A Stitch In Crime is another in the Quilts of Love collection from Abingdon Press. These books have been a mix of historical fiction, contemporary fiction, and suspenseful fiction, but they've all featured quilts or quilting, and they've all had a romantic story. A Stitch in Crime was a mystery/suspense surrounding the featured quilt in a quilt show extravaganza.
Because all of these books have been written by different authors, there are many differences in the writing styles. Some of them I've really loved, and some of them...not so much. A Stitch In Crime, unfortunately, falls into the second category.
The story is told with a one dimensional relaying of facts. There isn't any character development. We don't get to know the characters at all except through what they do. There isn't much of a romance to this one either which was a little confusing with the Quilts of Love. All in all, the story felt choppy, and I had a hard time really relating to any of it.
I give this one 2.5 stars and a PG for content.
