Overview


Dessert chef Casey Feldstein has learned one end of a knitting needle from the other after inheriting her aunt’s yarn retreat business, but a murder threatens to unravel her latest event . . .

Casey’s running a new retreat called “From Sheep to Shawl” at a resort on the atmospheric Monterey Peninsula. Participants will learn about sheepshearing, fixing up the fleece, and spinning, and will eventually knit a lovely shawl.

Nicole Welton has been hired to teach the fleece-to-fiber portion of the retreat. She’s an expert spinner, and her small shop in Cadbury by the Sea houses a beautiful assortment of spinning wheels and drop spindles. But when the new teacher fails to show up for class and is found lying dead on the boardwalk, it leaves everyone’s nerves frayed.

Now Casey has to knit together clues faster than she can count stitches before someone else at the retreat gets dropped . . .

Includes a knitting pattern and a recipe!

    Dollycas¿s Thoughts Casey¿s retreat sounds like a lot of fun.

    Dollycas’s Thoughts

    Casey’s retreat sounds like a lot of fun. Seeing the sheep getting sheared, cleaning and combing the fleece and spinning and then knitting with wool we made ourselves would be a blast. Too bad she had to face one roadblock after another including the death of the woman that was supposed to lead the whole retreat. Casey channels her aunt and does what she would have done and handled each problem head on, even chasing down a killer.

    I really love these characters. Casey has landed on her feet pretty well and following in her aunt’s footsteps continuing the yarn retreats while challenging definitely keeps her busy. Even though her mother still thinks she needs to get a “real job”. What I really enjoyed was the friendships she continues to make. Three retreaters from the last retreat return in this story and they really step up and help Casey with this retreat. Her best friend Lucinda and her husband Tag are back too as is her ex. Dr. Sammy has moved to town and has found an unusual way to stay close to Casey.

    Betty Hechtman has spun a fine mystery too. Was it suicide or murder? If it was murder who did it? She keeps trying to get her handsome neighbor who happens to be a cop to see things her way but she leaves each meeting with him either hot and bothered or furious that he is not taking her seriously.

    If you are knitter you will want to grab your needles, if you are not you will wish you were. This is a captivating page turner and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

    Silence Of The Lamb's Wool is the second book in the A Yarn Retr

    Silence Of The Lamb's Wool is the second book in the A Yarn Retreat series.

    Casey Feldstein has held many jobs in the past, but since her aunt has left her business, she's going to put forth extra effort in continuing this one. Her aunt's business is Yarn2Go and centers around putting knitting retreats. Casey's first retreat is called Sheep To Shawl, the attendees will get to see the sheep being shorn and the fleece being processed, then spun into yarn and finally knitted into a shawl. Casey is also a pastry chef at The Blue Door restaurant and she also provides muffins to various coffee shops in Cadbury by the Sea.

    The retreat is to be held at the Vista Del Mar Hotel and Conference center. Casey has engaged Nicole, who also has a an antique store called The Bank. She has experience as a spinner and knitter and seems to have everything in hand to make the retreat a success. But Wanda Krug, who is also an expert spinner, tells Casey that Nicole is in over her head on this, but maybe, Wanda is just upset that she wasn't ask to handle the retreat. Soon Bree, Olivia and Scott arrive to help Casey put the final touches for the retreat. The next day while Bree is trying to find a signal to call home, she finds Nicole's dead body on a path of the hotel. It is determined that Nicole was poisoned and at the scene were found a carry out coffee cup and one Casey's muffins. Wanda soon comes forward an offers to take the place of Nicole. This makes Casey wonder if she might have killed Nicole. But once she starts to look into the matter, she finds out that Nicole had planned an expensive trip when she claimed that her business wasn't really doing that good. Casey also learns that the Delacorte family has some hidden family secrets. She begins to wonder if this has anything to do with Nicole death.

    Very enjoyable story with enjoyable and interesting characters.

    I will be watching for the next book in the series.

    Choosing to set a knitting retreat in the beautiful Monterey, Ca

    Choosing to set a knitting retreat in the beautiful Monterey, Ca. area was genius! Betty has given us a series full of mystery, knitting and a little bit of romance. This series is a fun, easy read, as is her Crocheting Mysteries. Although Betty gives us free recipes and knitting or crochet patterns at the end of the books, the real bonus, for me, are the characters who work their way into the hearts of readers.
