After leaving a decade ago, Angie Curtis has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother, Estelle, who raised her following her troubled mother’s disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder.
The bright spot in Angie’s homecoming is reuniting with Estelle, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called Mainely Needlepointers. But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Estelle and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother’s cold case.
My review of Twisted Threads:
This first in a new series will win you over from the start. You will meet Angie Curtis and her friends as they come together for crafting fun.  As Angie and her grandmother try to find out how Angie's mother died the group is hit with another murder and Angie has to try to clear her name as suspect. You will be drawn in by this crafty whodunit that will keep you wanting to read just one more chapter until the end. What a terrific start to a great series, eagerly awaiting the next one!
