    If you love quilting and reading cozy mysteries, this is the book for you However, I don t quilt and although I do like the occasional cozy mystery for a change of pace and something light to read, it s not my favorite genre The writing style was a little like very bad actors reading a Grade B movie script We really didn t have a fair chance at guessing who done it because SPOILER ALERT , the murderer wasn t introduced till almost the end of the book.

    If you like character driven mysteries featuring women of a certain age, I recommend Annette Mahon s St Rose Quilting Bee series The Bee members are a cross section of women from all walks of life and of all personalities Maggie Browne gave her north Scottsdale ranch to one of her sons and his family, and now she s enjoying horseback riding, theater, her children and grandchildren, and doing volunteer work through her quilting group Maggie tends to be the most level headed and inquisitive of the group, which also contains a retired nurse, a woman who compares clues to the mysteries she s read, and the resident curmudgeon among others There may not be any physical descriptions of these women in this book, but that s really not necessary Their voices and behavior distinguish each one quite easily.Having a killer in a nursing home easing the elderly out of their lives of pain and into the hereafter is an excellent plot device and really kept me guessing, and Mahon s skill with the Scottsdale, Arizona, setting gives you a real taste of city living in the desert You also get a taste for quilting an art form I ve always greatly admired while reading An Ominous Death Bee members even get several people women and men to take a class at the Palo Verde Care Center I have to admit that my favorite part of the book was listening to all the women as they sat around the quilt frame, stitching together layers of fabric and batting and discussing each new scrap of information It s like watching an entire group of Miss Marples, only these ladies don t pack knitting needles.Annette Mahon has created a group of women that Miss Marple herself would be proud to know, and I think you ll enjoy them as much as I do.

    This is the coziest of cozies The six retired women who are the regulars of the St Rose s Quilting Bee visit one of their friends who s recuperating from an accident in a rehab center They find Candy upset about recent deaths in the home In fact, she tells them, she believes there s an Angel of Death killing patients, and she s going to be next Widowed Maggie and the others think she s hysterical, but when Candy dies, the police investigate And their focus is not on the nursing home staff, but on one of the quilters.
