KNIT TO KILL
Book 1 in the Black Sheep & Company Mysteries
A continuation of the 8 book Black Sheep Knitting Mysteries
by Anne Canadeo


A relaxing girls’ getaway turns deadly for the Black Sheep Knitters when a pushy killer is on the prowl . . .
 
As their beloved Black Sheep member Lucy Binger prepares to tie the knot, the closely knit group decide they need a weekend to unwind before the big day. Suzanne Cavanaugh has just the spot—her friend Amy lives in a luxury New England community on Osprey Island, renowned for its famous cliff walk and spectacular ocean views, and she would be happy to host the knitters.
 
Shortly after their arrival, however, the idyllic setting turns into a crime scene. The body of a prominent resident of Osprey Shores is discovered on the rocky coastline below the cliffs and evidence suggests his fatal misstep was no accident.
 
The well-known victim was not so well liked, it turns out, with many enemies eager to send him into an early—and permanent—retirement. When the investigation focuses on Amy’s husband, the knitters step in to untangle the clues. 
 
But with this crafty killer on the edge, the Black Sheep must walk a fine line—and look before they leap to any deadly conclusions.

 
Anne Canadeo is the bestselling author of more than thirty books, including her popular Black Sheep Knitting Club Mystery series and the Cape Light series, written as Katherine Spencer. She lives in Northport, N.Y. with her husband, daughter, and canine office assistant. You can contact her at anne@annecanadeo.com or follow her on Facebook.

MY REVIEW


I was thrilled when I heard this series was to live on through a new publisher! KNIT TO KILL is the first book in the Black Sheep & Company Mysteries, but a continuation of the Black Sheep Knitting Mysteries, which makes this the ninth book with these characters.

It always amazes me when an author has a long running series, but can keep their stories fresh, and unpredictable. But it is something Anne Canadeo does, and does well with each new book. KNIT TO KILL is such a book.

With one of their own about to wed, the ladies of the Black Sheep Knitters go on a girls’ getaway. Hey, maybe getting out of their normal environment will keep the ladies out of trouble, and away from those pesky murders! Nah. It’s just not meant to be. Once again they find themselves in the middle of a mystery. But things aren’t at all what they seem to be. And before all is said and done, there’s another twist. One I sure didn’t see coming.

KNIT TO KILL, as with all books by author Anne Canadeo, was a fast, easy to follow read that made turning each page a joy, which made coming to the last page a real bummer. Now I have to wait for the next book! However, Canadeo did leave us with a knitting project (by way of a link), and a yummy recipe. So, we can stay busy with those until the next book is out!

    1. Hey Ginger. You don't have to be a knitter to enjoy this series. I don't do any kind of needle craft, and I love reading about the things they do.

  5. Lisa, that last part has me wondering if we have to wait for the next book. Where can I purchase this book? Thanks for ‘hooking’ us up on this book.

    1. Lisa is right -- knitting skills not required to enjoy these books -- or to write them�� I am not much of a knitter but do focus on the female friendships, which readers enjoy.

    2. The next book, PURLS AND POISON will be published 10/18. I''m just reviewing the copyedit. One of the knitting friends is accused of poisoning a co-worker and the group must discover the real killer to clear her name.

  6. I'm going have to look for the series. I love to read a cozy that deals with crafts. I think that's because I'm not very crafty but wish I was.
