Benni Harper is the curator of San Celusa's Folk Art Museum. She presently is coordinating the Memory Festival which is a celebration of recollections through crafts, quilts scrapbooks, photographs and history. A local policeman is wounded; the target of a sniper who has a vendetta against cops. Benni is concerned that Gabe, her husband, the police chief may be a target. She is also concerned that Gabe is showing signs of post-traumatic stress through nightmares about his time in Vietnam. A strange woman appears showing a great interest in Gabe, making Benni suspicious of her motives. On a lighter side Gamma Dove and her sister are trying to "help" Benni's father with his love life.

This is an enjoyable quick read with a cast of likeable human characters. There is much information about the history of Quilting, its patterns, the art of making a quilt...almost tempts the reader to try to make one! The plot is well developed with enough questions to keep the reader on his (hers) toes.

Reviewer's Note: Benni Harper series...
