Overview

Private Investigator Rachel Lyons discovers a corpse while hiking in the recently burned Cleveland County woods. At first it seems it was the Southern California wildfire that did the poor old man in. But then she sees his ravaged leg.

A week later, while standing on the deck of her Escondido home listening to the hyenas laugh at the zebras, Lyons gets a phone call that starts her down a road toward hell. The trip changes her from a reasonably happy middle aged woman working a second career to a tortured soul searching for clues in the stitches of a quilt.

Editorial Reviews

Anglers Rest
I was delighted when I spotted via Amazon just before Christmas. I had high hopes for the book and I wasn't disappointed. In fact I was only about a third of the way through the book when I checked if there was another in the series, which there was!

The series, opens with the introduction of the narrator Rachel, who with her husband Matt run a private investigator business. Rachel has a background in libraries and is a quilter looking for a regular American style quilting bee.

I am not a quilter so I thought I may get bored or lost whenever that entered into the story, instead I found the opposite happened.

I would recommend Unraveling Ada to any real mystery lover. Rachel Lyons, this Croc wearing silver Rossi 38 caliber revolver toting grandma takes the reader on an unforgettable journey of a tortured family and the deep secrets that they have been trying to hide from the world.All in all a good read, this reader highly recommends Unraveling Ada and eagerly waits for the promised sequel.

Rachel Lyons is a welcome addition to the female detective genre. A retired librarian who is relatively new to the P.I. world, she splits her free time between quilting bees and target practice. The best part of this book is getting to know Rachel and her world - she's got a strong, distinct voice that I think many mystery lovers will enjoy. The supporting characters are varied and distinctive - each one of them seem to have their own unique stories to tell. And the quilting information is fasci

Although private investigator Rachel Lyons is the main character, the book is full of interesting characters ... interesting in more ways than one! As the newest member of a hand-quilting bee, Rachel quickly finds out that she was selected to participate in order to tap her skills as an investigator. After spending an entire night quilting with seven other women, she finds herself embroiled in a dark, family mystery that takes every ounce of her intelligence to solve, and more importantly, to st
