Book Review: A Stitck in Crime by Cathy Elliott

A Stitch in Crime

 The Synopsis:

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.

My Review:

I’ve recently been reading quite a few of these Quilts of Love novellas and have enjoyed the romantic stories, but I was interested (and slightly excited) when I heard of this one that had some mystery in it. Being new to this author, I was pleased with her writing style as well as her storyline. The suspense was very well written and I loved uncovering all the clues with Thea and getting to know the little town. The characters were also very well developed with a variety of personalities. This was another fantastic book to add to the Quilts of Love series and I look forward to further in the series! 5 stars!

Author Bio:

Author and speaker Cathy Elliott 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.
