I have two words for this book: guilty pleasure. My husband leaned over and asked me what I was reading, and I very quietly admitted it was a knitting mystery novel. I was a little ashamed to be reading it, but I also couldn’t stop.
The beginning of the book is a little slow, and the bulk of the action happens in the last quarter, or so, of the book. The characters were well-developed and seemed like the people you might find in your LYS.
It was a super quick read. In fact, it was quite good for knitting and reading at the same time.
I ended up getting the second book as well, so overall, this was worth the read.
