Description:

Returning to the quaint coastal town of Harbor Haven, Maine—a place she once called home—Angie Curtis finds her memories aren’t all quite pleasant ones…

After leaving a decade ago, Angie has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother, Charlotte, who raised her following her mother’s disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder.

The bright spot in Angie’s homecoming is reuniting with Charlotte, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called Mainely Needlepointers. But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Charlotte and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother’s cold case…


My Thoughts:

This book begins with Angie Curtis being called back to Maine when her grandmother Charlotte tells her that her mother has been found.  Angie heads back to Maine to help bury her mother, while there she finds herself helping her grandmother when she is being scammed by someone who offered to help with her business Mainely Needlepointers.  Also while there Angie figures she will try to find the motive into her mothers murder.  If nothing more than to satisfy the small child who lost a mother as a child.

This book was great new series that offers a different kind of relationship a daughter and Grandmother connected by Jenny the daughter/mother who disappeared so many years ago.  This book shows that sometimes you can come home and that your fate is written in the stars.  That going home isn't always as bad as you think it is.

I loved the characters and relationships they have that Angie was able to reconnect with some friends Chem and Cindy who she has grown up with and finds she can reconnect with them.  I can't wait to see what Lea Wait comes up with next!
