    Cross Stitch Before Dying by Amanda Lee was an excellent cozy my

    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.
