{{Book Review}} A Stitch in Crime(A QOL book)

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 atourist 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.

*My Review*
I wanted to like this book. I really did. When i signed up for it I was really excited and thought I would really enjoy it. I've read several of the "QOL" books and I've really enjoyed most of them, but this one just ended up being a disappointment. I didn't care of the character of Thea, not really sure. I guess it's because she seemed a bit spoiled to me. I don't know. 

Maybe it's not the book at all, maybe it's what I was expecting the book to be. I was half expecting some sort of romance and there wasn't any. This book is a basic amateur sleuth whodunit type book.

The story itself moves along quickly, and I did enjoy it..but in the end, there just wasn't enough to keep my attention.

So, if you are looking for an amateur sleuth meets quilting kind of book, you might want to check this one out. Just because it isn't a book I care for doesn't mean that my readers won't enjoy it! 

Author and speaker Cathy Elliott 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.
