Wild Goose Chase by Terri Thayer is a murder mystery with subplots of romance. This will sound strange, but this novel is a heart-warming story. If you quilt or sew, and like a good mystery, this is a book you should pick up! I've avoided getting hooked on quilting, but I do indulge in sewing and machine embroidery. I loved reading a book that had so many references to the needle arts, the tools we use, patterns, the incredible beauty of a well constructed quilt, and a quilt show with an added bonus of a mystery to solve. Well written, interesting, and loads of fun, too.

I said, my voice wavering. I struggled to get under control. I stood, hoping being upright would stave off how vulnerable I felt. Can I go now? I’ve been here for hours. Can I go now? I’ve been here for hours oes, and my backpack. Just let me go back to work. I stopped talking as I heard my voice veer off into a pathetic whine. It dawned on me that, without the computer, my last statement wasn’t really true. I didn’t have any business in the booth. Still, I needed to get out of here.

A computer techie by trade, Dewey Pellicano would rather swallow needles than be pinned down to a life of quilting. But when her mother passes away, Dewey must exchange code for calico as the new proprietress of Quilter Paradiso.

Between learning the business and dealing with a conniving employee who is also her sister-in-law, Dewey is ready to snap. During a national quilt show, quilting celebrity Claire Armstrong offers to buy the shop. But before Dewey can accept, she finds the famous quilter lying dead on the floor―a bloody rotary cutter at her side.

When hunky homicide detective Buster Healy enters the scene, romance flourishes...until another murder takes place. Can Dewey thread together the pieces to this murderous pattern before the killer strikes again?

  • Not great literature but a fun read. Set at a conference of quilters, the author handles the setting with aplomb. I, like the protagonist, am not really a quilter but my sister is hard core and I've certainly acquired my share of fat quarters. I've also attended and organized lots of professional conferences with exhibits.

    Consider trying to explain to a cop why everyone at a conference would have, and all the vendors would be selling, extraordinarily sharp rotary cutters (one of the murder weapons). Anyone who has been in a big exhibition hall knows the feeling of hunting for the exit and coming upon a dead end. It all rings quite true. The reason for the murders and identity of the murderer are believable.

    The 1-star reviewers complained of too much sex. On the contrary, there's a bit of hot desire and relatively chaste foreplay followed by waking up the next morning. Nothing I wouldn't recommend to my elderly mother.

  • Having helped out at my grandma's craft fairs when I was a kid, I can honestly things were not quite this exciting as a quilting show with a fashion show at the end not to mention a murder of one of the participants. Just a chance to do a lot of reading in between taking care of customers and being able to look at all of the other booths. So I was excited to see this being offered as a freebie and decided to give it a chance. If I liked it enough I might buy at least the second book in the series somewhere down the road.

    In this book you have two sisters running a booth representing the quilting shop that used to belong to their mother. In fact one of them hasn't participated in the quilting show in quite some years and is just trying to decide what to do with the shop. She believes in modernizing some aspects of running the shop like the cash register and computerizing the inventory whereas the sister does not. These problems end up being small potatoes when one of the participants is found dead. Was it an accident or was it murder? An accident doesn't sound too likely as the woman would have been using a quilting knife for so long it would be both second nature to her and also make an accident highly unlikely.

    Throughout the course of the book you learn all about quilting shows and some of the events behind and in front of the scenes. You might even pick up a bit of knowledge or two about quilting and designs as well.

    There was also some romance involved in the book as well which for me was a nice surprise. All in all this was one of the books I've been really glad I went ahead and read and will possibly think of other books in the series in the future.

  • Dewey Pellicano tries to update their family business; a quilting store. It isn't easy. She has good business sense (she's a computer programmer and understands the basis of a spreadsheet), but she has little crafts skills or people skills. However, her mother has died in a car accident a few months ago and as the family splits to mourn her death, Dewey has been trying to keep the store going. This weekend of The Northern California Quilt Extravaganza is the make or break of her business. The store will either come into the 21st Century, or she's out of buiness. The decision is made when Kym crashes her computer. Hours of work are gone and it'll take hours more to input the sales from the weekend. How could her sensible brother marry her?

    It's the final straw. Clair Armstrong had made her an offer for the store and this latest disaster just proves that she's never going to follow in her mother's footsteps. She goes to Claire's room and sweeps past Myra, her personal assistant. Claire is dead from an apparent rotary cutter accident. When the police arrive, Sgt. Roy Sanchez of the San Jose Police Department isn't so sure. He thinks it's murder and his suspect is Dewey. "Buster" or Benjamin Healy is her brother's best friend. He isn't willing to risk his new promotion to detective and the homicide division on her behalf, even when he takes their relationship to the next level. Dewey is on her own to prove she's innocent.

    Wild Goose Chase by Terri Thayer is a murder mystery with subplots of romance. This will sound strange, but this novel is a heart-warming story. Dewey finds the depths of her mother's love and forms although a weak one, a bond to Kym.

    Oh yes - I can say I "figured out" who the culprit is. But I also figured out how I could be so clever - I suspected half the characters we were introduced to, so when one of them was finally revealed as a killer, I could nod my head, knowing I had pegged that person (and conveniently forgetting all the others I had suspected at one time or another!).

    There are a couple of intimate scenes between consenting adults who have known each other since childhood. But these were not over the top, nor were they written with minute detail, and should not offend anyone who has watched network TV. And don't let the quilting theme deter you if your adventures in sewing are limited to re-stitching a loose button. "Wild Goose Chase" is a clever mystery story, with interesting, relatable characters, good family angst and love, and will appeal to a wide audience. I've known my share of Kym-like characters, and the also divas of the sewing world who are either rigid perfectionists that consider tradition is the only right way to make a quilt, or the newcomers to the field who see the dollar signs floating in front of them, and want all the gimmicks and want quick results. Love 'em all!
