Danger lurks at every turn for Katie Greer.
Having escaped death in the past, Katie Greer has taken residence in a New Hampshire town where life appears idyllic, but is far from it. Teaching tangled doodling classes in her art studio allows Katie to reach out to people who require a semblance of peace and tranquility in their lives. If only she could maintain those two things for herself, Katie would be completely happy.
After finding the dead body of the town's infamous, and most mean spirited, gossip frozen on the bench outside her Tangled Wings Studio, Katie realizes her efforts to hide her true identity and live a normal life are for naught. As the prime suspect of ruggedly handsome Detective Jonah Kilbride, Katie searches for the killer in order to prove her own innocence. Much to her dismay, Katie's attraction for the relentless detective steadily grows, despite their continuous battles.
Past events threaten Katie at every turn, catching her unaware, and creating havoc in a life she's desperately tried to establish in the town where she'd briefly found happiness. Can she survive or will she become the next victim on the killer's list before she can reveal their identity?

Review of Tangled to Death 5 stars A complex “cozy” mystery, “Tangled to Death” presents a strong and feisty heroine who yearns only for peace and quiet (and yes, a little romance too), a little order to soothe the chaos her life had become. Settling in a quiet tourist-loving community in New England, Katie opens an art studio and teaches and practices “tangling,” a particular type of art with which this reviewer had been unacquainted. My only wish to add anything to this mystery would be illustrations of the process of “tangled” art. I called “Tangled to Death” complex because the author is very skilled in not telegraphing the denouement ahead of time, but instead allows readers to work their way to it, and then to be surprised, perhaps even astounded. The budding romance is also neatly interwoven, and is suitable for YA readers and above. Readers who like to curl up with a good mystery which will stretch their minds and at the same time soothe with empathetic characterizations are sure to enjoy “Tangled to Death.”
J.M. Griffin pens "Tangled to Death" a nice cozy mystery with plenty of twists, turns and strong characters to keep you reading. An enjoyable must read with a touch of romance and a surprise ending. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
