Thread and Gone by Lea Wait was a cozy mystery and history lesson all rolled into one. This book from the Mainely Needlepoint Mystery series easily stands on its own which is always a plus for me. Angie Curtis is the main character in this needlepoint themed mystery. What starts with research on a piece of antique needlepoint quickly turns into something more when a local lawyer is murdered.
The author weaves in information about needlepointing as well as history lesson on Mary, Queen of Scots. I have only a passing interest in needlepoint, but the book was held my attention. The characters are easy to like and quickly felt like old friends. While not one of my all-time favorites, I would read more of the series if given the chance.
disclosure: I received this e-book from NetGalley but was not otherwise compensated for this review. All opinions are my own!
