A Stitch In Crime: Quilts Of Love Series

About The Book: 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.
About The Author: Now retired from her day job as the Library Webmaster at a local community college, Cathy is a picky antique collector, an avid quilter, a musician, and ardent reader. Between activities, she polishes her dote-on-the-grandkids-skills. Crafting cozy mysteries and more, Cathy enjoys all aspects of the writer journey. Especially late in the evenings, when she turns into "Night Writer!" Or is that fly-by-night writer? When not tending to her own projects, she loves to swap chapters for emergency critiques at a local hangout.
My Thoughts On The Book:  All in all it was an okay read. It was not my favorite of all the Quilts of Love series books I have read to date, but it was okay. If you are looking for an Agatha Christie kind of mystery you will be very disappointed. The story line was a bit confusing. It was an attempt at a mystery and that was all it was. I was disappointed that quilting did not appear to be the main plot. This was my first book by Cathy Elliot and I plan to try out another one to see if it will change my mind.
