A most delightful book!

I had the privilege of reviewing this wonderful book in a series that I thoroughly enjoy, and I was not disappointed!

Knot What You Think by Mary Marks

Martha Rose and her quilting friends are back with another adventure. The girls are helping Birdie get ready for her wedding, and Jazz, the newest member, is designing her dress. He’s also creating a new line of pet products. One of his good friends, Dolly, has ordered some things for her dog, but when Jazz goes by to drop them off, no one answers the door. He convinces Martha Rose to go with him the next day to make sure Dolly is all right. She’s not. Someone has hit her in the head with a hand weight.

With Jazz at the top of the suspect list, Martha Rose has no choice but to investigate. Dolly’s husband is currently in jail for fraud, and the list of people who want to get even is very long. It also includes a bitter ex-wife of Dolly’s husband, the stepson (was she having an affair with him?!), and friends of Martha Rose’s Uncle Isaac.

As if things weren’t complicated enough, Martha Rose’s love life just became more complicated, especially when her ex-boyfriend, Detective Arlo Beavers, finds out that her current boyfriend, Crusher, has proposed. Will the girls be able to solve the murder before Birdie’s wedding? And is Martha Rose going to have a happily ever after of her own, or will she end up singing the blues?

This is another delightful entry in Mary Marks’ Quilting Mystery series. I think I’m going to have to brush up on my deducing skills, because this is the second book in a row (see the Vangie Vale review) that had me guessing until the end. There’s plenty of intrigue, scandal, little old ladies telling off the bad guys, with just a pinch of romance. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I may have to read the whole series again!

I have always loved to read, and carry a book with me wherever I go. I’ve written for several online sites, doing book reviews and author interviews. After graduating in 2000 from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree, I was a teacher for a while before deciding my destiny was to write, not to mold young minds. Writing for me is like taking an exciting journey, or going on a welty, as my parents say. I don’t know where my stories are going to take me. I just hang on and enjoy the ride.
