A Stitch in Crime | Cathy Elliott

Today I am reviewing A Stitch in Crime, the newest Quilts of Love book by Cathy Elliott.

Below is a brief synopsis:

Thea’s first quilt show is coming apart at the seams!

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 Thoughts:

I have a personal affinity for the Quilts of Love series…

I actually have a great many of the series, so when a new one is introduced, I run to order it — and so far I haven’t been disappointed. This series is a great addition to my library!

A Stitch in Crime begins so innocently. Thea James is running into problems even before the First Annual Blocks on the Walk Quilt Show even begins! At the Quilt-Without-Guilt Guild Christmas potluck it’s just one thing after another.

And what’s going on with her best friend!

Cathy Elliot introduces us to some very realistic, yet diverse characters — those who are important to the community and those who aren’t… those who work hard and those who don’t… and those who are causing the problems — will the truth ever come out in time?

Romance… assault… larceny… anonymous threats… attempted murder…

I really like that this town acts like a small town… you know what I mean, where everyone knows everyone else — and it brings a feeling of contentment. This is a great cozy mystery. All in all, another great addition to the Quilts of Love series!
