    Love it!

    One night while Martha is working on a baby’s quilt, there is a knock at her door. An eight year old girl named Poppy asks for her help. They run over to Martha’s neighbor who is out cold on the floor. Martha finds out that her neighbor is Poppy’s foster mother. Can Martha find the truth about Poppy’s parents’ murder before someone else is found on the floor? I loved this novel. It kept my interest and I couldn’t figure out whodunit. I loved learning about both Jewish and Muslim beliefs. I loved all of the characters and how they learned to respect Martha’s input and observations on the mystery. I can’t wait for the next installment to this series. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Quilting, Mystery & Jewish rituals-*****

    This quilting series is like visiting old friends. Martha's neighbor, Sonia Spigelman, has become a foster parent to eight year old Poppy Halaby. Martha gets herself involved in trying to find relatives of Poppy's parents, only to find herself facing "Jewish Royalty" on Rachel's side and "Muslim Royalty' on Ali's side, all the while trying to figure out whose side had them murdered - or was it Ali's undercover job with the FBI? Interesting facts about quilting blend into this series as he Tuesday quilters group of interesting characters gather for their weekly meetings. Love Yossi Levy and the new character of Malo. Plot twists, and religious rituals are always interesting as Martha hosts Sabbath.

    A great new (to me) cozy series

    Martha Rose answers the door to find her neighbor’s foster child asking for help when she believes the woman is dead. Luckily Sonia has had a diabetic medical emergency that she survives. Rather than placing the child in a new home, Martha gets the social worker to agree to let her keep the girl until the woman can return home to care for young Poppy. While staying with Martha, Poppy builds a relationship and eventually comes to trust her and shares that her parents were murdered and she saw the man who did it. It’s up to Martha, her fiances, Crusher, and his fellow FBI agents to keep Sonia and Poppy safe and alive as the murdered is looking to eliminate the final witness to his crime. This is the first book in the series that this shiksa has read and I enjoyed it. I found Martha to be smart and a fierce champion for those she cares most about and the rest of the characters are a great mix that any of us can find in our own lives. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.

    A wonderful addition to this popular series

    Knot on Her Life by Mary Marks is the seventh A Quilting Mystery. It can be read as a standalone. This is a endearing sweet series that I adore returning to with each new release. Martha Rose is a savvy smart, woman who is a devoted friend and has a recently become engaged to a agent for the ATF. I love Martha as a protagonist as she has fibromyalgia. and so do I. I appreciate that the author is writing about this disease bringing awareness . This story has many layers to the plot. Her daughter is expecting her first grandchild and she is busy quilting away for the new baby with her quilting group friend.s. A foster child that is a neighbor enlist her help when her foster Mother is suddenly mysteriously ill. Martha is determined to protect the child and find out what happened. Now her quilting is on hold once again for sleuthing as she try's to track down clues to the woman's illness and find out if she was poisoned on purpose as well as care for this young child and keep her safe. Soon suspects abound and Martha is knee deep in clues. The writing is fast paced, the charcters all likable and well written to the story. I always enjoy returning to their world and love the quilting information. This is a endearing sweet addition to this popular series and I look forward to the next in series. Thank you to the publisher for the ARC. My opinion is my own. Very well done and I highly recommend this book !

    Seventh A Quilting Mystery!

    Knot on Her Life by Mary Marks is the seventh A Quilting Mystery. It can be read as a standalone if you have not had the opportunity to read the rest of the novels in the series. Martha Rose is a smart, perceptive woman with a big heart who loves to quilt. Martha is divorced, engaged to ATF agent Yossi “Crusher” Levy, and suffers from fibromyalgia. The author accurately portrays what it is like to suffer from this painful and debilitating disease. Martha’s daughter, Quincy is expecting her first child which Martha is eager to spoil. There are a variety of quirky characters like Jazz, Sonia, and Giselle. Martha’s half-sister, Giselle has no filter and her comments provides levity. Marigold Poppy Sarah Halaby aka Poppy is a sweet, precocious child who has gone through something no individual, much less an eight year old, should go through in their life. The characters are realistic, developed and round out the story. Knot on Her Life is an engrossing story with a perplexing whodunit. It is a mystery that is atypical for cozy mysteries which I liked. There are a variety of suspects, a red herring and twists that will surprise readers (I love a good twist). I found it hard to put down this book because I wanted to discover who was the reprobate that killed Poppy’s parents. I particularly enjoyed the take-down scene. It was interesting to learn more about Jewish and Muslim customs which are explained in an easy to understand manner. There was one little matter at the end that I found disappointing because I was rooting for a different resolution. I like the author’s engaging writing style with steady pacing and smooth transitions. I hope Birdie Watson, a member of Martha’s Tuesday quilting group, returns soon because I miss her. Knot on Her Life has a wholesomeness to it that is welcoming. Knot on Her Life has a plucky young lady, a menacing killer, a complex crime, a brawny protector, and one determined lady sleuth.
