Christmas is approaching, but it doesn't look like a good one for the St. Rose parishioners. First, Kathy Romelli and her son are murdered in their home. Before the Quilting Bee can recover from that devastating loss, Clare is frightened half to death by an attempted carjacking. Is it related to the thefts of items from parked cars also plaguing the area? And what about the parishioner charged with creating a Ponzi scheme? Just as the Quilting Bee members think they have discovered the culprit, their favorite suspect is found dead of an apparent suicide.
