Description

When an antiques-store owner is murdered, a close-knit community could come undone: "An enjoyable read."—Kirkus Reviews
Shop owner Josie Blair is finally settling into the pace of living in Dorset Falls, Connecticut. Between running Miss Marple Knits, jumpstarting a blog, and handcrafting items with the help of her knitting pals, Josie's too preoccupied to worry about her past. And thanks to Lyndon and Harry, the owners of the brand-new antique shop next door, she's also busy repurposing a box of vintage crocheted doilies adorned with the most curious needlework...

But before Josie can formally welcome her neighbors, she discovers Lyndon on the floor of his shop stabbed to death by a rusty old pair of sheep shears. 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...

INCLUDES ORIGINAL KNITTING PATTERNS!

"Hartwell's charming, humorous, and villainous characters will please cozy fans."—Publishers Weekly

She attended St. Lawrence University, graduating with a degree in history, and has worked as a waitress, handbag designer/manufacturer, paralegal, and copy editor before turning to writing full time. Now she gets to play with yarn and make up stories whenever she wants, and wishes everyone had a job as much fun as hers.

        July 3, 2017
        Small business and murder share the stage in Hartwell’s agreeable second Tangled Web mystery (after 2015’s Yarned and Dangerous). Josie Blair, the owner of Miss Marple Knits in Dorset Falls, Conn., returns to her shop one afternoon to find her new tenant, antique dealer Lyndon Bailey, dead behind the counter. Standing over the body is Lyndon’s business partner, Harry Oglethorpe, who says he just got there. If Harry didn’t do it, who did? As the suspect pool expands, a California filmmaker arrives in town, as does Lyndon’s beautiful but obnoxious niece with plans for an antiquing reality show. Another new business is readying to open, a craft brewery out on the farm of Bea Ryder, a local who disappeared decades earlier. Josie’s gut tells her that much of what’s going on is connected, and her hunch leads to a clue that it really is a tangled web. Meanwhile, the ongoing feud between Josie’s cantankerous great-uncle Eb and curmudgeon Roy Woodruff brings Josie closer to Roy’s handsome bachelor farmer son, Mitch. Hartwell’s charming, humorous, and villainous characters will please cozy fans. Agent: John Talbot, Talbot Fortune Agency.
