Sorting through the estate of a wealthy recluse may sound like a fascinating task, but when the skeletons in the closets turn out to be real, Martha and her quilting pals wish they’d stuck to basting and batting. . .
Martha Rose is stunned when she hears that her best friend from high school has passed away. Her shock doubles when she learns that Harriet Oliver made her the executor of her estate. But when investigators determine that Harriet was murdered, Martha recruits her fellow quilters to help find the culprit. She’s mastered the art of piecing together blocks to create intricate quilts, but piecing together her friend’s murder will prove far more challenging. . .
What I Thought:
This book grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept it the whole way through. Martha just can't keep away from dead bodies. In this story, she is contacted by a lawyers office and finds out she has been made the executrix of a long lost friends will. The friend, Harriet, had been dead for more than ten months in her home before anyone found her. Martha, of course, knew there was foul play before the authorities ever did. So she sets out, with the help of her quilting buddies, Birdie and Lucy, to find out the truth. Of course, there has to be a quilt involved. On top of it all, Martha's love life is on the rebound, but she isn't sure what she wants. This is a great read. Good job Mary.
