The Sweet Briar Ladies Society Sewing Circle is needled by the death of a highly strung woman in the new mystery by the author of Wedding Duress .
Downtown Sweet Briar is now home to a new sewing shop run by one of the circle's own. With the help and support of her fellow members, Rose is determined to make SewTastic a success, and, to that end, she decides to sponsor a series of do-it-yourself weekends for sewing enthusiasts.
But when a group arrives at SewTastic to work on a project, a loud and argumentative guest pushes everyone's buttons. And when she winds up dead in Rose's project room--strangled by a sewing machine power cord--it's up to Tori and the gang to stitch together the clues before Rose's reason for living is ripped apart at the seams.
