Knot Ready for Murder by Mary Marks

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing “Knot Ready for Murder” the 9th instalment in the Quilting Mystery series by Mary Marks. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Martha and her Tuesday quilting bee again.
Before quilter Martha Rose can tie the knot to Crusher, she has to track down his missing first wife...

One loose thread threatens to unravel Martha's wedding plans: the groom-to-be married a pregnant teen to save her from scandal thirty years ago--and the marriage was never annulled. Now Crusher's wife Hadas is coming to LA, along with his sister Fanya. But soon after she arrives, their houseguest goes missing, with her room ransacked and a chloroform-soaked cloth left behind. Could her apparent abduction be connected to her brother's unsolved death from a hit-and-run six months ago? Martha and her quilting cohorts must find the pattern to solve the twin mysteries and determine if Crusher is still married--or now a widower...
Have I said how much I love this series and Martha Rose! Crushers wife” Hadas and his sister Fanya show up from New York and chaos ensues but Martha Rose is determined to get to the bottom of it and divorce papers signed.

Protagonist Martha Rose, is a strong, educated woman, and the side characters are realistic, slightly quirky too like her friend Birdie and Jazz.  The story mostly focused on Martha Rose and the guests from New York but her friends were there when it counted.  I think Fanya will be a good addition to the Tuesday Quilting Bee family.

I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it in one day. It was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises. I even learnt about Jewish customs and quilting tips which is always a bonus.

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.
