Molly Pink and her crochet group, the Tarzana Hookers, love an adventure. But when their newest member is accused of turning her wedding into happily-never-after for the groom, Molly’s chance to find the truth hangs by a thread...

When Molly is invited to a major society wedding, she expects some drama but not this much. The bride, the daughter of Molly’s friend Mason, has been planning the nuptials for ages, but at the reception, things go amiss when the groom ends up dancing with the Grim Reaper.

To make matters worse, the bride’s mother is found holding the murder weapon—and, as a reality show star, she’s happy to fuel the media frenzy. Molly agrees to open her home so Thursday, the distraught bride, can have some peace from the paparazzi. But when it’s revealed that she and her groom were on shaky ground, Thursday takes the spotlight as the prime suspect.

Now Molly and the Hookers must quickly stitch together unrelated clues and high-profile suspects—before a killer strikes again…

Delicious recipes & crochet patterns included!

I almost quit following this series after book 7 when she didn't include a crochet pattern. So happy she included patterns and recipes. I gave it a 4 star rating only because the plot development was rushed in some places which was confusing. The ending was a bit rushed as well. Overall, a nice easy read. Good book to take when travelling. I reccomend.

Molly Pink and the Tarzana Hookers are back and I am very glad they are. At a high society wedding the Grim Reaper drops in for a short visit. That's when Molly and the Hookers step in gear to get the murder solved. Book 8 in the Crochet Mystery series is a great addition. Betty always seems to leave a small piece of herself in each book. FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

This was a cute story. Not exactly what I would call a compelling mystery, but it definitely fits the bill of a cozy. The usual characters are there - including Molly Pink and her Hookers. I always enjoy their banter, and as a few of these characters are eventually suspected of committing the crime, hilarity, obviously, runs amok. While I did enjoy the book, it wasn't my favorite in this series. It moved along at a comfortable pace, and had it's moments, but something about it seemed kind of... hokey. It was almost as if there were just one too many coincidences to make the whole mystery seem plausible. Don't get me wrong, it's a Betty Hechtman story, with great characters and a wonderful setting. The mystery just didn't hook me this time around. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.

Mapleshade. The other evil cats just basically killed to give themselves power. But she had a plan within a plan. She ruined CS's life, she killed more cats than I can count, and she's just plain evil.

She made Crookedstar sacrifice every cat he ever loved. She made him promise something that seemed easy at the time. ~Poppybreeze of Ashclan
