Synopsis

Autumn brings cooler temperatures to the Smoky Mountains. The weather may be cooling down in tiny Park County, Tennessee, but crime is heating up. Weevil Beasley, the county’s loan shark, dies and the body count begins. Sheriff Tony Abernathy is soon up to the top of his bald head in murder and mayhem.

Tony’s wife, Theo, is in the thick of it. Not even the members of her quilting group are immune when she leads them on a thread-filled retreat up at The Lodge. Arriving early for one of the upcoming weddings, a member of their group is murdered. While dealing with cranky quilters, distraught hotel keepers and unfinished projects, Theo has to keep track of gossip for her husband and barely has time to hand out the pattern for her new mystery quilt.

As if Tony didn’t have enough to deal with in his search for answers, murder is not the only crime. Mischief abounds in Park County—guerillas, bullet-riddled signs, petty theft, rotting catfish. Heavily armed crackpots are running loose in the county. More crackpots are spying on them. Even the senior citizens can’t be trusted to behave.

Tony’s groupie, Blossom Flowers, is almost too busy with her love life to bake him a pie.

At least, of the four new marriages, only one groom has too many mothers. A celebrity murder puts Park County on the national and international news.

Murder by Music is a contemporary small-town mystery filled with oddball characters.
