When all hell breaks loose by Tori Sinclair as told to Elizabeth Lynn Casey

Have you ever been moving along through life, feeling like everything is going great, when, all of a sudden—Bam!—all hell seems to break loose?

Yeah, I figured you probably have. . .

It’s not fun, is it?

In a matter of days (actually, let’s make that hours), I found a dead body (in the trunk of a car), fell and hit my head (on a slab of concrete), saw one of my closest friends cry like I’ve never seen her cry (gut wrenching, I tell you), had another accuse me of being a traitor (and when seen through her eyes, I get it), and have had to accept the unacceptable where yet another one is concerned (though trust me, I’m fighting it with everything I am).

If I drank, I’d be drinking right now.

But since I don’t, I guess I better figure something else out. And fast.

You can read more about Tori in Patterned After Death, the 12th book in the “Southern Sewing Circle” mystery series.

Everyone in Sweet Briar, South Carolina, knows former high school football stars Jake Davis and Noah Madden. The two were fierce rivals once and now, twenty years later, the dueling quarterbacks haven’t lost their luster. So townsfolk are surprised when Jake and Noah team up for a business venture. And there’s only one suspect when Noah turns up murdered.

Margaret Louise, Jake’s mother and one of the founding members of the sewing circle, isn’t about to take the attack on her son’s reputation lying down. In fact, she’s in full mama-bear mode. And Tori and the rest of the Sweet Briar gang are more than willing to help her sharpen her claws to catch a killer.
