    New Series Off To A Great Start

    I enjoy thrillers and chillers, but there’s just something about a cozy murder mystery with a theme that always draws me back. Born and raised a Southern, when that theme involves quilting it brings back memories of my childhood. Throw in a murder mystery and a cast of zany characters and you have the makings of a fun read. QUILT OR INNOCENCE by Elizabeth Craig fits this bill perfectly. Retired art museum curator Beatrice Coleman moves to the quiet town of Dappled Hills, N.C., to be near her daughter, Piper. Leaving the big city of Atlanta behind, Beatrice soon learns life is much different in a small mountain village. Knowing all there is to know about quilts, except how to make them, Beatrice quickly finds herself a member of the Village Quilters Guild. Just when she’s catching up on the local gossip Judith, the landlord of the Patchwork Cottage quilt shop, is found dead. It seems everyone loved to hate her. Now Beatrice has to use her expert eye to catch the killer. Author Elizabeth Craig has captured the essence of a small town with its zany characters, quirky ways, endless gossip, and helpful neighbors. Beatrice Coleman is a mature protagonist with a fun personality. The cast of supporting characters are unique and well-developed creating a neighborhood that is realistic and caring with an odd ball or two for fun. The action is fast-pace with twists and turns and a long list of suspects that will keep you guessing until the last stitch. Like Beatrice, you don’t have to know how to quilt to enjoy this delightful book. QUILT OR INNOCENCE is the first installment in the Southern Quilting Mystery series and gets the series off to a great start. The book also includes quilting tips and yummy recipes. In addition, readers have a sneak peek at the next installment in the series scheduled for release in early 2013.   Quilt Or Innocence by Elizabeth Craig, A Southern Quilting Mystery, Obsidian, @2012, ISBN: 978-0451237330, Paperback, 304 Pages FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    I enjoyed this one completely. She has the cozy feel, but it is a mystery with a real feel. I'm a quilter, I've seen the dynamics of the group. I zoomed right through this one because I wanted to know! Looking forward to the next one.

    I adore this book. This was a good mystery that had me followin

    I adore this book. This was a good mystery that had me following the clues along with Beatrice in this fast-moving whodunit. The author did a good job in delivering a well-designed mystery filled with plenty of suspects that quickly became a page turner as I had to know who did what to whom. With an intriguing storyline, likeable characters and entertaining dialogue, this is a great beginning to a wonderfully crafted series and I can’t wait for the next book. A bonus of quilting tips, one of which I didn’t know about, and recipes are also included.
