The Double Wedding Ring Book Review and Giveaway

double wedding ring

I’m back with another book review for quilters!  PLUME has introduced me to a new series with this book titled The Double Wedding Ring by Clare O’Donohue.  I am not normally drawn to mysteries because I am easily spooked.  The last time I was hooked on a mysteries series was back in my Nancy Drew phase and those used to scare me so much that I would fall asleep with my light on.  My mother would have to shut it off later because I was too scared to get out of bed and shut it off myself!

Clare O’Donohue is a crime fiction author and this is her latest book in a series called the Someday Quilts series.  The books are set in a small town called Archers Rest and focus in and around a quilt shop called Someday Quilts. As an aside, I love that for a name of a quilt shop. After all, don’t we quilters look at all fabric as a “someday quilt”?  In this book, the main character, Nell Fitzgerald, works at Someday Quilts and dates Jesse, the chief of police.  She is busily planning her grandmother’s wedding when suddenly, Jesse’s former partner is murdered in Archers Rest.  Typically, Nell helps her boyfriend solve mysteries but this one hits too close to home for him and he sees her interest in helping him as interference.  Ultimately, she does help him solve the mystery.  But meanwhile, we get to read the details of three different quilts that she is working on during this time period and her thoughts about a potential career in pattern design.

This book was a quick read.  It was enjoyable and light and not so suspenseful that I couldn’t get up and shut off my light. But it was interesting enough to make me want to keep reading!  I will definitely look for the other books in the series.

Again, I have a copy of the book to share with a US reader.  Please just leave a comment here and I will pick a winner randomly on Friday.  Good luck!

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Betsy, congratulations!
