Publisher's Summary

Welcome to San Fernando Valley, California, where Martha Rose and her coterie of quilters are enjoying life on the good side of retirement - until murder pulls a stitch out of their plans…
Martha and her besties Lucy and Birdie are set to expand their Quilty Tuesdays by inviting newcomer Claire Terry into their group. Though at forty Claire's a tad younger than their average age, her crafty reputation could perk up their patchwork proceedings, especially as they prepare for the fancy quilt show coming to town. But when they arrive at Claire's home and find her dead inside the front door, and her exquisite, prize-winning quilts soon missing, Martha is not one to leave a mystery unraveled. Especially if she wants to stop a killer from establishing a deadly pattern…

Terrible On So Many Levels

First the narration was childish and whiny. The female characters were supposed to be in the 55-70 year old age group but the narrator sounded like she was about 12 years old. Plus--what's going on here--is 60 the new 90?? Sixty isn't old enough to have the driving difficulties and elderly issues the story encompasses. These unlikable, catty women seemed to fit better into the mid to late 80's or even 90's age set not 55! Ridiculous.

Bad body image , couldn't finish

I was offended by the constant body shaming comments. The main character appears to be the author's idea of what size 16 women are like. (Even though the average American woman is a size 14). It seemed every few pages there was something "fat" people can't do or she was eating, always unhealthy food. The mystery wasn't interesting enough to overcome the fat shaming occurring I the book. I had to stop listening.

The author had done some research on quilting and wilt shows. However, as this book was probably intended to appeal to quilters, a bit more should have been included. I understand not wanting to bog the reader down in details, but saying there are only pieced and appliqué quilts and inferring that all quilts are judged I'm only those two categories is quite incorrect.
