LET'S GET COZY! QUILT TRIP: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
QUILT TRIP 
A Southern Quilting Mystery 
BY ELIZABETH CRAIG
ABOUT THE BOOK: 
As a quilter, retired folk art curator Beatrice Coleman likes to have all the seams stitched together—but her plans keep getting tangled up in unexpected ways...

Beatrice has never crashed a party but now her fellow quilt guild member, Meadow Downey, is driving them to a Victorian mansion in the mountains beyond Dappled Hills, North Carolina. Muriel Starnes, an elderly eccentric, has organized a meeting of quilters to pick someone to administer a quilting scholarship. The fact that the Village Quilters weren’t invited isn’t enough to keep Meadow from speaking her piece.

But once the quilters arrive at the mansion, it seems they may never leave. An ice storm sends an old tree crashing across the driveway, leaving them stranded for the night. And by the next morning, they are one fewer—for Muriel has been sent to meet her maker. With everyone in the house a suspect, it’s up to Beatrice and the Village Quilters to figure out who has a guilty conscience before someone else gets tied up in knots.

Includes Quilting Tips!

Trapped in a Victorian mansion in the mountains, in an ice storm with a killer. Not the way I want to spend my time. But I like to read about it. I'd like to find out how Beatrice and her Village Quilters solve this one.
