    Great Read!!!

    In this second book of the series - Knit, Purl, Die - the personalities and idiosyncrasies of the characters introduced to us in While My Pretty One Knits have really come to life. In the quiet New England town of Snug Harbor, the death of one of the knitters - a dynamic, wealthy woman who seems to have it all - sets the town buzzing. Her much younger artist husband adds the necessary spice and sympathy to the mix. Although the police have deemed her death an accident, the knitters begin to voice their doubts. As the ladies chat and sip coffee together at Maggie's Black Sheep Knitting Shop - needles clicking away - they bounce theories off of one another, and like Miss Marple and others before her, prod the local constabulary to look deeper into the clues that they've uncovered. Maggie's knitting shop is as familiar as the one that I go to for yarn, knitting tips, and encouragement on my latest project. This comfy mystery is laced with witty dialog, as well as some surprising developments, which add suspense to the already imaginative plot. The tasty recipes and knitting patterns offered at the end of the book are just the icing on the cake.

    Readers will enjoy this cozy also filled with knitting tip and web sites and recipes

    Wealthy widow Gloria Sterling has returned from Florida to Plum Harbor, Massachusetts with her third husband much younger Jamie Barnett. The artist is considered a boy toy by Gloria's friends at the Black Sheep Knitting Shop. Soon after her return, Gloria is found dead in her swimming pool; two empty wine glasses nearby.

    The Black Sheep Knitting club members are stunned as Gloria was a colorful larger than life person. The five female knitters led by the shop's owner Maggie Messina assume Jamie killed her as the motive is money although the cops declare her death an accident. They investigate seeking clues one stitch at time.

    The second Black Sheep knitting amateur sleuth (see While My Pretty One Knits) is an enjoyable regional romp starring five intrepid knitters. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Gloria returns home with numero three and never slows down as the club members follow the threads not worrying that a killer might be watching their progress. Readers will enjoy this cozy also filled with knitting tip and web sites and recipes.
