Fashion turns killer in the latest novel from the national bestselling author of the Threadville mysteries…
Threadville, Pennsylvania, is famous for its fabric, needlecraft, and embroidery, so it’s only natural that it would become the home of the Threadville Academy of Design and Modeling. While Willow Vanderling has certainly never wanted to be a model, here she is, voluntarily strutting her stuff in a charity runway show in outrageous clothing, all to support the Academy’s scholarship fund.
But the lascivious, mean-spirited director of the academy, Antonio, is making the fashion show a less-than-fabulous affair. After Antonio plays a shocking prank on Willow and her friends that doesn’t exactly leave the ladies in stitches, he mysteriously winds up dead—and someone is trying to pin the blame on Willow.
Now, she must do whatever it takes in order to clear her name, even if it means needling around in other people’s secrets…

My Review:
This is a great setting for a mystery. The author did a great job of weaving the hints and clues into the story just like you would weave a blanket. I was not quite sure what the en product would be, but I definitely liked the progress. I really liked the puns and lingo that the writer used as well. I was looking for clues and puns all while trying to figure out the characters secrets. The ending had me double guessing myself. I also enjoyed reading an embroidery pattern/ project. I am giving this book a 4/5. i was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
