Summary

Baseball may be America’s official favorite pastime, but for Martha Rose and her friends, quilting is far more fun… and a lot less dangerous.
A diamond brocade pattern is more quilter Martha Rose’s style than a baseball diamond - especially when it comes to the new eyesore of a stadium ruining her lovely San Fernando Valley neighborhood. Martha doesn’t know a bunt from a bundt cake, but when she stumbles upon the battered body of baseball coach Dax Martin, she doesn’t need a scorecard to know it’s foul play. LAPD homicide detective Arlo Beavers is convinced one of her neighbors is responsible. But Martha and her fellow quilters Lucy and Birdie soon discover a whole field of suspects who might have wanted to take the coach out of the game permanently.

Exercise and baseball can be a deadly combination!

Would you listen to Knot in My Backyard again? Why?

Yes. Because I like the stories and characters in the Mary Marks books.

What did you like best about this story?

The multi folds of the plot.

What does Dara Rosenberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She brings the characters alive in your mind with her narration.

Baseball is a deadly game!

Great cozy mystery!

This one was even better than the first. I just don't know why audible doesn't have the rest of the books in the series. They've been doing this a lot lately (only carrying a few books of a larger series) and it's really irritating!
