What happened to Amber? Loose Thread DeAnn Gault is happy her younger half-sister Molly has come home to visit Foggy Point, even after she asks Harriet Truman and the quilting group if they will make quilts as a reward for two $10,000 donors to the Carey Bates Missing and Exploited Children Center. The charity is near and dear to Molly's heart, as she herself was a kidnap victim when she was five. But Molly has another agenda─she wants Harriet to figure out what happened to her friend Amber, who was kidnapped with her but never found. After Harriet's Aunt Beth is injured in a car accident that may have been sabotage, the group wonders: Will someone go to any lengths to keep the secret of Amber's disappearance? Or has Molly's current work pursuing human traffickers made them a target?
