Cross Stitch Before Dying by Amanda Lee was an excellent cozy mystery filled with yummy sounding food, fun crafts, hunky men, and a cute dog. In other words, it had everything a cozy mystery should have. I gave this book 4.5 out 5 stars solely for the fact that I was able to discover who the murderer was fairly early in the book. However, that may just be a fault of my own since I've been reading and watching mysteries since I was babysat by my great grandmother and forced to watch Murder She Wrote and Matlock as a young child. Truthfully, this was a really enjoyable book and I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed this book, and revisiting it's characters. Marcy's mom comes to town with a movie set and what seems like a dream for some turns into a nightmare. A body is found and fingers are pointed at Marcy's mom. The only problem I had with this is first the book is hard to describe, I felt that I couldn't get a flow in parts. Marcy's mom who is usually a strong woman just seemed to flake out in this one, she just didn't seem in character for me, but this was minor, I still enjoyed her. I also don't need reminded on what Marcy is working on constantly, just say she's working on her project, I don't need mauve pillowcase every time, once again minor irritation. The mystery was excellent, I guessed right with one part but couldn't tie it in. The explanation at the end made sense. It really had me second guessing and bouncing back a forth with suspects, and there were enough to choose from. I will definitely continue on with this series.
