    A delightful Southern mystery that is a joy to read!

    Victoria "Tori" Sinclair is thrilled to begin her new job as head librarian of Sweet Briar, South Carolina's library. Not only is it a new challenge for her, its also chance to start her life over again after a devastating end to a romance.

    As a newcomer to town, as well as being a "Northerner," Tori is having a difficult time settling into her new home and making friends. An avid sewer, she is thrilled to be invited to join the local sewing circle, but is dismayed to discover the former librarian, the woman whose job Tori has just assumed, is also a member of the group.

    But the discomfort of trying to make new friends will soon be a minor inconvenience compared to what is about to turn Tori's life upside down. After finding the town's sweetheart dead behind the library, Tori is the number one suspect in the murder.

    Determined to find the true culprit, Tori finds understanding and help from a 3rd grade teacher, a bossy grandmother, a few of her sewing friends and a darling little girl named Lulu. Will she be able to stitch together enough clues to clear her name?

    "Sew Deadly" was a pure delight from start to finish. Casey captures the true essence of "Southern-ness" from the sweet tea right down to the "bless your hearts." This is such a comfortable novel that readers will feel right at home on Tori's front porch, if she can ever find a bulb for the light. And the gorgeous artwork on the cover is taken right from the description of Tori's living room - just perfect.

    I look forward to the next installment of this dandy series.

    The first Southern Sewing Circle amateur sleuth is an enjoyable regional whodunit

    After seeing her fiancé with another woman at their engagement party, Tori Sinclair moved to isolated Sweet Briar, South Carolina. As the newcomer in town, the transplanted Yankee librarian knows the eyes of the world are upon her not just due to her roots; the former librarian was forced to retire so Tori stands in judgment with the Sword of Damocles hovering over her. Making matters worse, her predecessor Dixie Dunn spreads lies about Tori.

    At a sewing social, Diane gives Tori dirty looks and makes sarcastic comments about the new resident. Tori has a dream for a special place for children to get them to read and she gets the board's approval in spite of Dixie's caustic opposition. Tori finds the body of the town's sweetheart Tiffany Ann at her back door. Inspector Daniel McGuire leads the inquiry with Tori as his prime suspect because rumors state she is after third grade teacher Mike who the victim loved. Most of the townsfolk assume Tori is the killer as they believe all the innuendos and rumors. Tori believes she must identify the culprit before she is either arrested or run out of town.

    There is more than one murder for Tori to cope with; but what drives her batty is the bulb on her porch keeps disappearing; her appointment book and a slide projector vanish. The people want to know who the killer is before they allow Tori any welcome. Thus the local support cast brings realism to the plot as they seem like us. The first Southern Sewing Circle amateur sleuth is an enjoyable regional whodunit starring a reluctant heroine and the locals ready to lock her away.

    A great new series

    This book introduces great characters in a small southern town. The banter between the older women and the hint of romance in the younger crowd is fun and leaves a lot of room for future books. As far as the mystery, it keeps you guessing--I changed my suspect a number of times as I read on. Give it a read, it will leave you wanting the next one!

    Disappointing

    Way too many southern stereotypes and a wimpy leading lady. Won't be reading any more of these.

    "Sew-searching" Librarian Meets Deadly Southern Charm

    This is an interesting read for the combination of sewing and books, both of which I am in deadly earnest. This earnest and sweet Victoria (Tori), our Librarian is on her own amidst the indomitable rules of southern culture. She is thrown a curve in her devotion to creating the most wonderful and helpful Library for this small town. Amazingly enough she is encouraged to be a part of the sewing circle. It touches her heart and reinforces her memories and training at the knee of her grandmother, so she accepts the "kind" offer. The small town adventure gets so off track from her original intent. But with the crazy suspicions circulating and the dead bodies popping up her life and love of the library is certainly in danger of failure. True hearts and kindness save the day. Books and sewing live on in her life and in mine.

    Roxy and Black&star Star

    Roxy thinks for a second. "We're far from Equestria, that's for sure..." She stretches her wings as she thinks some more.<p>
    Black&star Star sighs. "He's my buddy, my partner-in-crime! What's a Star without his Cool?" (That was very emotional XD)
