Patchwork Peril by Lois Winston is the third mini-mystery in the “Anastasia Pollack Crafting” series. Publisher: Lois Winston, April 2014
After rescuing her elderly neighbor Rosalie’s quilts from a rainstorm, craft editor Anastasia Pollack discovers Rosalie unconscious at the bottom of her basement stairs. Rosalie’s estranged niece Jane flies east to care for her during her recovery, but Rosalie suspects her motives are less than altruistic and even accuses Jane of trying to kill her. Is Rosalie’s paranoia a result of her head injury, or is there something more to her accusations? And can Anastasia uncover the truth before it’s too late?
I love these mini-mysteries from Lois that keeps me up-to-date with the goings on in the life that is Anastasia. Anastasia is at it again and hilarity ensues in this well-crafted whodunit. I hope we continue to see more of these mini-mysteries or full –length novels.
