A retired schoolteacher--and yes, daughter of an F. Scott Fitzgerald fan--Daisy Buchanan has finally found her calling in the quaint village of Millbury, Pennsylvania. While her husband endlessly renovates their old house, Daisy happily presides over Sometimes a Great Notion, a quirky shop that sells sewing bits and bobs, antiques, and jewelry.

Daisy has her eye on an antique dollhouse and a classic Singer Featherweight at the local auction--until her friend and mentor, auctioneer Angus Backstead, is led away in handcuffs. It appears he bashed in the head of a drinking buddy who stole a set of fancy fountain pens. Daisy's sure the sprightly old-timer couldn't have done it. But if Daisy can't stitch together the bidder truth--and soon--Angus will be going once, going twice... gone forever.

Includes creative tips for vintage notions!

This looks to be a promising little mystery series, a bit saccharine because of the ever perfect lead character, but interesting and has promising characters. Good for light reading.
