Wonderful series!

Quilting Calamity is the Quilting Cozy Mystery Book 2 by Kathryn Mykel. Alex Bailey’s grandmother Nona’s final request is to arrange a quilting cruise to a mysterious destination for everyone on Spruce Street. Right from the start, there are odd characters, strange happenings, and a death. Alex is also trying to figure out her Nona’s secrets, to distribute her quilts like in a quest. She is also trying to avoid getting killed! The book is great, the story is solid and the mystery has twists and turns. The characters are quirky, but likable. The narration by Stevi Incremona is wonderful. I highly recommend the series!

Murder at Sea

Quilting Calamity is Book 2 of A Quilting Cozy Mystery by Kathryn Mykel. Alex is still grieving the death of her grandma, Book 1. Alex and the whole neighborhood is gifted a cruise. But, mayhem and a side of murder is on the agenda. I thought this cozy mystery was tons of fun. I enjoyed the characters and the story was exciting. Kathryn Mykel dropped hints and clues that kept me listening and guessing who the killer was. I thought Stevi Incremona was excellent as the narrator. I also liked that Kathryn Mykel gave just enough backstory to bring listeners into book 2. I believe everyone will enjoy this cozy!

Stitching up a good mystery

I enjoyed this book. This is the second book in this series and continues from where the last book left off and because the author also names the killer from the previous book, I would recommend you read the books in order. The book contains two cleverly woven mysteries in this book/series to keep the read entertained. One that gets solved in this book (who killed Arthur) and a second one that continues in the next book (the Secrets and scheming Nona did before she died), this seems to work well for the series because it keeps you guessing. In the first book I didn't really take to the victim (Nana) but the more we get to know her and her secrets the more I change my mind about her. Once again the characters are quirky enough to be entertaining and fun. The mystery was good and with a number of twist and secrets played out nicely. I loved that most of the story took place on a cruise ship which was easy to picture as the drama unfolded. I can't wait for the next book and to see what Nona has in store for everybody next.
Alex wants to carry out her adopted grandmothers final wishes, one take everybody from Spruce on a cruise with an un named destination but all paid for by Nona and two find the mysterious Henrietta and give her the especially designed quilt. Things are off to a good start and everybody is enjoying the sewing lessons arranged by Nona. That is until the teenage boy who be friended the youngest member from the street ends up dying. Joey turns to Alex to find out happened to him. Alex is reluctant to get involved instead she wants to concentrate on the clues and keys Nona left behind and solve the Henrietta mystery but when the evidence points to the teenager being murdered, Alex can't help but get involved. Can she find his killer? And solve Nona's clues?
I liked the narrator and think she was a good choice to play the part of Alex and her friends because she put in a good performance by using different voices.
