When a Bollywood starlet is found murdered all suspicion is on Beverly, the costume designer. What does this have to do with our main character Marcy, you might be asking yourselves. Well Beverly just happens to be Marcy's mother. Set in quiet Tallulah Falls; Beverly suggested the location for the filming of a big Bollywood production. The whole town was excited until the tragedy struck. There was some tensions between the diva starlet and Beverly over costume choices and decisions so the town has decided that Beverly is the main suspect. It turns out there were many people that didn't like the starlet so the list of suspects is long and Marcy is up for the task so from her little embroidery shop she will solve the crime.
This is a fast read, great for these hot summer days. I read this while summing myself at the beach this weekend; a light read just right for helping to get your mind off the stresses of the day. Amanda Lee, author of the Embroidery Mystery series, has created an interesting mystery with a little bit of a love story and of course the mention of Angus the dog. Angus is, by far, my favourite character in this book. So pick up Cross-stitch Before Dying today, sit back and enjoy.
