Overview

In Threadville, Pennsylvania, known for its textile art courses and shops, everyone’s stories are connected by a common thread—even the ones ending in murder…
 
Every town has a legend. For Threadville, it’s the story of Snoozy Gallagher, the hotel owner who disappeared thirty years ago with a bag full of stolen jewelry, never to be heard from again. That is, until now—when Snoozy’s loot is discovered buried behind Willow Vanderling’s embroidery shop In Stitches.
 
When villagers mysteriously become ill, and a body shrouded in materials from Threadville shops appears in the exact spot where the treasure was—along with two abandoned kittens—Willow needs answers. The random events are too coincidental to be unrelated, but Willow will have to act quickly to unravel the deadly mystery, or she might get tangled up as the killer’s next victim…

Every town has a legend. For Threadville, it’s the story of Snoozy Gallagher, the hotel owner who disappeared thirty years ago with a bag full of stolen jewelry, never to be heard from again. That is, until now—when Snoozy’s loot is discovered buried behind Willow Vanderling’s embroidery shop In Stitches. When villagers mysteriously become ill, and a body shrouded in materials from Threadville shops appears in the exact spot where the treasure was—along with two abandoned kittens—Willow needs answers. The random events are too coincidental to be unrelated, but Willow will have to act quickly to unravel the deadly mystery, or she might be the killer’s next victim… I have loved each and every trip to Threadville. Bolin just keeps getting better and better at keeping us In Stitches. This time she pulls out the stops with a village legend that gives us a mystery tangled in another mystery and then some. All our favorite characters return. Opal, Naomi and Edna are in rare form and the center of a couple of surprises. Clay is doing some work for Willow so he is always around as the almost romance is set to simmer. Haylee continues to help Willow to NOT stay out the investigation and Tally-Ho and Sally-Forth are along on the “walks”. Sally even finds some new friends. This was a book I just could not put down. I was up reading late into the night and then the author left me wanting more. The last chapter, the last line, leaves us with a smile  The next installment can’t come fast enough for me!

Willow is continuing to work on settling into her home and has been working on getting Blueberry Cottage stabilized so that she can rent it out. After a skeleton is found on the grounds of the new hotel under development, making the townsfolk remember Snoozy who disappeared with a supposed treasure, the town isn't at all surprised when the treasure box is unearthed in Willow's backyard during the work on Blueberry Cottage. A community picnic renders the Police chief "under the weather" with food poisoning, and Willow takes up the search for the cause and the culprit. The characters are wonderful - well-developed allowing for good and bad traits to stand together, as well as strength of character while supporting others. The mystery is well thought out and has sufficient twists and turns to keep the reader entertained.

This is a very enjoyable read. It zips along with interesting characters and events (a yarn-bombed police car?!) The mystery is good and not easy to figure out. The repeated references to the local ice cream stand were hard to take--I want some, too! My only quibble is that the person who is guilty is a bit under the radar. It all makes sense, but there isn't much pointing in that direction.

Thread And Buried is the third book in the A Threadville Mystery series. I think I enjoyed this book the most, so far. It's an easy to read story about all our friends in Threadville and centers around friends and family. Some thirty years ago Snoozy, who owned the Elderberry Bay Lodge, took his guests valuable jewelry out of the lodge's safe and disappeared. But recently his bones were found buried near the Lodge. Then a day or two later Clay, Willow close friend, unearths a metal box on Willow's property and inside was the missing jewelry. Add to this, Fred Zongassi, who had a big argument with Snoozy and left about the time that Snoozy disappeared, is the one to unearth the bones. About this time Threadville is having a sidewalk sale, three ladies, not known to any of the shop owners, appear and disrupt things at a couple of the businesses. Later at a community picnic, several people were overcome with flu symptoms, or was in food poisoning? These events have Haylee and Willow if all these unexplained occurrences might be related. Now it is time for Sally and Tally to get some walks as Haylee and Willow try to figure out what is going on in Threadville. Looking forward to seeing if the romance bug will be able to bite Willow and Haylee.
