They all want a disabled lecherous riding teacher dead.
The new year is unusually cold in Foggy Point, Washington. As a result, the new manager of the equestrian center asks Harriet Truman and her quilt group The Loose Threads to make a special type of saddle blanket designed to keep a horse’s kidneys warm while they are ridden in the cold.
As Harriet and Jenny’s foster kids board their horses there, the Threads agree. They soon find themselves getting more involved at the stable, volunteering for the equine therapy program the local homeless veterans participate in.
The quilters quickly discover that the disabled husband of the new stable manager, Simon, not only teaches young women to ride, he gropes them every chance he gets.
The local homeless veterans are invited to participate in a horse therapy program at the stable, and the quilters volunteer to help. It quickly becomes clear that one of the veterans has a past history with Simon, and it isn’t a good one.
Tension at the stables rises as Simon’s behavior continues to offend. Harriet and the Threads decide to spend more time observing riding classes, preventing Simon from having time alone with the female students. Their guard duty comes to an end almost before it begins when someone puts a more permanent end to Simon’s bad behavior.
More than one person had reason to wish him dead, but who did the deed?
When music and time collide, Vagabond, a rock band on the rise from the present, are thrown into a future where music is strictly regulated by the government. There, they meet Outcast, an underground band of determined women fighting against the censorship, and together work to find a way for the guys to get home.
Then, while they’re recording, three members of Outcast are arrested, facing “rehabilitation” to eliminate their “antisocial” views on music and creativity. Without hesitation, Vagabond signs on to help the tiny group of rebels rescue the captives, even though it could mean never seeing the people they care about again.
