Marcy is busy helping her customers make hand-crafted       ornaments at her embroidery shop,  the Seven-Year Stitch.
 But despite the yuletide bustle, when her friend Captain Moe asks for her help, she can’t refuse—especially when the favor is to play the elf to his Santa for sick children at a local hospital. 

Despite the ridiculous outfit, Marcy finds herself enjoying spreading cheer—until the hospital’s administrator is found murdered

Although the deceased had plenty of people willing to fill her stocking with coal, evidence pins the crime on Moe. Now it’s up to Marcy, with the help of her police officer boyfriend Ted and her Irish Wolfhound Angus, to stitch together the clues to clear Moe’s name—before someone else winds up crossed off Santa’s list for good…

How can Marcy end up in danger while playing a goofy, lovable Christmas elf at the local hospital?
Have you met Marcy, the "inch-high private eye?" She is loyal and warm hearted and often a bit too nosy for her own good. She thought the most difficult part of this holiday would be getting her boyfriend's sister to accept her. Or walking Angus on slippery streets.

I love all the best friend type characters in this series. How supportive they are and how willing to go above and beyond to help each other and to find truth. And when reading an embroidery series mystery I am always encouraged to get my stitching out and work on it! That tells you how powerful this author can be. If only I had a sit and stitch square to enjoy.

A true cozy lover's cozy that might just surprise you at the end.
