Stitching it together . . .
The Black Sheep Knitters: a fivesome with a knack for knitting—and for solving crimes.
hen Maggie Messina, owner of the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, is invited to give knitting workshops at a Berkshires spa resort, she manages to negotiate a cottage that fits all five of the Black Sheep for what promises to be a weekend of knitting bliss. But while the friends are expert at counting stitches, they havent counted on murder.
Guests and staff at the Crystal Lake Inn are as varied as a mixed bag of yarn, but most colorful is certainly the owner, charismatic self-help guru and former psychiatrist Dr. Max Flemming. The doctor may have told all in a revealing autobiography, but from his ex-wife to the widow of his former business partner—both employees at the inn—Max seems mired in shadows from his past. And when a killer strikes during a mountaintop retreat, the Black Sheep wonder what the good doctor might be hiding.
The police seem to be following the wrong thread. But while Maggies workshops have given the knitters a unique view of the tensions at the little inn, can they make sense of a crime that is as complexly stranded as a Fair Isle sweater? When the killer murders a second time, the Black Sheep wonder if theyve dropped a stitch and put themselves in mortal danger. . . .
Anne Canadeo lives and knits in Northport, New York. She is the author of the Black Sheep knitting mystery series, and she has also authored the popular Thomas Kinkade series writing as Katherine Spencer.
Canadeo's diverting third Black Sheep Knitting Shop (after 2009's Knit, Purl, Die) could just as well be titled Eat, Knit, Love given how much Maggie Messina and her four fellow ladies of the fiber arts enjoy their food--recipe for yummy fruit crumble included--in between knitting and crime-solving at the Berkshires' Crystal Lake Inn. When travel writer Curtis Hill, a guest at the luxury retreat, is put to permanent sleep via an intentionally faulty gas line in his cabin, clues are scarce, motives and suspects are manifold, and the local police are stumped. The apparent murder of the inn's owner, Dr. Maxwell Flemming, adds to the confusion. Meanwhile, knitter Lucy is fretting over her faltering relationship with boyfriend Matt. In Canadeo's capable hands, both story and character development roll out at a leisurely but steady pace that's sure to hook cozy fans. (Jan.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
"An engaging story full of tight knit friendship and a needling mystery."
