Those of you frequent the blog, you may remember awhile back I was reading Pleating for Mercy (Magical Dressmaking Mystery, Book 1)– this was a fun to read title that was not just a supernatural mystery, but involved my favorite topic… sewing. A Fitting End is the second book of the series and is every bit as fun and suspenseful as the first. This time the dressmaker with the ‘magical’ touch, Harlow, is preparing to make a gown for the Moffette Lea Pageant and Ball when she is suspected of murdering the local golf pro with a pair of dressmaking shears. Of course, it’s up to Harlow to solve the mystery and clear her name before she’s making her own prison jumpsuit! Not only does A Fitting End have a great story line, it delves more into her family’s magical history and introduces new (family) characters. I can definitely see lots of potential for future titles in this series!
