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.
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.
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
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.

An easy to read who-done-it with plenty of knitting talk mixed in. A little slower moving than other books of hers I've read, but still enjoyable.Published on January 26, 2014 by A. Cupples
