    The Perfect Cozy Mystery ! Highly enjoyable

    "A Thread Of Darkness" is the 2nd in the "Queen Bee Quilt Shop" mystery series by favorite author Sally Goldenbaum. I have read the first in series and found it very enjoyable and a fun mystery read. I do highly recommend the series for your reading enjoyment. I enjoyed my second visit to Crestwood Kansas and the Crestwood Quilters. Mrs. Goldenbaum brings the small town in Kansas to life and creates vivid charcters that are a joy to read about. The quilts the group creates are fun to read about as they create specialty quilts. In this 2nd in series our Protagonist Po and the Crestwood Quilters are working on a quilt for The French Quarter, the new French restaurant in town . The French chef falls under suspicion when his wife is murdered. The quilting group is convinced he is innocent and sets out to piece together the mystery and find the real killer. This was a well crafted story with a pleasing sleuth to the conclusion. I love the charcters and the devoted friendships of the quilting group in this lovely small town. I look forward to returning to the next in series. Thank you to the publisher and to Net Galley for the opportunity. This is a mystery series I highly recommend for all that enjoy crafting and crafting based mysteries.

    Smaller Town Midwestern Cozy Mystery

    This cozy mystery takes place in a smaller Kansas college town. It centers around quilters and quilts, with a touch of French cooking. The story is full of twists and sadness. I enjoyed this novel and will enjoy the entire series. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Great Book

    A Thread of Darkness by Sally Goldenbaum is the second installment to the Queen Bees Quilt Shop Mystery series. This book starts where the first left off, continuing the character development of the group of lovely and relatable small-town Kansas gang from the first novel. I loved learning more about Po, Kate, PJ, Max, Phoebe, Selma, Susan, Eleanor, Maggie, and Leah. The main characters that continue are Po and Kate, however we get to see more of PJ, Max, and a little more of Maggie. The murder mystery component with the French chef, Jacques and his wife, Laurel, make for an excellent who-dun-it. I loved the interweaving of the character histories, interactions, and developing relationships. Those components can make or break a series. These characters are realistic, relatable, and like-able...they are also interesting and worth the investment. I enjoyed the first book, but I enjoyed the second even more. I can’t wait till the next one comes out. 5/5 stars. This has been posted to GoodReads upon completion of the book.

    Charming cozy mystery

    A Thread of Darkness is the second novel in A Queen Bees Quilt Shop Mystery series. A Thread of Darkness is easy to read and progresses at a nice pace. There is a good flow as the story moves from scene to scene. While A Thread of Darkness can be read alone, I recommend reading the series in order. It will help you to learn the characters and keep them straight. Po Paltrow, Kate Simpson, P.J. Flanigan, Maggie Helmers, Eleanor Canterbury, Phoebe Mellon, Max Elliott, and Selma Parker are in this charming cozy mystery. Po is the main protagonist. Po is an active woman in her 60s who is happy that her goddaughter, Kate has returned to Crestwood. Kate is settling into town and working as a substitute teacher. She has discovered a passion for photography and Kate is very talented. Kate is also dating P.J. Flanigan, a local police officer. The Crestwood Quilters are working on a quilt for The French Quarter, the new French restaurant in town that offers a mouthwatering bouillabaisse. The author continues to develop the characters. They are a friendly bunch who reach out to newcomers in town. The characters are relatable and the dialogue realistic. Crestwood is like other small towns with cozy shops and gossip runs faster than butter on a hot stack of pancakes. I like the authors vivid descriptions especially of the quilts. There are many cozy moments with quilting, cooking, coffee drinking, and eating. The mystery had a couple of suspects, good clues and misdirection. I like that there were various incidents after the initial murder. This action made the story more intriguing. However, I knew the identity of the victim, killer and patsy before the murder took place. A Thread of Darkness is a pleasing cozy mystery with an affable French chef, a fishy murder, rampant rumors, an applique quilt, and a group of curious quilters.

    An Interesting Whodunnit

    Poe and her quilting crew are at it again. Someone has killed the wife of one of their good friends and the ladies just can't help but get involved. A fun, interesting, and well-written cozy mystery. I'm really enjoying this series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias or remuneration.
