The Black Sheep Knitting mysteries are getting stronger and more mysterious each novel. This was the best yet.

There is a wedding of a regular customer, Rebecca Bailey, and she needs the help of the Black Sheep Knitting group. The group consists of the shop's owner, Maggie and four of her best customers/friends.

Maggie known for rushing to the aid of any knitter, volunteers the group to help finish up the wedding gown (yes, the Bride is going to knit her gown,) and shrugs for the bridal party. Then...death strikes.

This becomes a murder investigation when the dead party is pronounced dead...twice!

We are taken through the wedding, funerals, industrial espionage, and obsession by the ending of this well crafted and quick reading novel.

Ms. Canadeo truly wove us a mystery as fine as any tatted lace.

I picked this for a light summer,fun read, and it met all of my expectations. If this is what your looking for pick this one. In the summertime, I don't want anything to technical, bogged down in details or literary, just fun and this fit the bill entirely. I will continue with the author for some time to come, as long as she doesn't become tedious, so far Anne hasn't.

I really like Anne Canadeo's style of writing. Easy to read but very interesting.
When I finish the Knitting Club Series I will try some of her other books.
I really hope she will continue to write the Cape Lighthouse and the Angel Island series.

The black sheep knitting group has gotten involved in yet another murder while they knit their evenings away. This is book number four about the Black Sheep Knitting Store and it's many varied knitters. By the time I have finished each one I want to try my hand at knitting again, but it is much easier to read about others doing it than trying myself. It does make the perfect setting for a cozy mystery though, and this one involves a beautifully hand knit wedding gown (who knew that was even possible) and the chemical formula for glue, of all things. You will get to watch as Maggie and the girls, visit with suspects, hear about private conversations "people-of-interest" are having and be with them while they piece together the solution that even the police are looking for.

This author write under the name Katherine Spencer with Thomas Kinkade for his series of books published once a year at Christmas and again at Easter time. She can spin a story better than most authors and will keep you guessing on this wonderful who-dun-it! I've read all five in the series and loved each and every one! You can't go wrong with anything she writes!

I enjoy reading and I enjoy knitting; crochet; and handwork of all kinds.
I was happy to get this mystery that has combined reading and knitting.
I quickly finished reading the book and can't wait for Anne Canadeo to come out with the next book. I loved the book. I don't know much about reviewing books; just know what I like. Frances Riley

This book follows the others. What an awesome story of a cohesive group of friends willing to allow others in to their group, share their knitting and their lives together with mysteries following them wherever they go.

Not all of the mysteries in this series have grabbed my attention and held it, but this one did. I thought it was excellent: an original plot that moves along nicely, an ending that is surprising, and pleasant company with solid friendships.

Ms. Canadeo's series in becoming one of the outstanding ones in the knitting and needlework genre of cozies. My other favorite writers in this genre are Maggie Sefton and Monica Ferris, both of whom are able to create more sense of place in their mysteries than Anne Canadeo does, but I enjoy all of their works.

This book deals with the tragic death of a young man who just married one of the young knitters in this circle of friends. The owner of the knit shop where some of the action takes place, Maggie Messina, is very much the leader of the group, but we get to know each of the characters quite well, and their personalities are important to the events that take place. They all help each other, share some nice meals, knit a lot, and generally use their interest in knitting to forge closer friendships.

There are recipes, knitting patterns, etc. included, and in the book there is much talk about "amigarumi" knitted animals, which are small toys or ornaments. The author gives a website for free patterns, but you can also find them by searching that term. They are very cute (either knitted or crocheted) and worth checking out while you're reading this book. I recommend it highly for anyone who enjoys a crafty cozy.
