Overview

Parker Holt has started gobbling up properties housing small businesses in town, and Jo worries that her Craft Corner shop will be next. But when she arrives at Holt's home to learn his intentions, she finds him dead – the victim of an insidious electrical trap.

The police draw a bead on the construction crew working on the house, led by Jo's good friend, Dan. Anxious to clear him and his workers, Jo and her beading crafters set to work. Motives are dissected as necklaces are created, and Jo follows a chain of clues back into the past, hoping to unknot the current crime – and catch a murderer before he pulls any more deadly strings.

Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction - Denise Powers
STRING OF LIES is the second story in the Craft Corner mystery series. Filled with craft tips, this mystery is an enjoyable tale. Jo and her friends make pleasant companions as well as quick-witted sleuths. With just a hint of a possible romance, this series promises to grow even more intriguing as it goes on.

Mystery News - Mary Helen Becker
Fast-paced, suspenseful, and full of good characters, this is a tale to enjoy. The craft shop provides loyal customers who help Jo in her search for the truth
Reviewing the Evidence - Christine Zibas
The craft shop setting creates a small town gathering spot for the locals, who are as interested in town gossip as they are crafts. The book’s characters reflect a wide range of personalities, with everyday problems and concerns, from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Author Mary Ellen Hughes uses just the right touch with the crafting aspect of the novel, letting the beading class add to the story, rather than detract from it, and crafters will enjoy the hook of a free beading patter
