Welcome to the small town world of Helen Crowder-and all the lies. When a localjournalist turns up dead, what's the reaction of Helen and her small-town friends? Why didn't someone kill him off before! What in the world can one man have done to make a whole community not so sorry to see him gone? And at the same time, reluctant to tell the truth about what they know? Welcome to Wallington, Georgia, home of widow Helen, and her daughter and son-in-law. He's a big city cop new to the South. Will he fit in? Life around the quilting frame just isn't going to be the same for Helen, her friends, and their (formerly) quiet way of life.
