In the latest mystery from the bestselling author of Wicked Stitch, the future of Marcy Singer’s embroidery shop is dangling by a thread…
Marcy’s shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, is one year old this October so it’s time to party in little Tallulah Falls, Oregon. Aside from the Halloween decorations and festive stitching kits and patterns, Marcy’s got all sorts of celebratory swag, including Seven-Year Stitch key rings and goodie bags.
Unfortunately, her new neighbors might spoil the revelry. An eccentric couple has opened a haunted house next door, and all that screaming will certainly scare off customers. But there’s even more to be frightened of after a local waitress is found dead on the sidewalk with mysterious markings on her neck—and one of Marcy’s key rings beneath her. With no time to hem and haw, Marcy must act fast if she hopes to restore the peace to Tallulah Falls…

Review: I read Wicked Stitch in April and I really loved it, so I was super excited to read the next book, which is Halloween themed. I'm really loving this series and will definitely have to go back and read the first books. For those new to this series there are 8 books before this one. This is a series that is easy to love.

In this book a haunted attraction is opening next door and Marcy isn't very excited about it. Then a waitress is found dead, and it looks like their might be vampires on the loose. That alone makes for a perfect Halloween themed mystery..

Keira wasn't really the most well liked girl. Her ex boyfriends all have issues with her. Her father likes her sister better, so there are a lot of potential suspects.

The owners of the Haunted Emporium are really eclectic and a little bit creepy and the more you get to know them, the more questions you have about them.

I love Marcy and Ted. There relationship is coming along nicely and Marcy's mom has a relationship starting too.

The mystery was fun and fast paced. There is a certain point where you know who the killer had to be though, but it was fun to learn what the motives were.

I really enjoyed this book and I can't wait for the next book in this series
