I think this is the best book yet in Clare O’Donohue’s Someday Quilts Mystery series! The Double Cross takes Nell Fitzgerald and a few of her quilting group to a Bed & Breakfast in upstate New York to teach a week-long quilting class. When they get to the Inn, they find the place in a very rundown state and the group of people signed up to take the class are not your typical quilters. The B&B owners are childhood friends of one of the ladies in Nell’s quilting group, but they have not been in contact with each other for more than 40 years.
The women are wondering if they should have come when things start to disappear and one of the B&B owners is found dead, covered with a quilt, and a gunshot wound to the heart. Naturally Nell and her group are obsessed with finding out who did it when the police are focussed on one of their own.
The Double Cross is a quilt block and the perfect name for this book. I’m not going to give too much away, but I highly recommend this book. There is one more book in this series, The Devil’s Puzzle, which came out this year. I must find this book. Happy Reading! Kathryn
