LET'S GET COZY! SHEAR TROUBLE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
SHEAR TROUBLE
A Southern Quilting Mystery
BY ELIZABETH CRAIG

ABOUT THE BOOK:
As the leaves begin to fall in idyllic Dappled Hills, someone puts too fine a point on a local ladies’ man. Fortunately, the detective skills of quilter Beatrice Coleman are a cut above the rest....

The Village Quilters of Dappled Hills, North Carolina, are desperate to finish their quilts before an upcoming show. To help, fellow member Posy has opened the back room of her shop, the Patchwork Cottage, for everyone to use. But the ladies are less than thrilled when Phyllis Stitt and Martha Helmsley—members of their rival quilting guild, the Cut-Ups—ask to join them.

Phyllis is hoping to leave the Cut-Ups and join up with the Village Quilters now that Martha’s dating her ex-fiancé, Jason Gore. She’s not pleased when he visits the shop and even more upset when her new shears disappear. After offering to search for them, Beatrice discovers Jason with the shears buried in his unfaithful heart. Now she must sharpen her sleuthing skills to find a killer before someone else’s life is cut short.…

INCLUDES QUILTING TIPS!

Investigating the death of a former boyfriend (with your favorite scissors!) sounds like a delicious premise for a cozy.
