Getting everything set up and organized has been quite hectic as Vangie has college classes to work around and a new boyfriend. The store's long time teacher Pearl is starting to fail a bit so she is not as much help as Dewey was hoping she would be. Dewey will work day and night with her few available employees to make sure everything is just right.
While picking up more maps for the Crawl Dewey learns of a program at the college that places young men with elderly women call "Grand Son". They help around the house, run errands, help with medications. She thinks this maybe just the thing to help Pearl get back to where she was and teaching classes again.
Just days before the Crawl a riot breaks out on campus as law enforcement tries to crack down on the drug problem at the collage and Vangie's new boyfriends dies from an overdose.
As if that's not enough, one of the Twitter promotions sets off a stampede and a customer is killed.
These events have all put a huge Monkey Wrench into Dewey's weekend plans. Now she has to untangle the clues and piece them back together to save her store and herself and her friends.
Terri packs her pages with drama, humor, a little romance and some wild characters. We were introduced to quite a group in this edition.Read more ›
What a fun ride! This was a good mystery filled with humor; suspense and non-stop action as the story took place all over San Jose. The author's words gave me the same rush of the customers as they traveled from quilt shop to quilt shop, never knowing what's going to happen next. It was fun seeing Dewey, Buster and especially Freddie and the rest of the supporting cast. I do enjoy their interactions and conversations with each other that make this an entertaining read. It's been a long time between visits with Dewey and I hope she is here to stay for more exciting adventures in this wonderfully crafted series.

A very enjoyable story that continues in each book, yet the books stand-alone. Each one is a story independent of the others but continues the lives of the characters.Published 21 months ago by jhb
