Silent Knit, Deadly Knit (A Knit & Nibble Mystery #4) by Peggy Ehrhart


Silent Knit, Deadly Knit

Kindle Edition, 304 pages
Published November 1st 2019 by Kensington Books





Goodreads synopsis: 
When murder silences the Christmas cheer in charming Arborville, New Jersey, Pamela and her Knit and Nibble pals must unravel the most bone-chilling mystery this side of the North Pole . . .

Pamela has been in merry spirits since her artsy daughter Penny returned home from college for the holidays. But their mother-daughter bonding time gets cut short when a terrified Penny stumbles upon the dumped body of Millicent Farthingale, a wealthy craft shop owner who was popular for all the wrong reasons. From a scheming business partner to a seedy husband several years her junior, Millicent attracted scammers so in love with her assets, they’d toss her down a chimney to get their paws on them. Now, with only a hand-knit red scarf connecting the killer to the crime, Pamela and the Knit and Nibblers could use some extra creativity as they find out who’s really naughty or nice in Arborville—because going up against a looming culprit is DIY or die!

4 Stars 

This is the fourth book in the A Knit & Nibble mystery series by Peggy Ehrhart.

This book throws a whole new spin on things when it isn’t Pamela who finds the body but her daughter, Penny. Millicent Farthingale is an influencer in the crafting community but not for all the right reasons. Pamela finds that a red scarf with green ends is an important clue and they do a very good jig around the storyline trying to find out how it is connected to the murder.

I thought this was okay. It kept my interest to a point but I have had a lot of other things on my mind lately so I am not holding this book responsible for my lack of focus. The knitting parts were super interesting but I wish there had been some crochet love thrown in there too. I am a crochet girl.

If you are a knitter, there are some great tips at the end plus some great recipes to boot!

If you love a good cozy mystery, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
