    They aren't quilting books but I have been enjoying the Murder She Wrote mysteries. I really loved the TV show and the books are not the same as the show - new stories. And they are a quick read too.

    Excellent books recommended above. I have also enjoy Debbie McComber's Cedar Cove series. This series of books start with 104 Street Name, 212 Street Name...........the first number of the address is the next in the series. These can be read out of order too.

    Looks like a lot of good reading. Where or where do I start. I have read all of Jennifer Chiaverini books so looking for something else.

    Tricia Fields has a mystery series with three books out so far. The main character is a female Police Chief in a small town on the border between Texas and Mexico. Her first book is called The Territory. Not about quilting, but she has gotten some very good reviews, and won the Tony Hillerman award for The Territory.

    Not about quilting, but just finished "The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kidd and highly recommend it.

    Thrilled to have all these suggestions!!

    We are now at daughter's house where she is on bed rest for a while. Going to take her to her doctor tomorrow and hope to have a better idea of how to proceed. Between her pregnancy complications and mom's lung cancer, I should have time to read a great deal this summer.
