Ike Hamilton is part of the Haven Harbor community, even though he lives on disability payments and bottle deposits. Many of Mainely Needlepointers are among those who help him out. But the townspeople are shocked when Ike is found brutally murdered. Who would do such a thing? Could it be a troubled teenaged boy who has just arrived in town?
“Wait blends in many details about needlepointing and running a small crafts business into the story, including bits of historical information about samplers and their creators, which begin each chapter. The importance of family, especially to those who lacked one growing up, is effectively woven through the tale. The lovingly described Maine coastal setting will appeal to those who enjoy Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone and Sarah Graves' Jake Tiptree cozies, also set in Maine.” –--- Booklist
“The cozy hamlet of Haven Harbor, Maine, takes care of its own. Themes concerning the welfare of both children and adults set Wait’s latest entry in her needlepoint series apart.” ---- Kirkus
