I ve recently ecided to challenge myself to finishing series I started in the past and left unfinished I tend to A Wartime Nurse do this when I have too many NetGalley books that need to be read and then Ion t come back to the series I m glad I picked this one back up because the first installment Twisted Threads is actually uite goodThe main character Angie Curtis returns home to her small hometown in Maine after the body of her missing mother has been found There s Split definitely aark side to this cozy mystery which might not 35 stars I really enjoyed this story but I always like mixing a cold case with a new one I When Stories Clash did not see the ending coming with the cold case I liked the characters and the setting and I look forward to seeing how Angie fits in with the Mainly Needlepointers Good start to the series This book has been sitting in my TBR pile for far too long and I am very glad that I finally read itI was reading another book by the same author in another series and I really enjoy her writing The mystery is well written and paced With multiple suspects it had me guessing until the very end There were two murders within the book and the older one brings up ugly town secrets that no one wants to believe until the killer finally confesses Have already ordered the next in this series Highly recommend This was a fantastic and gripping read that had me reading allay and night just to see how the two mysteries were going to unfold I liked the idea for a cold case mystery being the reason for the main character Angie to come back home That made a big ifference than an "Usual Broken Marriage Or Brake "broken marriage or brake with a boyfriend story line that most cozy mysteries have It might have had a arker story line for a cozy because of what happened to cause the cold case but it was interesting to see how both cold case and present case came together at the end I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series I m looking forward to reading of the series when they become available in the future I loved the little needlepoint related uotes or sampler examples which started each chapter of Twisted Threads It s nice touch which lured me into reading an extra chapter or two each time I read itI really like the way the two plotlines one hot case one cold were woven together by the end It s a little slow to get going but really gears up toward the conclusion I really liked that Angie had a plausible reason to be an amateur sleuth and the skills to pull it off she used to work for a PI it makes it a bit realistic She s very sensible and oesn t fall into the heroine pit traps of
putting herself into angerous situations without appropriate backupI felt that the secondary herself into Perfect Girl Evolution Vol. 6 dangerous situations without appropriate backupI felt that the secondary everyone except Angie and her grandmother Charlotte were a little 2imensional There s plenty of potential with some interesting characters the elderly erotica writer the ex sailor with a poison garden the Ouija board collecting minister who s ating Charlotte but none of them popped for me Maybe this will evelop through the seriesI Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society didn t really get what was going on with Angie and policeman Phil Itidn t feel like a romance angle there was something awkward and mysterious the author hinted at which was basically forgotten about.

Even if this is something which runs across the series I think some
