Cathy Elliott in her new book, “A Stitch In Crime book coverA Stitch In Crime” Book Twenty-Five in the Quilts of Love Series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Thea James.

From the back cover:   Assault, larceny, anonymous threats. Who knew quilt shows could be this dangerous?

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.

All Thea James wanted to do was expand her antique business. It never occurred to her that the quilt show would turn out to be so dangerous. I have news for you it never occurred to me either. This book is packed solid with mystery. The assault on Thea’s friend and the stolen brooch as well as the stolen quilt which may be very valuable. But it does not stop there as Thea cannot seem to find anybody to help and they seem to be acting in a mysterious manner. There is even a threat on her cat. Get ready for a mystery that will keep you guessing until Ms. Elliott reveals all to you at the end. Then you give out a satisfied “AAh”. This is a truly enjoyable read and I look forward to more from this very talented author.
