The Stitching Hour by Amanda Lee: Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 
The Stitching Hour: An Embroidery Mystery by Amanda Lee, to be released November 3, 2015 by NAL

I am not an embroiderer but when a book begins with a dog, I get interested right away. 

Opening sentence:
I reached down and patted the head of my Irish wolfhound, Angus. As only two years old, he still had a lot of puppy in him, but he was mannerly and well behaved. The patrons of my embroidery shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, loved him. 
Book description: Marcy Singer's embroidery shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, is one year old this October so it’s time to party in little Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Unfortunately, an eccentric couple has opened a haunted house next door, and all that screaming will certainly scare off customers. But there’s even more to be frightened of after a local waitress is found dead on the sidewalk with mysterious markings on her neck—and one of Marcy’s key rings beneath her. Marcy must act fast  to restore the peace to Tallulah Falls…(publisher)

What book are you waiting for to be published this fall? 


  1. A dog...count me in. I used to stitch as well, but more importantly...a dog. Thanks for sharing it and it will go straight on the TBR.

  2. Harvee, I like the dog aspect of this as well. Thanks for the book spotlight!

  3. I love dogs. Maybe I'll add this to my cozy tbr list.

  4. I have the first one in this series and I'm really looking forward to getting to it. This sounds really great!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
