    Threads of Evidence

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Loved the needlepoint references throughout the story. A mystery with suspence, endearing characters and is a worthy follow up to book one in the series.

    Very enjoyable

    This is the first book I've read by this author, and I was pleasantly surprised, as I had expected something less complex. The continuity is great, the characters -- both principal and secondary -- are well-defined, and the conclusion neither predictable nor simplistic. I look forward to reading the first book in the series (and this one did not spoil that one!) and those to follow.

    Old and New Mysteries in Maine

    I enjoyed this cozy mystery. I liked the characters, the setting and the needlework info at the beginning of each chapter. Angie has moved back to Maine and is helping her Grandmother run Mainly Needlepoint. An actress has purchased an empty mansion to restore. She enlists Angie to restore some needlepoint pictures and an old murder. Stirring up the old murder brings up old wounds and new crimes. Even though the police are unsure about the crimes the amateur sleuth does work with police. My one complaint is that the mystery was way too easy to solve. Enjoy this quick light read

    wonderful 2nd installment

    Picture a cozy small seaside town on the coast of Maine filled with colorful characters and we have the setting of this suspenseful cozy murder mystery. This is the second book in the Mainely Needlepointers Series and I must say I greatly enjoyed the book. This can be read as a stand-alone. Lea Wait has our main character, Angie Curtis investigating the forty-five year old death of Jasmine Gardener. Jasmine was the daughter of the town’s rich family that owned the estate, Aurora. Each summer the family hosted an end of season party for the entire town prior to their return to New York, however at this last party tragedy occurred. Jasmine died and her mother insists she was murdered, and continued to insist until she died, which left Aurora empty and falling into disrepair. Suddenly the house is sold to an actress from California and things really begin to happen as the actress, Skye West and her son, Patrick, are in town to solve the mystery of Jasmine's death and restore Aurora. The author did a wonderful job of filling this story with colorful characters; a murder mystery that someone does not want solved, attempted murder, arson, and secrets, long-held secrets. A part-time investigator, Angie is managing her grandmother's Mainely Needlepointers, and partners with Sarah in restoring old needlepoint work to its original splendor. To top-off all Angie has on her plate, her Grandmother is marrying Reverend Tom in three weeks and they have a wedding and a bridal shower to organize; now she has a murder to solve and stop another murder from occurring. She cannot resist helping with Sky’s investigation into Jasmine’s murder, she is hooked and must solve the mystery as mysteries abound in this story. The plot was consistently interesting, and never lagged or bogged down. The suspense was kept at maximum peak throughout the book. The way Ms. Wait revealed the identity of the murderer was a stroke of genius. I thought I had it all worked out several times but found I was not correct. I loved the needlepoint sayings before each chapter; it added an extra element to the story. This is an easy read that anyone that enjoys cozy mysteries will love. I look forward to the next installment. I received this book from the publisher and Netgalley in return for an honest review.

    Threads of Evidence

    There was a lot of extraneous details that were unimportant to the mystery itself. Boring read. Not sure needlework is all that exciting either.
