latest in Arlene’s entertaining quilting mystery series is The Quilt
Before The Storm. Foggy Point is in the path of a fierce storm. Harriet
and the Loose Threads quilting group are busy making plastic tarps and sewing
flannel rag quilts for the homeless people destined to bear the brunt of the
storm. But the homeless are vulnerable to more than the wild wind and floods,
the evil among men is a greater threat. Someone has started killing people in
the homeless camp and the local police are stranded by a rock slide. Harriet
and the Loose Threads will have to catch the killer. The books are full of
quilting detail and warm, likeable characters.
A storm is bearing down on Foggy Point, Washington, promising strong winds, flooding and power outages. Harriet Truman and the Loose Threads quilt group are sewing flannel rag quilts and making plastic tarps from grocery bags for the denizens of a local homeless camp. Then one of the homeless men is strangled, and a few days later a second man is also murdered. Were they victims of a serial killer, or of someone closer to home? With the detectives of the Foggy Point Police department trapped on the wrong side of a rock slide that isolates the community, and dead bodies at the homeless camp, it's up to Harriet and the Threads to figure out who is killing people and why-before they become the next victims.
