    Quilty Magic

    Just like the intricate pieces of apatchwork quilt the pieces of the story fit together perfectly. The end result is a flwlessly written, thoroughly engaving mystery. a few red herrings and side stories add colour and interest. can't wait for the next volume.

    Excellent cozy mystery

    Ms. Marks has Martha Rose and her two best friends back in the thick of things again. This is the first of her books I have had the pleasure of reading; I found it delightful as only cozy mysteries can be. Martha is Jewish, her two friends, Lucy and Birdie, are not; this does not stop the intrepid trio from being fast and loyal friends, who respect each other, quilt together, and get in scraps together. I loved the fact that Ms. Marks explained a lot of the Jewish traditions especially in regard to the Sabbath and funerals. This added to the story and I loved the information she included, it was educational and interesting as well as adding to the depth of the story. In this book, Ms. Marks has Martha named as the executor of her old high school friend, Harriet Oliver’s estate. Martha hasn’t been in touch with Harriet for years. Harriet’s estate is worth millions and something seems fishy to Martha about the scene of her death. She was not found for 10 months after she died; it appears that Harriet led a sad and solitary life, her son drowned at five, her husband disappeared and was declared dead, and she had few friends. To make things even more interesting, Birdie is a walking talking CSI expert from watching television; she is up on all the latest “speak” in regard to criminal investigation. What follows are plot twists and turns, mysteries, murders, an entire list of suspects, antiques, a priceless quilt and other extremely valuable items are missing, greedy family members, and a body is found buried in Harriet’s garden. Things are really getting interesting in the quilting world. Martha also has new man, Crusher, in her life; will this be the real thing or does he have secrets? Is Martha’s luck about to change in regard to relationships and just why is Arlo Beavers sniffing around again? Sorry, I can’t spoil the story and tell you. There are quite a few plots going on in this story and Ms. Marks did a wonderful job of bringing all the threads together to form a complete and delightful story. You will not be bored with this book. Ms. Marks also included a small tutorial on quilting at the end of the book that I found fascinating. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a solid cozy mystery with a lot of interesting elements, plots, twists, turns, and quilting. I received this book from the publisher and Netgalley in return for an honest review.

    Wonderful Book!

    Gone but Knot Forgotten by Mary Marks is the third book in A Quilting Mystery series. Martha Rose is fifty-six, Jewish, suffers from migraines and fibromyalgia (I know how she feels). Martha receives a letter stating she is the executor of Harriet Gordon Oliver’s will. Martha has not seen Harriet in over twenty years. They drifted apart after her divorce from Aaron Rose. Martha immediately contact the attorney, Deke Abernathy. Turns out that Martha and Deke were at UCLA at the same time (Deke was a football star). Martha will be responsible for disposing of the assets of the estate and following Harriet’s wishes in her will. Martha feels she should do this for her friend, but she has no idea what she is getting into. Harriet’s only son, Jonah died when he was five years old and her husband disappeared many years ago. Nathan, her husband, was declared dead when he did not return after seven years (and they could not locate him). After arranging for Harriet’s funeral, Martha then checks out Harriet’s house. When she starts checking the insurance inventory against items in the house, there are several Early American antiques missing as well as Harriet’s jewelry. Martha gets help from her weekly quilting group members Lucy and Bertie. They start going through the house item by item. Martha is dog sitting her ex-boyfriend’s dog (he used to be a police dog). The dog starts digging in the backyard. Upon investigation they discover a body. Looks like the have solved the mystery of the disappearing Nathan Oliver. Before Harriet can be buried, it is discovered that Harriet was murdered. Martha feels she needs to find out who killed her friend as well as took items from her house. Martha, Birdie, and Lucy set out to solve the murders as well as discover who took the Early American antiques. Martha decides to keep Harriet’s house under guard. She calls her friend, Yossi Levy (aka Crusher). Crusher is a member of the Valley Eagles (motorcycle club). Two of the members agree to watch the house. Yossi is hoping to get closer to Martha. He proposed once and is determined to get Martha to commit. He slowly starts leaving a few items at Martha’s house each time he stays the night. Martha feels that Yossi is rushing and needs him to back off (I have no idea why). When she finds out something that Yossi kept secret, will Martha break it off? I found Gone but Knot Forgotten to be a pleasurable book to read. It has fun characters and a good mystery. I did not understand why Martha kept pushing away Yossi (maybe something in her past or commitment issues). I wish that it had been explained in the book (it could have been mentioned in the first two books which I have not had a chance to read). Gone but Knot Forgotten can be enjoyed without having read the first two books in the series. I give Gone but Knot Forgotten 4.5 out of 5 stars. It was a pleasure to read this book. I received a complimentary copy of Gone but Knot Forgotten from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
