Sorting through the estate of a wealthy recluse may sound like a fascinating task, but when the skeletons in the closets turn out to be real, Martha and her quilting pals wish they’d stuck to basting and batting. . .

Martha Rose is stunned when she hears that her best friend from high school has passed away. Her shock doubles when she learns that Harriet Oliver made her the executor of her estate. But when investigators determine that Harriet was murdered, Martha recruits her fellow quilters to help find the culprit. She’s mastered the art of piecing together blocks to create intricate quilts, but piecing together her friend’s murder will prove far more challenging.

My Review:

I love cozy mysteries and Gone but Knot Forgotten did not disappoint me. It was very good and I loved the characters. Martha Rose and her two best friends Lucy and Birdie quilt together and get in trouble together. Martha is executor of her high school friends estate ~ Harriet Oliver. Even though they have not seen each other for years. Harriet died but was not found for 10 months as she had no family and just a few friends. Martha thought that the death was suspicious and her and her two friends start to investigate it. There are a number of twist and turns that kept me reading till the end!
