Josie Blair left Dorset Falls twelve years ago in hopes of making it big in New York City. But after earning an overpriced master?s degree and getting fired by a temperamental designer, she finds herself heading back to her hometown. Her great-uncle was injured in a car accident, and newly unemployed Josie is the only person available to take care of him. Uncle Eb?s wife didn?t survive the crash, so Josie is also tasked with selling the contents of her Aunt Cora?s yarn shop. But the needling ladies of the Charity Knitters Association pose a far bigger challenge than a shop full of scattered skeins...Miss Marple Knits is one of the few businesses still open in the dreary downtown. Josie can?t imagine how it stayed open for so long, yet something about the cozy, resilient little shop appeals to her.

For those who like mysteries, but not the blood, guts, gore and guns type, this book is for you. Set in an “almost” ghost town, comprised of one knitting shop, a garage and a grocery store/café; 1 accidental death plus 1 murder equals many many secrets held in this small town. Josie arrives in town to care for her crotchety great-uncle who needs an extra hand with farm chores until he is back on his feet again. Josie is definitely NOT the country girl as she hails from New York, and is taking a leave from a fashion designer job. Her uncle recently lost his wife Cora, in an accident and she was the sole proprietor of the knitting shop – aptly named Miss Marple Knits. The remaining members of the Charity Knitters Association seem to be tying knots in every murder theory Josie has. Told from a knitter’s perspective, (includes several knitting patterns), this cozy mystery shows that when you band together, you can get things done, including solving a murder or two! First in a series called “ A Tangled Web Mystery”. (Submitted by Jamie).
