Needle You Mind book coverNeedle You Mind (Stitches In Crime #11)
by A.C.F. Bookens

My Rating: 4 stars

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Age Category: Adult
Type of romance: MF

It was supposed to be a simple salvage job. A couple mantels, some doorknobs. . .but definitely not a dead body.

Paisley Sutton is sad to see an old Craftsman cottage be gutted, but she’s at least glad she gets to salvage some of the pieces. But when she finds the body of an older woman, still warm, in the house’s kitchen, she finds herself tangled up in a mystery that has ties to the house’s original owner.

Who wanted an old woman dead? Do they want the same for Paisley?

My Review

I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

Needle You Mind is the 11th book in this series and it continues to be one of my favorite cozy mystery series. I thought maybe the previous book was the last one, so I was really excited when I found out there will be more books. Paisley stumbles upon another dead body on a salvage job and this book had another interesting mystery.

The mystery was well written and kept me invested as I wanted to figure out how everything tied together. I was happy to just read along and see Paisley figure things out as I had no clue who was the murderer or what the motive. I enjoyed reading about Paisley as she figures things out and we learn more about the characters and the house in which the dead women was found. The ending was tense and then wrapped things up well.

I enjoyed being back in this series and reading about Paisley as well as her friends and family. Paisley is a likable character and I enjoy seeing how she figures things out. I also like how she and her husband, the sheriff, interact and handle these murder investigations. There’s more of Paisley’s son as well and it’s been interesting seeing him grow up throughout the series.

To summarize: This was another great read! I was so excited to hear about this new book in this series after I thought book 10 was the last one. This book had a great mystery and I was invested in the story and wanted to know what had happened. There is some history about the house and the dead women that Paisley digs up as part of the investigation. The resolution was well done and I liked how things got wrapped up.
