About the Book

Knot on Her Life (A Quilting Mystery)
Cozy Mystery

While quilter Martha Rose awaits the birth of her granddaughter, a neighborhood girl appears at her door with a mystery that can’t be pinned down . .

Martha’s eager to finish the baby quilt she’s making for her new granddaughter, but she scraps those plans when a young girl rings her doorbell begging for help. Poppy Halaby, the foster child of Martha’s neighbor, is an orphan whose parents were murdered by a killer who was never caught. When Poppy’s doting foster mom falls suspiciously ill, Martha is determined to keep the child safe. But she’ll have to unravel more about Poppy’s parents to stitch a broken family back together again—and prevent another crime cut from the same cloth . . .

My Review: 4 Stars

Martha Rose is happily preparing for a grandchild which sets the stage for the entrance of Poppy, a little girl who saw her parents murdered.  The child’s parents were different religions and Marks does a wonderful job of showing us each world. This was a heartwarming cozy that can be read as a standalone or as a part of the series. I loved the character of Crusher, the gentle giant, and want to belong to that quilt group!

Cozy Prizes Friday: Knot What You Think

 

Okay, stitchers! Today we have a quilting mystery, Knot What You Think on Cozy Prizes Friday.  I always love how quilting mysteries are so good at tying up all the loose ends!  Be sure to scroll down and find the Prize Guy to enter to win a print copy of Knot What You Think.

 

The newest member of Martha’s close-knit quilting circle has an eye for couture. But when the designer’s fingerprints are found blanketing a crime scene, Martha must prove that he didn’t have a hand in homicide! 
 
Martha Rose is alarmed by the discovery of Dolleen Doyle’s dead body, especially when evidence suggests a fellow quilter committed the crime.  Set on clearing her pal, Martha searches for answers—but with ties to a convicted fraudster’s stolen millions and a secret office room, the victim’s past raises even more questions. As Martha inches towards the culprit, she learns that wrapping the case up—and living to baste another square—will be trickier than she ever imagined . . .
