Purls and Poison–review

This is the tenth book in the Black Sheep Knitting series by Anne Canadeo, or to get a little technical, it’s the second one in the renamed series, Black Sheep & Company, which is now with Kensington Publishing. I’d only read books 1 and 2, but I felt like I knew the characters well enough to read this when the chance came up to get it from NetGalley.

My Goodreads review:

Purls and Poison (Black Sheep Knitting Mysteries, #10)Purls and Poison by Anne Canadeo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time because of one of the knitters herself being accused of murdering her co-worker. As the story unfolded, it just seemed like poor Suzanne couldn’t catch a break, because the police were uncovering yet more reasons why they thought she killed Liza.

Liza Devereaux was a major thorn in Suzanne Cavanaugh’s side. She’d always been overly competitive in the real estate market, but stealing a $2 million dollar deal right out from Suzanne’s nose made Suzanne really angry. Not angry enough to kill her, but who did and decided that it would be all fun and games if they framed Suzanne? That’s what her knitter friends were going to find out, because clearly to them the police had no one else in their radar except their good friend. Even though Maggie’s boyfriend was one of the detectives, Maggie didn’t let that stop her from being fiercely loyal to Suzanne. How was Charles going to react to that?

I thought the book ended really great! It had an exciting showdown in which Suzanne showed a lot of bravery. I had one person in mind for the killer the whole time until the reveal. There were plenty of suspects and some red herrings along the way as well.

I haven’t read all the books in the series before this one, but I have read the first two and was very quickly swept into their friendship and knitting circle. By the second book, they were old friends to me, so it was great to go back even though quite a few books had passed, and catch up with them. I do still intend to read all the books in between, but I couldn’t resist requesting this one from NetGalley.
