The Lover's Knot by Clare O'Donohue

I am a quilter, so I am drawn to books that involve quilts or quilting. I love Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilts series and Emilie Richards' Shenandoah Album series. I have been seeing Care O'Donohue's The Lover's Knot for a while now in a quilting catalog I receive, so when I placed an order and needed a few more things to bring me up to the "free shipping" amount, I toss it in my cart. I am sooo glad I did!

The Lover's Knot is book 1 in O'Donohue's Someday Quilts Mysteries. There are 2 more and I plan to snatch them up soon!

This book combines so much of what I love... mystery, romance, and quilts!  Nell is months away from her wedding to Ryan.  Plans are moving along as they should and life is good. To top it off, she receives her wedding quilt from her Grandmother... a gorgeous Lover's Knot pattern done in elegant neutrals as she requested.  Her excitement is doused when her finance' announces that they need to postpone the wedding a while.

Shocked and confused, Nell takes off to Archer's Rest... a small town in upstate New York .. to spend some time with her grandmother.  As she reconnects with her grandmother's friends and plays a bit around Someday Quilts, her grandmother's shop, Nell starts to relax a bit. She even enjoys the attention of the local handyman. But then he turns up dead... the same day Ryan comes to talk with Nell.

Nell sets out to prove Ryan's innocence and discovers more than she bargained for along the way
