You know that feeling when you’re traveling to some tourist trap destination and start exploring all the rows of souvenir shops? That rush of adrenaline and the fantasy of moving to this tourist paradise.
This is the overall feeling that author Christy Fifield has evoked in this series.
Now that the tourist season is over, Glory Martine has been spending the long days helping her best friend Karen prepare for her upcoming wedding to Riley. Since the divorced duo is taking on matrimony for the second time (to each other) Karen wants it to be more special than the elopement from years ago.
As the maid of honor, Glory has ordered a special handmade quilt from one of her suppliers and on a trip to the secluded quilters home with boyfriend Jake, the couple discover that no one is home.
Later that night, Glory goes with Karen to cover a story (basically to keep her company) they end up back at the suppliers house where two bodies are found. Glory hopes that Beth and her husband Everett are not involved with the murders since they seem to be missing.
Back in town, Glory’s business neighbor Pansy Whittaker has suffered an episode and her son thinks that it’s s time to sell the coffee shop. He first goes to Glory to see if she would be interested in buying the business.
With a few days to think it over, Glory starts to drive herself crazy with not hearing from Beth, helping Karen and trying to figure out how to buy out her cousin Peter in the process.
The characters that Fifield has created for this series are truly fun and there’s never a dull moment. Even though there are a lot of characters and storylines, you never get lost in what’s happening.
I don’t think I’ve ever been able to figure out who the murderers have been throughout the series and once again, thinking that I was on the right track, Fifield pulled the rug out from under my feet.
This is a great series to get involved with and as always, be sure to have all of the installments on hand since you’ll fly through them.
