Pet quilts are the project of the day for Harriet Truman and the Loose Threads. Local veterinarian Aiden Jalbert decides to set up an animal kennel for the local battered women’s shelter and asks the quilters to sew bedding for it.
Harriet is soon drawn into the world of domestic violence when Loose Thread Sarah Ness calls from the emergency room, where she’s landed as a result of a vicious beating by her fiancé Seth Pratt.
Sarah initially refuses to consider going to the shelter but is forced to change her mind when she wakes to find Seth dead beside her in bed. Is Harriet’s friend a killer, or did someone else want Seth dead? Will Harriet put herself in the killer’s sights if she tries to figure it out?
