A Stitch in Crime {a Litfuse Blog Tour review}

I have read a number of books in the Quilts of Love series, and all have been light, pleasant reads.  A Stitch in Crime by Cathy Elliott is the latest.

Clearly, from the title, this one is a mystery.

From the publisher:
Thea's first quilt show is coming apart at the seams!

Thea James has accepted an assignment as co-chairperson for Larkindale's first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she's already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.

Mary-Alice Wentworth, a much-loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea's dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick-off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?

When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale's reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town's investment in the quilt show before Mary-Alice is attacked again . . . with far worse results.

Learn more about this book and the series at the Quilts of Love website.
I read this while traveling, and it was a very nice diversion.  Elliott drew me in pretty quickly.  Thea was pretty likable, with a best friend who is now being snarky and rude to her, a guy she is interested in, and she is a bit over her head as co-chair of the quilt show.

Boy, could I ever relate to that.

Somehow, I seem to find myself in positions that I feel completely unqualified to tackle. 

Of course, Thea's situation involves things like crime scene tape.  I can't say I tend to get that over my head.

This is not my favorite Quilts of Love title, but the story kept me guessing. 

Don’t miss the newest Quilts of Love book, A Stitch in Crime by Cathy Elliott. Thea's first quilt show begins to fall apart at the seams. Will she be able to piece the mystery together and save the town’s investment in the quilt show before another attack happens . . . with far worse results.
