Teaser Tuesday 351: Better Off Thread

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week's teaser is from a cozy mystery by Amanda Lee, Better Off Thread, part of her "Embroidery" mystery series.

"Hey, Marce," she answered. "I can't talk right now. I'm on my way to the jail."

(Chapter Three)

Series: Embroidery Mystery #10

Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer must help her friend get untangled from the skein of a crime. . . .

Marcy is busy helping her customers make hand-crafted ornaments at her embroidery shop, The Seven-Year Stitch. But despite the Yuletide bustle, when her friend Captain Moe asks for her help, she can’t refuse—especially when the favor is to play the elf to his Santa for sick children at a local hospital. Despite the ridiculous outfit, Marcy finds herself enjoying spreading cheer—until the hospital’s administrator is found murdered.

Although the deceased had plenty of people willing to fill her stocking with coal, evidence pins the crime on Moe. Now it’s up to Marcy, with the help of her police boyfriend, Ted, and her Irish wolfhound, Angus, to stitch together the clues to clear Moe’s name—before someone else winds up crossed off Santa’s list for good. . . .
