Knot My Sister's Keeper by Mary Marks-Great Escape Tour Review

About the book 
In tracing her ancestry, quilter Martha Rose discovers a ritzy half-sister, a stash of family secrets, and a decades-old mystery that only she can unravel . . .
Martha Rose is shocked to find she has a half-sister, especially one so different from her. Giselle Cole is wealthy, widowed, and lives a glamorous life in West Los Angeles. At least her grandmother was a quilter! But Giselle can’t answer Martha’s many questions about their father—he disappeared when she was only a child and the few clues left behind indicate he may have been murdered. So Martha and Giselle team up on an investigation that weaves them through the streets of L.A., their father’s hidden love affairs, and into some mysterious unfinished Cole family business . . .
And I thought
Delightful.  This newest book in the Quilting Myster Series is even better than the last.  (Knot What You Think click here to read my review).
In this newest installment #6 Martha is surprised, cautious and aprehensive to find out she has a half sister.  Not only that when she meets her half sister she finds out their father disappeared just before Martha's 21st birthday.  Giselle who Martha begins calling 'G' is rich, loud at times and says what she thinks without thinking.
In the beginning Martha almost loathes her but Giselle being Giselle seems to worm her way into every ones affections.  
As the two connect and decide to investigate their fathers disappearance together they become close and end up really liking and then loving each other as sisters. 
I loved Giselle's character.  She was obnoxious at times but she is also tender hearted and lonely.  Maybe the over the top attitude hides her loneliness. 
All of Martha's friends are back with the exception of Birdie who got married at the end of What Knot To Think she is traveling with her new husband. 
Jazz of course is back along with his little dog. Jazz is hard not to like even if you don't agree with his 'lifestyle'.  I began to really like him in the last book.  He's a good friend and he is a designer providing wedding gowns for his friends when needed.  
As with the last book this one ended with a wedding.  Hmm I wonder if the previous 4 ended with nuptials?
Martha and Giselle take the reader along for the ride as they travel to Arizona, NYC, Vegas and a few other places as they look for answers and actually have a little fun too.   As they begin to find a few answers they begin to realize that their father was quite the 
womanizer when it's discovered that they have a brother also that they didn't know about.  

I really enjoyed Knot My Sister's Keeper and I hope to read the new book in the series.  I hope that Giselle and Martha become a team!  

If you enjoy cozy's this series is a great one to get into.  The author gives a lot of interesting information about the Jewish faith and weaves the art of quilting into the stories.  

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will retail sites, Net Galley and Good Reads.
