Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing blog tour

Today, we feature the newest novel by Kathy Cano-Murillo entitled Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing.

We did have a Q&A all set up for this post, but, unfortunately, our old email account was recently suspended and we, therefore, cannot access any stored information, including the one from Ms. Murillo's publicist, who organized this entire tour.

With all this said, we would like to send our sincere apologies to the author and her publicist.

Below is our posting for the day.

About the book: Scarlet doesn't do things like other people. Unfortunately, this leads to some misunderstandings, like when her manager at the fabric store mistakes her measuring methods for assault. But while she may not be as wealthy as her siblings, or as respected as her grandmothers-strict seamstresses whose criticism left Scarlet permanently pattern-phobic-she will be soon. She's been offered a position with Johnny "Scissors" Tijeras, the hottest young designer in New York. To raise money for her move, Scarlet opens an after-hours sewing school in a local record shop, attracting a surprising mix of students. Future freeform garment makers include a high-strung office manager whose marriage counselor thinks she needs to learn to break some rules, and an elderly seamstress with a secret past. But as friendships grow, the lines between teacher and student blur, proving there is no single pattern for happiness-it is always a custom fit.

Available on Amazon

This book is currently in our TBR list and is waiting for one of our reviewers to rate it.

We are hoping the author will stop by today to answer questions from our readers.
