Sammy review 2013 Well! I loved reading this book because I knew my mom and aunt Kaylen had both read the same copy and it was fun to have a book passed on to me. I would recommend the book only to someone who is looking for a light/silly read and even then, it might not be my first choice. The book is set in Foggy Point, Washington. The main character is Harriet, a young widow who moves in with her aunt and takes over her long arm quilting business. There’s a lot that this book has in common with daytime TV (I’m really just guessing, because I don’t have a TV and I’m always at work during the day) the main character is continually facing new challenges and is always the center of attention, she falls in love with a younger man, her aunt unexpected leaves her with a home and business, her parents are internationally known scientists and she speaks 7 languages. I know, right!? Anyways, I’m not racing to read the next book in the series...

ckh review 2013: A cozy mystery; I would compare the story to a "Murder, She Wrote". The story is engaging with likable, sweet characters, interesting quilting references, and no gory details. I was expecting to recognize the story location/scenery on the Oregon coast and was disappointed; I do think that the vitamin factory in the story was a takeoff on the Tillamook Cheese factory… there were a few unexpected twists in the story to keep my interest but overall a fairly common story with an humdrum ending. (Borrowed from Kaylen/purchased in Tillamook on a Girls Week/Spring Break Adventure 2012.)

Kaylen's review 2012: Harriet Truman returns to Foggy Point, Washington to take over her aunt's long arm quilting studio while her Aunt Beth goes on a cruise to Europe. All the quilters are getting ready for a big quit show in Tacoma when one of the quilters is murdered at her work. Harriet's studio gets ransacked and quilts are destroyed. Drama erupts with quilters, the family dynamics of the murder victum and Harriet.
