Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Canadeo’s smooth fourth knitting cozy (after 2010’s A Stitch Before Dying), Maggie Messina, owner of the Black Sheep Knitting Shop in Plum Harbor, Mass., and her close-knit group of friends—Lucy Binger, Dana Haeger, and Suzanne Cavanaugh—agree to help Rebecca Bailey finish knitting Rebecca’s wedding gown. A day after Rebecca’s wedding to Jeremy Lassiter, a scientist at At-Las Technologies, the four friends are stunned to learn that Jeremy was killed in a suspicious fire at his lab. When Rebecca becomes a suspect in Jeremy’s murder, Maggie and her friends look for other possible killers, including Jeremy’s twin brother, his ex-girlfriend, and a former At-Las partner. The gossip and insights the knitters share lead to both danger and a surprising resolution with a late assist from the police. Agent: Bob Mecoy, Creative Books Services. (Mar.)

Kirkus Reviews
A knitting group takes on a wedding gown and a murder. Maggie Messina owns the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, and she and her four like-minded friends, Lucy, Dana, Suzanne and Phoebe, are no strangers to sleuthing (A Stitch Before Dying, 2010, etc.). Maggie volunteers them to help finish a knitted wedding gown when the wedding date is suddenly changed. Nora Bailey and her daughter Rebecca are desperate for help, and Maggie and her pals are pleased to pitch in. The groom is Jeremy Lassiter, a brilliant scientist who works for his family's company, in a race to get a patent on a new wonder glue. The gown is done on time, the wedding is lovely despite the animosity between Jeremy's father, his divorced wife, a former business partner and Jeremy's twin, who does not speak to his tyrannical father. The knitters are all shocked to hear that there was a fatal explosion at the lab the night before the newlyweds were leaving for their honeymoon. The police begin to suspect Rebecca. The knitters, sure she is innocent, go into sleuthing mode. There are plenty of likely suspects and motives, they just have to figure out who committed a crime. The fourth in the series provides an entertaining mystery along with knitting instructions and tasty recipes.

    Highly Recommend

    I am thoroughly enjoying this entire series, as is my daughter. It's a nice, light reading--kind of reminds me of the Nancy Drew series from when I was younger, but more modern and up to date. It's nice to have some books like these that are a lighter reading to balance out the more intense ones that are the best sellers to give you a little break now and then.

    This was slightly boring...

    ...I did not finish this book.

    The characters in this story were involved in the knitting of a wedding gown for a daughter's friend. Tragedy happens days after the wedding and that's when the friends of the knitting shop get involved in a murder mystery.

    This storyline was not enjoyable. I like a group of heroines that can solve a good mystery for one another...not some random friend of a friend. To me this just seemed like a bunch of busy body ladies with nothing better to do then stick their noses in someone else's business. The characters that were involved in the tragedy were barely in the story. It was just the ladies sitting around knitting and postulating a lot of speculation. It made the whole story ridiculous and I didn't even finish this book.

    Pass on this one....Go back and enjoy #1 and #2 in this series....they were much better !!

    All in all, the story's pretty good. I went to the links for the knitted birds and the knitted bridesmaids shrugs (the site for the shrugs didn't give the weight number, so I don't know if they're to be knitted with fingering, DK, sport weights or what), but was a bit disappointed that the book didn't include the pattern for the DRESS! Now THAT would've been interesting!
