The fourth in the charming knitting mystery series that is “sure to hook cozy fans” (Publishers Weekly) featuring Maggie Messina and her close circle of knitting-club friends, who must unravel another murder in their cozy coastal town of Plum Harbor, Massachusetts.
The Black Sheep Knitters new project is helping a bride-to-be knit shawls for her upcoming wedding. Days after the ceremony, the groom dies in a freak accident. As the knitters comfort the family, many secrets and betrayals—both business and romantic—are revealed. When the groom’s body turns up after the funeral in a motel room, dead again, the newlywed widow is the prime suspect, The Black Sheep must prove her innocence and find the real killer among a large circle of family, friends, and foes.
In Canadeo's smooth fourth knitting cozy (after 2010's A Stitch Before Dying), Maggie Messina, owner of the Black Sheep Knitting Shop in Plum Harbor, Mass., and her close-knit group of friends Lucy Binger, Dana Haeger, and Suzanne Cavanaugh agree to help Rebecca Bailey finish knitting Rebecca's wedding gown. A day after Rebecca's wedding to Jeremy Lassiter, a scientist at At-Las Technologies, the four friends are stunned to learn that Jeremy was killed in a suspicious fire at his lab. When Rebecca becomes a suspect in Jeremy's murder, Maggie and her friends look for other possible killers, including Jeremy's twin brother, his ex-girlfriend, and a former At-Las partner. The gossip and insights the knitters share lead to both danger and a surprising resolution with a late assist from the police.
