About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
Thea's first quilt show is literally coming apart at the seams!

Thea James has accepted an assignment as co-chairperson for Larkindale's first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she's already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.

Mary-Alice Wentworth, a much-loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea's dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick-off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?

When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale's reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town's investment in the quilt show before Mary-Alice is attacked again… with far worse results.

I really hate to say this, but of all the Quilts of Love books I have read, A Stitch in Crime by Cathy Elliott is my least favorite (but that doesn’t mean I still didn’t enjoy reading it). Elliott’s main character, Thea James, ends up at the center of a quilt-show mystery and must discover the culprit before the big event at the end of the week. Yet, this mystery did not have the suspense (or the romance) I expected, and instead, I simply felt curiosity at the culprit’s identity. With its slow pace, A Stitch in Crime is a pleasant quilt-filled read. Though different than I would have liked, it entertained me nonetheless and I did enjoy the relationships between characters and the bits of witty humor here and there. Fans of the Quilts of Love series, looking for a calm mystery, may want to pick this one up.
