Quilter Martha Rose must patch together the clues to solve the murder of a cult leader in the California mountains . . .
Has Martha’s fellow quilter and dear friend Birdie Watson become unraveled? Birdie and her new husband have decided to join the Mystical Feather Society, a spiritist group living on a commune in the mountains of Ojai, California. Before her free-spirited friend makes a huge mistake, Martha organizes a surprise visit to check out the commune. While white-robed members conduct a seancĂ© in a glass yurt, their leader—Royal St. Germain—is nowhere to be found . . . until, that is, Martha and her friends discover him shot in their Winnebago. Now Martha must track down the killer and debunk the cult—before it's bye bye Birdie . . .
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for. 

A nice twist to a fun cozy. We catch back up with Martha and her friends. Birdie is back home after spending the winter in Arizona. She is happy to be back home but quickly announced her intentions to sell everything she owns and join what is pretty much a cult. Hubby is going along with it as well. Martha was skeptical from the get go but the more she learns the worse it gets. Then they plan a surprise visit to the compound only for things to go wrong once they get their. The owner is found dead in the RV they traveled in making for an interesting investigation. What follows is a quilters dream full of clues and surprise just to keep you guessing. Makes for a well written cozy full of great characters, clues, and mystery all topped off with quilting tidbits sprinkled throughout. Made for a pleasant afternoon reading adventure perfect for fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
