    A crafter and a killer...Oh My!

    Sammy Kane is busy running her late friend Kate’s craft shop. Community Craft has always been the place in town where people come to connect and relate with others. When craft guru, Jane Johnson visits, the town is excited to meet with their idol and learn some techniques. But, when Sammy finds her dead on a park bench, she intends to find out all of Jane’s secrets, even the ones pertaining to Kate. This was a great cozy mystery that was chock full of suspense. I was on the edge of my seat and staying up late to find out the identity of the killer. I love how the town gets together to help one another out and the businesses support each other. It was great to see Sammy’s family interact with one another. Lastly, the budding romance added a little sweetness to the tension of the story. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Sammy is such an impetuous innocent

    Sammy is such an impetuous innocent. She’s also a bit of a trouble magnet. Once again, she’s tangled up in one of Detective Nash’s investigations. And this time it all ties back to the loss of her best friend. I have a feeling it’s just my suspicious nature that doesn’t trust anyone that meant the true culprit wasn’t much of a surprise to me. But it did keep me guessing to the end if I was going to be right or if I’d bought into a bright shiny red herring. I also love seeing the romantic tension between Sammy and Liam. I can’t wait to see where this is going to take us. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book through NetGalley.

    Fun Cozy Mystery series that takes place in WI.!

    When I saw this one available on NetGalley, I had to give it a go, being from Wisconsin. And Holly Quinn did not disappoint with the composition of her scenes, making me feel like I was in one of the various small towns in Wisconsin. She was also spot on with how good the cheese is here, compared to most other states! Quinn had excellent dialogue between the characters, keeping it to how real people talk, and adding in some of the states colloquialisms. Her characters were also well developed. Even if you haven’t read the first book in the Handcrafted Mystery series, A Crafter Knits a Clue, she had all the characters fleshed out enough that you weren’t questioning what had happened in the first book. Sammy’s relationship with the detective was a bit more love/hate than love/love, which is common in other cozy mysteries. At times it was a bit much for me, how quickly she became mad with the detective. But whenever I have strong emotions towards a character, I feel as if the author is doing an excellent job writing them. It’s just if this was real life, perhaps Sammy would not be someone I would hang out with all the time. The mystery itself was well written, with lots of clues and some misdirects. I was convinced it was one character until close to the end of the book. And with all of the cozies I’ve read, this doesn’t happen too often anymore. I would definitely recommend this book, and am excited to see where Quinn takes this series.

    Well done!

    cozy-mystery, Wisconsin, murder, handcrafted, small-business, small-town, family-dynamics, law-enforcement, amateur-sleuth Well done! "Wisconsin has two seasons: winter and construction (obstruction)." Yup, that's about right. The story takes place in a small farm town in southern Wisconsin where everyone is connected. After a simple setting of the stage to understand the characters, the murder of a crafting celebrity who is in town for a book signing occurs. Let the sleuthing begin! The publisher's blurb covers much but there's lots of red herrings and plot twists to keep the reader's interest in the mystery and the interconnected characters. I loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
