Overview

When a cantankerous Sweet Briar resident ends up six feet under, the ladies of the sewing circle have to deal with a town full of suspects…
 
With the library’s budget dwindling, Tori Sinclair is forced to let go of her predecessor, and fellow sewing circle member, Dixie Dunn. After losing her job a second time, Dixie decides to volunteer for Home Fare, delivering meals to the homebound.
 
Less than a week after Dixie starts, her client Clyde Montgomery is found dead. The police think he died of old age, but with most of the town badgering Clyde to sell his picturesque land, his passing seems a little too convenient.
 
Determined to prove that Clyde was murdered, Dixie asks Tori for some sleuthing assistance. But with so many Sweet Briar residents in possession of a compelling motive, the sewing circle ladies will have to needle out the truth to find the killer…

To be honest when I first started reading this book, I was a little disappointed. Some of the attitudes towards Tori I found a little annoying and Tori's attitude toward her own wedding I was confused on. That being said, as the story went on, some of it became understandable and made sense. The murder mystery was interesting and with so many suspects (I would really worry living around some of these people) it kept me guessing and I admit I guessed wrong. I look forward to the next in the series.

the ladies of the sweet briar sewing club have another mystery on their hands. unfortunately the chief does not think it is murder. oh but wait, yes it is. dixie loses her job at the library and goes to deliver meals to the housebound that can't prepare their own. clyde is her client. one day she goes to deliver, and finds him dead. he's gone froma healthy 90 someting to a scrawny dead guy in a month. not possible. tori is convinced by dixie its murder and they start sleuthing. first they must figure out who would benefit most by clyde's death. the ladies of the southern sewing circle answer the call and solve this mystery? gotta read it and see. i thoroughly enjoyed this cozy mystery as i do all of miss elizabeth's stories.

Those sassy sewing ladies of Sweet Briair are up to their usual hijinks again in Elizabeth Lynn Casey's latest Southern Sewing Circle novel, Remnants of Murder. Librarian Tori Sinclair and her sewing circle buddies once again find that murder has crept into their quiet little town and its up to them to put their needles and thread down and find out who is stitching up a bunch of trouble and causing mayhem. On top of trying to help her friend Dixie and the rest of the sewing gang solve the latest murder in the tiny town, Tori is also supposed to be working on her upcoming wedding plans to Milo, but things just keep taking her attention away from the details and Milo is getting just a little bit weary of her excuses! Will Tori's sleuthing cause her to lose the man she loves? I absolutely love Elizabeth Lynn Casey's charming Southern Sewing Circle Mystery series. The cast of regular characters are just a hoot and a half, but they are also smart and loving. And Casey always features a captivating and intriguing mystery that moves the plot along at a quick pace and keeps the readers entertained and riveted. You can read "Remnants of Murder" as a stand-alone story, but indulge yourself and check out the whole series. You'll be so glad you did! I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a well-written, character driven, Southern-flavored and definitely cozy mystery.

Dixie has been a huge help at the library while Nina was out on maternity leave. Tori really hoped to keep her on after Nina returned but the budget is just too tight and getting tighter. Tori is forced to let her predecessor go, just when their friendship was making so much progress. Dixie lands on her feet and starts working as a volunteer for Home Fare delivering meals to the home-bound. She immediately makes a connection with Clyde Montgomery. Sadly less than a week after she starts bringing his meals he is found dead. It is ruled a natural death, he was 91. Dixie just can’t accept that. The man had something almost everyone in town wanted and his health deteriorated just way too quickly. Dixie asks Tori to assist her in a bit of sleuthing. With the help of the Southern Sewing Circle members that may be able to find a remnant of truth that leads them straight to a killer. Dollycas’s Thoughts There is never a dull moment in Sweet Briar, South Carolina and this time the whole town seems to be involved. Casey continues to paint extraordinary pictures with her words. This time the ladies spend less time sewing and more time strengthening the bonds they have built since the series started. Readers are also treated to a beautiful place outside Sweet Briar. Clyde Montgomery’s property/view sounds like paradise. A place I would love to visit and probably never want to leave. Milo and Tori’s relationship is having some growing pains but I have a feeling the next book in the series is going have a very happy ending. The Ladies of the Southern Sewing Circle have stitched a permanent place in my heart. Everyone needs a group of friends like them. They don’t see eye to eye on everything and they have their squabbles, but when push comes to shove they are always there for each other. I have said it before and I will say it again. These books are great stories that combine cozy mystery with women’s fiction. The mysteries are creative and clever. The friendships are real and true. Wrapped together they are a pure joy to read!!!
