BOOK REVIEW: Thread and Gone by Lea Wait



Thread and Gone (Mainely Needlepoint #3)
by Lea Wait (Goodreads Author)
Paperback, 290 pages
Published December 29th 2015 by Kensington


Goodreads synopsis:
When a priceless antique is stolen, murder unravels the peaceful seaside town of Haven Harbor, Maine. . .

Angie Curtis and her fellow Mainely Needlepointers know how to enjoy their holidays. But nothing grabs their attention like tying up loose threads. So when Mary Clough drops in on the group's Fourth of July supper with a question about an antique needlepoint she's discovered in her family attic, Angie and her ravelers are happy to look into the matter. 

Angie's best guess is that the mystery piece may have been stitched by Mary, Queen of Scots, famous not just for losing her head, but also for her needlepointing. If Angie's right, the piece would be extremely valuable. For safekeeping, Angie turns the piece over to her family lawyer, who places it in a safe in her office. But when the lawyer is found dead with the safe open and ransacked, the real mystery begins.

4 stars

This is the third book in the Mainely Needlepoint series.

When someone asks Angie Curtis and the Mainely Needlepoint team about the authenticity of an old piece of needlework she found in her attic, Angie entrusts her family lawyer with it. She puts it in her safe one night. But by day break, she is dead and the needlepoint is missing.

I love to cross stitch, so a mystery centering around needlepoint is right up my alley.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this whodunit. And I have to admit that I had no idea until the killer was revealed. I love it when a mystery can stump me.

This is a highly recommended series from me. I love it. I speed read through it just trying to navigate all the twists and turns. Definitely check this book out if you love any sort of crafting.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
