The Quick and the Thread by Amanda Lee (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday)

I know I whine a bit about cozy mysteries having the heroine as shopkeeper-turned-super-sleuth so many freaking times .... but .... it still ranks right up there towards the top of my favorite genres list and I let the ridiculousness of it all slide. It's like my everlasting love of Hallmark movies. This stuff just doesn't happen in real life, but it's totally okay in books. Even better when those books are then made into Hallmark movies and, so far, I could totally see Gayle Trent (writing as Amanda Lee)'s Embroidery Mystery series fitting in  well on the small screen. It's not real gritty or gripping or strenuous on the little grey cells. It's basically fluff, but sometimes that's exactly the kind of book I need. Thanks to the main character being a classic movie loving bibliophile who also knows her way around an embroidery hoop (even though she gets some stitch names confused), I'm thrilled to now have yet another go-to series for when those times strike!

I know, I know ... "First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" from Bibliophile by the Sea is on vacation ... but I'm used to doing these two together so I'm just going to stick with it. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.


  1. I love this series. And yes sometimes you just need something light and fluffy don't you?

  2. I'm not sure about the opening - but I really enjoyed the quote. I hope you're enjoying this one, Karen:)

  3. Love the teaser. It got my attention more than the intro.
