I'm happy to be a stop on the blog tour for
Book 7 in the Quilting Mysteries
by Mary Marks

While quilter Martha Rose awaits the birth of her granddaughter, a neighborhood girl appears at her door with a mystery that can’t be pinned down . . .

  Martha’s eager to finish the baby quilt she’s making for her new granddaughter, but she scraps those plans when a young girl rings her doorbell begging for help. Poppy Halaby, the foster child of Martha’s neighbor, is an orphan whose parents were murdered by a killer who was never caught. When Poppy’s doting foster mom falls suspiciously ill, Martha is determined to keep the child safe. But she’ll have to unravel more about Poppy’s parents to stitch a broken family back together again—and prevent another crime cut from the same cloth . . .

I don’t think author Mary Marks could write a bad book if she tried. KNOT ON HER LIFE is her latest testimony to that.

Protagonist, Martha Rose is back and better than ever. I’ve truly enjoyed watching her grow through the past seven books, and look forward to following her for many years to come. (Are you listening, Kensington? J)

This seventh installment in the Quilting Mysteries acts as proof to all hardcore mystery readers that cozy mysteries aren’t the fluff they think they are. While still following cozy mystery guidelines, and yes, it has some of the sweet fluffiness we cozy readers love, KNOT ON HER LIFE is a much deeper, richer tale than many in this genre. It is of course above all else, a mystery. An extremely well done mystery that had me locked in from the first chapter. And each chapter after that pulled me deeper into not just the mystery, but the entire story.

Quite possibly the best in the series to date, KNOT ON HER LIFE is a book you’re not going to want to miss.
