Quilter Martha Rose must patch together the clues to solve the murder of a cult leader in the California mountains . . .
Has Martha's fellow quilter and dear friend Birdie Watson become unraveled? Birdie and her new husband have decided to join the Mystical Feather Society, a spiritist group living on a commune in the mountains of Ojai, California. Before her free-spirited friend makes a huge mistake, Martha organizes a surprise visit to check out the commune. While white-robed members conduct a seancé in a glass yurt, their leader--Royal St. Germain--is nowhere to be found . . . until, that is, Martha and her friends discover him shot in their Winnebago. Now Martha must track down the killer and debunk the cult--before it's bye bye Birdie . . .
This is eighth book in the A Quilting Mystery by Mary Marks.
This book is a little different than some cozy mysteries. Martha is trying to convince her friends Birdie and Denver to not join a cult called the Mystical Feather and leave them all their worldly goods and possessions. When they go and visit the campus where they will be living the leader who convinced them to come is found shot to death in their camper.
I have to admit that I had a little anxiety reading this book. The plot was well done and I could easily resonate with what was going on. I definitely loved all the quilting knowledge that was dropped here and there during the mystery. I loved how she quilted when she needed to think through something.
I am definitely putting this on my must read series list for sure!
If you want to read a good cozy mystery, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
