Publisher's Summary

Tragedy strikes in Thread and Dead, the second book in Elizabeth Penney's cozy mystery series - and now everyone in Blueberry Cove, Maine, is on pins and needles....

Iris Buckley is busier than ever this July, with the town's annual Lobster Festival fast approaching. In just a matter of days her apron shop, Ruffles & Bows, will be jam-packed with tourists eager to lay eyes on its world-class collection of aprons and linens - and Iris' inventory is running low. Then, just when all hope seems lost, Iris gets a call from Eleanor Brady, a wealthy, reclusive spinster who just happens to have trunks full of vintage fabrics. Would Iris like to come down to Eleanor's cottage estate Shorehaven and have a look?

Before long Iris is on the scene - and on the case. Turns out that Eleanor has rented Shorehaven to the handsome, charismatic environmentalist Dr. Lukas de Wilde and his flock of students. What begins as an apron-scouting endeavor soon morphs into a full-blown murder investigation when Dr. de Wilde's beautiful young teaching assistant turns up dead. Now it's up to Iris - along with her partner in love and crime, Ian Stewart - to unravel the mystery before the Blueberry Cove killer strikes again.

Slow and Boring

Thread and Dead is slow and boring with flat characters and an uninspired plot. I didn't finish this book.
