    Bridget's Review

    Nell has just finished her first quilt and it's almost time for her date with the Chief of Police, Jesse Dewalt. As time passes, Nell realizes that Jesse isn't coming and their date has been cancelled without an apologetic phone call. Nell is frustrated but soon finds out the reason for Jesse ditching her. A woman has been found dead in a river.

    Nell and her quilting friends have been discussing drawing classes and soon, Nell decides to join the class with Oliver White as her teacher. Nell introduces Oliver to her grandmother but soon wishes that she hadn't. She's had a bad feeling about him from the start. When a dead body shows up near her grandmother's house and all the clues point toward Oliver as the killer, Nell must act fast to crack this case and save the people she cares about.

    This is a great whodunnit? book. You can't help but break out the magnifying glass and note the clues while reading this delightful mystery.

    In the next book in the series, Nell has decided to stay in Archer's Rest, help out at Someday Quilts and follow her dream of becoming an artist. Nell signs up for classes at the nearby college and hopes to take a drawing class being offered by a renown artist. The class is full but the artist has become smitten with Nell's grandmother, Eleanor, and tells her to just show up for the class.

    Nell finds herself attracted to the local sheriff, Jesse, but he stands her up on their very first date. As she heads home, blaming herself for always picking the wrong man, she finds out the sheriff had a good reason for standing her up. The body of young woman has been found near the river. Jesse begs her to stay out of the investigation, but when a second body turns up, a woman from her drawing class, and clues seem to lead to the man who is becoming closer and closer to her grandmother, Nell can't help herself from following a sort of "drunkard's path" of clues in the investigation and the other circle members are along for the ride.

    I LIKED IT!!!!

    I love reading series books one right after the other, the authors and characters grow and evolve right before your eyes. This author knows quilting, she worked on the HGTV show, Simply Quilts, for four seasons, eventually becoming the Supervising Producer. But after reading these books I have learned that she is also quite a storyteller.

    You can tell just by reading the author's words she is a true quilter that understands the tactile life of finding the perfect fabrics for the perfect quilt. She also knows how to piece together a good mystery. Stitch those things together, add a hint of romance and humor and you have a cozy mystery.

    Her words not only drew me into the mysteries but into the Someday Quilts shop. It was almost like I was going through the aisles, feeling, touching the fabrics. Stacking the fabrics, standing back viewing how they would compliment and contrast with each other. I used to spend hours searching for just the right fabric choice, calculating the yardage and choosing the right pattern. These books not only entertained me with their mysteries but brought back some truly wonderful memories.

    I think if I could change one thing in my life it would be to follow my bliss after high school and have worked on my crafts and maybe opened a craft store instead of studying and working in the accounting field, minus the murder, of course.

    I have to thank Mary at Plume for sending me this wonderful series for review and I hope there will be many more adventures forthcoming in the Someday Quilts Mystery Series!!

    Nell is a great leading lady. She loves a good mystery, and can't help but constantly end up in the middle of any trouble that comes to Archer's rest. The character's in the book make you wish you could go to Archer's Rest and meet everyone there.

    The budding romance between Chief Jesse Dewalt and Nell has just the right tension between them to keep you reading. Eleanor Cassidy, Nell's grandmother, owns the quilt shop. As a quilter, I love reading about the quilt circle, and love the development of the characters as each new book is released. I feel like I've meet a whole new group of quilting buddies.

    This is an excellent quilt-related mystery.

    I enjoyed this quilt mystery and will look for her other books in the Someday Quilts series.
