For thirty-something blogger Cora Chevalier, small-town Indigo Gap, North Carolina, seems like the perfect place to reinvent her life. Shedding a stressful past as a counselor for a women’s shelter, Cora is pouring all her talents—and most of her savings—into a craft retreat business, with help from close pal and resident potter Jane Starr. Between transforming her Victorian estate into a crafter’s paradise and babysitting Jane’s daughter, the new entrepreneur has no time for distractions. Especially rumors about the murder of a local school librarian . . .
But when Jane’s fingerprints match those found at the grisly crime scene, Cora not only worries about her friend, but her own reputation. With angry townsfolk eager for justice and both Jane’s innocence and the retreat at risk, she must rely on her creative chops to unlace the truth behind the beloved librarian’s disturbing demise. Because if the killer’s patterns aren’t pinned, Cora’s handiwork could end up in stitches . . .

My Review

Great debut for this new series, is a book that is fascinating in its cover and inside its pages. I'm just learning the amazing world of scrapbooking and I love each object of DIY. I have really appreciated the helpful advice that are at the end.
Cora is trying to rebuild her life in Indigo Gap after a very difficult period. She is a craft blogger and has decided to open a craft retreat in Kildare, her Victorian house. To help her in this new business there is her friend Jane, she is very good at working the vessels but has a large stain in her past: she tried to kill her abusive husband. When the librarian is found dead unfortunately Jane is the prime suspect because of his past and also are found her fingerprints. Her position worsens when the victim's husband is found dead, he was very violent and Cora  will have to work hard to exonerate her friend.
The small town of Indigo Gap seems very comfortable and cozy and the author has described so well Kildare house that I really want to participate in a craft retreat.
The characters are realistic, believable and colorful with great artistic talents: I like that there are different arts DIY involved.
Really well written, flowing, fast-paced with several twists that made this book enjoyable and unpredictable until the end. There is suspense, humor and even a bit of romance: a cozy mystery really intriguing and interesting.
