The Stitching Hour by Amanda Lee

I think most of know by now that cozies are an addiction of mine and my favorite kind are the craft themed ones. It should come as no surprise that I had already read the prior eight books in the Embroidery Mystery series and was excited to see the ninth part, The Stitching Hour by Amanda Lee available. 

From the back of the book:

In the latest mystery from the bestselling author of Wicked Stitch, the future of Marcy Singer’s embroidery shop is dangling by a thread…

Marcy’s shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, is one year old this October so it’s time to party in little Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Aside from the Halloween decorations and festive stitching kits and patterns, Marcy’s got all sorts of celebratory swag, including Seven-Year Stitch key rings and goodie bags.

Unfortunately, her new neighbors might spoil the revelry. An eccentric couple has opened a haunted house next door, and all that screaming will certainly scare off customers. But there’s even more to be frightened of after a local waitress is found dead on the sidewalk with mysterious markings on her neck—and one of Marcy’s key rings beneath her. With no time to hem and haw, Marcy must act fast if she hopes to restore the peace to Tallulah Falls…

My thoughts:

First, I have to admit I was already in love with this series and all of its characters. I easily got into this story as Halloween and all things Halloween are fun to me. Marcy was, as always, fun to follow along with and the clues that were given made it fun to solve. I enjoyed seeing all of the characters again and love watching as the relationships continue to evolve. 

The pacing makes this the kind of book that you will want to stay up reading, telling yourself that lie all readers tell themselves, just one more chapter. I told myself that right up until I read the whole thing in one night and now I am eagerly awaiting the next part. You will want to grab yourself a copy as soon as possible because this is one series you don't want to miss out on.  

Take some time to browse the other great mysteries available from Berkley Prime Crime. While you are there, you can sign up for the newsletter so you never miss a new release. I must warn you though, after browsing my wish list is longer than I could probably read. You can also connect with them on Twitter where can happen across a fun giveaway as well.
