Review; A Patchwork of Clues by Sally Goldenbaum
Last I was fortunate enough to recieve a press copy of the cosy mystery A Patchwork of Clues by Sally Goldenbaum through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.
Description from Netgalley
Small-town quilters look for a killer's pattern in this delightful series by the national bestselling author of the Seaside Knitters mysteries . . .
On her morning jog, Portia Paltrow comes upon the dead body of antiques store owner and college professor Owen Hill, sprawled across the back doorstep of Selma Parker's fabric and quilt shop on Elderberry Road. The site of their Saturday morning quilting bee just became a crime scene. Violent crime is rare in the charming village of Crestwood, Kansas, and rumors are soon circulating of a burglary gone wrong. But who would rob a quilt shop? No, Owen Hill has been murdered.
Selma and her assistant manager Susan are understandably at loose ends over the crime. So while the tightly knit covey of quilters—who range from a new mother to a wise octogenarian—work together on a Crystal Pattern quilt for Selma's store's anniversary, they also get busy stitching together a patchwork of clues. But they'd better work fast—before a crafty killer bolts . . .

My Thoughts on the BookA Patchwork of Clues was a charming and light read with some great characters. The mystery and the solving was a bit slow, but that's not a bad thing in this book as I loved "hanging out" with the characters, especially the quilt group.
