In the sixth novel in the series that is “sure to hook cozy fans” (Publishers Weekly) the Black Sheep Knitters must work to solve the mystery of the disappearance of their friend—and figure out who is trying to kill her before it’s too late.
Curiosity Killed the Cat
Knitting graffiti, in Plum Harbor? Maggie Messina doubts it could ever happen in her quiet village. Until the new parking meters on Main Street are found covered with cat-faced cozies. In the dark of night, the mysterious Knit Kats have struck again! The infamous gang of stitching graffiti artists are totally harmless, and their pranks all in good fun. Or so Maggie and her friends think. Until a yarn-covered corpse is discovered a few days later—the tangles identical to Knit Kat handiwork.
These threads of evidence should be easy to follow. But the clever Knit Kats hide behind a website and secret identities. The murderer could be anyone. A familiar face in town, even a copy Kat. But when Maggie’s assistant, Phoebe, becomes the prime suspect, the knitting friends know the police have dropped a few stitches. With no time to rest on their needles, the Black Sheep set out to unmask the crafty killer. No simple task, when all Knit Kats look the same in the dark.

Boring. Too much emphasis on mundane issues like where they met and what they ate. Many things kept repeating and I felt as if I was reading in circles. I felt the overall plot was weak. Based on a renegade knitting group called Knit Kats that vandalize city property by wrapping or covering them in hand knitted works. Among these were statues and even a bus! If you knit, you know how long it would take to produce something big enough to cover a bus. How ridiculous. The killer was a bit of a surprise and it would have been a much better book if the author had focused more on the murder plot than the minute to minute activities of the Black Sheep Knitters. As with all books in the series, this one also had several editing errors such as additional words or missing words in a sentence. These errors really disrupt the flow of the read.
I have read the first 5 books in this series and have pre-ordered the 6th. If you love knitting and if you love mysteries, then you should read these books. I am so addicted and the ladies are so fun.
Loved this (sadly the last) of her Black Sheep Knitting mysteries. Pheobe is one of my favorite characters and this book features her a lot. Kept me guessing and in the end, hoping for more of this delightful series.
