DisappointedOct 20, 2008
By Amazon Customer
I was really annoyed by the opening of this book. Why do we need sexual detail like that. For a cozy, I was really put off by that. And using the "f" word was certainly not needed. It spoiled the whole book for me. Leave sex in the harder mysteries and keep cozy's just that.

Really nice mysterySep 25, 2008
By D. Griffin
Old Maid's Puzzle: A Quilting Mystery I enjoyed this very much and am becoming a fan of Terri's. Love the character development and think all cozy readers will like this one. I am a quilter but anyone will love this as it crosses the boundries of hobbies.

Incredibly Entertaining!Nov 16, 2008
By John O. Raab
"Editor of Suspense Magazine"
While I personally never imagined I would read a book that fell under the theme of a "Quilting Mystery", Old Maid's Puzzle is exactly what the casual weekend reader ordered. This amusing mystery is set in Dewey Pellicano's inherited quilt shop and the readers instantly share her pain and frustration as she deals with the day-to-day struggle to keep her business a float and the non-stop drama of her family, friends and significant other. When a body shows up, Dewey works against the clock to discover the truth behind his death without losing more business. Incredibly entertaining!

light and entertainingOct 24, 2008
I just recently discovered Terri Thayer; this is the second book I've read. Her style is very light and moves along quickly. I must admit that I got rather frustrated with the way she dealt with her sister-in-law, so when that issue was finally resolved, I wanted to say, 'hallelujah'! I am a quilter, but it's not necessary to be one to enjoy the book. If you like this sort of thing, check out Maggie Sefton. She's a knitter who writes mysteries.

Bad start.....Jul 07, 2012
This book was a gift and I had great hopes based on having read a number of knitting-based mysteries. I was put off immediately by the author's diagram opposite page 1, calling the "Old Maid's Puzzle" block a 9 patch. You cannot divide it into 9 equal squares! It is a 12 patch! If she's not an experience quilter herself, at least she needs an editor who is.
Like other reviewers, I was put off by the immediate sex scene. I have no problem with sex scenes, but I want a story line first so that it makes sense. It seems to me to be a cheap way to hook readers. Despite a poor start, I had hoped to get "hooked" by the story, but it didn't happen.
