Mystery Cozy

Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer gets hung up on a tapestry that may lead to sunken treasure and be the motive for murder....

When Marcy’s friend Reggie, Tallulah Falls’ local librarian, asks her to teach an embroidery class as therapy for domestic abuse victims, she gladly agrees. One of the women wants to flee from her abusive husband but is afraid to leave her elderly father-in-law behind. And she thinks Marcy can help.

The elderly gentleman shows Marcy a tapestry his grandmother made, which he believes reveals the location of pirate treasure off the Oregon coast. He’ll move to a shelter—provided Marcy takes the tapestry to keep it safe. But when the police arrive the next day to escort him out, they find the old man murdered and the house ransacked. Does someone want that treasured tapestry desperately enough to kill for it?

Re: Thread On Arrival

Congrats on the latest release. I've been on a real cozy kick since the fall and I've really enjoyed this series so far...despite my complete lack of interest in sewing or embroidery. I have taken a couple of cake decorating classes so I have more in common with Daphne.

If I win, I'd like Nook (ePub).
(Anne Muller 2:32pm January 15, 2013)

I look forward to reading your latest.
Marjorie Carmony 2:38pm January 15, 2013)

It's been a couple of months since I read a cozy. Love
embroidery and the idea of treasure and an old tapestry
potentially showing its location.
G. Bisbjerg 2:42pm January 15, 2013)

I'm all for bringing respect to sewing!
Lisa Elwood 2:44pm January 15, 2013)

I have been a sewer for years and have tried to pass it on to
children, grandchildren and many of their friends.
Looking forward to reading your latest book.
Mary Hay 2:54pm January 15, 2013)

Trying to keep the embroidery and sewing alive in our family, this story sounds like a great read.
Pamela McPherson 2:58pm January 15, 2013)

Thread on Arrival sounds really interesting! A tapestry, a
mystery, and maybe a treasure equals a good read.

Carla Carlson 4:27pm January 15, 2013)
