With a needle and thread, Harlow Jane Cassidy is capable of magic. Her neighbors in Bliss, Texas, on the other hand, are capable of murder.... Any garment Harlow stitches together has the power to grant the deepest desire of whomever wears it. So when she's asked to sew aprons for a local women's group, Harlow must get to know each member. First up is Delta Lee Mobley, who doesn't care much for Harlow's family--or anyone else in Bliss, for that matter. Granting Delta's greatest wish could only lead to trouble.... But trouble finds Delta all the same. The day after Harlow delivers her apron, Delta's body is discovered in the cemetery. It seems one of the townsfolk harbored ill will toward one of their own. Harlow's sleuthing skills are a cut above the rest, and with a few magical tricks up her sleeve, she is determined to cuff this killer once and for all.show more
