seven-Year Stitch, every day. That is, until Bridezilla—a.k.a. Cassandra Wainwright—shows up with a vintage wedding gown.
She hires Marcy to embroider some costume jewels, a gift from her mother-in-law to-be, on the dress. It’s dislike at first sight for Marcy, especially because Cassandra’s first (of many) demands is that Angus be banished to the back room and Marcy run a lint brush over the store’s sofa before Cassandra will deign to sit on it.
Then the mother-in-law to-be is found stabbed to death outside Marcy’s shop. And further investigation of the jewels reveals that they’re not costume at all, but the real thing and worth a small fortune.
Marcy becomes a suspect in the murder, and to complicate matters even more, her ex-fiancée—the same guy who dumped her at the altar a year ago—shows up to try and jump-start their relationship.
“Thread Reckoning” is an entertaining read, with just the right mix of mystery and romance to make fans of cozy mysteries eager for the next book in the series.
