On Skein Of Death by Allie Pleiter Great Escapes Tour Review

 August 6 – My Reading Journeys – REVIEW  

About the book 

For Libby Beckett, opening her charming yarn shop, and introducing customers to the joys of knitting and crochet, is the work she was meant to do. Until the yarn she loves is used for murder….

Libby has come home to Collinstown, Maryland to live her dream and open her own yarn shop, aptly named Y.A.R.N., along the Chester River. To Libby, Y.A.R.N. stands for “You’re Absolutely Ready Now.” But the acronym changes whenever inspiration strikes, and customers add to the list of suggestions that fill the blackboard wall in a shop stuffed with color, fiber, and comfort.

Libby is thrilled when she lands famous Norwegian knitting celebrity Perle Langager for a series of events at Y.A.R.N. Libby’s English bulldog, Hank, has been modeling one of Perle’s doggie sweaters, and customers just can’t wait to see Perle in action. The mayor of Collinstown even decrees a Collinstown Yarn Day to celebrate. But once Perle arrives in town, she seems distracted and on edge. And when she’s found strangled with a skein of red yarn, Libby knows she has to solve a knotty mystery before her new life unravels.

And I thought

Sometimes covers just get me.  And this one does! 

Doesnt  Hank (the dog on the cover) just beckon you to turn the pages.  Especially after reading the description.  

That red yarn laying by Hank made me wonder was poor Hank an eye witness to the crime?  

 On Skein Of Death was/is a fun read.  Just your fun cozy.  Set in a small town.  I love the Y.A.R.N. shop setting.  I am not a knitter so that part of the story didn't intrigue but that is o.k.  

But I do crochet and wish there was a 'real' shop like Y.A.R.N. filled with fun characters. 

Lilly is charming and delightful. 

And the mayor kind of thinks so too.  But they have a history.  Maybe there will be some rekindling. 

Especially if people keep meeting thier demise.  Because Lilly will have to find the answers.

I was quickly turning the pages anyway in this first book in the series and I am anxiously waiting for more. 

I received a Complimentary copy.

My review will appear on Good Reads and Retail sites. 

Thank you Allie Pleiter for touring with Great Escapes and giving me a chance to meet by you and your new Cozy Mystery.
