    Angela Curtis and the Mainely Needlepointers are on a uest to find out the details about a uniue piece of delicate embroidery that was brought to them for analysis by Mary Clough a seventeen year old girl who found it in the attic eaves of her family’s old house At least one of the Needlepointers believes it could date back to 16th century Elizabethan times and may even have been stitched by Mary ueen of Scots If so it’s uite valuable so Angela proposes that the embroidery be secured within an attorney’s office for safe keeping since Mary’s fiancé voices his concerns about it getting lost or even stolen by the Needlepointers But when the safe is broken into and the embroidery is stolen along with some valuable jewellery and the attorney is found dead the Needlepointers find themselves with than a needlepoint mystery on their hands to solve Lea Wait is my go to author for highly intelligent well constructed cozy mysteries Her intricately woven plots are so impressive that I often forget that I’m reading a cozy I can always look forward to acuiring new and interesting facts when I read her books There’s usually some historical facts that factor into the mystery and I always come away feeling wiser about fascinating subjects I wasn’t previously familiar with In Thread and Gone I received a lesson in who Mary ueen of Scots was and how needlepoint was a major part of her life I also learned about Marie Antoinette and several other details that made me think of how much research went into preparing this mystery for the reader’s enjoyment Lea Wait is a heavyweight in this genre If you enjoy a solid mystery but without the profanity and gratuitous violence present in some traditional mysteries I highly recommend that you try Lea Wait’s Mainely Needlepoint series You will NOT be disappointed

    This is an author review so first I want to share how much fun I had doing the research for THREAD AND GONE and then writing it Connecting Mary ueen of Scots to Marie Antoinette and then to the coast of Maine was a challenge but I found amazing ways in which it worked I'll admit I love history but I hope even if you don't you'll enjoy the puzzle And don't forget to read my Author's Note at the end in which I share my own personal connection to this story Of course most of the book is set in Haven Harbor Maine today and there's nothing better than a July week on the coast of Maine So welcome back to Haven Harbor and Angie Curtis and her Mainely Needlepointing friends And stay tuned They'll next be seen in DANGLING BY A THREAD in November 2016

    From the cover Angie Curtis and her fellow Mainely Needlepointers know how to enjoy their holidays But nothing grabs their attention like tying up loose threads So when Mary Clough drops in on the group's Fourth of July supper with a uestion about an antiue needlepoint she's discovered in her family attic Angie and her ravelers are happy to look into the matter Angie's best guess is that the mystery piece may have been stitched by Mary ueen of Scots famous not just for losing her head but also for her needlepointing If Angie's right the piece would be extremely valuable For safekeeping Angie turns the piece over to her family lawyer who places it in a safe in her office But when the lawyer is found dead with the safe open and ransacked the real mystery beginsI have read another in this series not in order This book was like the other in that the main characters are strong and an interesting plot that brought in some history I like the main female lead Angie as the amateur sleuth she had worked for a detective agency before and she gets help from other in her group the Mainely Needlepointers The story can get a little tedious with always pointing out that so many people in the small town worked hours for little pay and were tired But that then lead to having lots of suspects This is a good and fast read cozy mystery and I do plan to read the others in the series

    Author Lea Wait has embroidered mystery and needlepoint to create a masterpiece of a cozyI started this series with book two THREADS OF EVIDENCE and instantly fell for this delightful series Protagonist Angie Curtis and her group of Mainely Needlepointers are a great cast of characters The setting of Haven Harbor Maine sounds like just the sort of place I’d love to visit With THREAD AND GONE author Wait has penned an excellent mystery that kept me rooted to my chair The intrigue started right away and I wasn’t about to stop reading until I knew all the answers With an exciting conclusion that lasted for at least two chapters I was out of breath by the time I finished they story On a side noteI love that each chapter starts with a uote or tidbit They’re fun and interesting to read Make sure to check out the back of the book for a yummy recipe and an excerpt of DANGLING BY A THREAD book four in this wonderful series

    I do enjoy this series and this entry didn't disappoint Of course I may be slightly biased since my pseudonym turned up in the text and my real name was in the author's note As always Lea Wait does a superb job of portraying life on the coast of Maine My only complaint is that I have to wait until November to see what happens next in Angie's life


  6. Trish Trish says:

    On the surface this is very much not a me kind of series But nonetheless I really like it The characters work I like the setting and find it a lot enjoyable than a lot of the other crafty cozy series

    This book ticked all my boxes Needlework? Love it Cozy Mystery? Heck yeah History? Give me You'd think that combining all my major loves into one book would mean an instant 5 star read right? Yeah No Sadly this book was a huge waste of potential The characters were one dimensional and dull the story was barely even a story and the pacing was just off At no point was there a real mystery that our protagonist sorry don't remember her name and don't care enough to look it up actively tried to solve She just seemed to wander around and occasionally someone with important information would talk to her Heck in the climax view spoilershe gets a phone call solving the mystery hide spoiler

    I discovered two brand new cozy mystery series in 2015 that I absolutely love and Lea Wait's Mainely Needlepoint series is one of them Wait has a knack for combining strong characters and intriguing plots filled with fascinating historical tidbits and I find it irresistibleIn Thread and Gone one piece of extremely old needlepoint has possible ties to Marie Antoinette Mary ueen of Scots and all of the Scottish ueen's attendants who were also named Mary It's not as confusing as it sounds Wait also highlights a connection between Maine and France that I'd forgotten and I appreciated the memory jog In addition the author's inclusion of uotes at the beginning of each chapter gives a real sense of the history of needlepointSo many of those on the suspect list are locals living in a poor area dependent on tourism Times are hard Money is scarce Wait does an excellent job of showing us people who are tired of working endless hours to barely make ends meet and she does it in a subtle way to root us firmly in the setting It also makes it difficult to pinpoint the killerAs always Wait's characters shine Level headed smart Angie Curtis previously worked for a detective agency and this makes her one of the best amateur sleuths around This time she's not aided by her grandmother who's on her honeymoon in Canada I did miss her but the elderly Ruth filled in very well One of the Mainely Needlepointers Ruth is crippled by arthritis and helps Angie with online research The fact that Ruth also writes and publishes erotica adds a little spice to a character too many would dismiss simply as a crippled old womani think you can see by now why I enjoy this series so much There are three books in the series so far and I've read all three this year something that I very very seldom ever do All I can say is bring on number four

    The Mainely Needlepointers receive an old tapestry from Mary Clough to learn about its history Angie Curtis takes the stitching piece to her lawyer so it can be put in a safe There is story about the needle work was done by Mary ueen of Scots; if so it is very valuable Later the lawyer is found strangled to deathand the contents of the safe missing Angie and friends search to find answers to the uestionsDisclosure I received a free copy from Kensington Books through Netgalley for an honest review I would like thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book The opinions are my own

    Thread and Gone the newest installment of the Mainely Needlepoint mystery series is easily as good or better than its predecessors Lea Wait knows how keep readers enthralled on multiple levels In Thread and Gone a local lawyer is murdered and everything in her safe both jewelry and a potentially valuable piece of needlework is stolen On another level there is also the mystery of the origin of the needlework itself delving into the history and the possible connection of the piece to Mary ueen of Scots and Marie Antoinette While some of the historical connections within the novel are fiction Lea Wait's research adds depth and interest to the novel It’s difficult to say which mystery is fascinating Angie Curtis puts her PI skills to good use in her search for the missing piece of embroidery and the killer The knowledge of her friends and fellow needlepointers comes in handy as they are able to research the origins of the embroidery and the links to the Clough family The two mysteries blend well as do the skills of Angie and her friends I also liked the inclusion of uotes from pieces of needlework at the start of each chapter They add to the uniue flavor of this delightful cozy series Whether you are an avid fan of needlework or simply enjoy reading an entertaining cozy mystery you can't go wrong with picking up a copy of Thread and Gone 55 Thread and Gone is available for preorder and will be released December 29 2015 I received a copy of Thread and Gone from the publisher and netgalleycom in exchange for an honest review Crittermom
