The group is working on quilts and plastic covers made from grocery bags to help the local population of homeless people. They meet at the camp, and learn that each person has a story as they distribute their quilts. A storm is approaching, and they band together to make arrangements for no power, no phones, no roads, flooding, etc.
In the interim, Harriet's boyfriend is under assault from his sister, who continues to feel entitled to money that isn't hers, and is willing to go to whatever lengths necessary to get it. It puts a stress on their relationship, to say the least.
As the storm hits, and the first body is found, the book continues with preparations, everyone joining together to do what needs to be done. The next body is found, and old and new charachters continue to add to the story.
The story is fast paced, never boring, has many twists and turns that will keep the reader engaged from start to finish! Can't wait for the next in the series!
Harriet Truman and her group of Loose Threads quilters are facing a terrible storm in the Pacific Northwest in Foggy Point, Washington. They are working on flannel quilts and plastic tarps for the homeless people who live nearby and have nothing to protect them from the rain and wind that is just getting worse. The power goes out and the wind is terrific, so Harriet has her Loose Threads quilting group stay at her home because she has a fireplace and a gas stove on which to cook. They feel relatively safe there until a member of the homeless group is murdered. There are some new people who are riding out the storm at the park where the homeless camp, and they seem a bit suspicious.
In the meantime, a rockslide has occured and the police, who were attending a meeting on the other side of the slide, are trapped and cannot get back to Foggy Point. It is up to Harriet and her group of quilting friends to try and find the killer who strikes again.
This is an excellent mystery that has been well thought out, well-paced and has very likeable characters, but I found two, Lauren and Aiden, to be rude and tactless, as the author wants them to be, I'm sure. The Loose Threads women are a very giving group and do all they can to help the homeless and risk their own safety in the midst of such a bad storm. There is no cursing or sexual content in the book. For mystery lovers and quilters, I highly recommend this one!
Meanwhile...there is a monster storm hitting the Pacific Northwest. The town of Foggy Point, Washington is gearing up for floods and more. Harriet and her quilting group are trying to make homeless camp tent tarps (very clever idea,) in time to aid the homeless. They also quilted bed quilts to try and keep the inhabitants warm. As they visit the camp, Harriet and friends begin to relate in a different way to the members living there.
Suddenly the storm takes an even worse course and causes a land slide shutting off the bridge. The main portion of the Foggy Point police are taking a seminar on the other side of the bridge and are stuck when a killer hits...a homeless man is murdered at the camp.
Asking, but not asking for help, Detective Morse finds herself dependent on Harriet etc. to find out information and background of the suspects in Foggy Point.
This book cleverly made the central location at Harriet's house. This kept all the characters central and also let us readers know where each was. The ending was strong and kept me interested all the way through.
Yes, this series has definitely grown on me. I love it!
enjoyed the Arlene Sachitano mysteries. We all live not far from
the fictional location of the stories, so they seem quite realistic
to us. Her books are constantly checked out.
