MYSTERY Hartwell, S.

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...


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

"Plenty of quirky Yankee characters and a clever clue make for an enjoyable read."—Kirkus Reviews
