Santa finds himself in a stitch of trouble in the tenth in the series from the national bestselling author of The Stitching Hour...


Marcy is busy helping her customers make hand-crafted ornaments at her embroidery shop, the Seven-Year Stitch. But despite the yuletide bustle, when her friend Captain Moe asks for her help, she can’t refuse—especially when the favor is to play the elf to his Santa for sick children at a local hospital. Despite the ridiculous outfit, Marcy finds herself enjoying spreading cheer—until the hospital’s administrator is found murdered.
Although the deceased had plenty of people willing to fill her stocking with coal, evidence pins the crime on Moe. Now it’s up to Marcy, with the help of her police officer boyfriend Ted and her Irish Wolfhound Angus, to stitch together the clues to clear Moe’s name—before someone else winds up crossed off Santa’s list for good...

My Thoughts:

This book follows Marcy whose working in her shop after Thanksgiving and helping customers make ornaments at her shop. When Captain Moe asks Marcy to step in as an elf to help out at a local hospital.  What Marcy didn't count on was a murder taking place at a hospital!  Who killed Sandra Vincent the hospital administrator?  And why is it being pinned on Captain Moe?  Will Marcy uncover the murderer on time or will she not make it to Christmas?

I really enjoyed this book with the themes of Christmas and of course murder always seems to happen.  I loved watching Marcy and her friends and family help clear Captain Moe's reputation.  I can't wait to see what is next form Marcy and her friends and family!
