Review: Night of the Living Thread (Threadville Mystery #4) by Janet Bolin

Zombies, killer dresses, and ancient curses prove that Halloween in Threadville can be sew spooky…

It’s early October, and hordes of visitors have descended on the tiny, celebrated village of Threadville, Pennsylvania, to attend a Halloween crafts fair, a zombie retreat, and the wedding of Edna Battersby—dear friend to Willow Vanderling, owner of the chic machine embroidery boutique, In Stitches.

As a friendly prank for Edna’s wedding, Willow and the rest of the Threadville gang have fashioned an overly extravagant hoopskirt, complete with lights and music. But in a bizarre turn of events, the garish gown is implicated in a mysterious lakeside murder.

Now Willow must follow a trail of glow-in-the-dark thread, delve into ancient Egyptian curses, and creep through a haunted graveyard to unearth a killer—before she becomes the next fashion victim.

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

This delightful addition to the Threadville mysteries is creative and so much fun.  With a Halloween theme, the author is able to take more liberties with a spookier storyline, perfect for that time of year!  The heroine of the story, Willow, is a wonderful sleuth and her supporting cast rounds out the story beautifully.

I loved the quirkiness of this book.  From a Halloween themed craft fair, to a gathering of "zombies", Night of the Living Thread was simply unforgettable.  The mystery kept you guessing until the very end.  And the wedding we've all been waiting for was a perfect scenario for murder.  So brilliant, Ms. Bolin!

As a fan of this series, I will always recommend it to other readers.  So do yourselves a favor, and treat yourself to Night of the Living Thread.  You'll be so happy that you did!

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.
