The Price of Truth - Review
How do solving mysteries and restoring vintage quilts go together? Like needles and thread! Kidding aside, when Guideposts Books puts together a series, you can bet it will be uplifting, inspirational and always interesting. Sarah Hart is a vintage quilt restoration expert, and an avid quilter herself, who tends to get tangled up in one mystery after another. In "The Price of Truth", Sarah's in Boston with her daughter-in-law, Maggie, an antique dealer, for an antique auction. The Maple Hill Historical Society has asked Sarah to bid on a quilt they believe was owned by one of the town's founders. But there's something fishy going on with the quilts at this auction. Sarah has to find out if the desired quilt is even authentic, then discover why other quilts are selling for way above their value, before it goes up for bid. Meanwhile, an elusive stranger keeps having secret meetings with the auction manager and Maggie's best friend is having marital problems. Read on as Sarah uncovers the mysteries of the quilts, helps Maggie's friend rethink her divorce plans and saves an auction house's reputation.
The Price of Truth is #20 in the Patchwork Mysteries Series from Guideposts Books.
