It is with a bit of a heavy heart that I write this review. This will be the last book in the Mainely Needlepoint Mystery due to the death of Lea Wait last year. I enjoyed all the books in this series and this one was no exception. A movie is being shot in Haven Harbor and there are a lot of local residents involved. Angie and Sarah are helping with set design, the movie is based on one of Ruth's books and she is working on rewrites for the script, and some of the young people are acting or ...more

This was an advance reading copy provided by the publisher.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable entry in the Mainely Needlepoint series. Lots of twists and turns and a thoroughly satisfying ending. Highly recommended.

I was so sad to learn that the author died before the book was published. It's always doubly sad when an author passes because she takes all her characters with her. Rest in peace Ms. Wait. Thank you for creating such a beautiful setting and interesting cast of characters. You will all be missed. We readers will be left to stitch our own endings to the series. I hope the remainder of Angie's life will be free of murders and full of love and happily ever afters.

Seeing as Thread and Buried, the ninth book in the Mainely Needlepoint Mystery series by Lea Wait, is Lea's very last book I tried to read it slowly.....but I failed miserably.

I have been a fan of Wait's (since her other series the Antique Prints Mysteries) and her Mainely Needlepoint series since Twisted Threads, the first book in this series. I fell in love with main character Angie Curtis, her hometown of Haven Harbor, her friends and their lives. Every time I open one of these books, I know

From Kensington, Books comes the ninth book in the “A Mainly Needlepoint Mystery” hobby cozy series by Lea Wait, Thread, and Buried.

This enormously popular hobby cozy series has grown in leaps and bounds through each new book. The author has always had a grasp on what makes a good story that readers can sink their teeth into and keep turning the page until the very

There is a movie being filmed in Haven Harbor. Angie and Sarah are working behind the scenes on the sets. The movie is based on one of Ruth's early books and she has been hired to work with a husband and wife writing team to turn the book into a script for the movie. The on set producer is not well liked and is known to harass young, pretty actresses. While filming he is involved in a deadly accident...or was it murder?
I have loved Lea Wait's writing style and characters since I picked up the

Thread and Buried by Lea Wait is a well written cozy mystery. it focuses on the victim, movie director, Marv Mason. Needlepointer, and organizer of a Needlepoint co-op in Maine, Angie is investigating if Marv's death was it an accident or a murder. Marv had the reputation for poor behavior with the young female actresses in his movies, a very current topic.

The story has good structure and character build. I would have liked to get to know a few of the characters more so i could get a sense of

THREAD AND BURIED by Lea Wait is the 9th title in her Mainely Needlepoint mystery series.
There are many aspects of this mystery series that I like. I like the covers - bright, cozy, colorful, very ‘Maine’ - the covers would make good jigsaw puzzles. I like the clever titles - THREAD AND BURIED, HANGING BY A THREAD. I like the chapter headings - quotes from 1800’s magazines for ladies; the historical samplers from the 1700 and 1800’s; the bits of poetry. I like the character of Sarah Byrne who

The last book in the Mainely Needlepoint series. Skye West has brought filmmakers to Haven Harbor to make a film of a book by Ruth Hopkins, one of the Mainely Needlepoint needlepointers, but also a writer, whose books are bestsellers under her various aliases. However, when the director falls on the slippery cliffs in front of everyone, the project comes to a halt as the local and state police begin investigating, and as Angie to help, as she saw the accident. The only question is if it was ...more

This is the last book in this series and it makes me sad again that Lea Wait has passed away. I love her writing and it will be missed!
A movie is being shot in Haven Harbor, based on one of Ruth's books, with a contemporary addition to the original story. Angie & Sarah are providing props for the inside scenes, so they are working a lot in the days of summer in Maine. When the director, Marv, is killed on the rocks at a shoot, things aren't as clear cut as they seem. Did he slip or is there

Haven Harbor is the backdrop for a movie being made based on Ruth Hopkins' book, "Harbor Hopes"! Skye has hired many local people to aid in the movie production--from set design to acting. Angie and Patrick had hoped to spend time together during the summer but the movie production has interfered with that.
Angie, among others, witnesses the accidental? death of director, Marv Mason. Surprising autopsy results leads to a possible murder investigation!

Marc or Hank?

I waited to read this final book of Lea's knowing I would miss the Mainly Needlepointers. Wish there had been more of them featured besides Ruth. Someone did a poor job of proofing this as there were too many times it was Hank who died instead of Marv.

This unfortunately, is the last book in this series, as Ms Wait has left us, but I was happy to visit with these characters one more time. As always this was a well written story with an interesting mystery. My only wish is that we had more closure to the series.

The story and the mystery were well written, definitely a good addition to the series. Sadly, the series is most likely over as the author passed,and I found the ending quite unsatisfying for a series ending.

Fun and twisty.

Knowing this was her last book, I wish she had ended their stories. But as an entry in the series this was a good one. A few bloopers slipped by in the first few chapters, but the character interaction and story was the quality we expect.
