It reminded me a lot of the Hallmark Mystery movies that just embrace you like a warm blanket and you can't help smiling while watching (or in this case reading).
The perfect distraction for these crazy times!
YG never shows up at the community center and no one can locate her. Mrs. Whedon steps in for her with a demonstration to appease all the people waiting to see YG. Later, Ainsley returns to the shop to take care of cash receipts and closing up and George finds a very dead YG. The next day a new and inexperienced deputy arrests Mrs. Whedon from church, causing quite a stir. Ainsley’s brother Greg is the sheriff and he releases her and reclassifies her as a person of interest.
So many fans of YG arrive in Sweet River to pay their respects to YG and create a memorial to her. While there, they shop and buy out the people’s booths in the store. Ainsley’s booth owners have set up a book for the visitors to sign and pay their respects. At the end of the day, Ainsley is closing up and notices someone has written a threat in the memorial book - You’re next. She texts a picture to her brother who rushes over. It is determined that the book has cyanide poison on it. Greg calls in the EMTs and Forensics to check out the scene and Ainsley herself. A vial of the cyanide is located by Ainsley’s car so the thought is she’s Now being targeted.
As in the first book, Ainsley, the townspeople and a couple of her students start discussing the clues. YG had a son and daughter and her best friend who worked with her. Each starts to look guilty. Greg has his best friend Jake stay with Ainsley to protect her.
This was a lot of fun to try and guess who was the killer. The book was well written and enjoyable to read. It was good to see the same core of characters again. I enjoyed seeing Jake and Ansley start talking about how they like each other. I give it 5 stars.
Mrs. Whedon is implicated in the death of Yarn Goddess. Having been involved in a public confrontation with the deceased swayed the police in that direction. Ainsley knows Mrs. Whedon is innocent and something more sinister is afoot. In order to protect and exonerate Mrs. Whedon, Ainsley starts asking around and delving into the Yarn Goddess's family and empire. It would seem those closest to Yarn Goddess have the highest amounts of motive and opportunity. Now, Ainsley just has to convince her brother and stay a couple steps ahead of the murderer.
The mystery was set up and executed well. I enjoyed trying to figure out who did it an why. I will admit that I had a good idea who the murderer was in A Case for the Yarn Maker. Thinking I knew who did it, and ultimately being correct, did not detract from this mystery in any way. In fact, it amplified the suspense and nail-biting action of certain scenes, decisions, and the ultimate showdown.
Ainsley is a wonderful character with business know-how and impeccable customer service skills. Her brother, Greg, is the local sheriff, and he tries to keep her from interfering with the case but with his sights only set on Ainsley's friend, she knows she can't sit on the sidelines. Jake is a firefighter, friend of Greg's, and Ainsley's closest neighbor. Together, the three of them along with Ainsley's friends, make up a great cast of characters.
This books was an enjoyable, fast read that keep me engaged. I loved the setting: an artisan market, the characters were wonderful, realistic, and relatable. The world building allowed me to visualize the scenes and I felt like I was there with the characters as they lead their normal, everyday lives. I love the little hints of romance threaded through the book. There were a few hints in book 1 but the volume increased in book 2. I like the direction the author is taking Ainsley, as a business owner, small-town citizen, and in her love life. I couldn't put the book down.
I was provided a copy of this book to review. All thoughts and opinions of this book are my own.
