Mystery Cozy

School psychologist Skye Denison has been waiting forever for her happily-ever-after with police chief Wally Boyd. But her bliss threatens to unravel on the very first day of their luxurious honeymoon cruise, when Skye becomes convinced that she has glimpsed her mother on board! Surely even momzilla May wouldn’t have manipulated Wally into booking the same trip that her knitting group is taking…or would she?

May’s possible presence can’t cool Skye and Wally’s ardor on their personal Love Boat, but discovering knitting expert Guinevere Stallings as she lies dying from a stab wound leaves them untangling the clues of yet another murder investigation rather than getting tangled in the sheets. Since Skye found the body, she’s considered a top suspect, but she’s far from the only one. Guinevere’s imperious ways needled nearly everyone, and she left an impressive number of enemies. It’s up to the crafty newlyweds to figure out which of the wronged parties was angry enough to cast Guinevere off…permanently.

Re: Murder Of A Needled Knitter

Those 5 things are so very, very true!! I'm so sorry you couldn't find a way to put the Dooziers on a cruise- even the thought has me laughing like a loon. As for your question, I try to avoid hobby groups other than book clubs but yes, I've been in a book club with an individual that should be thankful the members didn't read a lot of mystery novels or I'm sure they'd have figured out a way to dispose of her permanently LOL!!!

I was an assistant teacher in a big knitting group a few
years back. There was one woman who joined. In the
beginning, she was very nice, then out of the blue, she
decided to pick on me, in front of the others, for no
reason. This continued, and rather than have me totally
lose it in front of the group, I decided to just drop out of
class. Afterward, the class decided they had enough of her,
too, and missed me, so they disbanded. I have since been
asked to come back and start a new knitting group, with a
new group of women, and we both knit and crochet. I'm still
getting used to these new personalities, and things are
going smoother, but it's a far cry from having the "one
woman" that I had to deal with in the old class!! I heard
she shows up at this one from time to time, and we'll cross
this bridge when it happens, but the new women can't stand
her!! lol
