Thea James has accepted an assignment as co-chairperson for Larkindale’s first quilt show extravaganza. Juggling the new assignment with running her antique business, she’s already feeling frayed when things start to unravel.
Mary-Alice Wentworth, a much-loved town matriarch, respected quilt judge, and Thea’s dear friend, is covertly conked on the head during the kick-off Quilt Show Soiree, throwing suspicion on her guests. It also appears that a valuable diamond brooch has been stolen during the attack. The family is furious. But is it because of their mugged mother or the missing diamonds?
When a renowned textile expert goes MIA and the famous Wentworth heritage quilt disappears, Larkindale’s reputation as a tourist haven is at risk. Thea attempts to piece the mystery together and save the town’s investment in the quilt show before Mary-Alice is attacked again . . . with far worse results.
I’ve recently been reading quite a few of these Quilts of Love novellas and have enjoyed the romantic stories, but I was interested (and slightly excited) when I heard of this one that had some mystery in it. Being new to this author, I was pleased with her writing style as well as her storyline. The suspense was very well written and I loved uncovering all the clues with Thea and getting to know the little town. The characters were also very well developed with a variety of personalities. This was another fantastic book to add to the Quilts of Love series and I look forward to further in the series! 5 stars!
