This week’s teaser comes from Cross Stitch Before Dying by Amanda Lee, a cozy mystery set in a small town in Oregon.

Suddenly, I heard the shots. They sounded no louder than firecrackers being discharged. Bam! Bam! Bam! Then silence.

(Chapter One)

Series: An Embroidery Mystery #6

Marcy’s mom, Beverly, is the costume designer for a lavish Bollywood-style production, and someone suggests Tallulah Falls as a great place to shoot part of the film. Everyone at the embroidery shop and around town is in a flutter that a glamorous movie production is taking place in their midst. But when the star of the film is found murdered, the police suspect Marcy’s mom, who made it no secret she did not care for the diva’s attitude.

Marcy might as well issue an open call for suspects, because the star had a long list of enemies. To save her mom’s career and keep her from accessorizing with handcuffs, Marcy and her friends will need to stitch together the clues to catch one craft killer, who may have designs on Marcy next . . . .
