Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours Presents: Knot My Sister's Keeper by Mary Marks

Knot My Sister’s Keeper (A Quilting Mystery)
by Mary Marks

I thought the story was well thought out and it contains a complex main character with a charming case of secondary characters.
~The Avid Reader
Delightful. This newest book in the Quilting Mystery Series is even better than the last.
~My Reading Journeys
Absolutely delightful cozy mystery that seamlessly integrates the love, history, and function of quilting with an unusual premise that sets this cozy far apart.
~Rosepoint Publishing
Knot My Sister’s Keeper is not only the best book in this series but one of the best cozy mysteries I’ve ever read.
~The Power of Words
The writing flows well and is concise. The author’s writing style is fluid and smooth and so easy to get lost in. The romantic elements of Knot My Sister’s Keeper are subtle and don’t overshadow the mystery. The entire novel is engaging; never a dull moment.

In tracing her ancestry, quilter Martha Rose discovers a ritzy half-sister, a stash of family secrets, and a decades-old mystery that only she can unravel . . .
Martha Rose is shocked to find she has a half-sister, especially one so different from her. Giselle Cole is wealthy, widowed, and lives a glamorous life in West Los Angeles. At least her grandmother was a quilter! But Giselle can’t answer Martha’s many questions about their father—he disappeared when she was only a child and the few clues left behind indicate he may have been murdered. So Martha and Giselle team up on an investigation that weaves them through the streets of L.A., their father’s hidden love affairs, and into some mysterious unfinished Cole family business . . .

 My Review

This is the first book in this series that I have read, and it won’t be the last, first I am a quilter, and second I found myself laughing out loud, this author is a great story teller.
We hit on genealogy big time here, and getting DNA in an uncouth way, stealing a cup! This story is about finding family, living with family, and getting away from family.
New relatives tracking down their missing father, and surprises and chuckles abound, a great book to unwind with and enjoy!

I received this book through Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
