This series has quickly become a new favorite!! There is so much packed into these stories.. murder, mystery, romances, family ties, friendships, quilting and art..
I feel so drawn to Nell and her grandmother, Elenor, her dog, Barney and Jess, the police chief Nell has been "seeing". Not to mention the quilting group and descriptions of the quilts.. so much to love!!
We had two new characters in this book that I hope we hear more from in the next books.. Can't wait to read more soon!!
Description from the publisher:
In the sleepy town of Archers Rest, Nell Fitzgerald is finishing her first quilt and preparing for her first date- with Police Chief Jesse Dewalt. When Jesse stands her up, it turns out he has a good reason-the body of a murdered young woman has been discovered near the Hudson River.
Meanwhile the members of Nell's quilting circle encourage her to take drawing classes with the famous artist Oliver White. When Nell's professor meets her grandmother Eleanor, owner of the Someday Quilts shop, he seems instantly smitten. But once another woman's body is found outside her grandmother's home under a blanket of snow, Nell begins to patch together clues and follow a path of evidence that suggests her professor may also have a degree in the art of murder.
