The seventh book in the Needlepoint series is very creative and original for a cozy mystery. I have been reading for 75 years and almost exclusive mysteries since 2013. I have never seen the way the main adventures used in the way. It was a pleasure to read how the protagonist didn’t do anything stupid but still managed to solve the crime. Angie Curtis goes to her first auction with her friend Sarah to learn about auctions. Angie sees an old faded needlepoint of a coat of arms and buys it. At home, she removes the back and a receipt for a child from a foundling nursery in the 1700’s and a pink ribbon to identify the child. A chance meeting with a friend who is a TV reporter for a Boston TV station, a one-minute human interest report is made. Shortly, after it airs the station received a message that all who investigate would day. The next Cl Walker is shot in her car. Angie and her friends work to make sure Angie is not hurt. There is an explosion that injured her stepfather and there other strange events. The motive is strange and surprised me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES. One pasta recipe is included.

    Good review. I am starting this one this afternoon, but I was disappointed to see that I missed the last one. I started this series with the 5th and intended to read them all as they came out. 😞
