Quilt Trip: A Southern Quilting Mystery - Book Beginnings on Friday and Friday 56

What happens when a group of women (all quilters) are trapped for days inside a creaky old home during an ice storm? No electricity, ghosts, a pantry with limited food, and... murder?

I enjoyed this sweet cozy mystery - maybe because I'm a quilter and Southern, or maybe because it was a fun escape.

Book Beginning:
     Beatrice Coleman looked in horror at her neighbor Meadow Downey. "You mean we're not even invited? We're gate-crashing?"
     They were in Meadow's aging green van and Meadow was speedily driving them to a home just slightly outside their town of Dappled Hills, North Carolina.

Friday 56 (at 56% on my Kindle):
Sometime in the middle of the night, they were all awakened by a piercing scream from upstairs. The fire had burned out and the library was completely dark.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Number of Pages: 305 Pages
Amazon Link: Quilt Trip

Gotta have it. I am addicted to these cozy mysteries with their quirky characters and colorful covers. They always have such fun titles too. Just read and reviewed A Tale of Two Biddies and had a blast!
