Patterns is the third book in the Magical Dressmaking Mystery
series. I read and reviewed the first two, here on Myshelf.com
and have been psyched for the next book release. I find the
series mesmerizing, with the small town cozy feel enhanced by
the otherworldly aspects and memorable characters.
Harlow Jane Cassidy
is a descendant of Butch Cassidy, and all of the women in
her bloodline are charmed with a magical gift. There’s
the ghost who wants things her own way, a woman who communicates
with goats and another who affects plants and flowers. They
are Harlow’s direct maternal family and each supports
her in their own way. Harlow’s charm is magical dressmaking.
This time readers
visit Bliss, Texas at Christmas time. The town is preparing
for its Winter Wonderland Festival and Harlow is right in
the thick of it. When a volunteer Santa, Dan Lee Chrisson
falls to his death, it doesn’t take long for Harlow
to get right into the thick of the situation and the investigation.
with familial bonds, small town craziness, romance, fun, humor,
and mystery, Deadly Patterns sets the bar high for a cozy
mystery with more than a touch of the paranormal. This book
is a great read for young and older alike and would provide
you with a fabulous read to while away a winter’s day.
