Book Description

'With funny, amazing characters these quick reads are just the thing to settle down with.'- Tracy Shephard, Postcard Reviews

When sixty-eight year old Sarah Miller moves into the Cunningham Village retirement community, she is mourning the loss of the husband, her young grandson, and the place that has been home for forty-two years. But Sarah is a survivor. As she reaches out into the retirement community that is to become home, she finds friends, activities, new hobbies, a possible love interest, and of course, crimes to solve and murderers to track down. 

In the first installment of this fun, friendly series of cozy mysteries, one of Sarah’s new friends is murdered, and she and her feisty friend Sophie are determined to find the killer.

Postcard Reviews

Sarah Miller is approaching her 70's and her children Martha and Jason are worried about her. Her husband has died in an accident and now alone, Martha and Jason suggest she moves into a retirement village so she can be with more people.

Daydreaming about her life and watching the residents of the Cunningham Retirement Village, Sarah decides to see what's to do and make some friends.

She soon signs up for computer classes and a quilting class, deciding to make a quilt from her late husbands ties.

This cozy mystery is fun to read. Sarah reminds me of an older Agatha Raisin, and very soon when murder and mystery begin, Sarah and her new friend Sophie find themselves in the thick of the investigation.

Of course, quilting is at the main core of these fabulous novels, and what I love is the history and information given throughout the book. There is also an accompanying quilt pattern with each book. Full instructions and materials are listed, so it's very easy to catch the quilting bug and sew along with each novel.

With funny, amazing characters these quick reads are just the thing to settle down with. I read Tie Died in just a few hours and with tea cake and delicious unexpected twist it was the perfect book for me.
