Can’t Wait Wednesday: Thread and Buried by Lea Wait

A cozy mystery series with needlepoint and likable characters set on the Maine coast

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

Thread and Buried

by Lea Wait

Series: Mainely Needlepoint #9

Published by Kensington

Publishing date: November 26, 2019

Genre: Mystery, Cozy

272 pages

Synopsis: Needlepointers Angie and Sarah are helping with set design for the movie being shot in their little New England hometown–but as the lighthouse and the wharves bustle with activity, a real-life drama is about to unfold. The producer, Hank Stoddard, has been harassing the pretty young female lead, and the two exchanged heated words at a lobster bake. Now someone’s lowered the boom on him . . .

After a wayward piece of sound equipment sends him to his death, theories fly about who went off-script. Meanwhile, a local woman’s tragic story about a true love lost at sea, which originally inspired the film, may lead to murderous revelations from long ago. Angie’s got to unravel these mysteries, and may need to give more than one killer the hook . . . 


I usually choose books published several months in the future, but today I’m choosing a book which comes out at the end of this month since I missed it when I put up my November 2019 books on my list last week.

I’ve read the first six books in this series and own the next two so I want to read at least one of those before this new book is published!

I really like the way the author weaves in the mystery with needlepoint elements set on the Maine coast.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

    1. I know how it is when you lose track of a series and then realize you’re several books behind. It’s just hard to keep track of everything.
