Publisher's Summary

Welcome to San Fernando Valley, California, where Martha Rose and her coterie of quilters are enjoying life on the good side of retirement - until murder pulls a stitch out of their plans…

Martha and her besties Lucy and Birdie are set to expand their Quilty Tuesdays by inviting newcomer Claire Terry into their group. Though at forty Claire's a tad younger than their average age, her crafty reputation could perk up their patchwork proceedings, especially as they prepare for the fancy quilt show coming to town. But when they arrive at Claire's home and find her dead inside the front door, and her exquisite, prize-winning quilts soon missing, Martha is not one to leave a mystery unraveled. Especially if she wants to stop a killer from establishing a deadly pattern…

    Story
    "Terrible On So Many Levels"

    First the narration was childish and whiny. The female characters were supposed to be in the 55-70 year old age group but the narrator sounded like she was about 12 years old. Plus--what's going on here--is 60 the new 90?? Sixty isn't old enough to have the driving difficulties and elderly issues the story encompasses. These unlikable, catty women seemed to fit better into the mid to late 80's or even 90's age set not 55! Ridiculous.

    Story
    "Bad body image , couldn't finish"

    I was offended by the constant body shaming comments. The main character appears to be the author's idea of what size 16 women are like. (Even though the average American woman is a size 14). It seemed every few pages there was something "fat" people can't do or she was eating, always unhealthy food. The mystery wasn't interesting enough to overcome the fat shaming occurring I the book. I had to stop listening.

    The author had done some research on quilting and wilt shows. However, as this book was probably intended to appeal to quilters, a bit more should have been included. I understand not wanting to bog the reader down in details, but saying there are only pieced and appliqué quilts and inferring that all quilts are judged I'm only those two categories is quite incorrect.

    "First audiobook"

    liked it it was a cute book. You should read it. That lady is exactly what I'd expect an older lady crime solver to be.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "OK"

    Not bad overall, story was OK and an interesting idea. Could have done without the political commentary.

    Story
    "NOT A COZY MYSTERY"
    Any additional comments?

    This is not what I would consider a cozy mystery or a book I could give as a gift to anyone due to the consistent, out of place, vitriolic political commentary that was throughout the book. Additionally, I found the characters to be unlikable and at times annoying. On a positive note, I did very much like the cleaver way the victim's story was revealed but that wasn't enough to make this an enjoyable read. This was a good reminder for me to read the reviews before I purchase a book, even if the book is free.

    Story
    "Really! 55 year old heroine with the voice of a 15 year old high schooler"

    Who picks these readers? When a heroine is 55, try for sounding at least 40. Not only did this reader sound like a teenager, she also sounded like she was reading for a junior high theatrical. Had to stop listening and read the book. The narration was ruining the genuine appeal of the story and characters

    "Easily forgotten"

    Forget Me Knot is an easily forgotten book. The characters aren't interesting and the plot is boring. Dara Rosenberg's narration was awkward at best. She overdramatized the story by emphasizing words at odd times. I won't be buying the next book.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Light Listen . . . with Some Sick & Twisted People"

    I'm ordinarily a fan of quilting stories AND murder mysteries . . . this one doesn't rank with up there with most . . .the combination of sixty year old women still acting as catty as teenagers and the family of the victim's acceptance/condoning of some things which should NEVER be accepted . . . well, it left me sick . . . and the writing style still comes off as light and flirtatious. Not a great combo . . .
