I ve recently decided to challenge myself to finishing series I started in the past and left unfinished I tend to do this when I have too many NetGalley books that need to be read and then I don t come back to the series I m glad I picked this one back up because the first installment Twisted Threads is actually uite goodThe main character Angie Curtis returns home up because the first installment Twisted Threads is actually uite goodThe main character Angie Curtis returns home her small hometown in Maine after the body of her missing mother has been found There s definitely a dark side to this cozy mystery which might not be for every cozy fan The book deals with the mysterious disappearance of Angie s mother nearly 20 years ago and her body being found in a chest freezer in a rented storage facility owned by a now deceased resident of the town There are a couple of emotional scenes where Angie is looking back on her childhood which also deals with another tough issue that is uite a bit intense than you will find in a typical cozy I wasn t daunted by this and felt it added a very well written dose of realism to the storyAngie decides to stay in her hometown due to the second and main mystery plot of the book Her grandmother is in need of her PI investigative skills when her small crafting business is the Her grandmother is in need of her PI investigative skills when her small crafting business is the for a scammer When the scammer ends up dying in Angie s grandmother s bathroom the police point their fingers at them Angie must find the real culprit before her grandmother is arrestedI can t say how much I enjoyed this book The characters are incredibly developed and have very interesting back stories I love that they aren t portrayed as silly or inept Angie is a real bad ass when it comes to sleuthing and I loved seeing that I will most certainly be continuing the series This book has been sitting in my TBR pile for far #too long and i am very glad that #long and I am very glad that finally read itI was reading another book by the same author in another series and I really enjoy her writing The mystery is well written and paced With multiple suspects it had me guessing until the very end There were two murders within the book and the older one brings up ugly town secrets that no one wants to believe until the killer finally confesses Have already ordered the next in this series Highly recommend I loved the little needlepoint related uotes or sampler examples which started each chapter of Twisted Threads It s nice touch which lured me into reading an extra chapter or two each time I read itI really like the way the two plotlines one hot case one cold were woven together by the end It s a little slow to get going but really gears up toward the conclusion I really liked that Angie had Returning to the uaint coastal town of Harbor Haven Maine a place she once called home Angie Curtis finds her memories aren’t all uite pleasant onesAfter leaving a decade ago Angie has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother Charlotte who raised her following her mot.

"always like mixing "like mixing cold case with a new one I did not see the ending coming with the cold case I liked the characters and the setting and I look forward to seeing how Angie fits in with the Mainly Needlepointers Good start to the series This was a fantastic and gripping read that had me reading all day and night ust to see how the two mysteries were going to unfold I liked the idea for a cold case mystery being the reason for the main character Angie to come back home That made a big difference than an usual broken marriage or brake up with a boyfriend story line that most cozy mysteries have It might have had a darker story line for a cozy because of what happened to cause the cold case but it was interesting to see how both cold case and present case came together at the end I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series I m looking forward to reading of the series when they become available in the future Pro I love when main characters in cozies have a ob that makes their murder investigating make some sense so I was thrilled that Angie had been a private investigator in Arizona It made her investigating make sense I loved Harbor Haven It s a pretty town filled with interesting people but it s also a town that s been hit hard by changes in the lobster industry and it s struggling to survive That was portrayed very well without over doing it There were really 2 different mysteries going on but it didn t feel overwhelming or chaotic The characters were interesting and even the ones I didn t like were believable The pacing was good and even though I figured out the why before the book was through there were still plenty of twists and turns to keep me interestedCon For the most part I loved this book but I did find Angie s interactions with Officer Pete Lambert a little strange I liked that she took the time to deal with her pistol carry permit but then her calling and dealing with him over her mother s murder in a vaguely flirtatious way didn t seem to fit her character Overall I really enjoyed this mystery but I m even excited to see where the series goes There s a lot of potential for some great mysteries and I look forward to visiting Harbor Haven and the Mainely Needlepointers soonFull Review 2 12 stars rounded up This One Was A Bit Darker And Gritty was a bit darker and gritty a cozy which isn t bad but wasn t what I was expecting from the cover Yes I m Lea Wait the author of TWISTED THREADS the first in the Mainely Needlepoint series And I m very excited about this new series The protagonist Angela Curtis known as Angel to her grand. Lled 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 cas. Plausible reason to be an amateur sleuth and the skills to pull it off she used to work for a PI it makes it a bit realistic She s very sensible and doesn t fall into the heroine pit traps of putting herself into dangerous situations without appropriate backupI felt that the secondary characters everyone except Angie and her grandmother Charlotte were a little 2 dimensional There s plenty of potential with some interesting characters the elderly erotica writer the ex sailor with a poison garden the Ouija board collecting minister who s dating Charlotte but none Of Them Popped For them popped for Maybe this will develop through the seriesI didn t really get what was going on with Angie and policeman Phil It didn t feel like a romance angle there was something awkward and mysterious the author hinted at which was basically forgotten about Even if this is something which runs across the series I think some kind of resolution was needed Dollycas s ThoughtsThis is the first book I have read by Lea Wait I didn t know about her other series I was on searching for books to add to my Books Coming Soon page and the cover ust pulled me right in The book arrived and story picked up right where the cover left offAngie is uite a woman as is her grandmother Charlotte To survive having your motherdaughter disappear without a trace is ust tragic Then all these years later her body is found so very close to her home That is heart Reading this as a group read with the Cozy Mystery Goodreads group This is good I am going to like the series I can tell already I finished Twisted Threads today and liked it so much The characters are interesting and it prompted me to go to Hobby Lobby and buy a needlework kit I can t wait to read the next book Here is what I DIDN T like1 Gram is only 65 and yet she is portrayed as being as ancient at least in her 80s it would seem I know her granddaughter sees her that way but most people I know including myself who are 65 or even older are capable and spry unless they have health issues2 The minister collects Ouija boards and occasionally communes with spirits I didn t see his denomination mentioned but the ministers I have known would eschew such activities as being demonic according to the Bible and would only be communing with the Holy SpiritOther than those fairly major gripes I loved the bookI must now order some items Ms Wait mentions Wool Wax Cr me Tracy Chevalier s historical novel The Lady and the Unicorn Jo Ippolito Christensen s The Needlepoint Book and Hope Hanley s 101 Needlepoint Stitches Thanks for piuing my interest Lea Wait 35 stars I rea.
