AN AWESOME REVIEW: "Deadly Threads … a modern classic."

An awesome review of DEADLY THREADS is in from John Valeri at the Hartford Examiner:

"Deadly Threads is an intelligent and intricately plotted mystery that is written with uncommon grace. Cleland delivers all the familiar elements that fans have come to expect while also expanding her repertoire of collectibles and continuing to reveal layers of her characters, who become more complex with each entry. While the book may not qualify as an antique just yet, one could make the argument that it’s a modern classic."

The entire review is HERE.

“I'm so completely thrilled!” Jane said. “Wow! ‘Queen of the Antiques Mystery’ from Fresh Fiction, ‘a winner’ from Publisher’s Weekly, and ‘a modern classic’ from the Hartford Examiner. I couldn’t be more proud.”
