Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the quaint village of Blueberry Cove, Maine, where an expert seamstress turned amateur sleuth is getting measured for murder...

Iris Buckley is sew ready for a change. After the death of her beloved grandfather, Iris decides to stay in her Maine hometown to help out her widowed grandmother, Anne-and bring her online hand-made apron designs to real-time retail life. Her and Anne's shop, Ruffles & Bows, is set to include all the latest and vintage linen fashions, a studio for sewing groups and classes, and a friendly orange cat. The only thing that they were not planning to have on the property? A skeleton in the basement.

Anne recognizes the remains of an old friend, and when a second body shows up in the apron shop-this time their corrupt landlord, whom Anne had been feuding with for decades-she becomes a prime suspect. Now, it's up to Iris to help clear her name. Enlisting the help of her old high-school crush Ian Stewart who, like certain fabrics, has only gotten better-looking with age and her plucky BFF Madison Morris, Iris, must piece together an investigation to find out who the real killer is ...and find a way to keep her brand-new business from being scrapped in the process.

Very entertaining

Hems and Homicide is a humorous and entertaining cozy mystery. The characters are engaging and the story is well written with a lot of twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book in this series.

Nice, gentle listen.

It is very American and the narrator has an American accent, but it is still an enjoyable listen.

This book isn't going to change your life, but it made me smile. It was a lovely listen when doing my own sewing.

I am quite happy to recommend this book.
