Description

Yarned and Dangerous Time has not been kind to sleepy Dorset Falls, Connecticut, where an erstwhile resident is hoping to bring a tattered yarn shop back to life—but with a murderer on the loose, the whole town is in knots . . .
 
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. But when one of the town’s most persnickety knitters turns up dead in a pile of cashmere yarn, Josie realizes there’s something truly twisted lurking beneath the town’s decaying façade . . .

    Yarned and Dangerous by Sadie Hartwell is the first book in A Tangled Web Mystery series. Josie Blair lives in New York City and works for Otto Heinrich at the Haus of Heinrich. She gets fired regularly because of his temper and lecherous ways. Josie’s mother, Katherine (single mother and teacher) needs Josie to come back to Dorset Falls, Connecticut to take care of her Uncle Eb (Eben Lloyd). Uncle Eb broke his leg in a car accident that killed his wife, Cora. Katherine is going away on a cruise. She would cancel it if she could, but it is non-refundable (and she really deserves a vacation). Since Josie was just fired again (refusing Otto’s advances), she agrees to take care of Uncle Eb until his cast comes off. Cora (Eb’s deceased wife) owned a yarn shop called Miss Marple Knits. Josie has agreed to go through the shop and clear it out. The first day Josie receives two offers to buy the shop from very pushy women. The next day Josie finds Lillian Woodruff dead in the stockroom on top of a pile of cashmere yarn (such a waste of yarn). Who wanted Lillian dead and how did they get into Miss Marple Knits? Josie sets out to find the killer. Josie also has to deal with the building’s owners serving an eviction notice. Diantha Humphries (and her son who dated Josie in high school) have plans for the building location. What are they up to? Between Miss Marple Knits, the murder, and Uncle Eb and his farm, Josie has her hands full. Will Josie find the killer before the killer finds her? Will Josie see a future for herself in Dorset Falls or will she return to New York? Yarned and Dangerous was just delightful. Great characters (even grumpy Uncle Eb), good mystery, and so many beautiful yarns (great descriptions provided in the book). Yarned and Dangerous captured my interest right away and held it throughout the book. There were not a lot of clues provided, but there are enough to figure out the killer. There is a little romance (just the right amount) in the book for Josie with Mitch Woodruff (nephew to Lillian Woodruff who was killed). I give Yarned and Dangerous 4.25 out of 5 stars. Yarned and Dangerous is a good start to a new series. I look forward to reading the next book in A Tangled Web Mystery series. I received a complimentary copy of Yarned and Dangerous from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
