Time has not been kind to sleepy Dorset Falls, Connecticut, where an erstwhile resident is hoping to bring a tattered yarn shop back to life—but with a murderer on the loose, the whole town is in knots…
Josie Blair left Dorset Falls twelve years ago in hopes of making it big in New York City. But after earning an overpriced master’s degree and getting fired by a temperamental designer, she finds herself heading back to her hometown. Her great-uncle was injured in a car accident, and newly unemployed Josie is the only person available to take care of him. Uncle Eb’s wife didn’t survive the crash, so Josie is also tasked with selling the contents of her Aunt Cora’s yarn shop. But the needling ladies of the Charity Knitters Association pose a far bigger challenge than a shop full of scattered skeins…
Miss Marple Knits is one of the few businesses still open in the dreary downtown. Josie can’t imagine how it stayed open for so long, yet something about the cozy, resilient little shop appeals to her. But when one of the town’s most persnickety knitters turns up dead in a pile of cashmere yarn, Josie realizes there’s something truly twisted lurking beneath the town’s decaying façade…

My Review

I loved this book! As soon as I started reading this one, I could not put it down. The plot hooks me from the start.
Eb, uncle of Josie, just had a bad accident in which he lost his wife. He has broken a leg and can't live alone. Josie's mother is about to leave for a cruise that is not refundable. Josie is not excited to go and stay for two weeks in Conneticut with a grumpy  uncle but her mother has made many sacrifices for her that she deserves a holiday. She is accustomed to live in New York so to live in a country almost uninhabited is not easy. And she must try to sell the shop of aunt Cora. She has the bright idea to empty the warehouse of the store before selling it so she is also to manage her aunt's demanding customers. The situation becomes complicated when she finds a dead woman in the store's stock. Josie must find the culprit before returning to New York.
This is a fun and entertaining mystery that I enjoyed from beginning to end. Lots of colorful characters, a strong plot, an amazing setting and a smart and funny heroine make this book a great one! A wonderful debut for this new series, I look forward to reading the next adventure of Josie.
