    Knitting Can Be Murder

    This first book in a new series introduces us to Pamela Patterson, Mother, widow, magazine editor, and member of the Knit and Nibble group of knitters who meet each week to share knitting projects and have a snack. When Amy Morgan, a former colleague of her late husband who helped Pamela through her loss, moves to town, Pamela notices she’s a knitter and given the invites her to join the Knit and Nibble group. But Amy doesn’t show and after everyone leaves Pamela finds Amy dead in the shrubs in her yard…with a knitting needle stuck in her chest. Did the murderer randomly use the needles Amy was carrying in her knitting bag? Worried that the needle points to a member of the Knit and Nibble group, Amy and her best friend, Bettina, begin sleuthing to find the murderer and clear the members of their group. While I certainly hadn’t nailed down the murdered and was surprised, they did pique my interest but I couldn’t come up with a reason why they would have murdered Amy. The clues were enough to make me wonder, but not strong enough to have figured it out until the reveal. While I enjoy cozy mysteries, this one just didn’t quite click for me as I found Pamela a bit boring and a few things just didn’t flow well for me in the story. But being the first in a new series, I look forward to seeing the second installment and seeing where the author takes things.

    Steady Plot Cozy, Good Characters

    Steady plot, pleasant characters. The Knit & Nibble group meets every Tuesday evening. Pamela, Bettina, Nell, Jean, Karen & Roland are looking forward to welcoming new member Amy. Unfortunately Amy is found murdered in Pamela's hedge as they leave Pamela's house. The small college town of Arborville NJ provides a number of potential murderers along with potential romance possibilities. There are enough leads for multiple suspects to be plausible and a surprise ending. A comfortable cozy with lots of potentially interesting adventures for future stories.

    First book in A Knit & Nibble Mystery series

    Murder, She Knit by Peggy Ehrhart is the first story in A Knit and Nibble Mystery series. Pamela Patterson is a widow who lives in Arborville, New Jersey. Pamela is associate editor of Fiber Craft magazine and is the founder of the Knit and Nibble knitting club. On her way to the co-op grocery store, Pamela runs into Amy Morgan who has just moved to town. Pamela has not seen Amy in five years. She invites Amy to the Knit and Nibble meeting that will be held at her house. Unfortunately, Amy fails to show up for the meeting. After everyone has departed, Pamela finds Amy dead in the bushes with a metal knitting needle sticking out of her chest. Pamela notices that Amy’s knitting bag is missing. Who killed Amy and why? Pamela believes that the police do not always ask the right questions and decides to conduct her own investigation. While walking home from the market, Pamela finds a woman dead behind Amy’s apartment building. Are the two deaths connected? Pamela and her friend, Bettina set out to unravel the clues and hook the killer in Murder, She Knit. Murder, She Knit is a cute cozy mystery. The book is nicely written and, for the most part, has good pacing. I do wish that the author had taken the time to establish the characters. I would have liked more detail on Pamela and the town. I liked the knitting theme and the beautiful yarn descriptions. The author mentions a knitting harness that allows knitters to knit with one hand (I am looking that one up). The mystery is straightforward. There is some misdirection and the author provided good clues that will aid readers in solving the crime. I kept hoping for more action (anything besides questioning and speculation). Pamela’s method of questioning leaves a lot to be desired. The police are in the periphery in the book (practically nonexistent). I felt that many of the scenes felt contrived (farfetched). The members of the knitting group attend the funeral of a woman they had never met (because she was about to join their group—would you take off work) and she happens to see a man wearing argyle socks that match one’s the victim knitted are just two examples. I also did not understand Pamela talking with a reporter after finding Amy’s body (come on into my kitchen and let’s chat). There is a lot of time spent shopping, knitting, cooking, chatting, and taking care of the stray cat. The series has potential, and I am hoping for improvement in Died in the Wool. My rating for Murder, She Knit is 3 out of 5 stars. There is a recipe for Autumn Apple Cake at the end of the book.

    Enertaining

    I appreciated the way the story continued after disclosing the villian of the piece. A lot leave you wondering after about some of the ongoing features. Made me consider buying the next sequel.
