Description:

Harlow Jane Cassidy is swamped with homecoming couture requests. If only she didn’t have to help solve a murder, she might get the gowns off the dress forms....  

Harlow is doing everything she can to expand her dressmaking business, Buttons & Bows—without letting clients know about her secret charm. When she has a chance to create homecoming dresses with a local charity and handmade mums for several high school girls—including Gracie, whose father, Will, has mended Harlow’s heart—she is ready to use her magical talents for a great cause.

But when Gracie’s date for the dance is accused of murder, Harlow knows things won’t be back on course until she helps Gracie clear the football player’s name. If Harlow can’t patch up this mess before the big game, her business and her love life might be permanently benched.

INCLUDES SEWING TIPS

My Thoughts:

In this book we follow Texan Harlow Jane Cassidy as she is helping teenage girls get ready for homecoming.  When quickly in the book Gracie Harlow's boyfriend's daughter's boyfriend ends up loosing his dad then getting accused of his death.  Did Shane really kill his father?  And is there more to Chris Montgomery than meets the eye?

Helping Harlow investigate the murder is Harlow's dead grandmother who leads her to clues to solving the murder.  This book dealt with a lot families and the children of those families and how they deal when things go wrong and kids find out.

I enjoyed journeying to the truth in this story of who had the most to gain by Chris's death.  What you find out will really give a whole new angle for cozy mysteries I have never read one like this with such a twist that you wonder how these secrets stayed quiet for so long.  I loved how Gracie and Harlow really connected in this book with making homecoming dress and accessories used.  It was great!
