Today I am discussing "Knot on Her Life" the 7th installment in the "Quilting Mysteries" by Mary Marks. I wasn't sure if I had read any in the series but after a few pages it all came back to me. I am very glad I read this installment and thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Martha and her Tuesday quilting bee.
Print Length: 288 pages

Genre: Cozy Mystery
While quilter Martha Rose awaits the birth of her granddaughter, a neighborhood girl appears at her door with a mystery that can’t be pinned down . .
Martha’s eager to finish the baby quilt she’s making for her new granddaughter, but she scraps those plans when a young girl rings her doorbell begging for help. Poppy Halaby, the foster child of Martha’s neighbor, is an orphan whose parents were murdered by a killer who was never caught. When Poppy’s doting foster mom falls suspiciously ill, Martha is determined to keep the child safe. But she’ll have to unravel more about Poppy’s parents to stitch a broken family back together again—and prevent another crime cut from the same cloth . . .
Protagonist Martha Rose, is a strong, educated woman, and the side characters are realistic, slightly quirky too like her sister Giselle and Sonia. The characters are/were well rounded.
I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it in one sitting. It was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises. I even learnt something about Jewish and Muslim customs and religious life along with quilting tips which is always a binus.
I look forward to reading the next installment in this series.
I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Kensington Books and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my OWN.
