Life is hectic enough for suburban single mom Jane Jeffrey this Christmas season--what with her having to survive cutthroat church bazaar politics and finish knitting the afghan from Hell at the same time. The last thing the harried homemaker needs is an unwelcome visit from old acquaintance Phyllis Wagner and her ill-mannered brat of a teenage son. And the Wagner picture becomes even more complicated when a dead body is woven into the design.

Solving a murder, however, is a lot more interesting than knitting, so Jane's determined to sew the whole thing up. But with a plethora of suspects and the appearance of a second corpse, this deadly tapestry is getting quite complex indeed. And Jane has to be very careful not to get strangled herself by the twisted threads shes attempting to unravel.

About the Author:

Jill Churchill has won the Agatha and Macavity Mystery Readers awards and was nominated for an Anthony Award for her bestselling Jane Jeffry series. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed Grace and Favor mysteries and lives in the Midwest.

From Publishers Weekly:

Suburban housewife/amateur sleuth Jane Jeffry returns in Churchill's ( Grime and Punishment ) new whodunit. Jane is barely coping with the everyday hassles of being the single mother of three when a long-lost acquaintance, Phyllis Wagner, arrives on her doorstep for a Christmas visit. Phyllis hasn't changed much in the years since Jane last saw her, but she has acquired immense wealth and a spoiled brat of a son. Within 24 hours, Phyllis is murdered, followed by her son. Suspects include Phyllis's estranged husband, a computer magnate who is discovered in a nearby hotel under a false name, p. 115 her overbearing stepson and the local celebrity--widow of rock 'n' roll legend Richie Divine, from whom Phyllis bought a house on short notice. Jane is an appealing heroine, whose frazzled but ordinary experiences, including carpools and Christmas craft bazaars, are woven into the plot, and the supporting cast is fully drawn. All the clues are there for the alert reader, and the resulting skillfulpk genre tale will attract those who find, like Jane Jeffry, that daily life provides a full complement of successes, failures and challenges.
