Quilt appraiser Keely Fairchild just wants to have a quiet little Thanksgiving dinner at home with her boyfriend, but as the guest list grows, so do the distractions from meal preparations. First she gets dragged into investigating the theft of miniature quilts that were supposed to be featured in the guild's entry in the Danger Cove Thanksgiving parade, and then she stumbles onto a bigger mystery: who killed a local quilter and what did her death have to do with a sampler quilt she'd made to depict her life's story?
Keely struggles to figure out which elements of the quilt are clues and which are red herrings, and uncovers that the dead quilter and her mechanic husband may not have been as innocent as they seemed. Did the husband kill his quilting wife, or could it have had something to do with a stalker, an angry customer, or even a best friend who might actually be a frenemy?
If Keely can't figure it out, her lifeand deathmay end up depicted in her own DEADLY THANKSGIVING SAMPLER.
