I’m delighted to be participating in author Mary Marks’ Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour for her latest release, GONE BUT KNOT FORGOTTEN.
This is the third installment in Mary’s Quilting Mystery series, but can be read on its own. The book, published by Kensington, is 288 pages and is available in mass market paperback and Kindle. To celebrate the tour, Mary’s hosting an awesome giveaway. Please see the end of the post for more details.
Here’s a brief synopsis of GONE BUT KNOT FORGOTTEN:
Sorting through the estate of a wealthy recluse may sound like a fascinating task, but when the skeletons in the closets turn out to be real, Martha and her quilting pals wish they'd stuck to basting and batting. . .
Martha Rose is stunned when she hears that her best friend from high school has passed away. Her shock doubles when she learns that Harriet Oliver made her the executor of her estate. But when investigators determine that Harriet was murdered, Martha recruits her fellow quilters to help find the culprit. She's mastered the art of piecing together blocks to create intricate quilts, but piecing together her friend's murder will prove far more challenging. . .
Includes Quilting Tips From Mary Marks!
Here are my thoughts on GONE BUT KNOT FORGOTTEN……….
What better to go with a cozy murder mystery than comfy quilting and all its paraphernalia?
Author Mary Marks blends quilting with suspense and murder in her latest release, GONE BUT KNOT FORGOTTEN, the third installment in her Quilting Mysteries series. While there are quilting tips, techniques and talk throughout the book, readers don’t have to enjoy the craft to savor the mystery.
Marks creates realistic, likable characters readers can relate to. The characters’ interaction quickly draws readers in and the suspense holds them pinned to the pages until the very end.
The close friendship element enhances the story. The author’s rich details adds depth, while her vivid descriptions places the reader among the characters.
Marks supplies all the right pieces for a intriguing cozy murder mystery in this story.
