-Knit, Purl, Die: A Black Sheep Knitting Mystery by Anne Canadeo
Gloria Sterling had it all - money, looks, and a new sexy young husband. So when she's found floating face down in her own swimming pool, shock waves ripple through tiny Plum Harbor. At the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, Maggie Messina and her circle are devastated to lose their dear friend - a woman as colorful as her fabulous yarn creations.
The police are quick to call it an accident, but sorting out Gloria's final hours leaves too many loose ends to satisfy her friends. The vivacious, fifty something cougar had her French manicured tips in more than a few pots, and the threads of some inside deals stashed in her chic knitting tote.
Who was the last person to see Gloria alive on that quiet summer night? Two empty wine glasses suggest she wasn't home alone knitting the entire evening...The Black Sheep need to know the truth and set out to unravel - stitch by stitch - the weighty secrets that pulled poor Gloria under.
Anne Canadeo's Knit, Purl, Die, the second of the Black Sheep Knitting mystery series, is a witty, fun escape of a detective cozy. Set in the imaginary town of Plum Harbor on the North Shore of Massachusetts, Knit, Purl, Die treats us to the warm camaraderie of women in secure and set in their lives who are united in friendship, their love of knitting and sleuthing.
There is Lucy, the freelance writer. Dana is a psychiatrist married to a successful lawyer named Jack. Between the two of them, Dana and Jack are privy to many of the town's secrets and are careful not to violate privileged conversations. Suzanne is a successful real estate broker and married to a contractor who specializes in restoring old homes. Maggie, the widow and independent business owner, owns and runs the Black Sheep Knitting Shop where the women congregate.
The story is told from Lucy's point of view. Lucy has built a satisfying and independent life for herself. Lucy incorporates several miles of exercise into her day when she walks her dog into Plum Harbor's Main Street to run errands and socialize at the Black Sheep Knitting Shop. Part of the fun in Knit, Purl, Die is reading how the members of the Black Sheep live. They try to eat healthy, live well, and take care of each other. As they share meals, recipes, and knitting patterns, they build their lives together. When the women sense that their friend Gloria died under suspicious circumstances, they take it upon themselves to investigate in their own special way.
Knit, Purl, Die is a fun and light detective cozy. If you're looking for a detective cozy with strong undertones of chicklit, join the Black Sheep for this sleuthing adventure.
