Baseball may be America’s official favorite pastime, but for Martha Rose and her friends, quilting is far more fun… and a lot less dangerous.
A diamond brocade pattern is more quilter Martha Rose’s style than a baseball diamond - especially when it comes to the new eyesore of a stadium ruining her lovely San Fernando Valley neighborhood. Martha doesn’t know a bunt from a bundt cake, but when she stumbles upon the battered body of baseball coach Dax Martin, she doesn’t need a scorecard to know it’s foul play. LAPD homicide detective Arlo Beavers is convinced one of her neighbors is responsible. But Martha and her fellow quilters Lucy and Birdie soon discover a whole field of suspects who might have wanted to take the coach out of the game permanently.

"What’s knot to love? Mary Marks has crafted another winner stitched together with humor and heart - Martha Rose is one gutsy lady." (Rochelle Staab, author of the Mind for Murder mysteries)
What a great book!
The story was great and kept you guessing the whole way through. I really enjoyed it!
This one was even better than the first. I just don't know why audible doesn't have the rest of the books in the series. They've been doing this a lot lately (only carrying a few books of a larger series) and it's really irritating!
A better narrator. This one is sub par for Audible.
Story is okay
Can I get my credit back?
Yes to Mary Marks. I would totally avoid any book by this narrator.
I like the character development and concise but clear scene descriptions.
Yuck! First of all, this squeaky little teenie bopper comes on trying to be the voice of a 55-year old. OK, that happens frequently no matter how much it detracts from a book. But this narrator doesn't know some basic words. Corpse of Engineers??? It wouldn't have been so bad except that the CORPS of Engineers comes up in this story a lot. I was driving while listening and wanted to smash my speakers! Totally ruined this book for me.
No. The story is all right, but the time listening to it was wasted.
Don't waste your money on the audio version. I did and now will have to buy a kindle copy.
"Exercise and baseball can be a deadly combination!"
Yes. Because I like the stories and characters in the Mary Marks books.
The multi folds of the plot.
She brings the characters alive in your mind with her narration.
Baseball is a deadly game!
Would like to see more of Mary Marks books in audio made available to us here in the UK.
