Author Lea Wait has embroidered mystery and needlepoint to create a masterpiece of a cozy!I started this series with book two, THREADS OF EVIDENCE and instantly fell for this delightful series. Protagonist Angie Curtis and her group of Mainely Needlepointers are a great cast of characters. The setting of Haven Harbor, Maine sounds like just the sort of place I’d love to visit. With THREAD AND GONE, author Wait has penned an excellent mystery that kept me rooted to my chair. The intrigue started right away, and I wasn’t about to stop reading until I knew all the answers. With an exciting conclusion that lasted for at least two chapters, I was out of breath by the time I finished they story! On a side note…I love that each chapter starts with a quote or tidbit. They’re fun and interesting to read. Make sure to check out the back of the book for a yummy recipe, and an excerpt of DANGLING BY A THREAD, book four in this wonderful series!

A viral Ebook Thread and Gone This is an author review -- so, first, I want to share how much fun I had doing the research for THREAD AND GONE, and then writing it. Connecting Mary Queen of Scots to Marie Antoinette and then to the coast of Maine was a challenge, but I found amazing ways in which it worked. I'll admit I love history, but I hope even if you don't, you'll enjoy the puzzle. (And don't forget to read my Author's Note at the end, in which I share my own personal connection to this story.) Of course, most of the book is set in Haven Harbor, Maine today .. . and there's nothing better than a July week on the coast of Maine. So welcome back to Haven Harbor, and Angie Curtis and her Mainely Needlepointing friends. And stay tuned! They'll next be seen in DANGLING BY A THREAD, in November, 2016!
