Book Description (from back cover):
Comments:A sewing circle newcomer is on pins and needles.
Ever since she moved to Sweet Briar, South Carolina, Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair has been the talk of the tiny town. But she's been so busy at work, winning over the sewing circle, and trying to forget her cheating ex that she hasn't even had time to baste together a pillow, let alone mind local gossip. Then she finds the hometown sweetheart dead at her back door, and everything else falls by the wayside...
Everyone believes the police investigator, who's just fixin' to link Tori to the murder in a love triangle gone bad through a handsome third-grade teacher. To clear her name, Tori will have to rely on her new sewing sisters and stitch together the truth — or be darned...
This is another book that I read about a month ago (during the 24-hour Dewey's Read-a-Thon), and my impressions aren't fresh.
One thing I do remember thinking... the relationship between the sewing circle, that of great friends once your "in", but reluctance and even rejection before that is kind of foreign to me. Unless I think of it like a high school clique.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and intend to read more of the series.
