    Maine Murder Mystery

    Every town has their traditions, disabled residents, and secrets and Haven Harbor Maine is no exception. Angie Curtis joins her townsfolk for their annual Blessing of the fleet where they remember those lost at sea and prepare for the upcoming season. During the festivities she meets one of the town’s disabled residents and a young boy who lives with him. Angie is enjoying getting reacquainted with the residents in her community and meeting new ones. The next day the young boy finds his friend murdered and Angie can’t bear the thought of the frightened young boy being blamed for a murder he didn’t commit, so she gets into sleuthing mode and takes a long hard look at who would want to kill this harmless man and why. While there are no clear suspects at the start, Angie begins finding that the dead man had quite a few secrets he was keeping and she needs to determine which one of them would kill to keep their secret hidden. The story was well written, the characters developed and enough red herrings to make you question yourself more than a few times as you continue to read. This is the first book of the eight book series I have read and it was perfectly fine as a stand alone. The other seven will go on my list of books to read.

    Another Great Mystery!

    Ike Hamilton has been a fixture in Haven Harbor, Maine for many years. He’s the one who collects cans and bottles from his neighbors and most of the businesses in town to supplement his disability checks. But, some people believe that he needs to go away, and someone took care of him permanently. The main suspect in his murder is a runaway teenager who found Ike’s body. Can Angie find out the truth before someone else is killed? Some authors have the ability to grab a reader and take them to another world, learning about different people, places and hobbies. The reader forgets about their troubles and enjoys the story. Ms. Wait has this amazing gift. I loved this book, its characters and plot were both absorbing and thought-provoking. What would we do if a homeless person was in trouble? Would we step out and help him/her? Would we take him/her in and give them a home? And, what if he/she were a suspect in a murder? I think that Angie showed a lot of courage to stand up and help the homeless teen get out from under the murder investigation and find the real culprit. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Charming cozy mystery!

    Thread on Arrival is the eighth novel in A Mainely Needlepoint Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading Twisted Threads first. It will provide you with background information on Angie and the major secondary characters. It is hard to believe that Angie has been in Haven Harbor for less than a year. She is managing Mainely Needlepoint, dating Patrick West, has made some good friends and has her adorable black cat, Trixi. In Thread on Arrival, we are introduced to Ike Hamilton who has fallen on hard times. He wants to live out the rest of his days in Haven Harbor and, when his home was demolished for safety reasons, he took up residence in the garage. Ike is an honorable man with principles. He does not like seeing people harmed or being taken advantage of by those in power. Angie feels bad that she was unaware that he collected bottles and could have assisted him. When Leo becomes the prime suspect, Angie wants to assist the young man who has had a difficult life. All the regular characters are in the Thread on Arrival (Gram, Sarah, Anna, Dave, Ruth, Reverend Tom) as they get ready for tourists to soon descend on the town and work on needlepoint projects for Mainely Needlepoint. I enjoy the descriptions of the projects and the sampler quotations at the beginning of each chapter along with descriptions of the sampler. Sarah Byrne is Angie’s best friend and owns an antique shop. We get historical information on political memorabilia (political buttons are valued by collectors) and learned the history of embroidered “pockets” (not the type in the seams of our clothes). There are lovely cozy moments as we follow Angie about her day-to-day activities. I appreciated that we got to know more about Dave Percy in this installment (he has a unique poison garden). The mystery was thought out with multiple viable suspects. I was able to identify the killer early in the story, though, based on previous books I have read, and I had a strong suspicion as to why. The secondary crime was more unique. I like how the reveal was done and was happy to see this killer taken down. There are recipes at the end of the book which includes Dave’s lasagna and Angie’s special birthday cake. Come along to Haven Harbor for good food, antiques, needlepoint, clear skies, and a pesky murder or two in Thread on Arrival.
