Angie is finding her niche as the new owner of her late aunt's Amish quilt shop, Running Stitch. But as the summer is winding down, so is business. To bolster support for the shop, Angie decides to sell her quilts in the Rolling Brook Amish Auction, including some of her aunt's most prized works.
The quilts promise to be a hit - but the gavel comes down on the lively event when Angie stumbles upon the body of township trustee Wanda Hunt behind a canning shed. The cause of death: a poisoned blueberry fry pie from Rachel Miller's bakery table.
Now Angie's closest friend is a murder suspect. With Angie taking the lead, she and the other women of her aunt's quilting circle set out to patch together the clues and stop a killer set on shredding the simple peace of Rolling Brook.

Angie can't seem to help herself getting involved in her friends' problems. When a town council woman ends up dead with one of Angie's friends Rachel and Aaron's fry pies in her hand she has no choice but to investigate on her own to help her friends.

One of those friends, Rachel Miller, is accosted verbally by Wanda Hunt, a member of the township trustee board, about a pie factory that Rachel and her husband plan to build in town. Hurt, Rachel finally ends the conversation by giving Wanda a fry pie. Later on, Angie finds Wanda dead on the Amish Auction grounds with a fry pie in her hand. Of course, even a budding relationship with the local sheriff can't keep Angie from investigating in an effort to exonerate her Amish friends. Animal characters like "Bunnicula," Dodger, Oliver, and Petunia and their odd relationships make for some good laughs. I also loved the loyalty of Angie to her Amish friends when no one else would...
