Suede to Rest
by Diane Vallere

This is a fast paced story that has entertaining characters, great dialogue and a well-written cozy mystery. I was drawn in right from the beginning.

Ms. Vallere does an excellent job introducing us to Poly, her family history and the story behind “Land of A Thousand Fabrics”… I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next installment, Crushed Velvet when it comes out.

When Poly Monroe was little, she loved playing in her family’s textile store. But after a fatal family tragedy, Land of A Thousand Fabrics was boarded up and Poly never expected to see the inside again. Now, as inheritor of the long-shuttered shop, she’s ready to restore the family business. However her two new kittens, Pins and Needles, aren’t the ones causing a snag in her plans…
Not everyone wants Poly back in San LadrĂ³n, especially a powerful local developer pressuring her to sell—and leave town fast. But even when the threats turn deadly, she’s not ready to bolt. Because Poly is beginning to suspect that the murder behind the shop is tied to a mystery in her family’s unsettled past that she’s determined to solve…before her own life is left hanging by a thread.
My Review:
I enjoyed reading this book and was hooked from the start. Poly Monroe is a strong character and her two little kittens will win your heart. The plot will keep you captive with great characters and a town painted so vividly you will feel like you are there. I didn't want this book to end. This whodunit will keep you up trying to find out who the killer is.
