    A good story. I liked the locale and characters, and especially the setting of a needlecrafts shop. I really wanted to give it four stars. The biggest reason for downgrading it is this: if an author is going to write a series centered around a craft, especially one she professes to have done, then she ought to be able to get the little details right. Several times throughout the book, the author incorrectly refered to a 3/4 stitch as a half stitch. They are not the same thing. Anyone who does A good story.

Several times throughout the book, the author incorrectly refered to a 3/4 stitch as a half stitch. They are not the same thing. Anyone who does counted cross-stitch knows that a full stitch looks like the letter "X." A half stitch is just as it sounds, only half the [X] so that it looks like [\] or [/]. A 3/4 stitch looks like a [y] -- you leave off one of the four legs. Half stitches are very easy to do; 3/4 stitches, on the other hand, can sometimes be a bit tricky, especially for a beginner. I know that many readers will not have known the difference, and even upon hearing of such a mistake are likely to think, "Big deal!" To the serious crafter, however, it is a big deal -- a VERY big deal. It distracted me the entire rest of the book.

The previous owner of the premises crashes her grand opening party; he is drunk and kept telling Marcy he had something to tell her – because he is drunk she keeps avoiding him, but the next morning she finds him dead in her storeroom. Before his death he had scratched a message on the wall that could be a clue to his murderer. Marcy is being looked at as a suspect so she decides she needs learn the meaning behind the message to clear her name. When a second body turns up she realises that she may be in danger. There are some great supporting acts – the main ones being her childhood friend Sadie and her husband Blake along with a man called Todd they want to set Marcy up with. Then there is the investigative officer Ted, another potential love interest. There is nothing over the top or unbelievable in the story and I think just about every character in the book became a suspect for me at one stage or another. So, other than the two deaths; there are misunderstandings, deceit, betrayal, financial shenanigans and an edge of the seat climax when everything is revealed. Overall it is a light-hearted read and I will certainly read more in the series

    I used to enjoy doing counted cross-stitch and knew that I would like reading this series. I wish I'd started it sooner though. I hadn't realized what I was missing! The mystery was really good and had me wondering who in the world to trust. The author did a great job of tossing out red herrings and shifting trust or mistrust to the various characters. I even wondered about a couple of the good characters, lol.

I did enjoy getting to know Marcy and her new embroidery business customers, her good friend Sadie, her quirky but fun mom Beverly and her new friend Vera who had a skill that came in very handy during the showdown with a killer! That was some showdown too! It was very exciting and satisfying. I liked how everything was explained completely at the end too. I'm not sure whether Marcy will be interested in Todd that her friend Sadie fixed her up with or the good detective Ted, but I'm sure I'll find out when I read on. :)

Did he die naturally from drinking, or were his scratchings on the wall a clue to his murder? This was an especially fun cozy mystery for me. I'm a needle crafter at heart and the references were just right to add great flavor to this mystery. Better yet, were the many funny, often sarcastic, references to old TV shows and movies. The characters were fully developed right from the start, and I found myself rooting for Marcy and her friends as they got into and out of difficult situations. I also liked her potential love interests--I know who is my favorite too. The mystery was deeper than most cozies and I found that very satisfying. Great start to this series!!

    The heroine has an Irish Wolfhound, a gentle dog, which gives her a companion and someone to speak to occasionally. Other than getting her out of the house for exercise he's not in a key role, but it's more unusual than the cats in many cosy craft mysteries.

Having arrived in a small town where she only has one friend, the amateur sleuth sets up her embroidery shop and waits for custom. The opening night party is spoiled when a drunk man who used to rent the shop arrives; next day he is found dead in the storeroom. Now, an incoherent man scratching a clue on the wall with a needle which he can probably barely hold, isn't going to write Four Square. He's going to scratch a number 4 and a square. I don't know how this got past an editor. I also spotted a few small proofreading errors; and I read this over a few evenings so I kept forgetting who was what and who was friendly or otherwise. The roles were pretty standard with an obligatory handsome and single male small town cop. I did like the workings and a few unusual twists, also a warning about modern living. The author gives us too much that has to be explained at the end in lengthy conversations. However, this is the first in the series and she'll probably improve as she gains experience. No strong language or gore; suitable for teens as well as adults. This is an unbiased review. There is no pattern or recipe in the book.

    Unfortunately this book just really wasn't for me. To be fair - I did only read this because it was an online book club choice, so its possible that I'm simply not the target market.

Before you know it someone turns up dead, and Marcy takes it upon herself to solve the case. The problem is, Marcy isn't very interesting or engaging, it's very hard to believe that she would just solve the case, and the solution is just quite dull. The author really overexplains everything, every shift in mood etc is clearly stated, the Marcy's past is presented in long paragraphs instead of revealed gradually through events and interactions (and it's not an interesting past, just a normal past). On the plus side, as someone who enjoys stitching, I thought that side of the novel was pretty well researched, nothing was jarringly wrong as can so often happen when a hobby you love turns up in fiction. The main character wasn't annoying, or stupid, or anything like that, I just didn't buy her as someone who would want to (or manage to) investigate a murder. There is a cast of secondary characters set up who could be interesting in future books, and her relationship with her best friend has more to it than just a bff/agree-on-everything set up. This isn't enough to get me reading the second book in the series though.

    So far I'm not really enjoying this book...I find the main character's life unbelievable.

She says earlier in the book that her mom is rich but there is no explanation for her own ability to throw cash around like crazy, and I'm sorry but unlike a lot of the reviews I found so far, I don't find that believable. I also find the narrator kind of annoying...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I love cross stitch, dogs, and cozies, so I thought this would be a great selection. Unfortunately, it was all too predictable. Girl goes to a small town, opens a shop, finds a dead guy in the storage room, so she naturally investigates. Meanwhile, she's got a couple of guys wanting to date her. Decisions, decisions. Best part about the book was Angus the dog.

The problem is the next day he is found by Marcy dead in her storeroom, and it appears he didn't die of natural causes.  When there is another death Marcy and Sadie appear to be high on the list of suspects. Now Marcy needs to decide if this is the place for her (and her Irish Wolfhound Angus) or should she cut the threads and go back to Corporate America?

    The author explains everything. "She walked through the door by turning the doorknob counterclockwise, even though a doorknob can also be turned clockwise as she discovered once by accident. She put her keys gently on the counter because she didn't like to drop keys violently on the counter. She sat in the small white chair, not the big blue chair, though sometimes she chose the big blue chair not the small white chair." Okay, I'm exaggerating. A little.

    So the first question in my mind was: Does the world need another needlecraft-based cozy series when Monica Ferris is still writing? The answer is, Sure. They aren't all that much alike. Marcy Singer, the protagonist of this one, opened her needlework shop because she wanted to ditch her accountant career. Her mom is a movie-industry costume designer (present only on the phone in this book). And the mystery doesn't focus on any obscure types of needlework, fabric, or yarn.

Her mom is a movie-industry costume designer (present only on the phone in this book). And the mystery doesn't focus on any obscure types of needlework, fabric, or yarn. So it's a good mystery with several twists and two attractive guys interested in the new girl in town. Marcy works on stitching projects and holds classes and tries to figure out what's going on because, well, she's a little paranoid that she might be considered a suspect. That last part's weak but more or less expected in this kind of book. I thought the author made a really interesting choice in the final confrontation, with the protagonist not doing something important, or at least hesitating so that the other character present did it. I kind of wonder how that's going to work out for the series, if it does well enough to continue. Minor side note to the cover artist: When page 5 of the book describes the shop as having a black-and-white tiled floor and maple wood shelving and trim, it's really not a good idea to portray it on the cover as having green carpet and white-painted wood elements. Just sayin'. But at least the dog is correct.

    It's a good first book in a new series. I liked the characters...I even liked including Angus the Irish Wolfhound being frequently mentioned. And for a person who's done a great deal of needlecraft in the past, I enjoyed the setting and the vivid details of the Marcy's shop.

Keeping track kept me on my toes. The police, Ted, played his part, providing a variety of roles. One of which might be a potential boyfriend for Marcy in the future. There's numerous other secondary characters to add interest and you'll also find a couple of deaths, some misunderstandings, deceit, betrayal, financial shenanigans and a few other surprises. It's a cute, lighthearted read and I look forward to the next release.

    Cozy, crafty mysteries are really becoming quite commonplace, so it is hard to find one that really stands out from all the rest. Amanda Lee's _The Quick and the Thread_ is definitely above average, and is worth a look. In an easy read, Lee's heroine, Marcy Singer, comes across as likable and not overly "cute" and perfect, like characters seen in other books. She may have flaws, but really she is an innocent abroad, if by abroad we mean moving from San Francisco to Oregon.

Two men vie for Marcy's attention, but she genuinely is too busy with her new business, her dog, oh, and the dead guy in the storeroom to worry about who is Mr. Right. A believable mystery, even with a decidedly disappointing denouement, Lee shows promise, as does Marcy. I'll visit this town again.

    Cozies are a balm. Especially ones that have a mellow premise like this. Marcy opens her dream shop, Seven Year Stitch, an embroidery specialty shop. Opening night is good, but there's a dead body found in the storeroom the next morning. Everyone is a suspect and Marcy's dream store is a crime scene and closed for business for the time being. This leads Marcy to investigate on her own. The setting is tranquil, not too cutesy. The premise is super, making me want to take up my embroidery hoop Cozies are a balm.

    I loved this book! I was amazed a the way the author created such great characters and Angus was just adorable! The plot was smart and well crafted, even though I had the killer's identity toward the end of the book, but of course this didn't spoil the fun for me.I' m now waiting for the next installment which will be out on February 1st.

    This was a cute mystery about a girl moving to a new town (in Oregon) and opening an embroidery shop. The characters were good and the amount of stitching completed was impressive. This is the first in this series and I would definitely read more of them. One of the romantic interests in the story is a man named Todd who owns a brewpub--how can I resist that?
