When living forever is a choice, making the most of today becomes a passion.

Creating a legacy isn't easy. More than magic is needed for Jean and Spence Collins to pull it off. Their baby boomer instincts tell them to get cracking; the countdown has begun for the jazz festival to celebrate the opening of Spence's vintage record store in downtown Milwaukie, Oregon. The arrival of two elderly jazz musicians changes the game.Legs Flanders and Wheezy Beevers have come to play the grand finale-and to steal the show. Only Legs can breathe life into the legendary harmonica once owned by Muddy Waters.

But the past is catching up with Jean, Spence, and FBI agent, Jon Segert. An investigation into the ancient magical fabric is opened by Jon's nemesis, Special Agent Dan Brick. The secret of immortality is on the verge of being exposed to the world. Can the harmonica protect the fabric, help Jon take down the last inside trader on his hit list, and set the course for the Collinses' future? The goals are in their grasp, but Jean and Spence must first secure Legs's and Wheezy's immortal place in music history.

The STITCHES trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion as Jean and Spence celebrate the magic of life's tune, and also the music legends that make it worth living.
