A Stitch in Crime by Cathy Elliott

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

A Stitch in Crime by Cathy Elliott
A Quilts of Love Series
ISBN: 9781426773655
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: 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.
My review: I have read quite a few in this series because I like that they are all centered around quilts. The mystery that was a part of this story was fun to read about and made the story interesting Although this book did not move as fast as most of my mysteries I have read it did keep me guessing until the end as to who bonked Mary-Alice. I would have liked to get to know the characters a little bit more as well. This book also carried the Christian theme though out the entire story. All in all I thought this was a nice book. Even though this is a part of a series they are all stand alone books, the common theme is the quilts. If you are looking for a nice mystery with no dead bodies with a Christian themed back story then this book is for you.
