"You weren't ready for your mother and me to meet when she came into the shop the other day."
"You sound like we're going to a war zone rather than out to dinner."
My selection for today is from the above book, "Thread End":
It was almost lunchtime on Friday, and I was pacing. The museum exhibit I'd been anticipating for two months was finally opening that evening! My boyfriend, Ted; my friend Rajani "Reggie" Singh; her husband, Manu; and I were all going together. The guys weren't overly excited about the Padgett Collection textile exhibit, but they knew we were - and they were great guys, so they were taking us. Reggie was library director for Tallulah Falls's one and only library, Manu was chief of police and Ted was his head detective. I almost felt that we should be VIP guests, given the extra security Reggie and I would be bringing along.Another book in this series, "Thread on Arrival" was one of the first books I read when I discovered reading for myself again, and reading challenges. It is also one of the first cozies to land on my shelf.
Angus, my Irish wolfhound, could sense my excitement, and he paced with me. I perched momentarily on one of the red club chairs that helped make up my embroidery shop's sit and stitch square, and he sat and placed his head on my lap.
"It's all right," I said soothingly as I scratched his head. "I'm just excited about tonight. Reggie will be here to see you soon. Yes, she will! She's bringing lunch!"
Come back next Monday for my review of "Thread End".
