Cross Stitch Before Dying by Amanda Lee was an excellent cozy mystery filled with yummy sounding food, fun crafts, hunky men, and a cute dog. In other words, it had everything a cozy mystery should have. I gave this book 4.5 out 5 stars solely for the fact that I was able to discover who the murderer was fairly early in the book. However, that may just be a fault of my own since I've been reading and watching mysteries since I was babysat by my great grandmother and forced to watch Murder She Wrote and Matlock as a young child. Truthfully, this was a really enjoyable book and I highly recommend it.
