A Sew Deadly Cruise by Lois Winston

This is a book from the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery Series.  While I had not read any of the others in this series, I happily followed this one.  I won this book in an author giveaway and what a treat it turned out to be.

I do love a good cozy and this book checked all the boxes! Anastasia is a fun character who has had many challenges in her life – including but not limited to a mother who likes to get married.  The story has satisfying closure but left enough outstanding that I wanted to know more.

The book also included craft instructions at the end for the crafts Anastasia taught on the cruise.  Do get your read or craft or both on – and enjoy.

Life is looking up for magazine crafts editor Anastasia Pollack. Newly engaged, she and photojournalist fiancé Zack Barnes are on a winter cruise with her family, compliments of a Christmas gift from her half-brother-in-law. Son Alex’s girlfriend and her father have also joined them. Shortly after boarding the ship, Anastasia is approached by a man with an unusual interest in her engagement ring. When she tells Zack of her encounter, he suggests the man might be a jewel thief scouting for his next mark. But before Anastasia can point the man out to Zack, the would-be thief approaches him, revealing his true motivation. Long-buried secrets now threaten the well-being of everyone Anastasia holds dear. And that’s before the first dead body turns up.

Craft projects included.
