Autumn brings cooler temperatures to the Smoky Mountains. The weather may be cooling down in tiny Park County, Tennessee, but crime is heating up.

Weevil Beasley, the county's loan shark, dies and the body count begins. Sheriff Tony Abernathy is soon up to the top of his bald head in murder and mayhem. Tony's wife, Theo, is in the thick of it. Not even the members of her quilting group are immune when she leads them on a thread-filled retreat up at The Lodge. Arriving early for one of the upcoming weddings, a member of their group is murdered. While dealing with cranky quilters, distraught hotel keepers and unfinished projects, Theo has to keep track of gossip for her husband and barely has time to hand out the pattern for her new mystery quilt (pattern included). As if Tony didn t have enough to deal with in his search for answers, murder is not the only crime. Mischief abounds in Park County guerillas, bullet-riddled signs, petty theft, rotting catfish. Heavily armed crackpots are running loose in the county. More crackpots are spying on them. Even the senior citizens can't be trusted to behave. Tony's groupie, Blossom Flowers, is almost too busy with her love life to bake him a pie. Murder by Music is a contemporary small-town mystery filled with oddball characters."

    Theo is approaching her due date -- with twins! Tony is busy running around the county trying to find the murderer of a local semi-celebrity. There are several stories running at once, some of which will tie together and some of which have nothing to do with the murder but make for good stories and fit in well in a small town setting. I love Theo and Tony, their boys and the various friends and relatives that populate Park County, TN. There are complicated family trees (Blossom Flowers and her ex Theo is approaching her due date -- with twins!

I love Theo and Tony, their boys and the various friends and relatives that populate Park County, TN. There are complicated family trees (Blossom Flowers and her extended family) and like all areas some deep dark secrets that start coming out when murder is done. There is a lot of information on quilts and in this case wedding quilts. I'll continue reading this series, it is a lot of fun.

    As always, this book was not disappointing. The characters in the book have become endearing after reading the earlier books. Tony is the sheriff in this little town. His wife Theo owns her own business for quilters. His mother and her friend are two wild little old ladies that have that knack of laughter even in tense situations.

Theo is getting very close to her delivery date when he quilting group (club) heads for a weekend resort. In the wee hours of the morning, looking fro the window of her room she see's the body of the speaker in the bushes. She calls her husband and the story takes off. In every book Theo is just feisty enough that she works as the eyes and ears of this small community for the sheriff. Due to the pregnancy commentaries it was a tad different than her other novels, but still filled with that element that makes it hard to put the book down.

    Very pregnant (with twins) Theo goes off to her quilting retreat, only to find a body in the bushes. She calls husband Tony, the local sheriff, who is already involved in a number of petty crimes, not to mention so many of his deputies getting married. The body count rises, but it's hard for Tony to decide if all the deaths are connected. The quilters quilt and gossip; the deputies deal with the small town's many eccentrics, and sooner or later a fairly out of the blue solution occurs.

It's all about the journey, not the destination, in this charmer.

    I felt like there were too many characters, or that they had been developed in a previous book (I now see that this is #3 in a series.) I also felt like there were too many murders in too short a time not to be gathering national attention or having the people be more scared. It just seemed unrealistic. And people were constantly getting married - that we really didn't know - maybe they were introduced in previous books? The murderer was a complete surprise too, not that many clues were dropped I felt like there were too many characters, or that they had been developed in a previous book (I now see that this is #3 in a series.)

    Theo Abernathy is very pregnant with twins but that doesn't stop her from being involved with murder. Her husband, Tony, is sheriff of their small town. She is the owner of a quilt shop and is very busy with her quiltng group in making several wedding quilts. They are holding a quilting retreat when a guest at the lodge is found murdered. This starts a series of events that bring other murders and mayhem to the town. This is a pretty good series with interesting characters and a fair plot.

    Edge of your seat, surprises round every corner Loved the regular characters and intriguing new characters woven into unpredictable results. Loved the occasional witty tirades never spoken out loud

    Every time I pick up a book from this series, I find I just can't put it down until it's finished. This is a wonderful series full of quirky and endearing characters. The mysteries are interesting without being too predictable. And there seems to be just the right touch of humour.

    Starting in the middle of the series made it hard to understand all the characters in this book, and there are a LOT of them! The story was thin...some parts okay, but there were so many to track, I lost the importance once the real murderer was unveiled...

    I love the quirky characters. Sorry the Armenian Embroidery class was cancelled. Was looking forward to spending more time at the Lodge with Theo's quilting friends. I love the quirky characters.
