Book beginning:
Beatrice Coleman looked in horror at her neighbor Meadow Downey. "You mean we're not even invited? We're gate crashing?"
Book description:
"Beatrice has never crashed a party but now her fellow quilt guild member, Meadow Downey, is driving them to a Victorian mansion in the mountains beyond Dappled Hills, North Carolina. Muriel Starnes, an elderly eccentric, has organized a meeting of quilters to pick someone to administer a quilting scholarship.

But once the quilters arrive at the mansion, an ice storm leaves them stranded for the night. And by the next morning, they are one fewer—for Muriel has been sent to meet her maker. It’s up to Beatrice and the Village Quilters to figure out who has a guilty conscience."(goodreads)

Title: Quilt Trip by Elizabeth Spann Craig
Published December 3, 2013; Signet
Genre: cozy mystery

I guess it can snow in North Carolina in the winter. See the snow on the book cover?


  1. The plot of this one does sound amusing. Though I am usually critical of book beginnings that jump into things too quickly, the first sentence makes the book sound fun.

    1. I have neverg ate crashed, Brian. But it does sound as if it could be fun, in the right circumstances!

  2. I'm a quilter, so the title alone is enough to make me buy this book. The fact that it's a cozy mystery makes it even more appealing. I'm definitely curious about Miss Sissy's surprises (say that three times, fast!) and the gate-crashing quilters. Thanks for introducing me to this author.
    My Friday post is from THE WHISKEY BOTTLE IN THE WALL.
