Now it’s up to Kelly and the gang to put down their needles and cut to the chase before the culprit is driven to kill again . . .”

my review

Another book from Berkley that was sent to me last summer.

I was actually surprised by this book big time. I thought for sure because it was about knitting that the characters would be much older. I sometimes have that problem in cozy mysteries where the characters are so much older than myself that I find I can’t relate to the book at all and then I don’t enjoy it as much.

The characters in this book were all in their young thirties, just getting engaged and having babies. And it was about knitting! How fantastic!

I ended up really liking it and wanting to read the next one

my review

Victoria Laurie is probably one of my favourite Cozy mystery authors.

This book was so amazing that I literally had to read it in one sitting. Absolutely fantastic!!!

You’d think because it was the 13th book in the series that the series would start to get boring, but I swear it just gets better and better.

When I finished this one I immediately bought the next one, even though I was on a book buying ban. It’s that good.

If you’ve ever thinking of trying out the genre of cozy mysteries I really recommend starting with this series!
