Fashions fade, but death is eternal in Deadly Threads-- Agatha finalist Jane K. Cleland's irresistible new blend of vintage and vengeance.

Josie Prescott has begun hosting classes at her antiques and appraisals shop, nestled in the cozy little coastal town of Rocky Point, New Hampshire. The next class is on building a great vintage clothing collection. But when guest lecturer Riley Jordan is late, Josie begins class by reaching under a display table for a dazzling pair of Chanel heels. But instead of the heels, she finds Riley, dead. When it looks as if one of Josie's employees may be involved in the murder, she teams up with the local police chief to investigate, one clue, and one fabulous vintage accessory, at a time.

I liked this one alot... again more descriptive of antiques and plot devices than people, but I loved the addition of Hank to the permanent cast!

This is the first Josie Prescott mystery that didn't grab my attention and make me want to read it in one sitting. I figured out who the murder was immediately, darn it! The "other suspects" just weren't real to me. Did someone help Cleland write this?

As usual, plenty of action, just enough suspense and no unneccessary description.

I found the writing to be a bit formula in nature. I stuck it out. I enjoyed the tid bits about designer fashion but the mystery devlopment was mediocre. I adored Hank the cat. No inspiration to continue with other writings from this author.
