Dewey Pellicano’s quilt shop has earned a spot in the annual Quilter’s Crawl, and twenty-something employee Vangie has organized a trendy Twitter promotion to boost sales at the struggling store. But when Vangie’s boyfriend dies from an overdose, it’s up to Dewey to get her young staffer off the hook for homicide.

Meanwhile, the store’s quilting teacher Pearl takes in a college-age “GrandSon,” who turns out to be a real pill. As if Dewey didn’t have enough on her plate, she’s blamed when a customer is killed during a Twitter-induced stampede. Putting together the pieces to save her skin—and her store— is a real monkey wrench in Dewey’s murderously busy shop-hop weekend.
