About this ebook

In a new Yarn Retreat Mystery from national bestselling author Betty Hechtman, Casey Feldstein is determined to tie up loose ends to solve another murder . . .


“If you haven’t read this series yet, I highly recommend giving it a go. The mystery will delight you, and afterward you’ll be itching to start a knitting or crochet project of your own.” —Cozy Mystery Book Reviews


After reconnecting with some old college friends on social media, part-time dessert chef and muffin maker Casey Feldstein has gotten herself roped into hosting a knitting retreat for the group. Tangled up in worries over how they’ll judge her unconventional life and the rustic atmosphere at Vista Del Mar, she watches in dismay as the women arrive and their old personalities—and old grudges—come trickling to the surface. But Casey discovers these are the least of her problems when one of the women is found dead.


With everyone a suspect—including an old crush of Casey’s who’s mysteriously been invited to join the retreat—Casey knows she’ll have to start stitching together clues to uncover the culprit. And as long-held secrets start emerging, she begins to suspect that each of the women may have had a motive for murder. Casey wants to avoid needling her old friends with accusations, but she knows she’ll have to ask some pointed questions if she’s going to unravel the clues and catch a killer . . .


Includes a pattern for a fun, easy scarf and a mouthwatering recipe!

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, contemporary, knitting, law-enforcement A logical murder mystery populated by quirky illogical characters, most of whom are trying a bit too hard to show how successful they have become in the fourteen years since they were at college together. Take these folks, subtract the murder victim, add in some local characters and cops, finish up with a magic act,and you have a mystery as complex as a knitting pattern. A good read! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Beyond the Page via NetGalley.

I found this to be a truly wonderful book with a surprise ending I did not see coming. Not only did I enjoy the premise of inheriting a home and business but I also identified with the doing multiple things to make ends meet and not quite having it all together while you believe that your friends do. I also identified with doing something you love but not necessarily wanting to broadcast it to everyone because you're afraid of judgement. There was a bit of a love...square (?) going on which was well done. I found the interpersonal relationships to be well developed and quite funny in some instances. Overall, I loved this book and didn't care what number it was in the series. I highly recommend it. Thank you to Beyond the Page Publishing, Betty Hechtman, and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read this book and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.
