    I guess my idea of cozy is not what this writer's is. I really am tired of books about sexual abuse. It is something that is on the news and in the newspapers daily. Sexual abuse seems to be at epic proportions in our society today. When I read, I like to chose books that take me away from the daily happenings. Perhaps "cozy mysteries" would seem to be a strange choice, but most of them depict people I can like and some humor. I decided to send the book back.

    Angela Curtis' mom disappeared when she was 9-years-old. Just walked out of the house one sunny day, wearing her new pretty yellow dress and never came home. As soon as she was old enough, Angie moved almost as far as she could from her home town and ended up in Arizona. She eventually gets a job, working for a PI and is working towards getting her own PI License.After 10 years of living and working in Arizona, she gets a phone call from her grandmother, summoning her home. The body of her mother has been found. She later finds out that her mother's body had been stored in a freezer in a storage locker that once belonged to the father of Angie's former best friend.It is assumed that Joe Greene killed her mom, since the body had been hidden in his freezer/storage locker for nearly 20 years, but Joe is dead and can't defend himself or explain why a dead body is in his possession.Angie starts to reacquaint herself to Haven Harbor. Meets up with old friends. Discovers changes to the town since she's been away. Discovers changes in her grandmother's life.Her grandmother is running a small needlepoint based business out of her home and has run into some trouble with the business manager that she hired to take care of the books. Wanting to help out, Angie uses her skills she has learned from working for a PI to track the man down and bring him back to explain what he has done with the company's money.While the man is facing the angry needlepoint group, he suddenly becomes very ill and eventually dies. The police tell Gram and Angie that the man was murdered.Since they are the prime suspects, Angie decides she is also going to find out who killed him.I pretty much liked this book. I looked forward to reading it every time I picked it up. There were a few things that irritated me though.- She makes the grandmother seem ancient in the beginning. Then we find out that she is only 65-years-old. I know that Angie is supposed to be in her late 20's in this story and the 60's probably do seem old, but really? LOL- In all the years that she was away, Angie never knew that her grandmother was running a small business. It was a total surprise to her when she arrived at the house.- Angie basically just walked out on her boss. Never contacted him to let him know about her plans to stay in Haven Harbor for at least six month. (I know that isn't an important part of the story line, but it's one of those loose end kind of things).I gave this book four stars because I really liked it and I will probably read the second book in the series.

    Synopsis:Returning to the quaint coastal town of Harbor Haven, Maine—a place she once called home—Angie Curtis finds her memories aren’t all quite pleasant ones…After leaving a decade ago, Angie has been called back to Harbor Haven by her grandmother, Charlotte, who raised her following her mother’s disappearance when she was a child. Her mother has been found, and now the question of her whereabouts has sadly become the mystery of her murder.The bright spot in Angie’s homecoming is reuniting with Charlotte, who has started her own needlepointing business with a group called Mainely Needlepointers. But when a shady business associate of the stitchers dies suddenly under suspicious circumstances, Charlotte and Angie become suspects. As Angie starts to weave together clues, she discovers that this new murder may have ties to her own mother’s cold case… (Goodreads)Review:Angie Curtis returns to Harbor Haven, Maine, when the body of her mother is found. Her mother has been missing for a long time and Angie had no idea where she was or what happened to her. Now, unfortunately, Angie has the answer to one of those questions. Now she wants the answer to the question of who killed her mother and why. It will not be easy but Angie is determined to find the truth, no matter what.The characters are well developed and well rounded. Angie has had a tough childhood and does not have fond memories of Harbor Haven. But she returns with her head held high and is determined to solve the mystery. She has a tender spot for her grandmother and wants to help her however she can. I really enjoyed reading about their relationship. I thought Angie was strong yet vulnerable, which is a great combination.The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very good giving descriptions of the area and the activity that is happening. For much of the book I felt like I was right there watching all the action. The mystery has many twists and turns and kept me guessing.I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy. This is the first book in the Mainely Needlepoint series and I am happy that I was able to start this series from the beginning. I look forward to reading future books in this series.I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.
