For fans of Betty Hechtman and Maggie Sefton, the latest craft frenzy is Holly Quinn’s Handcrafted series debut.
Sammy Kane just moved back to her hometown to run a craft store. But when the owner of a nearby yarn shop is murdered, Sammy will needle little help finding the killer.
When a heartbroken Samantha “Sammy” Kane returns to her hometown of Heartsford, WI, for her best friend Kate’s funeral, she learns that Kate’s much-loved craft store is in danger of perishing with its owner. Confounding all her expectations of the life she would live, Sammy moves back home with her golden retriever and takes over Community Craft. A few doors down Main Street, fellow new arrival Ingrid Wilson has just opened the Yarn Barn, a real “purl” of a shop. But when Sammy strolls over to see if Ingrid could use a little help, she finds Ingrid’s dead body—with a green aluminum knitting needle lodged in her throat.
Detective Liam Nash is thrown for a loop as every single citizen of Heartsford seems to have a theory about Ingrid’s murder. And nearly everyone in town seems to be a suspect. But the last time Sammy did any sleuthing was as a little moppet. And this is not fun and games. Sammy is eager to help the handsome Liam—who seems to be endlessly inventive in finding reasons to talk with her—and when Liam arrests affable woodworker Miles Danbury, Sammy puts everything on the line to help clear Miles.
As the case comes dangerously close to unraveling, Sammy must stitch the clues together. But the killer has other plans—and if Sammy’s not careful, she may wind up in a perilous knot in A Crafter Knits a Clue, the first warm and woolly yarn of Holly Quinn’s new Handcrafted mysteries.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Great start to this new crafty cozy mystery series. We meet Sam who along with her sister and cousin manages to get involved in a local murder. With childhood nostalgia they dive in much to the dismay of others while also trying to live their varied lives which just makes things fun. I especially love the lab and Tyler. If you like crafts and mystery then you should try this one. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

  1. I am a knitter and this sound wonderful.

  2. Thank you for your review on "A Crafter Knits a Clue" by Holly Quinn and for being part of the book tour.

    The cover is sure an eye catcher with the cute dog and the yarn coming out to make the shape of the skull. Can't wait for the opportunity to read this great sounding book.
