Publisher's Summary

Baseball may be America’s official favorite pastime, but for Martha Rose and her friends, quilting is far more fun… and a lot less dangerous.
A diamond brocade pattern is more quilter Martha Rose’s style than a baseball diamond - especially when it comes to the new eyesore of a stadium ruining her lovely San Fernando Valley neighborhood. Martha doesn’t know a bunt from a bundt cake, but when she stumbles upon the battered body of baseball coach Dax Martin, she doesn’t need a scorecard to know it’s foul play. LAPD homicide detective Arlo Beavers is convinced one of her neighbors is responsible. But Martha and her fellow quilters Lucy and Birdie soon discover a whole field of suspects who might have wanted to take the coach out of the game permanently.


What the Critics Say

"What’s knot to love? Mary Marks has crafted another winner stitched together with humor and heart - Martha Rose is one gutsy lady." (Rochelle Staab, author of the Mind for Murder mysteries)

Narrators need to be literate

Would you try another book from Mary Marks and/or Dara Rosenberg?

Yes to Mary Marks. I would totally avoid any book by this narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the character development and concise but clear scene descriptions.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yuck! First of all, this squeaky little teenie bopper comes on trying to be the voice of a 55-year old. OK, that happens frequently no matter how much it detracts from a book. But this narrator doesn't know some basic words. Corpse of Engineers??? It wouldn't have been so bad except that the CORPS of Engineers comes up in this story a lot. I was driving while listening and wanted to smash my speakers! Totally ruined this book for me.

Was Knot in My Backyard worth the listening time?

No. The story is all right, but the time listening to it was wasted.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money on the audio version. I did and now will have to buy a kindle copy.
