Join our hero, Kitty, on the Island of Maui

Kitty Campbell arrives in Hawaii, as so many others have before her, expecting to relax in paradise while attending an archaeological conference.  But the luau holds much more than roast pork.  Kitty is drawn into a mystery fueled by a web of lies--and it's her expertise in prehistoric plants, plus her unique understanding of the human heart, that will help her catch the killer.

Paradise Always Has Hidden Depths

Kitty, an exceptional archaeologist and sometime lock picker, can never resist a puzzle.  After a grisly discovery, it's just that obsession that allows her to see what the authorities miss to solve a mystery that deepens faster than the night falls over the islands.  Through the story and the quilt, you'll follow along and investigate the mystery alongside her! Experience history, wild scenic beauty, and a range of memorable characters while sewing alongside a community of smart, witty, friendly and warm quilters like you!


Join us to solve crime with the nicest quilters on the Web!

Registration opens November 1, 2018 for the 2019 Murder Mystery Quilt, and closes February 12th, 2019.
