Publisher's Summary

After leaving a decade ago, Angie Curtis has been called back to Harbor Haven, Maine, by her grandmother, Charlotte, who raised her following her mother's disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder. The bright spot in Angie's homecoming is reuniting with Charlotte, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called the Mainely Needlepointers.
But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Charlotte and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother's cold case.

Cottage industry and murder

amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, needlework, cottage-industry, crooks, murder

The publisher's blurb wasn't too bad, but since Angie had had reason to escape her home town immediately after high school, she really wasn't thrilled about having to go back. The fact that her mother's body had been found after nearly twenty years did provide some comfort that mom had not deserted her. But a bullet to the brain and the suspect being dead is hardly a positive outcome. Then there is the fact that her gran had begun a cottage business beneficial to several town members but had been fleeced by the buying agent meant that she had to stay and help. Until the man was murdered in their home. There is lots more to this twisty mystery, but no spoilers here. At the beginning of each chapter is a quote from handiwork completed in early Maine history. The characters are engaging and well done.
I got this as Whispersync on the cheap advertised in Book Gorilla.
Christina Delaine provided excellent narration.
