Review: Forget Me Knot by: Mary Marks & Giveaway

Title: Forget Me Knot
Author: Mary Marks
Publisher: Kensington Mystery
Pages: 376
Format: Paperback ARC
Source: Book Tour

Description:

Welcome to San Fernando Valley, California, where Martha Rose and her coterie of quilters are enjoying life on the good side of retirement—until murder pulls a stitch out of their plans…

Martha and her besties Lucy and Birdie are set to expand their Quilty Tuesdays by inviting newcomer Claire Terry into their group. Though at forty Claire’s a tad younger than their average age, her crafty reputation could perk up their patchwork proceedings, especially as they prepare for the fancy quilt show coming to town. But when they arrive at Claire’s home and find her dead inside the front door, and her exquisite, prize-winning quilts soon missing, Martha is not one to leave a mystery unraveled. Especially if she wants to stop a killer from establishing a deadly pattern…

My Thoughts:

I love starting a new series that doesn't have too many books behind the authors belt, it's like meeting a new friend that you can form a great relationship with.  This book was no different. Martha Rose, and her two friends form a quilting circle of their own and have decided to include Claire Terry to their mix if they can all get along.

Not long into this book Clair Terry is found dead and Claire's mother makes contact with Martha Rose for helping finding the stories Claire quilted.  Of course many people seem to have motives to want to silence Claire, and Martha Rose has to sort through them all to find out the guilty party.

I loved Mary Marks ability to write this story and reminds me of Elizabeth Lynn Casey's Southern Sewing Circle.  Women are both around the same age give or take.  I definitely love the characters of Ray and Lucy they are so great together and all the quilting girls come together to help Martha Rose in anyway they can.
