Great Summer Mystery Reading, “Death Threads”

Jun 17, 2010

Death Threads will surely keep you wondering!

If you enjoyed Elizabeth Lynn Casey’s first mystery novel Sew Deadly you’ll enjoy this one as well. Both novels revolve around the Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle in South Carolina and their newest member, New England Yankee, Tori Sinclair. In this new book, Death Threads, Tori has been welcomed into the Sewing Circle, and the fact that she’s not a native South Carolinian is all but forgotten. In fact, she’s settled in quite nicely with the women of Sweet Briar and developed some close and endearing friendships.

When local author, Colby Calhoun, reveals an unflattering secret about the town’s historic past—something that the townsfolks had been proud of for hundreds of years—he learns that the ladies don’t just sit by uninvolved, especially when he disappears. Their age-old southern pride has a way of standing in the way of justice, but Tori works deligently to unravel the circumstances to reveal the truth. The book is filled with multi-faceted, folksy characters most of whom overflow with southern charm.

This book would be perfect to cozy up with on a warm summer’s night when it’s too hot to do much else. You won’t know until the very end how the mystery is solved, and I’m not giving any hints! You’ll even find some sewing tips at the back of the book and instructions for the project that Tori Sinclair works on in the book.

Deadly Threads is available at,, and The list price for the paperback book is $6.99.

    Thank you for a great magazine and web-site.
    I am disabled. I live with my daughter and have a sewing business in her home. I do garment construction, alterations, quilting and machine embroidery. I am an avid reader, but with no extra time for reading I listen to books on CD's. I am nearly finished listening the Elm Creek Quilters Series by Jennifer Chiaverini. Her next novel will be out in March 2011, for which I am awaiting. So it is great to find novels about sewing by Elizabeth Lynn Casey. I also read and listen to the Bed and Breakfast Mystery Novels.
    I prefer to stay to historical inspirational novels.
    I sew dresses for business women, mother's of the bride, bride maid and clothing for all ages for both male and female. The alterations I do are mostly shortening garments or alterations of wedding gowns or maid maid dresses, jackets and coats.
    I learned to hand sew by the 4th grade and have always enjoyed all types of sewing and hand work.
    I have lived in the Pac NW since 1952 being from Minnesota.
    I am a sister to 6 siblings, mother to one son and one daughter, auntie to many and GREAT-Auntie to many more.
    I look forward to browsing through your tutorials. - THANKS
