After leaving a decade ago, Angie Curtis has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother, Charlotte, who raised her following her troubled mother’s disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder.

The bright spot in Angie’s homecoming is reuniting with Charlotte, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called Mainely Needlepointers. But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Charlotte and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother’s cold case.

bookreview
Twisted Threads by Lea Wait is the first book in the brand new cozy series called Mainely Needlepoint. I adored this book! The characters were charming and the settings were delightful. I liked Angie right from the beginning and quickly fell in love with her Gram, Charlotte. I was hooked by the first sentence of this book.

Angie comes back home after her mother’s body is discovered. Her mother had been missing for several years and most people in the town assumed she had just run off with a boyfriend. Angie has worked with a PI in Arizona. She plans to use her knowledge to not only help solve her mother’s murder, but also to help her Gram find the man who has taken advantage of her needlepoint business and not paid her or the other needlepointers.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. Twisted Threads by Lea Wait is a definite page turner that had me staying up late to keep reading. I liked that there were two mysteries going on simultaneously. The characters and the mystery plot kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. The story was fast-paced and I liked the edginess of Angie. This is well-written and I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series!
