This was truly an interesting mystery ---amazing what all was going on with twists and turns throughout the story. I enjoyed the characters, their history and how it fit in today --- a good mystery! I also enjoyed the bits and pieces of history about needlepoint at the beginning of each chapter!
Love this new series of Lea Wait's! You can tell from the detail that she researches whatever the theme is as in this case, vintage needlepoint. Each chapter had quotes taken from vintage needlepoint samplers, mostly done by young girls. Old sayings in them make it all the more intriguing. A bit of history inserted that you don't even realize you are learning about vintage embroidery.
It is even more interesting since I live in Maine and the area references are oh so familiar. Some names are the same and some are slightly different but easy to guess the inspiration. Have read book 2 and looking forward to the next.
Great cozy writer. Also enjoy her antique print series.
