Pet quilts are the project of the day for Harriet Truman and the Loose Threads. Local veterinarian Aiden Jalbert decides to set up an animal kennel for the local battered women’s shelter and asks the quilters to sew bedding for it. Harriet is soon drawn into the world of domestic violence when Loose Thread Sarah Ness calls from the emergency room, where she’s landed as a result of a vicious beating by her fiancé Seth Pratt. Sarah initially refuses to consider going to the shelter but is forced to change her mind when she wakes to find Seth dead beside her in bed. Is Harriet’s friend a killer, or did someone else want Seth dead? Will Harriet put herself in the killer’s sights if she tries to figure it out?

Very disappointing...through almost the entire book, the author was spinning scene after scene in the wordiest way possible, to the point of boring confusion. When arriving at the end (!), I was Totally brought up short, both with her regular characters, as well as the intro to the "new" crew of ladies! What happened.....I have been reading this series since the beginning and this book has surprised me no end (pardon the pun). Having experienced similar feelings with Patricia Cornwell, I am keeping my fingers crossed that Ms. Sachitano will not disappoint in the next book. I will, however, wait a long time so as not to pay a premium price. After reading another review,where the writer expresses a tiredness with the Aiden thing...I agree, and although he is a vet and animal lover, as am I, I do not like him any more.... .
I always look forward to another book by Arlene Sachitano. I like Harriet and the Loose Threads and the mysteries they solve. It would be fun to be in a group of friends like that to quilt together and help friends. Foggy Point sounds like a nice place to live. Great series.
I have read all the books in this series. This one deals sensitively with a difficult subject and explains enough about the subject without going overboard. The books are well written and an easy read. What I like most is that although each book is an episode in the series, there are enough clues and brief explanations to allow each book to stand alone. The emphasis is very much on the characters and situations; the quilting is more the background thread which ties the characters together. If you like Debbie Macomber, you will enjoy this series. I wish a cookbook could be produced with recipes for some of the lovely Maxican food the characters regularly enjoy.
