It’s hard to imagine anything bad ever happening in picturesque Haven Harbor, Maine–until a famous face rolls into town and unthreads some very dark secrets. . .
Angie Curtis and the Mainely Needlepointers are all too familiar with the Gardener estate. The crumbling Victorian mansion, known as “Aurora,” has been sitting vacant for nearly twenty-five years–and some say it’s haunted by the ghost of Jasmine Gardener, the teenage girl who died there in 1970 under mysterious circumstances…
Harbor Haven is abuzz with excitement when Hollywood actress Skye West decides to buy Aurora and sell off its furnishings. And Angie is intrigued when Skye asks her to appraise the estate’s sizable collection of needlepoint pictures. But the more she examines the pieces, the more they seem to point toward Jasmine’s murder–and the murderer–and it’s up to her to stitch the clues together. . .
But can Sunshine and Aine put aside their differences to stop the murders without tearing each other apart?

What I Thought:

This was my second visit to Haven Harbor, Maine and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first.  Even though this is the second book of a series, you don't need to read the first book to understand what is going on.  Angie stumbles upon a 45 year old murder.  This makes for some very interesting reading.  I like Lea Wait's writing style and I like how she writes about unsolved murders from many years ago.  If you are looking for a good cozy that will keep you guessing and keep you entertained, then this is the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
