Overview

Things are getting serious between Sophie Mae and Detective Ambrose. But Sophie Mae has a new love in her life—spinning. Pursuing her newfound passion is great fun . . . until her fellow co-op member, Ariel, is found strangled to death with Sophie Mae's very first skein of yarn.

Young and pretty, Ariel used her feminine charms and sexual magnetism to lure married men. Was the murder victim truly a gold digger in hot pants? Or just a troubled girl who met a bad end? With a tangled weave of suspects to wade through and Barr's ex turning up, it's all Sophie Mae can do to unravel this tightly knitted mystery—without coming undone herself!

Praise for Spin a Wicked Web, book three in the Home Crafting Mystery series:

"Cozy up for a finely crafted mystery-lots of twists and tangles, a most entertaining yarn."-Laura Childs, author of Death by Darjeeling: A Tea Shop Mystery

"A fast-paced contemporary cozy."-Monica  Ferris, author of Thai Die: A Needlecraft Mystery 

 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Crafter Sophie Mae (Lye in Wait; Heaven Preserve Us) lands in a mess when the yarn that she has spun in her spinning class ends up as the murder weapon in the strangulation death of a very unpopular woman. For libraries where crafting novels are in demand.


—Jo Ann Vicarel
Kirkus Reviews
A police officer and a manipulative artist, both dead, provide a third challenge for sleuthing soapmaker Sophie Mae Reynolds (Heaven Preserve Us, 2008, etc.). On her way home from a dinner date with boyfriend Barr Ambrose, Sophie Mae comes upon a wrecked police car and the body of Barr's fellow officer Scott Popper, whose wife Chris is a member of the Cadyville Regional Artist's Co-op, where Sophie Mae sells her soap. Was it an accident? After all, Scott was a skillful amateur stock-car racer. But when Sophie Mae discovers Ariel Skylark strangled with a skein of yarn, there's no doubt that her death is murder. The untalented painter used her sex appeal to get her way. The news that she was having an affair with Scott sends his widow to the head of the suspect list. Meanwhile, Sophie Mae's burgeoning relationship with Barr suffers a blow when his ex-wife arrives in town, intent on getting him back now that he's inherited a serious chunk of change. Sophie Mae's newly acquired spinning skills help to keep her calm as she explores the possibility that one of her co-op friends may be a killer. Interested fans can watch Sophie Mae's detecting expertise and her love life develop while absorbing all the information they could possibly want about the joys of spinning.

I have read this book twice over now (picked it up a 2nd time purely by accident) and it was a good cozy mystery....but I kept expecting more from the author and her characters. As you read, you wonder how the plot with turn and you hope to be surprised but I was still waiting for that extra little twist....one that just didn't come. So I have to say that it is a good read but the others within this series were so much better. I am looking forward to the next in the series and hope that the characters can offer up just a little more.

What a wonderful series! I hope Cricket McRae writes more ... really enjoy the "home crafting" recipes at the end. Easy to read - kept me involved thru all 4 of the series. Recommend to anyone who wants something that will make you laugh - cry - and cheer!
