The series is set in the imaginary town of Foggy Point on the Olympic Peninsula near Port Angeles. Wintertime it is hard to attract tourists, the town comes up with the idea of a sixties themed event, all peace and brotherly love in a bid to bring in visitors during the off season. Harriet and the Loose Threads quilting group put together an array of the dreadful polyester quilts, put on the sometimes embarrassing sixties fashion and sallied forth to deliver a memorable event. It is not long before someone is shot dead right under one of the quilt displays. The murder may have been random, or the killer might be after one of the Loose Threads whose secrets lead back to the sixties, secrets she closely guards. Harriet’s love life is not running smoothly either. For a man as sensitive, bright, and caring as Aiden, the local veterinarian and Harriet’s main guy, he is frustratingly clueless when it comes to the manipulations of his rotten sister who is determined to take over his life and fleece him to the bone. Aiden might want to straighten up and fly right, Tom is eager to capture the role of Harriet’s main guy. Before the book is over there will be more competition for Harriet’s attention.

It's wintertime in Foggy Point, Washington, and tourists are as scarce as gold-plated thimbles at a thrift store. The denizens of the town decide that a colorful 1960s-themed festival is just the event to bring people out and get them moving and, hopefully, spending their money in the community. Clad in bellbottom jeans, granny dresses and afro wigs, the Loose Threads quilt group is excited to participate in the associated quilt display. All, that is, except Jenny Logan, the only member who has an authentic quilt from that era. Reluctantly, she agrees to display and talk about her quilt. A costumed participant is shot in front of Jenny's quilt. Coincidence? Or is the quilt's past endangering its owner's future?
