A Stitch in Crime (Review)
This review is for the book "A Stitch in Crime" by Cathy Elliott. This is another book in the Quilts of Love series. I enjoy this series because they all have the same theme of quilting, but they are all written by different authors in many different genres. This is the first one I have read which is a suspense and romance theme.
In this novel, Thea James has volunteered to co-chair her town's first quilt show. Unfortunately, from the very beginning, things begin to go wrong. People are getting hurt, antiques are being stolen, and several people in the community are acting rather odd. Thea doesn't exactly want to play detective, but agrees to at the request of one of her dearest friends. Fortunately, everything comes together in the end and the mystery is solved without anything too incredibly harsh happening.
This was a good story and I enjoyed it. There were a couple of times that I felt like the characters had a background in another story that I hadn't read. I also felt that the storyline with Thea and her friend Renee was thrown in there for extra fluff and was unnecessary. I did still enjoy the book, though.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
