Blog Tour- Thread and Gone by Lea Wait

Today's blog tour is Thread and Gone( A Mainly Needle Point Mystery Series) by Lea Wait. If you love Needle point or just cozy mysteries you will love this one.

Thread and Gone
(A Mainely Needlepoint Mystery)
3rd in Series
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Kensington (December 29, 2015)

When a priceless antique is stolen, murder unravels the peaceful seaside town of Haven Harbor, Maine…

Angie Curtis and her fellow Mainely Needlepointers know how to enjoy their holidays. But nothing grabs their attention like tying up loose threads. So when Mary Clough drops in on the group’s Fourth of July supper with a question about antique needlepoint she’s discovered in her family Colonial-era home, Angie and her ravelers are happy to look into the matter.

Their best guess is that the mystery piece may have been stitched by Mary, Queen of Scots, famous not just for losing her head, but also for her needlepointing. If they’re right, the piece would be extremely valuable. For safekeeping, Angie turns the piece over to her family lawyer, who places it in her office safe. But when the lawyer is found dead with the safe and ransacked, the real mystery begins. . .

This series is another one of my favorites. It's a Fourth of July party and Angie and her friends are getting ready for the fun.They got more than they bargained for when a mysterious needlepoint piece shows up and the lawyer is found dead after receiving the piece for examination. Angie knows that she has to find out who killed him and what value the piece has. This is a charming and enjoyable read. With it's plot twist and strong story line you will be hooked from the start.
