      The Sothern Sewing Circle Mystery series is everything readers love about cozy mysteries! With this being the eleventh book in the series, you would think there would be nothing new to add. That is very far from the truth. Author Elizabeth Lynn Casey had kept each new book in this series fresh, fun, and oh so enjoyable. NEEDLE AND DREAD is written confirmation of this fact. This latest trip to Casey’s town of Sweet Briar, South Carolina was just the vacation I needed. Every time I visit with t [...]

      In this book, Rose Winters and Leona Elkin have opened a sewing shop in Sweet Briar. The shop has a small tour group and one member of the group is very nasty and by the end of the time at the shop she has been murdered. Tori Sinclair starts asking questions because Rose and Leona are her friends. This book takes place six weeks after Tori & Milo's marriage so there is a little more personal life included. The book was a quick easy read.

      Another great cozy mystery from Ms Casey!! The adventures of amateur sleuths from the Southern Sewing Circle gals (and also NYC newcomer Charles) continues in this newest book. Tori and the gang are trying to solve the murder of a participant of a sewing outing that was held in Rose and Leona's new sewing shop. The victim was strangled with the electric cord from one of the sewing machines~~ so who did it?? It had to be one of the other members of the sewing group from Jasper Falls~~ but who had [...]

      Needle and Dread is amazing. This series is awesome. The characters are lovable, strong and fabulous. This is such a pleasant read. You can not go wrong reading this one or any others in the series. This series set in Georgia ticks all the boxes a cozy should. And Elizabeth Lynn Casey's writing style is effervescent and enthralling. Another hit for sure!!I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

      I'm so in love with this series. I love the small town living, which remind me of home but the characters are described so well. You can actually feel the unbreakable bond they have. Even Rose and Leona, who just opened a business together, Sewtastic. Everyone is there for the grand opening. They had a tour bus of sewing tourist come to the opening.It would have been great time accept for one tourist who was putting everyone down. She had a nasty attitude and was found in the project room strang [...]

      I love witty dialogue and snarky repartee. Catty conversation is not either of these things.Could not even finish the first chapter.

      This mystery has crafty characters, a southern setting, and an ending that sets the tale for the next book. The mystery lets the reader determine who did the deed without spoiling the ending.

      Hi! Actual gay man here (hush, I promise that it's relevant to my review):Let me begin by saying that *Needle and Dread* was a fun read. But I'm not here to give it a full review, because I read it weeks ago and it's kind of gotten lost in the books I've read since (not the author's fault, I just read a lot of mysteries).So, why am I here now? Well, because I only started reviewing in the last couple of days, and there was one thing that definitely *did* stand out for me about this book, even ac [...]

      Tori has to thread more stitches than she bargains for I was so happy when I discovered the A Southern Sewing Circle Mysteries for two reasons, one being, I just learned basic sewing and it was something my mother taught me that I never caught on to until now and I was really proud of myself for learning and the fact that there's a character in the series named, Margaret Louise, My middle names happen to be Margaret Louise in that order so I just had to see what she was all about and It turned o [...]

      I really enjoyed my visit back to Sweet Briar and the women of the sewing circle, plus Charles is in town. If you have not read this series I don't think that you would have a problem reading it as a stand alone, I do suggest that you do read the others just so you have background info, like how surprising it is for Leona and Rose to open a business together, SewTastic. When a group is in town for a tour and stops to do a sewing project, murder occurs to dull the fun of the grand opening of the [...]

      "Needle and Dread" is a cozy mystery. This book is the eleventh in a series, but it didn't spoil the previous mysteries. A lot of characters were introduced quickly, though, so it helps if you've read a previous novel.The only thing the police did was prevent suspects from leaving town until Tori solved the case. That's a pity as it would have been a fairly simple case for them to solve. It's only because Tori picked the most difficult angle to solve the case (who hates the nasty woman? everyone [...]

      I was so excited to get the newest book in this series and my expectations were exceeded. The continuing development of the relationships between these friends is the biggest part of what draws me to this series. How the mystery is interspersed is an extra bonus. This book opens with the excitement of the new store SewTastic owned by one of their own. Of course, the excitement is short lived when a tour group comes for a weekend project and one of them is murdered in the store. It’s up to Tori [...]

      Enjoyed going to back to visit the sewing circle in Sweet Briar, South Carolina. Rose and Leona opened a sewing shop and Tori and Milo are getting use to being married. A group of women from another town comes to the sewing shop for a weekend sewing project. By the end of the day one of them is murdered. Tori and her friends and their friend Charles from New York are trying to set Rose's mind at ease about the murder. Hard to believe that one of these people committed this murder. One did and yo [...]

      Our latest visit to Sweet Briar includes a new sewing shop run by Rose and Leona. Unfortunately a murder of a very unlikable woman occurs at the shop during a visit from a bus tour group. All of the sewing circle try to help solve the mystery but Tori and Margaret Louise along with help from a visiting Charles spend the most time on the crime. The scenes with Tori and new husband Milo add to the cozy ambiance of the story. It is too bad Sweet Briar and the sewing circle ladies don't exist in rea [...]

      Rose and Leona have teamed up to open Sewtastic. As part of their marketing guru's plan they host a sewing weekend. All goes well except for that one mean lady that most groups have. This one is really mean and when she is found strangled in the craft room no one is really surprised. But the murder is definitely putting the damper on Sewtastics business and Rose's morale. So of course, tori, Maylouise et all investigate to solve the case. And in the end they do with a surprise murderer with a mo [...]

      This is the 11th book in the sewing circle series and once again the author gets it right. I love trying to figure out with Tori and gang who the guilty person is each time. Plus there is just enough romance between Tori and her new husband Milo to satisfy those wanting some romance. Love that Milo played a bigger role in this book. I also love how the author managed to sneak in a reference to the Amish town in her other series written under her own name. Very clever, looking forward to a book t [...]

      Newly married librarian Tori is happy that her elderly friend Rose enjoys working in the sewing store she has started with wealthy Leona. But when a body is found in the back room, business slumps, and so do Rose's spirits. Opal, the dead woman came to the store for a sewing weekend, along with others from her nearby town, but most of them have reasons to dislike her--she used her wealth to get her own way, no matter who got hurt. To keep the death from closing Rose's store, Tori and her friends [...]

      Tori is happy that her two friends have settled differences and have opened a sewing store together. They're having a big sewing event that goes terribly awry when a monster customer gets strangled by an extension cord in the backroom. The rest of the book deals with Tori investigating to find the culprit. It's really not the mysteries that keeps one reading this series, it's about the characters and their connections.

      Sweet Briar has a new sewing shop run by one of the sewing circles members, Rose. Rose tries to make it a fun place and runs classes. A loud, rude womens shows up and is later found dead in Rose's project room. The sewing circle has to figure out who did it before the sewing shop is out of business.

      Brilliant! A well plotted mystery that kept me guessing till the end, even though this is the 11th book in the series Elizabeth Lynn Casey shows no sign of flagging with characters that just grow more endearing with every book.

    27. Jessica on said:

      While I did like this book, it didn't particularly stand out in the series. It was nice to visit with the characters I've grown to enjoy so much. Definitely not suitable for anyone new to the series - do yourself a favor and start with the first book!

    28. Kathie on said:

      What fun it was to read this book. I have recently read ones that were not very interesting but this one has humor and I feel like the characters are old friends. It is always nice when the ending is a surprise.
