Lea Wait returns with THREAD HERRINGS, the seventh book in the Mainely Needlepoint series. If you’ve read my other reviews for this series before then you may be aware that this series has been a little lukewarm for me. I haven’t ever been fully able to fall in love with this series. However, I also find that I keep picking these books up to try.
In this book, I had a lot of the same issues with the previous books that I have read. Although I enjoy the heroine and the community that this series is set in, the pacing of the books are just too slow for me. With Cozy Mysteries in general, this is something that you can expect. However, in comparison to others that I have read, this one has a notoriously slower pace than most of the others. Therefore, I do think it is an exercise in patience to really get through these books.
Despite this however, I still come back and I’m not sure why. While these books don’t stand out to me, there’s something comforting about them and that could be why I always pick them up despite not falling in love with them. I think if you’re looking for something to really slow down life and get your mind off something that is irritating you, this is the kind of book that you want. So really, there’s a place for everything and now I know I will pick these books up whenever I’m in need of something more simple and stress-free.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
