Blog Tour~ Knit, Purl, Die by Anne Canadeo

Counting on each other...
Meet the Black Sheep knitters -- five smart, funny women who love to knit, gossip, and solve crimes.
Gloria Sterling had it all -- money, looks, and a new sexy young husband. So when she's found floating face down in her own swimming pool, shock waves ripple through tiny Plum Harbor. At the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, Maggie Messina and her circle are devastated to lose their dear friend -- a woman as colorful as her fabulous yarn creations.
The police are quick to call it an accident, but sorting out Gloria's final hours leaves too many loose ends to satisfy her friends. The vivacious, fiftysomething cougar had her French manicured tips in more than a few pots, and the threads of some inside deals stashed in her chic knitting tote.
Who was the last person to see Gloria alive on that quiet summer night? Two empty wine glasses suggest she wasn't home alone knitting the entire evening.... The Black Sheep need to know the truth and set out to unravel -- stitch by stitch -- the weighty secrets that pulled poor Gloria under.

my review~ Knit, Purl, Die is the second book in the Black Sheep Knitting Club series, written by Anne Canadeo. I have not had the chance to read 'While My Pretty One Knits' yet, but it is on my TBR list! Knit, Purl, Die can easily be a stand alone book but I'm looking forward to reading 'While My Pretty One Knits' as well as the books to come! Knit, Purl, Die reads easily & quickly, Ms. Canadeo knits together a story that draws you in. The characters are very realistic and theres a few twists in the story to keep you reading!
I've never read a book that is centered around a hobby before, and while I don't knit (yet!) I found it great that Ms. Canadeo mentions the Warm Up America blanket (actually the club is making one!) and I crocheted a blanket myself! Theres also a couple of recipes and knitting pattern websites mentioned!

Nice review. I started learning to knit several years ago, but had to stop right in the middle of my lessons. This book makes me want to start over.
