Book Review - Let It Sew: A Southern Sewing Circle Mystery by Elizabeth Lynn Casey

Just in time for the holidays comes a delightful Christmas-themed mystery from best-selling author Elizabeth Lynn Casey!


Down south, the holidays mean family—and for Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair, family means the Sweet Briar Ladies Society sewing circle. It may not be a white Christmas, but it’s one she’ll never forget—no matter how hard she tries…
Instead of spending a nice, relaxing Christmas with her fiancé, Tori Sinclair has been drafted into Sweet Briar’s holiday Decorating Committee. And the season has brought sad tidings as well: Charlotte Devereaux, a sewing circle founding member who unraveled after her storybook marriage fell apart, has passed away.
Charlotte’s last days were foggy, distressed, and feverish… except for the sketches she produced. One detail in particular jumps out at Tori and leads to a shocking revelation: Charlotte’s husband didn’t leave her—he was murdered! And as she gets closer to the truth, Tori will discover that just about everyone in town has got notches on the naughty list this year.


I am a big fan of the Southern Sewing Circle Mystery series by Elizabeth Lynn Casey, and I was not disappointed in "Let It Sew!"  The lively and sassy sewing group once again bands together when one of their own is slighted, and also when a former member is accused of the impossible - committing murder.

Not only does this book catch fans up on the lives of Tori Sinclair and her friends, but it also presents an intriguing who-dun-it mystery that will have readers guessing until the very end.

And, as always, Casey includes a charming sewing project idea at the end of the book that will be a perfect gift idea!

I highly recommend this book for holiday reading and it would make a great gift for your favorite sewing enthusiast!

Elizabeth Lynn Casey is the author of the Southern Sewing Circle Mystery Series with Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin). She is not a seamstress, but she plays one in books. :)

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not compensated for my opinion.
