New from Quilts of Love: A Stitch in Crime

Thea’s first quilt show is coming apart at the seams!

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.

Find out more and purchase a copy at the Quilts of Love Books website.

Author and speaker Cathy Elliott nourishes her night-owl habit by creating cozy mysteries and more on her trusty laptop in Anderson, California. Like the protagonist in her new mystery, Cathy is an avid quilter. Besides collecting (too much) cool fabric, she also enjoys hunting for antique treasures.

A Stitch in Crime is a wonderful addition to Quilts of Love series.   However, it isn't a murder mystery.  It is centered around a quilt as all the Quilts of Love books are, but it is a theft mystery.  Elliott will have you turning the pages as fast as you can to see how this crime is resolved.  A cozy mystery right in time to curl up by the fire with.  You'll love it and won't want to put the book down.   

About Quilts of Love: Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings.
