“A leisurely investigation into a murder with plenty of time for beautiful scenery, delicious food, and, of course, knitting.” —Kirkus Reviews
A relaxing girls’ getaway turns deadly for the Black Sheep Knitters when a pushy killer is on the prowl . . .
As their beloved Black Sheep member Lucy Binger prepares to tie the knot, the close-knit group decide they need a weekend to unwind before the big day. Suzanne Cavanaugh has just the spot—her friend Amy lives in a luxury New England community on Osprey Island, renowned for its famous cliff walk and spectacular ocean views, and she would be happy to host the knitters.
Shortly after their arrival, however, the idyllic setting turns into a crime scene. The body of a
prominent resident of Osprey Shores is discovered on the rocky coastline below the cliffs and evidence suggests his fatal misstep was no accident. When the investigation focuses on Amy’s husband, the knitters step in to untangle the clues. But with this crafty killer on the edge, the Black Sheep must walk a fine line—and look before they leap to any deadly conclusions.
Praise for the series:
“Friendship, knitting, murder . . . create the perfect pattern. Great fun.” —New York Times bestselling author Jayne Anne Krentz
Canadeo's fun ninth Black Sheep and Company mystery (after 2015's A Murder in Mohair) takes the ladies of the Plum Harbor, Mass., knitting group to a resort community on Osprey Island, Maine, for a weekend of relaxation before member Lucy Binger's wedding. Amy Cutler, an old friend of Black Sheep knitter Suzanne Cavanaugh, has let the group stay at her family's cottage. Their first night, the ladies have a knitting session at a local mansion, where they encounter Julian Morton, a disagreeable island resident. The next morning, Morton is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. When the police determine that Morton's fatal fall was no accident, Amy's husband becomes a leading suspect. Since, as it turns out, more than one person made threats against the dead man, the knitters, who have solved crimes before, think that a bit of sleuthing is in order. Fortunately if not surprisingly, the ladies are able to identify the killer in time to get home for Lucy's wedding.
