Content descriptions

General Note: Includes an excerpt from the author's Thread and Dead (pages 265-275).
Summary, etc.: Iris Buckley is sew ready for a change. After the death of her beloved grandfather, Iris decides to stay in her Maine hometown to help out her widowed grandmother, Anne, and bring her online hand-made apron designs to real-time retail life. Her and Anne's shop, Ruffles & Bows, is set to include all the latest and vintage linen fashions, a studio for sewing groups and classes, and a friendly orange cat. The only thing that they were not planning to have on the property? A skeleton in the basement. Anne recognizes the remains of an old friend, and when a second body shows up in the apron shop, this time their corrupt landlord, whom Anne had been feuding with for decades, she becomes a prime suspect. Now, it's up to Iris to help clear her name. Enlisting the help of her old high-school crush Ian Stewart who, like certain fabrics, has only gotten better-looking with age, and her plucky BFF Madison Morris, Iris, must piece together an investigation to find out who the real killer is.
