    SEW DEADLY, DEATH THREADS and PINNED FOR MURDER by Elizabeth Lyn

    SEW DEADLY, DEATH THREADS and PINNED FOR MURDER by Elizabeth Lynn Casey.

    I'm new to the party on this series. But the good news for me---I still have 5 more of the series in my TBR stack to enjoy! The newest being REMNANTS OF MURDER, released earlier this month.

    I fell in love with Tori/Victoria and the people of Sweet Briar from page one of Sew Deadly. Ms. Casey kept me guessing through all 3 stories. Not only that, she kept me laughing! Out loud at times!

    The members of the Sweet Briars Ladies Society Sewing Circle are different as night and day. The things they do have in common are, sewing, gossip and their strong belief in each other. Well, some stronger than others. But they always come around in the end.

    Tori, the town librarian, along with her fellow sewing circle members, finds herself wrapped up in one mystery after the other in these three titles. But working together there is nothing they can't do, be it a group sewing project or solving a crime. I just wish I had this group of women around in my life. Luckily, I can spend time with them on the pages!

    Each book includes sewing tips (Ms Casey gets some from her readers!) and a sewing pattern of the book's project. NOTE: You do not have to know sewing to enjoy these stories. And fans with book themes won't be disappointed. Plenty of time is spent in the Sweet Briar Library!

    I can't wait to get into the fourth in the series to see what the ladies are up to!

    Do yourself a favor...read this series!

    Anyone who enjoys cozy's should be reading this series. The characters are a hoot and the story keeps you involved. I didn't want to put it down.

    a great mystery

    What a story! Rose believes that her former student could not be a murderer, so Tori and her friends are doing everything they can to prove his innocence, but everything is not as it appears. This is one those stories where you get wrapped up in the character's lives that you're pulling for them in every step they take. There were a couple of tender and warm-filled moments that made this book a worthwhile read.

    I LOVED IT!!!!!

    I loved all three of the books in this series and while I know this is not a sewing analogy, the best way to describe these books in like a three tiered cake.

    The bottom or foundation layer of the cake represents the true friendships of the women in this series. The humor and trust they bring to each other in good times and in bad. Your friends and family are the basis of any good life.

    The middle layer is Tori's budding romance with Milo and the relationship they have together and with his students, that is helping Tori heal from her past.

    The top layer of the cake is the library, the place Tori feels safe and at home. It is like the touchstone to many in the community, and they are supporting it and her and making it a place where some of her dreams are coming true.

    The icing on the cake is the murder, mystery and mayhem that touches everyone is this wonderful town of Sweet Briar.

    I know these books are classified as cozy mysteries and yes they have met all the requirements of that genre, but they are so much more. It's like a hybrid of Chick-Lit with Mystery too. These stories wrap two of my favorite things together, reading/libraries and sewing, and not just personal sewing, projects that reach out and make a difference.

    You most definitely do not need to be fan of sewing to enjoy these books, nor even a huge fan of mystery. This book to me is more about the friendships, the coming together, the willingness to accept each other whether you are a Yankee, a non-sewer, someone with a celebrity crush, 23 or 83, or just a plain old busybody. It is a story of friends supporting each other no matter what, even if it takes a little needle-ing to get it done.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Berkley Prime Crime, a division of Penguin Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

    Sewing and sleuthing, Southern style!

    In Elizabeth Lynn Casey's new book, PINNED FOR MURDER, the third installment of her Southern Sewing Circle Mystery series, a mysterious murder that involves one of their own has the Sweet Briar Ladies' Society Sewing Circle in a tizzy, and they once again look to their favorite librarian Tori Sinclair to help piece together the clues.

    After a devastating tropical storm ravages Sweet Briar, many of the town folks are busy cleaning up the damage left behind, some with the help of a band of drifters who have come to town seeking work. Tori has her hands full at the library which has lost a lot of books due to the storm, but when she hears that fellow Sewing Circle member Rose's house was heavily hit, she and the other ladies are concerned about their friend. Rose assures them that her former student, Kenny Murdock, will be doing her repairs as soon as he finishes up next door at Martha Jane Barker's house. But when Martha Jane is found strangled to death in her bedroom and all her stashed-away money is gone, all suspicions turn to Kenny, who is known for having a violent temper.

    Something doesn't seem quite right to Tori, and she begins to check into the crime and Kenny's involvement as a favor to her dear friend Rose. With the help of her beau, Milo, and the ladies of the sewing circle, Tori soon finds that one should never make assumptions when it comes to murder - especially when somebody has been playing Robin Hood about town - taking from the rich to give to the poor.

    Mixing a suspenseful story with a dash of down-home flavor, Elizabeth Lynn Casey once again offers an up-close look at Southern small-town living with PINNED FOR MURDER. Visiting with the charmingly eccentric folks of Sweet Briar is like taking a trip back home and readers will enjoy catching up on all the gossip from the ladies of the sewing circle, as well as a peek into the romantic relationship between Tori and Milo.

    Elizabeth also includes instructions on making the fleece scarves and hats that the ladies of the sewing circle are busy making for Tori's charity project!

    So, grab a nice cool glass of sweet tea and sit a'spell with this delightful mystery - you'll be glad you did.
