This is the twelfth book in the long-running Black Sheep & Company series by Anne Canadeo. I’m not really caught up in the series and really want to get back to the early books, but I read enough to get a good handle on the characters when I started seeing these new books pop up in NetGalley. Yup, I couldn’t resist. I really love these friends and how they’re really more like sisters with their love and care for each other and each other’s loved ones. I hope it continues for a long time.
My Goodreads review:
Strangers on a Skein by Anne Canadeo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’d missed reading about these friends, so I was happy to grab this ARC when it came to NetGalley. I loved the title and kind of based some of my guesses on it. Phoebe, the youngest of the knitting friends was in the spotlight this time. I felt so bad for her having waited a long time for a spot at the farmers’ and crafters’ market then having all kinds of issues. Her sales did great, but her other luck went down the drain. There was a lot of unfriendliness going on at the market, and unfortunately (or maybe not) Phoebe’s only friendly face was her ex-boyfriend Harry in a neighboring stall.
There were tons of secrets and layers to this mystery, and I had a hard time putting it down. Intrigue was everywhere at one point, but we always got a good taste of what this series has always been based on, the friendship of these knitting women. Boy, was the showdown and car chase a good one! I was proud of Phoebe for taking control when she did. I had my suspicions about someone, but I can’t say a whole lot due to it being a more complex mystery. Just enjoy, lol.
I loved the epilogue which was probably long-awaited by fans. A sweet piece of news makes me very eager to read the next book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
