New Guidepost Series Giveaway

Last week I received book one in the new Guidepost mystery series that I'm writing for. Because I received two copies, I'm going to give one away to someone who leaves a comment. I've written book four and am in the midst of book ten. Here's some information about the series.
About Patchwork Mysteries
Set in a historic village nestled in beautiful New England, every novel in this good, old-fashioned page-turning "Whodunit" series reveals the power of dreams and shows that faith in God always triumphs over anxiety and fear.
Whether she's making a log cabin quilt or delving into a real log cabin to find a clue, Sarah Hart's curiosity and faith always lead her in the right direction. Each book in the Patchwork Mysteries series will bring you an intriguing mystery, always centered around a quilt, with fascinating characters set in a place you will want to return to again and again for its rich history and beautiful landscape in all seasons. You'll come to see that the key to solving an intricate mystery or making a fine quilt is knowing how to put all the pieces together—just what Sarah Hart does best!
Books in the Series
Family Patterns

Sarah welcomes her son Jason as he moves back to Maple Hill with his wife and twin daughters. He's bought an abandoned Victorian house that once belonged to his great-grandfather, and it has a mystery all its own. Sarah and her twelve-year-old granddaughters discover an old quilt hidden in a secret room. Is this a clue that will lead Sarah to solving a 100-year-old family mystery?
Time to Share
When Sarah photographs nearby Mount Greylock for research she is doing on a wall quilt, she discovers an old root cellar. Sarah decides to investigate it and finds stolen items from recent burglaries in the area, as well as an old daguerreotype. Sarah senses that the thief could be connected to the young couple in the daguerreotype. Sarah researches the couple and uncovers an old secret that will surprise everyone in Maple Hill.
Muslin Mystery
When Sarah agrees to restore an old quilt for a wealthy recluse, she's surprised by a message that is formed when the blocks of quilt are put together. It's a cry for help, but Sarah doesn't know who wrote it or how long ago. Her client won't reveal any information about it, and a stranger warns her that she may be in danger. Will Sarah pursue this mystery or listen to the stranger for fear for her own life?
Meet the Key Characters
Sarah Hart
Sarah Hart has lived in Maple Hill all her life. After the loss of her husband five years ago, Sarah built a new life for herself by drawing upon her enduring faith in God's grace and the nurturing support of her family and friends. She still lives in the same classic old Queen Anne style house, but she now takes in boarders, and has started a thriving quilt-restoration business. Sarah has a warm and welcoming smile for everyone. As you get to know her, you'll find her natural curiosity contagious—and you'll feel as if you have been friends for years.
Jason Hart
Jason and his family have just moved from Los Angeles back to Maple Hill to be closer to his mother, Sarah. He's planning to restore the old Victorian home that once belonged to his mysterious great-grandfather.

Maggie Hart
Maggie has been married to Jason for thirteen years. She is delighted with the move to Maple Hill, where they can raise their girls in a safe community where friendships are lasting and family values abide.
Audrey & Amy Hart
Audrey and Amy are Sarah's twelve-year-old twin granddaughters. At first, both are unhappy about the move as they struggle to adjust to small town life. But Maple Hill and its mysteries will soon win them over!

Vanessa Sawyer
Vanessa runs a fabric store called the Wild Goose Chase where Sarah shops for her quilting supplies. The two have become good friends, and Vanessa often helps Sarah sort through the clues to the many mysteries she solves.
Martha Maplethorpe
Martha is Sarah's best friend. The two of them have been closer than sisters for most of their lives. Martha loves a good laugh, is in awe of Sarah's sleuthing abilities and tries to help out in any way she can.
