Description
Unraveling family secrets can be murder in Suede to Rest...THE FIRST BOOK IN THE ALL-NEW “MATERIAL WITNESS” MYSTERY SERIES With her career as a dress designer in shreds, Polyester Monroe is looking forward to a fresh start. But as it all unfolds, the pattern to a new beginning looks a lot like murder. When Poly Monroe was little, she loved playing in her family’s textile store. But after a fatal family tragedy, Land of A Thousand Fabrics was boarded up and Poly never expected to see the inside again. Now, as inheritor of the long-shuttered shop, she’s ready to restore the family business. However her two new kittens, Pins and Needles, aren’t the ones causing a snag in her plans…Not everyone wants Poly back in San Ladrón, especially a powerful local developer pressuring her to sell—and leave town fast. But even when the threats turn deadly, she’s not ready to bolt. Because Poly is beginning to suspect that the murder behind the shop is tied to a mystery in her family’s unsettled past that she’s determined to solve…before her own life is left hanging by a thread.INCLUDES A CRAFT PROJECT

        Polyester Monroe was born in the fabric store called Land of a Thousand Fabrics, so dressmaking has always been in her blood. When she inherits the business, she travels to San Ladron, CA, to sell the company and shut its doors for good. Years ago, Poly's great-aunt was murdered in the shop, and the place was boarded up. As soon as she walks into the store, however, Poly realizes that she can't give up her legacy. But not everyone in the small town wants her there. A local developer is pressuring her to sell, and when the senior patrol captain, who saw something suspicious the night her aunt was murdered, is killed, Poly knows something is very wrong. VERDICT This series debut by the author of the "Mad for Mod" and "Style & Error" titles is a sweet mystery with just enough detail about dressmaking and fabrics to charm fashionistas. Although somewhat repetitious, this is an overall entertaining cozy.
