A Crafter Quilts a Crime: A Handcrafted Mystery
by Holly Quinn
I loved that this was a group of sleuths, which is becoming a thing in a lot of the series that I have been reading lately. It makes it more interesting having different perspectives. And more people to get in trouble too!
~A Chick Who Reads
Holly Quinn has done it again, another page-turner of a book that leaves you wanting more and more!

The mystery is good. The suspense is well-maintained throughout the story. The story is well-written too.
~The Book Decoder
I do love the way this author tells a story. A Crafter Quilts a Crime is quite entertaining and checks all my cozy boxes. I truly can’t for the next book!
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
A Crafter Quilts a Crime by Holly Quinn is such an incredible mystery filled with family love, town pride, and revenge.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
I love Sammy and her group – she investigates together with her cousin and her sister, and their interaction and relationship make them an endearing crew and so much fun to read about.
~The Book’s the Thing
I loved the story-line -the plot was so engaging, the pacing was perfect and I was totally engrossed from the first few pages.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
Mixed in between clues are some wonderful quilting bits making for a great story that is sure to delight cozy fans. I really liked it . . .
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Author Holly Quinn has created something special with her Handcrafted Mysteries. With a good number of cozy mysteries getting “edgier” (Not a word I think of when I think of cozies), Ms. Quinn has stayed true to the roots of the genre, and I for one am thrilled.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
I like how quilts tied into the mystery. There were some interesting clues to help readers solve this whodunit . . . A Crafter Quilts a Crime has a big bonfire, wintry weather, quilt clues, a spouse gone astray, and the S.H.E. squad.
~The Avid Reader
Now I’m a quilter and also have a farm and barn, so right away my interest was piqued, and I loved the barn blocks, and the trail and a wonderful job was done to make it part of the story . . . Yes, surprises abound here, and I loved the ending, wow!!
Holly Quinn does a great job of developing the characters enough for us to understand and know them without giving away too much of what happened (like who the murderers are) before.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
I enjoyed reading this because of the setting, the characters, and because it had to do with crafting things . . . The mystery was thrilling and enjoyable right up til the end and quite surprised me!
~Gimme The Scoop Reviews
I have read all the books, and love this series. I really enjoy the craft store setting . . . The mystery was fast-paced and the clues were interesting.

Perfect for fans of Betty Hechtman and Maggie Sefton, Holly Quinn’s third Handcrafted mystery aspires to wrap you in its warmth.
Community Craft proprietor Sammy Kane must piece together a patchwork of clues when a “live” mannequin ends up stone-cold dead.
Snowcapped pines and glittery dusted sidewalks adorn tranquil Heartsford, Wisconsin, while residents cuddle beneath heirloom quilts in front of cozy wood fires. But come the next day, the below-zero temperatures won’t keep the locals away from Heartsford’s annual Fire & Ice event. To boost customer traffic at Community Craft’s one-night-only sale, Samantha “Sammy” Kane persuades a few of the craftspeople who sell their wares at the store to participate in a live mannequin window display contest.
Local quilter Wanda Wadsworth emerges as a favorite to win the contest, as she manages to not move a muscle for an unusual amount of time. Onlookers outside the window try everything to get her to crack–tapping on the glass and making funny faces–but nothing disrupts Wanda’s stillness. When the eagle-eyed spectators realize Wanda isn’t breathing, a blanket of grief and fear descends upon the wintry town.
Detective Liam Nash can’t seem to piece the clues together. Fortunately, Sammy’s cousin, Heidi, and her sister, Ellie, are on hand to reconvene their detective team, S.H.E. They set out to solve Wanda’s untimely death before the case grows as icy as a sub-zero Wisconsin winter. But they are all too aware that the killer is too close for comfort.
