The second book in the Quilting mysteries.
Martha Rose starts her first day of walking exercise after joining Weight Watchers, by walking around the monstrosity of the baseball stadium built just behind her house. There has been a lot bad blood over it being built on National Park Land for a local private academy.
But she doesn’t expect to stumble over the beaten dead body of its baseball coach Dax Martin!
When her neighbour is accused of the coaches murder. Martha decides that she needs to find the real murderer, and get her neighbour released.
Being a quilter, can Martha piece the clues to the murder together like she does with fabric to make a quilt? Can she solve this murder, like she did the last one?
Her beau Arlo Beavers of the LAPD is not going to be happy with her for sticking her nose in where its not wanted…again!
I love these mysteries. I like the quilting tips that are weaved into the story. Great set of characters, well plotted and written.
A diamond brocade patter is more quilter Martha Rose’s style than a baseball diamond – especially when it comes to the new eyesore of a stadium ruining her lovely San Fernando Valley neighbourhood.
Martha doesn’t know a bunt from a bundt cake, but when she stumbles upon the battered body of baseball coach Dax Martin, she doesn’t need a scorecard to know it’s foul play. LAPD homicide detective Arlo Beavers is convinced one of her neighbours is responsible. But Martha and her fellow quilters Lucy and Birdie soon discover a whole field of suspects who might have wanted to take the coach out of the game permanently.
