This series goes up and down for me. I love some of the books and some not so much! This book had its good and bad moments. Love the intro of the cousin.

Try this mystery series featuring Benni Harper, cowgirl, quilter and museum curator. A nice, easy read, perfect for the cottage or to take away on vacation. The titles are from quilt patterns but the focus is on Benni and her husband, Gabe, the chief of police in their small California community. The first in the series is Fool's Puzzle.
