Poly pulls at threads to unravel the truth, but can she keep herself out of the fray?
"Diane Vallere has stitched up an engaging new series."—Sofie Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of the Magical Cats Mysteries
Suede to Rest is the first charming Material Witness cozy mystery. If you like small town settings, killer textiles, and crafty killers, then you'll love Diane Vallere's fun, fabric-themed series.
Fantastic 1st book in the series!
Once started, I didn’t want to put this book down!! I loved the story line and the spunk and determination of Poly, they mystery of Charlie, what motivates Vaughn and the list goes on! This was a great first story to the series and can’t wait to read more about Poly and the people of San Ladrone. A truly enjoyable read.
