Overview

Down south, the holidays mean family—and for Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair, family means the Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle. It may not be a white Christmas, but it’s one she’ll never forget—no matter how hard she tries…

Instead of spending a nice, relaxing Christmas with her fiancé, Tori Sinclair has been drafted into Sweet Briar’s holiday Decorating Committee. And the season has brought sad tidings as well: Charlotte Devereaux, a sewing circle founding member who unraveled after her storybook marriage fell apart, has passed away.

Charlotte’s last days were foggy, distressed, and feverish… except for the sketches she produced. One detail in particular jumps out at Tori and leads to a shocking revelation: Charlotte’s husband didn’t leave her—he was murdered! And as she gets closer to the truth, Tori will discover that just about everyone in town has got notches on the naughty list this year.

Fairly entertaining series with well executed plot lines. Occasionally there’s a bit of melodrama but I guess I need to accustom myself to literary license. Sometimes the author pounds a concept into the ground while totally bypassing another aspect of the storyline that would have been fascinating to read. For example, we read repeatedly about nuances of Tori’s friendship with her friends at the Sweet Briar Lady’s Society Sewing Circle while her fiance Milo virtually disappears from view. Likewise, the actual capture of the murderer is totally overlooked in favor of a tangent of the theme. I’m not sure how the author decides which branches of the story she’s going to develop while others are ignored. Nevertheless, I look forward to reading more about the friendly ties that bind the ladies of Sweet Briar.

The holiday spirit is alive and kicking in the small town of Sweet Briar thanks to the lovely ladies in the Sweet Briar sewing circle. A passing of a dear friend, a buried body and a Grinch cannot stop the ladies for celebrating the happiest time of the year for young kids and big kids alike. As always I enjoy my time in Sweet Briar as Tori and her friends set out to solve this puzzling case that kept me on my toes with surprising revelation as the women uncovered secrets and betrayals in exposing a killer. Seeing this group come together for a worthy cause delights me in this character-driven series that boast lovable characters, a small-town atmosphere and engaging conversations. This is now the best book yet in this wonderfully-crafted series and I look forward to my next visit with Tori and her friends.

the sweet briar ladies sewing circle are at it again. the sassiness of these various aged woman and their spunkiness is one of the perks of reading this series. from rose, the oldest, to tori, the youngest, their interaction is as much a part of the story as the murders that take place. the town has lived for years under the impression that charlotte's husband ran off with another woman. no, not true. he had been murdered. as the story unfolds, the surprises continue to show up. tnis is a cozy mystery not to be missed. the family feel between the characters and the intrigue is one of miss elizabeth's strong suits.

This is a cozy mystery in the true sense of the word. Characters are likeable and the Christmas season is prominent throughout which all made for a pleasant read. I'm not sure that I will read another of the series because it lacked any real "meat" to the story line, I did enjoy it for what it was. Oh, and Paris sounds adorable as does her owner!

Down south, the holidays mean family—and for Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair, family means the Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle. It may not be a white Christmas, but it’s one she’ll never forget—no matter how hard she tries… The Sweet Briar Holiday Decorating Committee has been taken over by an outsider. Margaret Louise has been replaced without any notice. She has been replaced by "The Grinch" who just happens to be dating councilman Avery Jordan. To try to keep things under control Margaret Louise volunteered Leona, Rose, Dixie and Tori to help "the councilman's little hussy". Tori and Dixie have their hands full with the Holiday Book Extravaganza but can't turn their backs on helping Margaret Louise. And the season has brought sad tidings as well: Charlotte Devereaux, a sewing circle founding member who unraveled after her storybook marriage fell apart, has passed away. Charlotte loved to draw and near the end of her life while her while her mind was foggy, she sketched some things that make Tori realize her husband didn't leave her - he was murdered!!! Santa's naughty list will be overflowing as Tori sorts out all the clues. After 7 stories I feel like the ladies of the Sweet Briar Sewing Circle are old friends I get to see not near enough. Visiting them for the holidays was absolutely perfect. I was as upset about Miss Maime Wellington as the ladies. I have to admit I thought she may be another victim found dead before this story ended. Thankfully my friends had their own "sweet" way to deal with their Grinch. The actual murder mystery in this story was pretty complex with several possible suspects and the author kept me guessing right up to the end. She is a master at this. I am always one or two steps behind. I really enjoyed learning about The Devereaux Creek Center and hope the ladies keep up their volunteer work. There seems to be a bit more to to its story. Elizabeth Lynn Casey has created wonderful caring characters and placed them in a beautiful place. She also puts them in real situations outside the mystery. Whether it be a book fair or a crafting session you will be inspired. She even includes an easy stocking pattern in this edition that will have you wondering if you can do a project just like the Southern Sewing Circle. I highly recommend a holiday trip over the river and through the woods to Sweet Briar and while there may not be a lot of snow these ladies really know how to Let It Sew!!
