    1. Angie Curtis manages Mainely Needlepoint in Haven Harbor, Maine. Early one morning, she sees an old man rowing to shore. This turns out to be Jesse Lockhart. He is good friends with her friend Dave, but mostly he is a solitary individual. He lives rustically on an island that he owns with his cousin, that is home to the nesting grounds of theGreat Comorant, a threatened bird species. When a multimillionaire wants to buy the island and develop it into his Maine getaway, Jesse refuses to sell. Lat [...]

    2. Dollycas’s Thoughtsgrco_nigelvoadenterathopiusI am always excited when Lea Wait has a new book released. This time we are drawn right into the story as we travel to King’s Island, one of the many islands off the coast of Maine. This one is a nesting ground for some Great Cormorants and it is inhabited by just one person, Jesse Lockhart. He travels across the water 3 miles to Haven Harbor for his mail and supplies. He leads a solitary life and will do anything to protect “his” birds. When [...]

    3. I cannot get enough of these books! Please Lea Wait do not stop writing about Angie Curtis and the Mainely Needlepointers! I would be so disappointed. This story started out with Angie going down to the wharf early in the morning seeing the lobstermen getting ready to go out to get their daily catch. While she is down there she notices a strange small boat come in with a strange looking man she has never seen before. She asks around and all they tell her is they call him The Solitary. So she dec [...]

    4. Dangling by a Thread is the 4th book in the Mainely Needlepoint series. Although I found the last book in the series a bit low moving, I was able to read this book in just a few sittings. The characters held my interest and the subject matter was not what you find in most cozies. I would have liked to have read more needlepoint project descriptions but all in all it was enjoyable. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.I voluntarily reviewed this book via NetGalley.

    5. Many have written a short synopsis of the plot so I will write about my thoughts after reading the book. The Mainely Needlepoint series was my favorite new cozy mystery series for 2015. One reason I liked it was that it was a little edgier than other cozy mystery series. Angie, the protagonist, had somewhat of a chip on her shoulder when she returned home to Maine after being in Arizona for ten years In Arizona, she was an assistant to a private investigator. Angie is very independent, reads peo [...]

    6. This is the first one in this series that I have read and it wasn't bad.When Mainely needlepointers Dave Perry and main character Angie Curtis find hermit Jesse Lockhart dead on King's Island they begin the search for the murderer to avenge his death and save the island as it's a sanctuary for endangered Great Cormorants.Basically there I've just reworded the blurb and may have made it sound weird but it's an entertaining cozy mystery that has good characters and a lovely setting. I will be look [...]

    7. Dangling by a Thread, written by Lea Wait is a surefire page turner! In this book, Angie meets Jesse Lockhart, a local hermit who prefers to live a solitary life on King;s Island, where his one passion is taking care of the Great Cormorants, a "threatened" bird species. Local needle pointer Dave Perry is a friend of Jesse's, and when word spreads that a wealthy couple want to purchase King's Island as a vacation spot for a million dollar home to be built on, Dave tries to warn his friend. Before [...]

    8. It has been three months since Angie Curtis moved back to her hometown of Haven Harbor, ME. Her much-loved Gram has married the pastor and moved out of the family home and left Angie rattling around in the big house. The needlepoint business is going well and Angie is reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. However, as her self-imposed six months for a decision about staying in Haven Harbor approaches, she finds herself restless. On one restless early morning she walks down to the har [...]

    9. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Published by Kensington Books via NetGalley.Someone's trying to kill two birds with one stoneWhen Angie is sitting at the wharf early one morning drinking coffee, she sees a man row in, someone she has never seen before. When she enquires about him, she learns that most people call him the 'Solitary Man' and he lives out on King's Island.

    10. Princess Fuzzypants here:Before this series, I didn't know much about samplers. Momma would never do it since she cannot sew worth beans. It is an interesting art form and I love the way the author weaves different samplers into the beginning of each chapter with a bit of a biography of the creator of the piece. It would be something that would fascinate me even if I did not like the books.But I do like this series.The reader gets a palpable feel for the rugged Maine location, complete with reco [...]

    11. I've enjoyed all the books in this series, Mainely Needlepoint, this is book 4. We are back with Angie, Dave and all the other needle workers as they decide to help Jesse save the Great Cormorants in Haven Harbor, Maine. Jesse's family has been trying to sell his island to developers declaring him incompetent but someone wasn't willing to wait and now Jesse is dead. As always a great mystery with all the locals helping solve the murder and save the birds they all love.

    12. A deep emotionally satisfying read, this series gets better with each installment. The mystery was so well crafted it caused me to keep turning the pages well into the night. This was one book that didn't leave you 'dangling.' A must read!I was given an ARC of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    13. Questa serie mi piace sia per l'ambientazione (una cittadina costiera del Maine) che per il gruppo di ricamatori che sta al centro delle vicende: ogni volta che leggo uno dei libri di questa serie vorrei andare a visitare il Maine e le mie manine fremono per mettersi a ricamare! In questo volume, poi, al centro di tutta la storia c'è la protezione di un'isola in cui nidifica una specie di cormorani in pericolo: un argomento che mi interessa molto. Aggiungiamo al tutto tre gattini orfani e mi so [...]

    14. Dangling by a Thread is the fourth book in Lea Wait’s Mainely Needlepoint Mystery series and I have enjoyed them all. One thing I like about this series is that not only is there a murder to be solved but there is always a secondary storyline that is just as interesting and often very timely. You do not have to have read the other books in this series to follow along, but I find that I enjoy them much more if I do.Protagonist Angie Curtis and her group of Mainely Needlepointers are a great cas [...]

    15. Dangling by a Thread is the 4th in the Mainely Needlepoint series featuring Angela "Angie" Curtis. Angie has been in Haven Harbor, ME for the past six months running her Grandmother's needlepoint business and settling in to her empty family home now that her Grandmother has married Reverend Tom and moved to the rectory.Jesse Lockhart is the man the locals call the Solitary. He is an army veteran suffering from PTSD who lives as a hermit on King's Island, just a few miles east of the Mainland. Je [...]

    16. DANGLING BY A THREAD is the first book of the Mainely Needlepoint that I’ve read of the series but it’s the fourth book in the actual series. As you can expect this series is set in Maine so it has a little bit of a small town feel to it. It also has a very quiet heroine who is although smart, Angie Curtis is probably the more laidback type of amateur sleuth. I think this also has to do with Lea Wait’s writing style. It’s much more slower in pace and the events tend to unravel slower.For [...]

    17. 4 STARSKenningson Press never fails to impress. The Mainely Needlepoint series is a stellar offering to the cozy community.Angie Curtis has taken over Mainely Needlepoint from her newly hitched Grandmother and she finds herself beginning to wonder about what she might have to do to maintain this huge house for the winter. To keep herself from such ponderings she notices a new man in town and follows him. Some people call him the Solitary and she discovers he is a hermit who is living on a nearby [...]

    18. I continue to enjoy Lea Wait's series, although I do have to admit that Dangling by a Thread is not its strongest book. There are two reasons for my opinion. First, the killer's identity was rather obvious, and two, the plot had much more to do with relationships and pitching in to help those in need than it did with the actual mystery. That said, there's nothing wrong with relationships and helping others; I'd just like more mystery.As always, Wait knows how to bring her Maine setting to life. [...]

    19. Angie Curtis has been running her needlepoint business in Haven Harbor, Maine. One misty morning, she sees Jesse Lockhart. He’s a hermit who lives alone on King’s Island, three miles east of town. His island is a sanctuary for endangered Great Cormorant seabirds. But, when a wealthy family wants to buy the island, Jesse’s life is also endangered. When Angie finds Jesse’s body, can she help Jesse’s friend Dave find the culprit before the island is sold and the Great Cormorants disappear [...]

    20. I do enjoy the needlepointers and their stories! This book really captured my interest. Angie stumbles into the mystery and yet it really seems she is just being friendly as she goes about finding answers. The relationships among all the characters read like a real life small town. It is nice to visit them from time to time. This is the second book I have read in this series. They don't have to be read in order but some threads do move between books. For example Skye and Patrick are in this stor [...]

    21. Over the years, I have read many of this author's books and have yet to read one I didn't relish. This one was not any different as Angie Curtis becomes involve in a movement to save the breeding area of the Great Cormorants Jessie Lockhart, a retired veteran of the middle east wars has make his home on Kings Island. A wealthy businessman has decided to buy the island and build a family complex there. There are enough bends and changes to keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend this book. [...]

    22. I won this book in an author's contest. It is the 4th in the series about Angie Curtis who moved back to take over her grandmother's needle point store. In this book Hermit Jesse lives on King's island an undeveloped island with not running water or electricity and is called the Solitary man. A weather man wants to buy the island and force Jesse to sell it. Jesse doesn't want his birds disturbed and it becomes an issue with the Needlepointers to save the birds. Later Angie finds Jesse dead and h [...]

    23. Have enjoyed reading all the books in this series, and this story was no exception. There were a lot of conversations and thoughts by the characters that really made me think about how complicated the issues are between saving wildlife and saving small towns. I was saddened by the reasons for the deaths in this story, but I could also understand the reason behind them. In some ways this story was very personal as I'm sure all of us have been touched in some way by the hardships of cancer. This w [...]

    24. Wonderful addition to the series. One of the things I like best is the way these books stretch the boundaries of the cozy subgenre. There's no graphic violence or sex or bad language. I don't mean that. But the subject matter is just a bit more "real world" and that makes what happens matter more. The result is an entertaining read that also makes the reader think. I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    25. **I voluntarily reviewed this ARC**This is the first book I have read in this series, and I had absolutely no trouble following along with the story. The characters were well-written, although not very genre savvy at times. I did figure out who did it and why easily, but it was still an interesting mystery.

She is the manager of her grandmother’s business, Mainely Needlepoint. Angie is out early one morning, and she notices a stranger docking a skiff.
