The Map Quilt

by

Lisa Lickel

Just how high a price does a family secret command?

Death in rural Wisconsin is only the beginning to new chaos in Robertsville. What do a stolen piece of revolutionary agricultural equipment, a long-buried skeleton in the yard, and an old quilt with secrets have in common?

Hart and Judy Wingate, who met in The Gold Standard, are back to solve the mystery of The Map Quilt. Hart’s new battery design could forever change the farm implement industry. But after the death of Hart’s most confrontational colleague in a fire that destroys Hart’s workshop, the battery is missing.

Throw in a guest speaker invited to Judy’s elementary classroom who insists she owns the land under Hart’s chief competitor’s corporate headquarters, and a police chief who’s making eyes at Hart’s widowed mother, it’s no wonder Hart is under a ton of pressure to make sure his adventurous pregnant wife stays safe while trying to preserve his company and his reputation.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING!

Lisa J. Lickel weaves mystery, myths, black history, and the dynamics of family and community into a great read. The thread in the story is the legend of map quilts used in the Underground Railroad to help slaves, and freedmen alike, escape their pursuers using fabric maps designed as quilts. By adding corporate intrigue and spiritual questioning to the mix, Lickel blends the fabric of daily life with pieces of history for a wonderful reading adventure. -Peggy Bennitt

What could more intriguing than a contemporary mystery/romance about buried treasure that’s also filled with history? The Map Quilt by Lisa J. Lickel is a fun and satisfying read for the grownups that still long for an involving mystery that provides plenty of detail without overemphasizing the grittier aspects of a story involving bodies. -Elaine Marie Cooper, author of the Deer Run books.

Lisa Lickel’s The Map Quilt snags the reader with the first sentence and doesn’t let go until the last thread. As the sequel to her original Barbour cozy mystery, The Gold Standard, the tale continues with the lives of Hart and Judy Wingate. It seems that anticipation over the birth of their first child and the release of Hart’s latest “green” project for his employer, AdventiveAg, would be enough to keep the young Wisconsin couple busy. But so much more is going on. -Davalynn Spencer, author of Always Before Me

Lickel successfully weaves together history, mystery and likeable characters into a story that builds momentum and keeps me guessing until the very end. And she does it all without the gratuitous sex and violence that permeates this genre. Beyond providing a great read, this book introduced me to a great author. -Steve Miller, author of Social Media Frenzy

Play it Again by Tracy Krauss

About the book:

An unlikely duo meet in Play It Again, a story of love, life and faith. Sparks fly when an ex-rock and roll junkie and a stuffy accountant rendezvous at a local resort, but neither are prepared for the emotional entanglements, family complications, and threat from the past that unexpectedly resurfaces. Set in the 1980s, this story brings two opposing forces together in a clash of romance and danger, while its musical undertones highlight the theme that God can turn anything into beautiful music. Play It Again is the much anticipated prequel to Tracy’s debut novel And the Beat Goes On. Find out where Mark Graham’s journey began in this, the story of his parents.

What others are saying about PLAY IT AGAIN:

“This is one of the best contemporary novels I’ve read all year. . . Not only was it well-written, but it was edgy in that the story dared to be honest. . . I can see this touching a lot of people who have thought about God but have been afraid to move forward.”

–  Michelle Sutton, author of more than a dozen inspirational novels

“This book is hot property, and grabs your interest from page one.”

–   Yvonne Pat Wright, author of From Spice to Eternity
