Tallulah Falls is getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day and so is Marcy Singer as she tries her hand at a little Irish embroidery called Mountmellick embroidery. During a St. Patrick’s Day party at Todd’s pub, The Brew Crew, something goes terribly wrong when a man is found shot dead in the back room. The dead man is a frat brother of both Todd and Blake and they both were alone in the room when the murder occurred, but neither of them can remember what happened, and are pretty sure they didn’t kill him. Then they learn only their fingerprints were on the gun. All clues point at Blake and Todd but there has to be a mistake. These friends are going to need the “Luck of the Irish” and some help from Marcy to get out of this one. Ted is not going to be pleased as she puts herself right in the middle of other investigation. Dollycas Thoughts Another winner from Miss Amanda Lee!!! This is one of those cases where you know there is much more to the story. Marcy knows her friends are innocent so there is something everyone is missing. While working on her project in the sit-in-stitch square she keeps running through all the information and clues and works to stitch together what really happened. These are down-to-earth characters everyone can relate to and feel a kinship with. I have no trouble picturing myself in Todd’s pub having a beer, at MacKenzies’ Mochas with the gang having a muffin, or at the Seven Year Stitch learning new embroidery techniques, while petting Angus. Small town USA is alive and well in these embroidery mysteries, but there is always a dead body or two, and a mystery to keep us needled until the final twist of the thread. This a fun mystery that I couldn’t put down and read all in one sitting. I still don’t know which man is right for Marcy but I am sure the author has much more planned for Todd, Ted, Marcy and all the other residents of Tallulah Falls. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!! Keep them coming Amanda, your readers are waiting!

this is book three in this series. marcy singer is spending the evening with her friend sadie so sadie's husband can go to a frat reunion. one of the boys is murdered and sadie's husband, blake, as well as marcy's friend todd are prime suspects. to follow the clues marcy must dig into the past of the frat boys. it's a frantic chase through the maze that will culminate in the solving of this murder. the characters are intriguing, the mystery compelling, plus there is a little romance. make sure to check tis one out!

I really enjoyed this book. When murder happens, Marcy jumps in to help look for suspects when the ones that are being looked at are two of her best friends. This is especially hard when they are reluctant to talk. My only drawback to this book is how characters seemed to blow hot and cold, some of it was understandable but others seemed a little out of character. I also wasn't thrilled with Marcy blabbing a few things that I thought she should have kept to herself. That being said, these were minor to me. This story will take you on a lot of twists and turns through present as well as past that kept me guessing until the end. Some of it I figured but there were a few times that I was surprised that made me second guess. I love Marcy's relationship with her mother, although she isn't in there much she adds a foundation that gives Marcy strength. I also loved some of Marcy's reactions to a few things, a few of them were things that I think that is how I would have reacted, so it was very realistic to me. Of course, you've gotta love Angus, how can you go wrong with a Wolfhound named Angus O' Ruff? Definitely continuing on with this series.

While reading this, I was thinking what rating to give it. There's moments where I like it and moments where I thought the book wasn't as good as the first three. Though Marcy seems to be at her most emotional in this one. Well everyone. Mostly because of the love triangle which honestly, at first I didn't mind it, but think this far in the series, might want to get that arc resolved. And you know, communication with the three would be nice, what with the one is assuming this or the other is assuming that, etc. I don't know. 3 stars for the first half and 3.5 for the second half, once the mystery picked up. Anyway, the mystery as the story went along was interesting I guess. Yay for Angus though. While I didn't love this one, I thought it to be a good addition to the series.

I have read all of Ms. Lee's books and hate to see them end. Although, I do wish they had better proofreaders.

I love this series and I esp. love this author, her wrting keeps growing and so do her characters. Age old mystery dead body two suspects that where in the room and neither suspect is talking. So who shot Mr. Body in the office? Read it to find out
