Thread on Arrival
"Embroidery shop owner Marcy Singer gets hung up on a tapestry that may lead to sunken treasure and be the motive for murder. When Marcy's friend Reggie, Tallulah Falls' local librarian, asks her to teach an embroidery class as therapy for domestic abuse victims, she gladly agrees. One of the women wants to flee from her abusive husband but is afraid to leave her elderly father-in-law behind. And she thinks Marcy can help. The elderly gentleman shows Marcy a tapestry his grandmother made, which he believes reveals the location of pirate treasure off the Oregon coast. He'll move to a shelter--provided Marcy takes the tapestry to keep it safe. But when the police arrive the next day to escort him out, they find the old man murdered and the house ransacked. Does someone want that treasured tapestry desperately enough to kill for it?"--P. [4] of cover.

I really like this series, but I have to say that I figured out who was the murderer about a third of the way through the book.

I love the characters and the Marilyn Monroe references.

Like the other comment, I strongly object to the domestic violence just being cured instantly.

Terrible writing. Long descriptions of what everyone is wearing but the solution to the blindingly obvious murder mystery is done in one page. Very unrealistic ending where a wife-beater is "cured" in one paragraph and everybody is happy for ever after. I am not actually sure the author has ever done any needlework.
