Benni Harper is busy planning two weddings--her best friend Elvia and Grandma Dove are both getting hitched. The last thing she needs is more work. But when the local historical society asks her to catalog the contents of some old trunks, she agrees--only to find they belonged to alleged murderer Maple Sullivan! Rumor has it that back in the 1940s she murdered her new husband, ran off with his best friend--and was never heard from again... Benni knows how difficult marriage can be--especially since her husband's gorgeous ex-girlfriend is back in the picture, posing a real threat. Suddenly Benni finds herself empathizing with Maple's plight--and vows to investigate her case. But there's more to this than meets the eye--and more than a few people who'd rather let sleeping dogs lie...

I really love this mystery series featuring Benni Harper, curator at a folk arts museum and her husband, Chief Inspector Gabriel Ortiz. This is the 9th book in the series with the first title being "Fool's Puzzle". The storyline of the books is based around the name of the quilt featured in the title. If you're looking for a series where you can grow with the characters, you won't be disappointed here.
