Overview

Harriet Truman's husband kept secret from her that he had a terminal genetic illness. Embittered and angry, she returns to Foggy Point, Washington, the small town where she spent some of her happier childhood years, to fill in at the long-arm quilting studio while her aunt Beth takes a well-deserved cruise of Europe. It's her aunt's plan to get Harriet back into living, and to that end she has signed over both her business and her house--which now belong to Harriet. In her first few days in town, Harriet meets her aunt's best friend, Avanell Jalbert, and the other members of their quilting group, the Loose Threads. She also meets Avanell's younger son Aiden, a handsome veterinarian newly returned from a stint in Africa who doesn't hesitate a second making it clear he finds Harriet more than interesting. Then Avanell is murdered, and no one seems to have any idea why. The same night, Harriet's studio is vandalized. Before too long, it becomes clear the two events are related. The question is, can Harriet figure out what that connection is before whoever killed Avanell decides to do the same to her.

    Could not put it down

    I was in the mood for somthing that got me thinking but not to overly involved. This was funny, thrilling, creative and over all a wonderful book. I enjoyed the story line and thought that the author took a unique insight to the world of quilting and the northwest.
    One of the things that I appericated is that she wrote the story so that you would not have to be familiar to quilting or the northwest to enjoy it. She was discriptive but kept the story moving at the same time. I also like the fact that the chapters were shorter becuase it gave me a good stoping point... when I wanted to stop.

    Usually this sort of light fiction is sappy and hard to read because of the simplistic writing. NOT this book! I am enjoying it tremendously. I do skip some of the detailed quilt info, even though I enjoy quilting a bit. BUT, the characters who support the main character are well developed, the main character, Harriet, is an interesting person, and this author can write - that really enhances a story line! :) In fact this series is beginning to remind me of the best of the Lillian Jackson Braun The-Cat-Who books. Try one of these and relax. This series if far better than the other few "quilting-lady" series I have flipped through and rejected.

    An easy read. Enjoyed the story and mystery involved. Not necessarily a very
    challenging read. But worth my time.

    Who Did it and Why?

    QUILT AS DESIRED by Arlene Sachitano- It was a fast moving Harriet Truman/Loose Threads Mystery. To sort of take from the book jacket in my own words, Harriet Truman was bitter, angry, and annoyed that her husband kept a secret from her that he had a terminal genetic illness. After he passed away, she felt like she never really knew him and returned to the small town of Foggy Point, Washington where she grew up with her Aunt Beth and spent many happy childhood years. Her aunt wanted to get Harriet to live her life again and she decided to take a trip to Europe and leave Harriet in charge of her house and long arm quilting business till she got back. What Harriet didn't know was that her aunt Beth signed over the house and the long arm quilting business to Harriet. It's hers and she's the new owner. Well, needless to say, in the first few days there she meets Avanell, her aunt's best friend and all of her quilting buddies. What transpires is the murder of Avanell and attacks on Harriet. You don't realize who it is till the end or why it happened. Fun, fast and enjoyable. I ordered the other two books online.

    Great book for those quilters that enjoy a good mystery!

    I love mysteries, and my favorite hobby is quilting...this book was a perfect match for me. I've ordered the second book in the series to see how the character Harriet will develop. I will admit that while I was reading the book, I kept on changing my mind on "Who done it!", so it was a pleasant surprise when the real murderer was exposed. It was a joy reading and being able to relate to the quilting terms and definitions, and of course a quilter's way of thinking about quilts, friends, family, and life. I am looking forward to the delivery of my second book...

    This book did not hold my interest.

    I just couldn't get into this book. Even with the quilt talk which I love being a quilter, it just didn't hold my interest. It dragged. If you like slow reads its for you.

    Is Quilt as Desired desirable?

    I just finished reading this book on my nook. It kept me occupied while I have been in bed with stomache problems, since I am interested in quilting and quilt related stories. In my opinion the Elm Creek series is a lot better than this one.

    A quilter's delight

    I enjoyed the book which makes me want to start my own quilt shop = though I would hand quilt as I am not into machine quilting. A great book for light reading on a night when nothing else seems appealing.
