Threads of Deceit(2015)
(A book in the Vineyard Quilt Mysteries series)
A novel by Jan Fields and Mae Fox
Former antiquities bounty hunter, Julie Ellis, accepts a position as manager of the Quilt Haus Inn in Missouri wine country, thinking it the perfect place to keep a low profile and start a new, less-dangerous career. And it is - until the ruggedly handsome Daniel Franklin walks through the front door and asks for a room. Daniel claims to be a historian overseeing the recovery operation of a famous sunken ship that he believes to be buried, of all places, in a nearby farm field. Though Julie finds his story odd at best, news of the "treasure ship" spreads like wildfire through the small town of Straussberg, and Julie and her guests are soon caught up in the melee. The discovery of a dead body at the dig site makes it clear that someone else believes in Daniel's theory too and doesn't want the ship or its secrets unearthed. When frightening things start to happen at the inn, Julie can't help but wonder if the killer hiding right under her own roof. The book includes a free quilt pattern inspired by the story.
