When sixty-eight-year-old Sarah Miller moves into the Cunningham Village retirement community, she is mourning the loss of her husband, her young grandson, and the place that has been home for forty-two years. But Sarah is a survivor. As she reaches out into the retirement community that is to become home, she finds friends, activities, new hobbies, and a possible love interest. The ninth installment of this fun, friendly series of cozy mysteries draws together a tattered quilt, an exhaustive search through the past, a murder suspect, and a grand jury hearing into a compelling mystery.


My review 

I am very late to the party with these superb cozy mysteries.

Being an avid sewist and craft blogger Tattered and Torn was a real treat to read.

Sarah Miller discovers a rare quilt find in a thrift shop, she decides to try and restore it as it is a little tattered..and torn.

Soon she discovers that there is more to the history of the quilt, and what happens next is an absolute delight.

I loved following her detective work in order to discover the origins of the very special quilt.  It turns out to be quite a sad and emotive find.  With murder, a little bit of chaos and a wedding this is a fun read too.

Filled with amazing characters.. not all good and kind.. this is an easy read. The plot is simple, but fascinating and what I really loved was the history of the quilt that was in depth and really interesting.

There is a pattern project at the end, complete with template and instructions.

This is the 9th installment and I am looking forward to catching up with this fabulous series.
