Title: Death Threads (Southern Sewing Circle #2)
Author: Elizabeth Lynn Casey
Publisher: Berkeley Prime Crime Mystery
Release Date: March 2010
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Source: Loan SIL
The members of South Carolin’s Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle enjoy their gossip, but the new Yankee librarian, Tori Sinclair, is really giving them something to talk about.
Tori Sinclair is basking in the warmth of her new circle of friends. That is until local author Colby Calhoun reveals an unflattering secret about the town’s historic past. He soon finds that when you fray the stitches on the ladies’ cloak of southern hospitality, things are bound to fall apart…
Then Colby disappears, leaving a trail of blood but few clues to his possible murder. Tori looks to her sewing circle to help her cut through Sweet Briar’s tight weave of ancient feuds and alliances to find him. But when she sees a pattern of townsfolk’s age-old southern pride standing in the way of justice, she knows it’s time to unravel the mystery….
Well I will definitely be reading book one. I love the charm that the book portrays in the southern small town.
Tori (the new town librarian) seems to have a knack for being around when things go awry. But lucky for all around her she has a keen mind for solving the mystery.
When local author Colby Calhoun publishes some new facts about the small town (moonshining), people take offense and he disappears. Most citizens are not pleased about the new facts about the town and blame Colby. In the beginning they are not willing to look for him, but Tori won’t give up trying to solve the mystery.
Surprisingly the “bunny lady” is the key to everything.
