After leaving a decade ago, Angie Curtis has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother, who raised her following her troubled mother’s disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder.

The bright spot in Angie’s homecoming is reuniting with her grandmother, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called Mainely Needlepointers. But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Gram and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother’s cold case.

My Thoughts:  I’ve been a fan of Lea’s Antique Print mysteries for some time, so I was excited to learn that she has a new series.

I like this new series as much the other one. I especially like the  characters. It could be because of Angie’s relationship with her grandmother – stories involving grandmothers and granddaughters have a special place in my heart.   Angie’s efforts to solve two mysteries at once and to help her grandmother will keep readers engaged until the end. This series is certainly one I will be adding to my “Always Pick Up A Copy” list.
