A Stitch in Crime: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

Thea’s first quilt show is 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.

About The Author:
Author and speaker Cathy Elliot nourishes her night‑owl habit by creating cozy mysteries and more on her trusty laptop in Anderson, California. Like the protagonist in her new mystery, Cathy is an avid quilter. Besides collecting (too much) cool fabric, she also enjoys hunting for antique treasures.
My Review:
The one thing that I have absolutely adored about the Quilts of Love series is reading books by so many different authors and their specific genres. The books in the series don't follow all the same style of writing or genre, so its great for those of us that like a variety in our Christian fiction reading. I also love that each book revolves around the story of a quilt. As a crafter, I know the hard work that comes with making memories and I love that the authors of this series build each story around a quilt. 
Now to A Stitch in Crime. It is a fast-paced, who-dun-it that will have you reading late into the night! It was fun, with likeable characters and a story line that flowed nicely. I read the story in only a few hours on a Saturday night, and it was the perfect book for that! I look forward to reading more from this author, as well as more from this series. 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
BUY IT: You can purchase A Stitch in Crime online through Amazon, as well it is available at your favorite local retailer of Christian fiction.
