A Stitch in Crime
Thea James has accepted an assignment as co‑chairperson for Larkindale’s first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she’s already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.
Mary‑Alice Wentworth, a much‑loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea’s dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick‑off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?
When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale’s reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town’s investment in the quilt show before Mary‑Alice is attacked again . . . with far worse results.
Author and speaker Cathy Elliot nourishes her night‑owl habit by creating cozy mysteries and more on her trusty laptop in Anderson, California. Like the protagonist in her new mystery, Cathy is an avid quilter. Besides collecting (too much) cool fabric, she also enjoys hunting for antique treasures.
Abingdon has done a fabulous job on this Quilts of Love series and A Stitch In Crime is another top-notch addition!
As a fan of cozy mysteries, I’m always looking for great books in this genre. Well, I’m thrilled to have discovered Cathy Elliott!
A Stitch In Crime combines all the perfect elements…quilting, community, and crime- to create a story that mystery-lovers won’t be able to put down.
I love amateur sleuths and reluctant detectives and Thea was one of those great heroines that I enjoy reading. I would really enjoy revisiting Larkindale and these characters again.
If you enjoy cozy mysteries, you’ll love this!
