Good clean cozy mystery. The main character inherits her grandmother's home in Maine. Her grandmother was well known for her embroidery skills. She finds a piece in the attic that has people embroidered on it which was not typical of her grandmother's work but it is her grandmother's work. She works with others in the Maine community to find out who the mysterious lady in the embroidered work is.

I figured out from the beginning who the mysterious lady was but did not know the reason behind it until the end. Would have liked a little more action in book. This is a series of books called Annie's Attic. One thing that bothers me is that these books are not going to be written by the same person. That bothers me. When I start a series I want the series to be written by the same person.

I thought this book was awful. The writing is amateurish, the storyline is weak and repetitive, and I wasn't at all invested in the characters. I'm truly surprised by the positive reviews for this one.

"The Lady in the Attic" is just a nice non-murder, soft mystery. Annie Dawson looses her husband and then her grandmother who had been living in Maine where Annie had spent her summers as a child. She leaves Texas and her daughter and grandchildren to return to Maine to settle her grandmother's estate. The mystery starts when Annie finds a recent cross stitch that her grandmother had left in the attic. It contained an image of a lady and unlike any of her other work. The mystery is about who the lady in the cross stitch actually is. It is a sweet story of how old friends reconnect and how new friends are made. The entire summer and experience helps Annie move beyond the loneliness of loosing her husband. I was surprised at the non positive reviews. It is a nice, engaging story but definitely not hard core mystery or suspense.
