Knit, Purl, Die by Anne Canadeo



When a woman who seems to have had it all turns up face down in her own pool, the people who know her are left in a state of shock. Gloria's death has caused a ripple in her knitting club and the devastation is all too real.

When the police decide that it's an accident but the girls close to Gloria think that there might be more to the store. They take it upon themselves to solve this crime and bring the murderer to justice.

I felt like part of the Black Sheep knitting club while reading this book. I love a good whodunnit, especially when friends won't give up even if that's the easiest thing to do. I applaud this group and can't wait to see more of them.
