Tired of the corporate world in the city, Willow
Vanderling leaves her job and heads to Threadville
in Elderberry Bay, PA where she opens her own little
embroidery store called In Stitches. Her best friend
Haylee also has a store in Threadville so they are both
determined to make their businesses work but Willow
has problems with the town bully and things just get
worse when he is found dead in her backyard.
Willow and Haylee work together to find out who
they can trust and who is behind the murder. The
characters are entertaining and full bodied and the
background of the stitching community is heartwarming
and endearing. Threadville is a place I definitely want to
visit again - too bad it can only be done in a book!
