Amateur sleuth Maddy Madison and her Quilters Club cronies return with another cozy mystery set in Caruthers Corners, Indiana -- this time the murder of a Straw Hatter in the middle of the town's annual Christmas Parade. Maybe "return" is not the right word, in that this book is a prequel, taking place before the others in this bestselling series. Along with those four intrepid detectives -- Maddy, Cookie, Bootsie, and Lizzie -- you'll meet Leslie Ann Holmes, the precocious British "exchange student" who joins the sleuthing. Oh yes, there is a Christmas quilt, a family heirloom stolen by Beau Madison's long-lost brother Mycroft -- a mysterious patchwork masterpiece that traces back to the 1800s and legendary political cartoonist Thomas Nast! Merry Christmas from Marjory Sorrell Rockwell!
