Review: Thread End (An Embroidery Mystery #7) by Amanda Lee

Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer is about to have the rug pulled out from under her....

Marcy can’t wait to see the new exhibit at the Tallulah Falls museum on antique tapestries and textiles, including beautiful kilim rugs. But her enthusiasm quickly turns to terror when, the day after the exhibition opens, she discovers a dead body behind her store, the Seven-Year Stitch, wrapped up in a most unusual fashion.

The victim appears to be a visiting art professor in town for the exhibit. Did someone decide to teach the professor a lesson, then attempt to sweep the evidence under the rug? Along with her boyfriend, Detective Ted Nash, Marcy must unravel an intricate tapestry of deception to find a desperate killer.

*~*~*~*~* Review *~*~*~*~*

As a fan of Amanda Lee's Embroidery Mystery Series, I was looking forward to Thread End.  I knew, from my past experiences with Ms. Lee, that the mystery would be phenomenal, the story would be beyond entertaining, and she'd further develop the characters that I've grown fond of. 
Amanda Lee is a wonderful writer.  She writes a murder mystery like Agatha Christie, making you believe that you know who the killer is until the very end, only to have the rug pulled out from underneath of you and steer you in a completely different direction.  It keeps the story exciting, and Thread End was one of my favorite Embroidery mysteries yet!  

I loved being able to revisit Marcy and crew in Tallulah Falls, and I love the creativity of the theme of this story.  So whether you're just looking for a good read, or you're already a fan like myself, this book is a great experience for any reader.  

Rating:  5 stars 

I received a paperback copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All conclusions reached are my own.
