Thread Reckoning by Amanda Lee
Marcy Singer, owner of the Embroidery shop in Tallulah Falls, is approached by Cassandra Wainwright about her antique wedding dress. Cassandra wants some embroidery and jewels added to areas that have yellowed. Marcy accepts the commission but is startled when the following day she is confronted by the body of he future mother-in-law outside her shop. The police inform her that the jewels she was given to attach to the dress were not fakes but worth close to $100, 000.
Worried that the jewels were the reason for the murder and that the murderer may think she has more, Marcy sets out to find the murderer.
The mystery was fun, but I wish there had been more needlework involvement.
