2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

July 10, 2011

A RELEVANT MUST READ...




Melissa Bourbon's "Pleating for Mercy", offers a refreshing twist from that of other story novels.   Who would have thought that a sewist turned sleuth wanna be would write such a gripping page turner?  A sewist after my own heart - Melissa's mixes actual sewing references (with which I was familiar) with modern reality to bring the story line full circle;  not to mention the author's attention to detail when it comes to crime solving.


Any serious sewist can tell you the critical thinking skills necessary to create a garment from her imagination; now add that to the job of crime solving, and you have a plot that is just brilliant - even magical. And, if you don't fall love with the small Texas town at first, you will after reading "Pleating for Mercy"; where smiles are warm and all the people know you.  To top it off, amongst the warm smiling townsmen...the least person you would suspect solves the murder.

Let me stop before I give away the ending, but  I definitely suggest this book as I eagerly await the next edition of the Melissa Bourbon series...
