A Stitch in Crime Kindle Fire Giveaway!

New from Abingdon Press’ Quilts of Love series | A Stitch in Crime
Thea’s first quilt show is coming apart at the seams!
Thea James has accepted an assignment as co‑chairperson for Larkindale’s first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she’s already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.
Mary‑Alice Wentworth, a much‑loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea’s dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick‑off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?
When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale’s reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town’s investment in the quilt show before Mary‑Alice is attacked again . . . with far worse results.

Like the protagonist in her new mystery, Cathy is an avid quilter. Besides collecting (too much) cool fabric, she also enjoys hunting for antique treasures.

MY THOUGHTS AND VIEWS OF THIS READ:  This is the last book in the Quilts of Love Series.   Come join Thea as she plans for the town's very first Quilt Show.   What can go wrong?   Things start going amiss at the opening reception where the guest speaker and judge does not show up.

What is happening? What are they really after?  Will they discover the treasure that really lies behind the Quilt owned by Mary-Alice the town's matriarch.


Case of the Jewel Covered Cat Statues


Buckley and Bogey, Cat Detectives, find their next big case with the Buckley and Bogey Cat Detective Agency to be their most complicated ever! It all starts when someone hides a mysterious package in their Mom’s antique store – in the middle of the night! Of course, the boys find it, and put it in a nice, safe place, until they can open it . . . and, find the rightful owner. But that’s when a whole bunch of suspicious people show up in St. Gertrude, and every single one of them seems to be after that package! Holy Catnip! Plus, everything happens just when a priceless, jeweled statue collection goes on display at the St. Gertrude Museum. Missing from that collection are two jewel covered cat statues that disappeared almost a hundred and fifty years ago.
But soon Buckley and Bogey wonder how long those statues will stay missing. Because this is one case that really keeps them on their paws! From a trip to the Museum, and to an old church for the Blessing of the Animals; and from dinosaurs to diamonds, they end up dodging shady suspects the whole time. It sure helps to have their friends with them, especially when the bad guys make a beeline for boys. That’s because it becomes very clear, very quick — the priceless cat statues aren’t the only cats those crooks are after! Holy Mackerel!

MY THOUGHTS AND VIEWS OF THIS BOOK:  Are you looking for a book to jump start your kids reading?  Are they animal lovers?  Do they love mysteries?  This is just the book for them.

This is just a great enjoyable read.  It brings to light adopting animals, especially cats from the shelter.  Also, it brings to light the plight of lots of animals that have special needs that are homeless and need loving homes too.  Come join the adventure.

He wants to save his business. She wants to be a professor. But are they asking for more than they can really have?
After a flood damages the looms at Zenus Dane’s Philadelphia textile mill and the bank demands loan payment, Zenus turns to his aunt for help repurposing his textiles. Trouble is . . . his aunt has already been hired by the lovely yet secretive Englishwoman Mary Varrs.
Eager to acquire his aunt’s quilt patterns, Zenus attends the summer Quilting Bee, a social event his aunt has uniquely designed with the secret purpose of finding Zenus a wife. However Zenus only has eyes for Mary, but Mary has no such desire for him.

MY THOUGHTS AND VIEWS OF THIS BOOK:  This is another Quilts of Love Series book that I really liked.   It is out of the box genre for me and it took a while to get into the book, but once I got into it, it was hard to put down.    How would you feel if all your hard work was for nothing?  Join Gina Welborn as she takes you on the journey of Mary Varrs as she works hard to prove herself to her family and find a career where very little is offered to women.   Zenus Dane comes to his aunt for help in saving his textile business only after he agrees to let her play matchmaker for him.  Will Mary be able to find employment as a professor in her field of choice where so much is limited as far as women are concerned and will Zane find the match that his aunt approves of for him.  Or will love be found when you least expect it and with the one that you would never expect to fall in love.  Read more to find out about the answers to these questions.
