Perfect for fans of Betty Hechtman and Maggie Sefton, Holly Quinn's third Handcrafted mystery aspires to wrap you in its warmth.
Community Craft proprietor Sammy Kane must piece together a patchwork of clues when a "live" mannequin ends up stone-cold dead.
Snowcapped pines and glittery dusted sidewalks adorn tranquil Heartsford, Wisconsin, while residents cuddle beneath heirloom quilts in front of cozy wood fires. But come the next day, the below-zero temperatures won't keep the locals away from Heartsford's annual Fire & Ice event. To boost customer traffic at Community Craft's one-night-only sale, Samantha "Sammy" Kane persuades a few of the craftspeople who sell their wares at the store to participate in a live mannequin window display contest.
Local quilter Wanda Wadsworth emerges as a favorite to win the contest, as she manages to not move a muscle for an unusual amount of time. Onlookers outside the window try everything to get her to crack--tapping on the glass and making funny faces--but nothing disrupts Wanda's stillness. When the eagle-eyed spectators realize Wanda isn't breathing, a blanket of grief and fear descends upon the wintry town.
Detective Liam Nash can't seem to piece the clues together. Fortunately, Sammy's cousin, Heidi, and her sister, Ellie, are on hand to reconvene their detective team, S.H.E. They set out to solve Wanda's untimely death before the case grows as icy as a sub-zero Wisconsin winter. But they are all too aware that the killer is too close for comfort.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Sammy just cannot help herself in this newest installment to a great crafty cozy series. A January event is starting and to bring in shoppers she thought of the idea of having a real life window display with a contest for the one person that does the best. The idea goes better then she ever could have planned for until the second slot goes too still. Wanda never gets back up instead being taken away by paramedics after failure to revive her. This closes the craft center for the day. Well of course Sammy just has to start asking questions recruiting help when needed despite who tells her not to. Mixed in between clues are some wonderful quilting bits making for a great story that is sure to delight cozy fans. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
