When murder strikes the small town of Tallulah Falls, embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer isn’t afraid of getting down to the knitty-gritty to clear her name....

For most small-business owners in Tallulah Falls, the upcoming Renaissance Faire is a wonderful way to promote their specialty shops. For Marcy’s nemesis, Nellie, and her sister, Clara, it’s an opportunity to finally put Marcy and her shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, out of business. Apparently the sisters like to make grudges a family affair and have set up competing booths right next to Marcy’s at the Ren Faire.

When Clara is discovered dead in her own booth—strangled by the scarf she had almost finished knitting—Marcy becomes the prime suspect. Now she has to do whatever it takes to keep her reputation from unraveling—and get to the bottom of a most deadly yarn....

bookreview
Wicked Stitch by Amanda Lee is the 8th installment in this cozy series set in Tallulah Falls. Marcy finds herself in an uncomfortable situation when Nellie’s sister Clara opens a shop right next door to Marcy and begins selling needlepoint and knitting supplies. Nellie and her sister Clara are hoping to put Marcy out of business. It’s no secret that Nellie, Clara and Marcy do not get along.

When Clara is found murdered, Marcy is a natural suspect. She has to try (with the help of her hunky policeman boyfriend, Ted) to clear her name. Marcy, her friends, and Ted are all great characters that I enjoyed getting to know during the course of the book. Marcy isn’t really a hardcore sleuth, out finding clues, but she does try to keep her ear to the ground and figure out what she is able to do to prove her innocence.

This was a fun cozy and I love the setting of Tallulah Falls. I felt like I was visiting old friends. I also really enjoyed that this mystery took place during the Renaissance Faire in town. That added element of learning about different types of clothing and embroidery, as well as the booths and activities at the Faire really made this an enjoyable read for me.

  1. This book sounds like a fun read. I have always wanted to attend a Renaissance Faire, and get dressed up in costume. It seems like a fun activity.

  2. One of my favorite paperback series. I’m not into Renaissance Faires or the middle ages, but I’m sure I’ll still enjoy the book.
