Description:

A new business might add some much-needed charm to downtown Dorset Falls—and draw tourists to Josie’s yarn shop. But when someone gets murdered, a close-knit community could come undone . . .

Shop owner Josie Blair is finally settling into the pace of living in Dorset Falls, Connecticut. Between running Miss Marple’s Knits, jumpstarting a blog, and handcrafting items with the help of her knitting pals, Josie’s too preoccupied to worry about her past in New York. And thanks to Lyndon and Harry, the owners of the brand new antique shop across the street, she has another project in her midst—repurposing a box of vintage crocheted doilies adorned with the most curious needlework . . . 

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

My Thoughts:

This book is the second in the tangled web mystery series in this one Josie has rented out the other building next door to her shop to a new business of selling antiques.  Before long Lyndon is found dead and Harry is standing over the body of his partner.  Who killed Lyndon and why?

Add to that mystery is multiple of others like the disappearance of Bea Ryder who disappeared a long time ago and Helen her best friend would just feel so much better knowing what happened to her friend.  Had someone murdered her or did she move somewhere else without telling anyone?

Then the local fighting between Eb and Roy gets to an all time high, when Roy is going crazy and acting odd around town.  Eb seems to be spending an awful lot of time in his workshop is be really working on art or back to his fighting with Roy?

This series is so much fun to read, to go back to Dorset Falls and see what everyone is up to.  And this book did not disappoint in the slightest.  It pulls you in and you find yourself traveling along with Josie and her friends as they work, enjoy each others company and solve a mystery or two!  Can't wait to see what is next!
