It's hard to imagine anything bad ever happening in picturesque Haven Harbor, Maine--until a famous face rolls into town and unthreads some very dark secrets. . .

Angie Curtis and the Mainely Needlepointers are all too familiar with the Gardener estate. The crumbling Victorian mansion, known as "Aurora," has been sitting vacant for nearly twenty-five years--and some say it's haunted by the ghost of Jasmine Gardener, the teenage girl who died there in 1970 under mysterious circumstances...

Harbor Haven is abuzz with excitement when Hollywood actress Skye West decides to buy Aurora and sell off its furnishings. And Angie is intrigued when Skye asks her to appraise the estate's sizable collection of needlepoint pictures. But the more she examines the pieces, the more they seem to point toward Jasmine's murder--and the murderer--and it's up to her to stitch the clues together. . .

Keeps You Guessing Till The Very End (Tuesday, August 25, 2015)
Reviewer: Mary Angela Young

Two things made me want to read this book, first the needlepoint. I love to cross-stitch. And second, the main character's name is Angie, the same as mine! You just can't go wrong when you share the same name as the main character.

I loved this book from the very beginning. Angie and her friend Sarah get to explore an old antique home. How cool is that? Just the thought of getting to see the history of an old house like that is so intriguing to me.

And boy does Lea Wait keep you guessing as to who killed Jasmine all of those years ago. She actually leaves you a clue, but then so many other options come up that you kinda of overlook the obvious. Sneaky for sure! Loved it!!

This is actually the second book in the series as well. But you can easily read this as a stand alone. I haven't read the first book in the series, Twisted Threads, but had no problem following the story at all. I can't wait to go back and read the first one though. This is a great series for sure!
