"Gave Downing, her significant other, and her daughter, Zoey, are planning a surprise for Miranda's birthday. Now there's been a murder and no one feels like celebrating. Laura Jenkins was a bitter, nasty woman who never did anything nice for anyone. But the town is still in shock. Things like this just don't happen in Cutler, Pennsylvania! Local Police Chief Jake Perryman, overweight and out of shape, has no experience in investigating a murder. When he turns to Gave and Miranda for help, they worry the stress may be too much for him. Cutler is a small town and everyone knows everyone else. They all knew the victim and now Gave and Miranda must look at their own friends and neighbors as suspects. When a quilt is found in Laura's belongings that predates the two oldest known quilts in the state, it becomes a motive. Now to find out who had means and opportunity? Queenie McQuinn, owner of the local quilt shop, sadly tells Miranda, "There's not a quilt on this earth world dying for." But someone did!"--Page 4 of cover.
