When Judge Deborah Knott is summoned to her ailing Aunt Rachel s bedside, she assumes the worst. Thankfully, when she arrives at the hospice center, she learns that Rachel hasn t passed; in fact, the dying woman is awake. Surrounded by her children, her extended family, and what seems like half of Colleton County, a semi-conscious Rachel breaks weeks of pained silence with snippets of stories as randomly pieced together as a well-worn patchwork quilt. But the Knott family s joy quickly gives way to shock: less than an hour later, Aunt Rachel is found dead in her bed, smothered with a pillow.Who would kill a woman on her deathbed? Was it an act of mercy or murder? As Deborah and her husband, Sheriff s Deputy Dwight Bryant, investigate they cross paths with an unlikely set of suspects: Rachel s longtime minister; her neighbor, the respected local doctor; the friendly single father who often sought her advice; and perhaps the most puzzling party of all, the Designated Daughters, a support group for caregivers that Rachel s own daughter belongs to.Soon Deborah and Dwight realize that the key to solving this case is hidden in Rachel s mysterious final words. Her mixed-up memories harbored a dark secret a secret that someone close to them is determined to bury forever."
