A computer techie by trade, Dewey Pellicano would rather swallow needles than be pinned down to a life of quilting. But when her mother passes away, Dewey must exchange code for calico as the new proprietress of Quilter Paradiso.

Between learning the business and dealing with a conniving employee who is also her sister-in-law, Dewey is ready to snap. During a national quilt show, quilting celebrity Claire Armstrong offers to buy the shop. But before Dewey can accept, she finds the famous quilter lying dead on the floor—a bloody rotary cutter at her side.

When hunky homicide detective Buster Healy enters the scene, romance flourishes...until another murder takes place. Can Dewey thread together the pieces to this murderous pattern before the killer strikes again?

Wild Goose Chase is the first book in the Quilting Mystery series featuring amateur sleuth Dewey Pellicano.

display_description Dewey Pellicano would rather swallow needles than run a quilt shop. But Dewey's mom, who died suddenly just six months ago, left Quilter Paradiso to her. This last tie to her mother is spoiled by a conniving employee who's also Dewey's baby-talking sister-in-law. During a national quilt show, Dewey decides she's had enough and agrees to sell Quilter Paradiso to quilting celebrity Claire Armstrong. Her plan unravels when she finds Claire fatally slashed by a rotary cutter. This gruesome tragedy brings homicide detective and old family friend Buster Healey into Dewey's life. Their reunion turns into a hot romance -- until another murder takes place.
