Old Maid’s Puzzle by Terri Thayer is the second book in the “Quilting” cozy mystery series. Publisher: Midnight Ink, September 2008
Thirty-year-old techie Dewey Pellicano is trying to make a go of Quilter Paradiso, the quilt shop she inherited from her mother. But she’s facing a patchwork of problems—fierce competition, an uncooperative employee (who also happens to be Dewey’s sister-in-law) and, oh yes, a dead body in the alley. Dewey pins her hopes on the store’s huge 20th anniversary sale and appearance on national television. With the help of her smolderingly hot detective boyfriend Buster Healy, can Dewey save her shop and find the killer?
Dewey Pellicano inherited a quilt shop and because of her inquisitive nature becomes involved in a murder. This time, a con man is left dead behind her store and with a big sale coming up; Dewey solves the case when it looks like patrons of her store are involved. What I like about this book is that it is very enjoyable and I learn information about quilting.
