The St. Rose Quilting Bee is back‚ and they are on their way to Hawaii!
The St. Rose Quilters will be learning all about Hawaiian quilting while they tour the island‚ view quilts and see what inspired the designs. Unfortunately‚ on their second night‚ their hostess’s husband Sam is murdered at a luau. Right in front of everyone‚ with no one aware of it until the police arrive the next morning. Once again‚ the women use their time stitching to dissect the characters of the people involved and help the police solve the crime.
There is their gracious hostess‚ Lurline‚ and her troubled daughter Makana‚ also a quilter; and Manu‚ Lurline’s ex and Makana’s father‚ a wonderful cook and all around cheerful personality. Then there is Iris‚ the woman who arranged the trip; and Judy‚ a former St. Rose parishioner who now lives in Hilo and had a brief liaison with the dead man.
Who wanted Sam dead? There are secrets and mistaken identities, and the women will have to examine some of their old friends as well as their new ones.
