Expected publication: August 25th 2020 by Kensington Publishing Corporation
When a spooky celebration in Arborville, New Jersey conjures real scares, can Pamela and the Knit and Nibble Club sink their teeth into a bone-chilling mystery that just won't rest in peace?
Among the countless revelers at the town's much-anticipated Halloween parade, a woman dressed as Little Bo Peep is the only one making people scream bloody murder. In a scene straight out of a horror movie, the Knit and Nibblers find the nursery rhyme character dead with thick strands of yarn looped around her neck. Pamela and her best friend, Bettina, are set on pinning down who wanted the woman gone forever, but it'll take every trick they can muster to catch the culprit without becoming the next poor souls to join Little Bo Peep's dark, endless sleep . . .
This is the sixth book in the A Knit & Nibble mystery series by Peggy Ehrhart.
I think the best thing about this story was Pamela herself. I loved following her around and seeing how she just lived her life. Quite insightful. The mystery involving the yarn was just a bonus. The victim here was a popular yarn blogger who received a lot of items from various sources to review. So when Pamela goes to help root out some gems in this blogger’s stash, she realizes she really doesn’t need to add more to her own hoard of stuff. Any normal person would jut grab the goodies and run. This gave me a lot of respect for Pamela.
Pamela tries to help the local police department by offering advice but her insights come to rest on deaf ears. I think this happens all too often when people’s ideas are immediately discounted before even taking them into consideration.
This is definitely a series I want to continue on with. Just loved the whole ambiance of it and the mystery was just spot on!
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
