    I have been a fan of this series since I picked up the first book, so I was happy to read this third installment to catch up with Cora and Jane. I think this is a terrific series full of fun, quirky characters and well crafted mysteries. I also love reading about the various types of crafts being taught at the retreat. It makes me wish I was more of a creative person and could do these types of crafts myself. The charming setting, whether it is Indigo Gap or Sea Shell Island, add another layer o

    I have been a fan of this series since I picked up the first book, so I was happy to read this third installment to catch up with Cora and Jane. I think this is a terrific series full of fun, quirky characters and well crafted mysteries. I also love reading about the various types of crafts being taught at the retreat. It makes me wish I was more of a creative person and could do these types of crafts myself. The charming setting, whether it is Indigo Gap or Sea Shell Island, add another layer of dimension to the stories that keep me, as a reader, engaged and returning to the series to see what author has in store for us in the future.

    A full review will be posted to my blog closer to the review date.

    I received an advanced reader copy from Kensington, the publisher, through Netgalley.

    Macrame Murder was a wonderful addition to this colorful series. The characters are not only fun, but they are also realistic. They have pasts, like we all do. This helps turn them into characters, rath than just names on a page. When Cora learns more about Adrian, her boyfriend, she assesses her life, and decides whether or not she is ready to open herself up to a relationship. The craft theme was sprinkled, like glitter, throughout the book. There was never moment where I forgot it was a craft

    Macrame Murder was a wonderful addition to this colorful series. The characters are not only fun, but they are also realistic. They have pasts, like we all do. This helps turn them into characters, rath than just names on a page. When Cora learns more about Adrian, her boyfriend, she assesses her life, and decides whether or not she is ready to open herself up to a relationship. The craft theme was sprinkled, like glitter, throughout the book. There was never moment where I forgot it was a craft mystery. I also never forgot that there was a crafty killer lurking between the pages. The mystery left me with the satisfied feeling that can only come from reading an enthralling story. The mystery was filled with twists, turns, and truly shocking moments. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this captivating series!

    Cora Chevalier and her sidekick, Jane Starr, return in Macrame Murder, the third book in the Cora Crafts Mystery Series. This time, Cora and Jane travel to Sea Glass Island to teach crafting classes at a resort. They are both looking forward to just teaching classes at this retreat, not running it like they do for their own craft business in Indigo Gap, NC.

    Cora Chevalier and her sidekick, Jane Starr, return in Macrame Murder, the third book in the Cora Crafts Mystery Series. This time, Cora and Jane travel to Sea Glass Island to teach crafting classes at a resort. They are both looking forward to just teaching classes at this retreat, not running it like they do for their own craft business in Indigo Gap, NC. But, this idyllic island crafting retreat quickly goes wrong. The body of a local woman is discovered on the beach. Unfortunately, Cora's boyfriend, Adrian, quickly becomes the main suspect in the killing. He admits that he dated the woman, and that she broke up with him three years earlier. Cora and Jane realize they need to discover the true murderer before Adrian faces murder charges for a crime he didn't commit. When a second body is discovered, they realize that they could all be in serious danger.

    I like this series. Cora and Jane are great as main characters. They have flaws and issues, but work through their challenges. Both women are independent, intelligent and feisty. Strong female characters -- love it! The mystery moves along at a good pace, with snippets about various crafts (macrame, sea glass jewelry, knitting, crochet, etc) sprinkled in throughout. At the back of the book are craft patterns for CD/DVD Coasters, macrame friendship bracelets and sand candles. The mystery plot is believable for the most part. There was one instance where I had an eyeroll moment -- the way one body is discovered just seemed a bit silly to me. But hey -- it's a cozy mystery. Sometimes you have to suspend reality and just enjoy the story.

    I've enjoyed every book in this series so far. And I will definitely continue reading each book as it comes out!
