Publisher's Summary

The 11 long short stories in Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads combine history, mystery, action, and/or romance, and range from drug trafficking using Guatemalan hand-woven wallets, to an Antebellum U. S. slave using codes in her quilts as a message system to freedom; from an ex-journalist and her Hopi Indian maid solving a cold case together involving Katchina spirits, to a couple hiding Christian passports in a comforter in Nazi Germany; from a wedding quilt curse dating back to the Salem Witchcraft trials, to a mystery involving a young seamstress in the infamous Triangle Shirt Factory fire; from a 1980s Romeo and Juliet romance between a rising Wall Street financial "star" and an eclectic fiber artist, to a Haight-Asbury love affair between a professor and a beautiful macrame artist gone horribly askew, just to name a few.

    Story
    "Wonderful set of tales"

    This is one of the best books I've heard/read in a long time. The author meshed history with the stories which lent an air of facination, especially since I love history. While some of the stories had dark elements, they all ended well, something I appreciate. I look forward to reading more works by SR Mallery.

    Story
    "Enjoyable listening"
    If you could sum up Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining Enjoyable Believable


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories kept my attention from start to finish. The tie in of the sewing and quilting of each story.


    Have you listened to any of Suzie Althens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to her before, but she is easy to listen to. Nice voice and character changes were done quite well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Being an avid quilter and sewing enthusiast for many years, I was pleasantly entertained by this book. Good story lines and engaging characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I am more of an e-reader and physical book type , I do enjoy audible books from time to time . Especially when I am busy in my sewing studio and in need of something other than music or TV while I work.
