Thread Reckoning A Really Enjoyable Read!

So I picked up Thread Reckoning by Amanda Lee on the advice of one of the Facebook Groups I belong to and I am so glad I did. I read this book in record time, having a hard time putting it down.
I am most admittedly a Cat person but a few months back I had this incredibly real dream where I had moved to a beach house near a light house with my family and adopted an Irish Wolfhound whom we named "Art", Imagine my surprise when the main character in the Embroidery Mystery has one just like the one from my dream! The main character Marcy also stands the same 5 feet tall I if only I could do Needle work or Embroidery I would think she was my long lost twin....
 As I contemplate adding an Irish Wolfhound to the family Squirrel looks less then impressed with the idea...

I am really glad I check out The Long Stitch Good Night while I was at the library as well. I am now going to have to pick up the rest of the series and read them while I wait for Thread End to arrive from The Book Depository!
I can not wait to track down the rest of these books from my local library and will order what I can not find!

Tempest In A Teapot. A Truly Wonderful New Series!

I am so very thankful to Fred Yoder, who is a member of an online cozy group I belong to and he recommended I Pre Order Tempest in a Teapot to me in November 2013. 
Fred has great taste in authors and books and he pointed me in the right direction with this one. 

Amanda Cooper's new series is set in Gracious Grove, an idyllic small town where you will find two very different Tea Rooms and liquor is not served in town. Gracious Grove is a Dry town, in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York and a place I would very much like to move to!
 From the first chapter I was transported to life in "GiGi" (the town's nick name) and had a vested interest in the lives of each of the colorful characters.
I will admit I read this book much slower then most because I wanted to savor every drop!
Each morning I looked forward to continuing my visit in "GiGi" outside with my breakfast and tea and late into the night.  Main Character Sophie was so likeable and each of the characters introduced I enjoyed and came to care about!
I really feel like this is a book and series tailored just for me. I am so excited when I find a series that feels like an old friend from the first chapter. This book even made me consider joining or starting my own teapot collecting group, let me know if you want to join with me!  I can not wait to find out when the next book comes out.

As I live in Canada I order all my books through The Book Depository, that way I never pay shipping.

My cat Squirrel and I are anxiously awaiting the second book in this Teapot Collector Mystery series which I hope will be out very soon!
