  • Delectably Good!

    As soon as I started reading Stitch, Bake, Die! the tenth book in Lois Winston's Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series, I knew I was going to be for a treat. What's not to like in a story that mixes cooking competitions, sewing challenges, corruption and murder? This is my first in this series, although it is book ten and I got to meet Anastasia Pollack, a woman with a lot on her plate. A busy lady working as crafts editor for a magazine, Anastasia is organising a sewing workshop with a presentation and practicals, as well as judging a needlework contest for the New Jersey branch of the Stitch and Bake Society. Her best friend, Cloris McWerther who is the cooking editor is doing likewise for the culinary section. When atrocious weather affects the three-day mid-week event taking place at the plush Beckwith Chateau Country Club, Anastasia and Cloris are forced to stay overnight, so they take adjoining rooms. When one of the retired female entrepreneurs, Marlene Beckwith winds up dead and the police are unavailable as they are dealing with emergencies caused by the freezing weather, Anastasia and Cloris don their sleuthing hats... It was marvellous being in the pockets of Anastasia for the duration of Stitch, Bake, Die! and following the thought pattern of this smart, opinionated sleuth. Her determination was admirable, although her inclination to be reckless gave me palpitations! I loved Lois Winston's descriptions of the food combinations in the novel and as someone who enjoys watching cookery competitions on TV, these aspects were fascinating, particularly the references to a Croquembouche. Mystery wise, there were a good few suspects in there, all of whom had motives and it was tremendous fun trying to decide who the culprit might be. With plenty of wit and humour, Stitch, Bake, Die! has sufficiently whetted my appetite to read the others in the series and I'm really looking forward to my next session with Antasasia, her significant other Zack, her belligerent mother-in-law, Lucille, Cloris and the rest of the quirky characters. With a cracking finale too this really was the crème de la crème of a cozy read. Thanks to Great Escapes Book Tours and Lois Winston for a complimentary copy of this novel at my request. This review is my unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
