This was a cute quick cozy murder mystery I enjoyed it It s a nice break from the historical books I normally read I would read another from this author. I voluntarily read this ARC I giggled, I laughed, I snortedall in the first few pages This is the first book that I have read in this series, and it definitely won t be the last It definitely is a series that should be read in order due to spoilers, but if you read them out of order you ll still be able to follow the story The mystery was great, with some very interesting revelations, and the epilogue was absolutely wonderful. The newest member of Martha s close knit quilting circle has an eye for couture But when the designer s fingerprints are found blanketing a crime scene, Martha must prove that he didn t have a hand in homicideMartha Rose is alarmed by the discovery of Dolleen Doyle s dead body, especially when evidence suggests a fellow quilter committed the crime Set on clearing her pal, Martha searches for answers but with ties to a convicted fraudster s stolen millions and a secret office room, the victim s past raises even questions As Martha inches towards the culprit, she learns that wrapping the case up and living to baste another square will be trickier than she ever imagined Praise for Mary Marks and her Quilting Mysteries Characters are brilliantly written in entertaining situations Gone are the stereotypes of mature women expected to stay at home and knit quietly by the fireRT Book Reviews on Gone but Knot Forgotten A pleasurable and satisfying addition to any quilting mystery fan s reading list Recommend to those who cannot get enough of Terri Thayer, Elizabeth Craig, or Earlene FowlerLibrary Journal on Knot in My Backyard I really like this series and have read them all so far Martha Rose and her friends are at it again When they find out Dollen has passed away Jazz is the one they are looking at Looking into Dolly s husband they discover deceit and criminal activity in addition to the Ponzi Scheme Dolly s husband is serving time in prison for orchestrating Can they find out what is going on What about Crusher and Arlo Will she stay with Crusher A cute read.The author really knows how to write a story that will keep the reader glued to the book You will not want to put this story down until the end and what an ending it is. An outstanding cozy murder with hints of quilting and Jewish customs skillfully woven with the story Martha Rose attempts to clear Jazz, a fellow quilter of a murder charge finds a secret room, a Ponzi scheme, false testimony, greed, a fortune teller, and romance in this book Martha must act fast if she is to save Jazz from spending time in prison The ending has a cliffhanger that will shock you I highly recommend this book and series.Disclosure I received a free copy Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. Another warm fuzzy cozy from Martha Marks.Martha Rose s love life still hasn t convinced her on marriage but helping with Birdie Denver Watson s nuptials is something everyone in the Tuesday Quilting Group is excited about.When Jazz Fletcher finds himself the person of interest in the death of his client, Dolleen Shapiro, Martha Lucy and Birdie put their skills together to find the motive and the murderer Bits of interesting Jewish traditions are woven into the novel as Passover season arrives and Uncle Isaac and his friends clash.Information on quilting patterns and techniques are woven into the story and tips close out the book.Personal note I hope this is the last time indecision about marriage and life partner Don t do a Stephanie Plum or Hannah Swensen please Psychic Paulina could be left out Not my cup of tea leaves. I am tired of love triangles including the one in this series As with all triangles, the character involved needs to reflect and make a decision In this case, she should probably dump both since neither seems to fulfill what she needs Let s see a main female character who thinks about what she wants needs and decides if the male interests can provide that and cut this wishy washy crap out Why waste our time book after book with this in a mystery I liked the all the investigating that Martha and her friends but mostly Martha do and seeing how her friends lives are changing primarily Birdie s though I found the resolution of the murder was weak, but I was kept guessing So, overall not my favorite Quilting mystery, but still enjoyable 2.5 5I received my copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. A gripping and intense mystery, Martha is full of vigor, very brave, interested in the truth and helping her friends She is plagued by two strong men, one who truly loves her and one who is jealous and wants a second chance, but finding the killer and saving her friend Jazz from being arrested for a crime he didn t commit, is uppermost on her agenda, so no deep commitment like marriage until this case was solved I got an educative glimpse into the Jewish culture and a few quilting lessons, if I ever do decide to have a go at it The storyline was exceptional, it was a truly interesting book with great characters, I like Crusher over Aldo, nicely done. Knot What You Think is the fifth book in Mary Marks Quilting Mystery series This book is well plotted and has well developed characters Ms Marks witty and humorous writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read The author provided enough background information that this book can be read as a standalone There are lots of twists and turns and enough suspects to keep the reader engaged I was surprised by the final reveal I recommend it to others who enjoy cozy mysteries.Martha Rose, Lucy Mondello, Birdie Watson, and Jazz Fletcher are friends who get together once a week to quilt together and now they are helping Birdie prepare for her upcoming wedding to Denver Watson Denver is the brother of Birdie s deceased husband, Russell, who was gay and secretly engaged to Jazz Jazz has been unsuccessfully trying to deliver an order of clothes and quilted dog carriers for Dolleen Dolly Doyle s Chihuahua, who is her constant companion, and when he mentions it to Martha, she becomes concerned so the group encourages him to try again and decide to join him When they arrive, Dolly doesn t answer the door, but they can hear the dog barking The group discovers Dolly s body on the kitchen floor When Jazz becomes the prime suspect in Dolly s murder, Martha is determined to clear his name and in the process discovers deceit and criminal activity in addition to the Ponzi Scheme Dolly s husband is serving time in prison for orchestrating Martha is back with Yossi Crusher Levy but LAPD Homicide Detective, Arlo Beavers, is still vying for her attention.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
