Holly Quinn
"How nice to escape to Heartsford, Wisconsin and join Samantha Kane and her friends as they unravel the clues when a local yarn store owner is killed. The small town setting feels authentic and the characters are all likeable. In this well plotted mystery Samantha manages to weave together the evidence and bring it to a satisfying conclusion. The yarn info and the sock patterns are an extra bonus."
