This is book number 11 in the Harriet Truman/Loose Threads Mystery series.
Quilts Make a Family begin with the Loose Threads engaging in what should be a safe activity, making quilts for foster children. It is no surprise that not all foster parents are nice people. Everything escalates into trouble when a foster parent is murdered, there is a kidnapping, and a reality TV crew is running film. Harriet and the Loose Threads are kept busy!— Deon Stonehouse
It seemed like a simple project--make quilts for foster kids getting close to aging out of the system and teach them some useful skills as well. Granted, the foster parents aren't the most pleasant people, but Luke and Sincere and the others have already had tough lives and say they can handle it.
Things get complicated, though, when a reality-TV show gets permission to film the kids and track down their relatives. Foster parent Paul Holloway is murdered, and the "relatives" the TV crew introduces are more than odd. Then, when the producer's assistant is killed, too, it's clear there's some deadly going on--and the kids are the targets.
