Publisher Comments:

Thirty-year-old techie Dewey Pellicano is trying to make a go of Quilter Paradiso, the quilt shop she inherited from her mother. But she's facing a patchwork of problems--fierce competition, an uncooperative employee (who also happens to be Dewey's sister-in-law) and, oh yes, a dead body in the alley. Dewey pins her hopes on the store's huge 20th anniversary sale and appearance on national television. With the help of her smolderingly hot detective boyfriend Buster Healy, can Dewey save her shop and find the killer?

Praise for Terri Thayer's Wild Goose ChaseCutting-edge drama deftly sliced to reveal the sass beneath the surface of the quilting business. --Margaret Miller, author of AnglePlay BlocksPut down your piecework, brew yourself a cup o'Joe, fill up a snack bowl, and laze around the yard this spring with this amusing quilt-themed mystery. --Mark Lipinski's Quilter's Home Magazine

Synopsis:

After her mother's unexpected death last year, computer-techie-turned-novice-quilter Dewey Pellicano is learning to love her new inherited role as proprietress of Quilter Paradiso. But when a dead body turns up in the alley outside the store, it scares off customers and threatens to sink an already precarious bottom line. To make matters worse, Dewey's resentful QP employee (who's also her sister-in-law) is undermining her at every turn, and now a con artist is preying on her long-time customers. Steeped in debt and overshadowed by the second murder in two years, Quilter Paradiso, this last tie to Dewey's mother, is about to be cut for good. All Dewey's hopes are on the twentieth anniversary sale and upcoming landmark event - QP on national TV. With the help of her smolderingly hot detective boyfriend Buster Healy, can Dewey sew up the loose threads to this all-too-familiar deadly pattern and save her shop?
