Overview

Book #4 of the Someday Quilts Mystery series

Nell and the crafty Someday Quilters undertake their first cold case in the latest addition to this bewitching series.

After their quilting retreat upstate, the Someday Quilts ladies return to Archers Rest to prepare for the town's big anniversary celebration. But their plans are unexpectedly derailed by the discovery of a human skeleton in Nell's grandmother's backyard-making Eleanor the prime suspect in a murder. But a skeleton isn't the only thing that's long been buried. When a wave of vandalism raises fears that the town's bygone history of witchcraft has been reawakened, secrets are unearthed that could change life in Archers Rest forever. In addition to a thrilling mystery and the warm camaraderie of the ladies, The Devil's Puzzle is full of the quilting lore and techniques that Clare O'Donohue's readers adore.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Near the outset of O'Donohue's satisfying fourth cozy set in the Hudson River town of Archers Rest (after 2010's The Double Cross), Oliver White, a prominent English artist, shows series heroine Nell Fitzgerald a grim discovery: a skeleton at the bottom of a hole dug in the rose garden of Nell's grandmother, Eleanor Cassidy. Oliver was planning that night to propose to Eleanor, who runs a quilting shop in Archers Rest, but as Oliver indicates to Nell, this unsettling find has left him in no mood to discuss marriage. While Nell investigates what appears to be a homicide, Mayor Larry Williams, who owns the local travel agency, seizes on the mystery of the skeleton to promote the town's upcoming Fourth of July and 350th anniversary celebration. Nell's special relationship with the Archers Rest police chief, Jesse Dewalt, and her helpful group of quilters add warmth and interest. (Oct.)
Library Journal
A skeleton in Nell's (The Double Cross) grandmother's backyard brings up talk of witchcraft and other long-buried secrets.
