About the book 
Angie’s first auction may turn out to be her last—when she bids on a coat of arms that someone would literally kill to possess . . .
Tagging along to an estate sale with her fellow Needlepointer, antiques shop owner Sarah Byrne, Angie Curtis impulsively bids on a tattered embroidery of a coat of arms. When she gets her prize back home to Haven Harbor, she discovers a document from 1757 behind the framed needlework—a claim for a child from a foundling hospital. Intrigued, Angie is determined to find the common thread between the child and the coat of arms.
Accepting her reporter friend Clem Walker’s invitation to talk about her find on the local TV news, Angie makes an appeal to anyone who might have information. Instead, both women receive death threats. When Clem is found shot to death in a parking lot, Angie fears her own life may be in jeopardy. She has to unravel this historical mystery—or she may be the next one going, going . . . gone . . 
And others are saying 
Ms. Wait has crafted a tale of Murder and History that keeps you turning the pages until you sigh and put the book down when you have finished!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog
The narrative is well written, filled with fascinating historical detail, and flows at a steady pace. There’s no fluff or filler; every word is important.
~The Power of Words
I admit I was expecting a quick mystery with some fun dialogue and a bit of romance. The author surprised me and took this a step further. There’s a mystery in a mystery, danger around every corner and she really tested the boundaries of her characters.
THREAD HERRINGS was a story I couldn’t tear myself away from. A true page-turner of a mystery, with questions stemming from past to present, I just became more and more engrossed.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
Certainly, an opening that grabs the interest quickly and manages to weave informative and educational tidbits into an engaging and well-developed plot.

And I thought 
A different  but good  kind of read for me.  I am not normally a fan of Historical books.  And this one really isn't but there is a lot of history revolving around this story.  

I think that Lea Wait has drawn me into being more interested in 
history.  The story and the plot is carefully woven to keep the reader interested and turning the pages.  

I was interested in the antique shop detail.  The description and detail about the antique auctions was spot on.   I've bought and sold a few antiques and enjoyed auctions.  I was taken back and some fond memories were brought to my mind.  

You'll find a good mystery to try and solve as you turn the pages and you just might become enchanted with the characters.  

Although Thread Herrings is 7th in the series you'll have no trouble following along.  You might want to go back and read the earlier 6 as I plan to.

I enjoyed Thread Herrings and plan to read more books by 
Lea Wait. 

I received a complimentary copy.  
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
