This book was better than New Mercies but not quite as charming as Prayers For Sale.
The characters of this book are part of a quilting club. They get together weekly to work on a new quilt at someone’s home. You get to know a lot of characters, and I got confused as to who everyone was and what their individual idiosyncracy happened to be. I should have kept a list when they started being introduced, but I hate books that feel like homework.
The “big ending” of the book that you wait for — the whodunnit for the local murder — is “big” and charming. You may not get the answer that you are looking for but discover that it does not matter.
