Reviews - What do customers think about Quilt as Desired: A Harriet Truman/Loose Threads Mystery?
Intriguing Mystery Apr 17, 2008
An engaging mystery, of special interest to quilters (I'm puzzled by the review from someone who refers to "arm quilting" which is really long-arm quilting, as any quilter would know), but certainly a mystery which stands on its own and has broad appeal. My 91-year old mother, who is an avid reader with an active and alert mind, loved it, and like Ms. Sachitano's other fans waits impatiently for the next book in the series.
Quilters Delight Apr 6, 2008
Quilt as Desired melds the world of quilting with the cozy mystery genre in a delightful way and is a must read for any quilter.
Every stitch counts Apr 6, 2008
Not your average mystery. The infusion of the quilting makes this mystery a step above the rest. The characters are intriguing and I couldn't put the book down. It left me wanting to know more about the residents of Foggy Point. Hope there are more!
A loose stitch... Apr 2, 2008
Reviewed by J. Edwards for ReviewYourBook.com, 1/08 Harriet Truman began her new life five years after losing her husband to a terminal illness. She returned to Foggy Point, Washington to visit her aunt Beth. Beth gave her the house and the Long-Arm Quilting Studio. Aunt Beth planned for a long extended cruise to Europe. Harriet was shocked and upset; she had not planned to stay more than a month. Her Aunt's friend, Avanell Jalbert, introduces her to all of the members of their quilting group, "Loose Threads." She also meets Aiden, Avanell's youngest son, who has just returned from Africa and plans on opening a veterinarian clinic. Harriet is responsible for getting all of the shop's quilts entered in the quilting competition. Things began to happen, the shop was burglarized, quilts were damaged, and Avanell was murdered. The plot of Quilt As Desired has great potential, unfortunately it is a stitch short. There were too many people introduced into the story line. Quilt As Desired is filled with details about arm-quilting and different quilt patterns. I like quilts but this was too much. The descriptive words were dull and choppy. Nothing flowed smoothly. I had trouble staying focused on this book. I wanted to know who committed the murder and had to restrain myself from just jumping to the end of the book. Quilt As Desired lacked some stitches...
