Tori Sinclair, head librarian at the local public library, and the members of her sewing circle in Sweet Brian, South Carolina, are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas season. That happy bubble is burst by the arrival of Mamie Wellington, the fiancée of one of town’s councilmen; Mamie has been named head of the holiday decorating committee displacing its long-time chair. “The Grinch,” as Mamie is nicknamed, intends to upend every holiday tradition, including the replacement of the town Christmas tree with a more eco-friendly “virtual” tree.
The group is also saddened to learn that one of their founding members has died – Charlotte Devereaux. She had been sidelined with Alzheimer’s but her death was quite sudden. Tori uncovers evidence that leads to the discovery of the body of Charlotte’s husband – on library grounds no less – who was thought to have left her for another woman. Although the local cops are convinced that Charlotte murdered her husband and, being that she’s dead, don’t pursue any other suspects. Tori doesn’t think so and proceeds to investigate the death of Parker Devereaux.

Let It Sew is an okay cozy mystery, with great characters and so-so writing. Not a favorite, but worth the time. ( )

Interesting mystery, surprise ending--sort of! I found the writer's style somewhat annoying, as I do not like cute phraseology. The storyline itself kept my attention, as did the quirky characters. I still do not understand why a private citizen would take it upon herself to conduct a murder investigation, but that is the way of it in cozy mysteries. Still a fun read! ( )
