Tuesday Teaser and Giveaway: The Quick and the Thread by Amanda Lee

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers

This week's teaser is taken from The Quick and the Thread by Amanda Lee.

Be sure to scroll to the bottom to enter the giveaway! Just comment that you would like to enter the giveaway. Otherwise I'll just assume you are commenting on the teaser.


"One man-the man who'd for thirty years leased the very same shop I now leased-had died in my storeroom from what police believed was a poisoning. Another man-my landlord- had died hours after visiting my storeroom. "

Set in Tallulah Falls, Oregon, Marcy stumbles over a dead body in her storeroom the morning after the grand opening soirée of her new embroidery shop. The victim left a cryptic message scratched into the wall that left Marcy stumped. Now the police consider her a suspect. She must track down the killer before someone comes after her. Not exactly a propitious start to a new business venture! What a fun cozy mystery this is. I had no idea who the killer was and I loved one of the twists Amanda threw into the plot. Excellently done!

To celebrate today's release of The Quick and the Thread, Amanda is allowing me to give away 2 copies of her book. Open to US & Canada.

Bonus entries can be earned by:
+2 being a follower (old or new) just remind me how you follow and under what name

+3 blog, tweet, post in sidebar with link and let me know.

Deadline to enter is August 13th at 5 PM. Good Luck!!

Disclosure: A review copy of the book was provided by the author, Amanda Lee.
