It’s Christmas time in the small town of Archer’s Rest in Hudson Valley. The town is busily preparing for the holiday festivities when tragedy strikes.

When a beloved teacher is accused of burning down his family home, Nell Fitzgerald is the only one in town who believes in his innocence and she’s determined to prove it. With the help of her friends at her grandmother’s shop, Someday Quilts, Nell starts her own investigation.

This is a novella from Clare O’Donohue’s Someday Quilts Mystery series.

Nell's grandmother taught her by example, not to be drawn to material things but to give when things are needed and to give freely. All in all, it's better to give than to receive; but she's finding that the latest project is fraught with trouble. First there are the children whom she is teaching to make a quilt in order to sell it to raise money for the Fire Department their small town shares with nearby Morrison in upstate Hudson Valley in New York State.

I had no trouble reading this story as a stand-alone despite it's being the fifth entry in the series and is a good introduction. It was quick, sweet and tugged all of the heart-strings.

"Cathedral Windows" is a quilting pattern and all that Charlie, a beloved teacher, has left when his house burns down. Although a hometown boy, he was away for awhile serving overseas in Afghanistan. He returns home, the last of his family, and different from the boy the town knew. He has trouble fitting back in

"Cathedral Windows" is a short cozy mystery. It's a feel-good Christmas story with enjoyable characters. The characters and setting were developed enough to give a nice feel of small town life. The mystery wasn't very complex due to how short the story was, but whodunit was not obvious. It was a clue-based mystery, and whodunit could be guessed from the clues. The suspense was from (non-romantic) relationship conflicts and physical danger.

There was no sex. There was no explicit bad language. Ove
