A Knit before Dying (Tangled Web Mystery #2) by Sadie Hartwell

A Knit before Dying

A new business might add some much-needed charm to downtown Dorset Falls—and draw tourists to Josie’s yarn shop. But when someone gets murdered, a close-knit community could come undone . . .
Shop owner Josie Blair is finally settling into the pace of living in Dorset Falls, Connecticut. Between running Miss Marple’s Knits, jumpstarting a blog, and handcrafting items with the help of her knitting pals, Josie’s too preoccupied to worry about her past in New York. And thanks to Lyndon and Harry, the owners of the brand new antique shop across the street, she has another project in her midst—repurposing a box of vintage crocheted doilies adorned with the most curious needlework . . . 
But before Josie can formally welcome her neighbors, she discovers Lyndon stabbed to death by a rusty old pair of sheep shears on the floor of his shop. Police have pinned Harry as the killer, but Josie isn’t so sure. Now, she’s lacing up for another homicide investigation—and no eyelet or stitch can go unexamined, lest she herself becomes ensnared in the criminal’s deadly design . . . 

The Tangled Web Mystery series should come with a warning.... You will NOT be able put the books down.  Before you pick up a book you will need to clear your schedule for the forseeable future.  You will get lost with Josie in Dorset Falls and will not want to leave....even when you finish the book.

Sadie Hartwell is an amazing author and her talent is amazing as well  !!  When you are reading her books, you will be taken away on a journey meeting some awesome people.

Josie Blair is just getting use to living in Dorset Falls with her grouchy Uncle Eb.  She is now the proud owner of her Aunt Cora's yarn store and she is about to be a landlady for an antique store opening up next door.  That is until one of the owners is murdered.  Josie has a way with secretly figuring things out. And she always seems to ask the right questions.  

When she is cleaning a box of doiles, one of the doiles is very different and she starts to wonder about who the owner could have been and what secrets the box holds.  It will amaze you how Hartwell can take a case from years ago and work it into the present time and how she involves Josie will knock your socks off !!!

I love Dorset Falls and everything and everyone there !!  I wish it were an actual place that I could visit.  But I'll take reading about it and enjoying my time between the covers of the book....
