This sounds like a series I'd really enjoy! I've never heard of this author but I love a cozy mystery and I love the quilting element. I love the used bookstore sign! We have a great one here that I haven't been to in a few months. It's calling my name! Yes, I hear that call myself a lot form Half-Price Books. Of which there are about 6 or more locations in my area. I love finding new mystery series so of course I am adding this one to the TBR list. I am glad to hear that you are enjoying these so much. They sound great!
Bob's looks like a charming bookshop! This series sounds fun! Yes, I love those little independent bookstores. Always some treasures to be found.
How fun that you sought out a local series! Oh well, I'm adding the first one to my wish list! Ah, yes, I keep thinking I can get over my 'compulsion' to read a series in order, but it hasn't happened yet. Aren't these locally owned small bookstores the best? They are always bound to have some treasures! I love them and have such a good time scanning the shelves or talking to the people behind the counter about books.
I love to visit interesting bookstores and I will make an effort to visit this one.

I really enjoy the genre of cozy mysteries, nice easy to read stories without gore, overt violence, sex or foul language. Most of these mysteries today have a theme, and many of them are ones I like, such as quilting, sewing, needlework, tea or coffee shops, cooking, stamping and more. I found new-to-me a series recently, and I am really enjoying it.
Quilt As You Go (Harriet Truman / Loose Threads Mystery, book 3) by Arlene Sachitano
It is a cozy mystery series with a quilting theme. The books are written in an easy to read style, with lots of quilting thrown in. There are some tips here and there too. One tip I found particularly appropriate was that quilters usually do not have enough lights in their stash, so every time you buy fabric you should throw in a yard of a light to round out your stash. Good advice! The first book, Quilt As Desired, starts out with the main character, Harriet Truman, coming back to Foggy Point so she can keep a business running while her Aunt Beth is on a cruise.
Instead, she finds out after her aunt leaves that she has in fact retired and left Harriet the business and her house. However, Harriet is having none of it. But the Loose Threads quilting group welcomes her and helps her to begin to heal that wound. Lauren believes the school owner has in fact copied Lauren, and wants Harriet to prove it. Not only that, but he was married to one of the Loose Threads and was thought to have died 20 years ago. There is a lot to sort out here, including finding out about a stranger that appears to be interested in Carla, another Loose Threads member.
The romance between Harriet and Aiden heats up a little too. The books are quick reads, and are printed in trade paperback size with print you can actually see. There are three more in the series, and I look forward to reading them as well. The author is quite nice too! I love this series!
