I always love visiting Martha Rose and the Tuesday quilting group. They are a group of quirky characters that provide humor and energy.
~The Avid Reader
Martha is a smart cookie, she is also stubborn, courageous, caring, and creative. I really identify with Martha, a 50 something, full-figured woman, who has fibromyalgia and recognizes her limitations.

. . . there was so much going on is this story. It had so many layers to it, and I loved pulling away at them. However, I have never once guessed a whodunit, whatdunit, or whydunit in any of this author’s books, so I wasn’t surprised when she stumped me again. Brava, Ms. Marks!

The ninth installment in the hit Quilting Mystery series by Mary Marks finds sleuth Martha searching for her fiancé’s ex-wife.
One loose thread threatens to unravel Martha’s wedding plans: the groom-to-be married a pregnant teen to save her from scandal thirty years ago—and the marriage was never annulled. Now Crusher’s wife Hadas is coming to LA, along with his sister Fanya. But soon after she arrives, their houseguest goes missing, with her room ransacked and a chloroform-soaked cloth left behind. Could her apparent abduction be connected to her brother’s unsolved death from a hit-and-run six months ago? Martha and her quilting cohorts must find the pattern to solve the twin mysteries and determine if Crusher is still married—or now a widower . . .
