Back Cover:
Opening an Embroidery specialty shop in quaint Tallulah Falls, Oregon, was a big deal for Marcy Singer. But it was nothing compared to coming face-to-face with a crafty killer.

Marcy is the proud owner of the Seven-Year Stitch, an embroidery specialty shop in the sweet small town of Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Her best friend, Sadie, owns the coffee shop down the street, and here Irish wolfhound, Angus, is practically the shop’s mascot. But trouble strikes when an elderly woman brings an antique piece of embroidery to Marcy…and promptly dies of unnatural causes.

Marcy is convinced that the antique sampler holds a clue to an even older crime and that somebody may have killed hide it. Now it’s up to Marcy and her pals – two-legged and four-legged – to unravel this mystery.

My Review:
This book is actually better then her first (The Quick and the Thread). Marcy is once again caught in the middle of foul play at the shop. Mrs. Larson comes with a wonderful antique sampler and dies there in there on the spot. Marcy with the help of all her friends (Sadie, Ted, Todd, her mother and her trustiest friend Angus) try to solve the mystery.

“Find Ivy” the hardest part is figuring out what or who Ivy is …….
