When Julie Ellis traded her high-stress life as an antiquities bounty hunter in the big city for the slower pace of Missouri wine country, she expected to find peace and tranquility among the beautiful rolling hills—not murder and mayhem. As the new innkeeper of the Quilt Haus Inn, Julie breathes a sigh of relief when preparations for their first quilting murder mystery weekend are finally complete. The props are set, the scripts are ready, and each guest has a role to play. But when the lights cut out, someone goes off script and a real dead body takes center stage. Every guest is a suspect in the murder and as the clues unfold, it seems they all have something to hide. Can Julie identify the killer before someone else checks out permanently? The book includes a free quilt pattern inspired by the story.
