Twisted Threads by Lea Wait
Angie has been called home by her grandmother. After all this time, her mother has been found. Unfortunately, she's dead and has been for a long time...
Kensington Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you). It will be published January 6th, so you can grab a copy then. This is the first book in a new cozy series.
Angie knows her mother was murdered and, based on where the body was hidden, everyone assumes the murderer is the dead storage unit owner. Angie is not sure she agrees but how do you find evidence so long after the fact?
While she's working on that, she finds that her grandmother has started a needlepoint business and the man who was promoting their goods has not paid them for months. She's a private eye, so she's ready to go track him down.
Before the story is over, there are two murders, child abuse in the past is revealed, her grandmother is getting married and Angie has to make sense of it all. It was an interesting tale and the members of the needlepoint club are fascinating. This was a busy mystery with some odd pieces that eventually fit together. I'll be watching for the next in the series and will see where Ms. Wait takes Angie then. I'm just glad Angie has found some friends.
