Présentation de l'éditeur

As the leaves begin to fall in idyllic Dappled Hills, someone puts too fine a point on a local ladies’ man. Fortunately, the detective skills of quilter Beatrice Coleman are a cut above the rest....

The Village Quilters of Dappled Hills, North Carolina, are desperate to finish their quilts before an upcoming show. To help, fellow member Posy has opened the back room of her shop, the Patchwork Cottage, for everyone to use. But the ladies are less than thrilled when Phyllis Stitt and Martha Helmsley—members of their rival quilting guild, the Cut-Ups—ask to join them.

Phyllis is hoping to leave the Cut-Ups and join up with the Village Quilters now that Martha’s dating her ex-fiancé, Jason Gore. She’s not pleased when he visits the shop and even more upset when her new shears disappear. After offering to search for them, Beatrice discovers Jason with the shears buried in his unfaithful heart. Now she must sharpen her sleuthing skills to find a killer before someone else’s life is cut short.…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 the Village Quilters are busy again. 5 août 2014
Par F. Yoder - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Shear Trouble is the fourth book in the A Southern Quilting Mystery series.

The members of Village Quilters are busy getting ready for a quilt show and Posy has offered the backroom of her Patchwork Cottage for a "retreat" so that everyone will be able to finish their quilts. Two members, Marsha and Phyllis, from another quilting group have also shown up. Marsha have been at odds over Jason Gore, since he has returned to Dappled Hills and has started seeing Marsha. Jason is at best a con man and had been seeing Phyllis before he abruptly lest town seven years ago. As Phyllis goes to grab her shears, she finds that they missing. Beatrice and Phyllis going looking for them and they find them, impaled in Jason.

Beatrice's friend Meadow, whose husband is chief of police, convinces her to do a little sleuthing into who might have killed Gore. There are several people that Beatrice needs to take a look at. Marsha's free-loading son is at the top of this. Having had all four tires on her vehicle slashed, Beatrice needs to find the culprit before she becomes the next victim.

Most all the characters from the previous books are bacj once again. As usual Miss Sissy is once again quite vocal, but Beatrice is never sure whether to listen to her or ignore her. She's a fun character, as all are, but I do enjoy her.

Looking forward to the next book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Light on quilts and character development, but the plot unfolds well 23 septembre 2014
Par Violetta - Publié sur
This is the fourth book in the "Southern Quilting Mystery" series, and I thought this one showed some strengths that I hadn't found previously. The main character, Beatrice Coleman, is now a secure resident of Dappled Hills, North Carolina, having moved there after retiring from a position as a folk art expert. She seems to have more skill at quiltmaking now too, and there are more references to quilting throughout the book, which was not the case in earlier installments. The plot is fairly light, so if you like mysteries that can be read easily and quickly, this author is a good choice. Several of the other characters have at least one characteristic that stands out--for example Meadow, Beatrice's friend, exhibits the emotional side in her reactions, which is a contrast to Beatrice.

I have previously been somewhat critical of some other aspects of this series. One is that it lacks local color and description of Dappled Hills. The "Southern" character is present largely in speech: the occasional "y'all" in dialogue. Also, unlike some other readers who think Miss Sissy (the elderly quilter and neighbor of Beatrice) is funny, I am somewhat dismayed at descriptions of her as "demented" and a "cadaverous old woman." She has fewer escapes from reality in this installment, but I am still at a loss to see humor in her character.

All in all, I would recommend this continuing series not so much to quilters (since there's not a great deal about that in the book), but perhaps to pet-lovers (there are two dogs and a kitten), and to readers who want a quick, easy mystery to read. It satisfies those categories quite well.

Dappled Hills, NC is one of the most peaceful places in the U.S. A Southern Quilting Mystery, of which this is book 4, is filled with gentle loving quilters, who belong to the Village Quilters. Many of the quilters happen to be at a retreat when Beatrice stumbles on a dead man. Beside the dead man, Beatrice finds the shears that one of the quilters said she lost, stabbed right in the victim's chest. The man is identified as Jason Gore, a con-man who had left town several years ago, after his crimes came to light. He also left behind his fiance, Phyllis. who seems to have recovered from her bruised ego. Jason returns to town several years later, to try to prove that he is a changed man. But can anyone who has committed so many cons ever be able to prove his innocence? It seems as if someone didn't believe him and chose to be very certain that Jason would never hurt anyone ever again. Solving this murder takes some fast thinking from Beatrice, and the help of the rest of the quilters, and of course the much loved dogs, Noo Noo and Brutus, to put the killer behind bars.

A copy of this book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

Once again the Village Quilters are at work, this time planning a quilt show. To make sure the members have their quilts completed, a quilt retreat is held at Posy's Quilt shop. There Jason Gore, a con man, winds up dead having been stabbed with a pair of shears. And so, Beatrice and Meadow have another mystery to solve - who wanted Jason dead. What makes the plot even more complex is that one of the suspects, Frank, is found dead on the church steps the night of the quilt show. The book is an okay addition to the Southern Quilting series but is weak on both quilting ideas and the plot. Calling one night to work on quilts after hours a "retreat" is stretching it a bit. Plus, most of the book is in dialogue form, some of which isn't really necessary to the plot. The "romance" between Beatrice and Wyatt is developing nicely. The two quilting groups need to set aside their differences and join together, though this time the Cut ups weren't really a part of the book. I think my favorite character is Miss Sissy as she reminds me so much of Granny Clampett. Not a bad book but not one I would read again.
