First the narration was childish and whiny. The female characters were supposed to be in the 55-70 year old age group but the narrator sounded like she was about 12 years old. Plus--what's going on here--is 60 the new 90?? Sixty isn't old enough to have the driving difficulties and elderly issues the story encompasses. These unlikable, catty women seemed to fit better into the mid to late 80's or even 90's age set not 55! Ridiculous.

I was offended by the constant body shaming comments. The main character appears to be the author's idea of what size 16 women are like. (Even though the average American woman is a size 14). It seemed every few pages there was something "fat" people can't do or she was eating, always unhealthy food. The mystery wasn't interesting enough to overcome the fat shaming occurring I the book. I had to stop listening.
The author had done some research on quilting and wilt shows. However, as this book was probably intended to appeal to quilters, a bit more should have been included. I understand not wanting to bog the reader down in details, but saying there are only pieced and appliqué quilts and inferring that all quilts are judged I'm only those two categories is quite incorrect.
