On Skein of Death by Allie Pleiter – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Goodreads description:

For Libby Beckett, opening her charming yarn shop, and introducing customers to the joys of knitting and crochet, is the work she was meant to do. Until the yarn she loves is used for murder….

 

Libby has come home to Collinstown, Maryland to live her dream and open her own yarn shop, aptly named Y.A.R.N., along the Chester River. To Libby, Y.A.R.N. stands for “You’re Absolutely Ready Now.” But the acronym changes whenever inspiration strikes, and customers add to the list of suggestions that fill the blackboard wall in a shop stuffed with color, fiber, and comfort.

 

Libby is thrilled when she lands famous Norwegian knitting celebrity Perle Langager for a series of events at Y.A.R.N. Libby’s English bulldog, Hank, has been modeling one of Perle’s doggie sweaters, and customers just can’t wait to see Perle in action. The mayor of Collinstown even decrees a Collinstown Yarn Day to celebrate. But once Perle arrives in town, she seems distracted and on edge. And when she’s found strangled with a skein of red yarn, Libby knows she has to solve a knotty mystery before her new life unravels.

My thoughts:

On Skein of Death is a sweet start to a new cozy mystery series. Libby’s Y.A.R.N. shop is a quaint, comfotable sounding place that I’d love to go hang out in, if only it were real! The characters are very well crafted and I was genuinely worried for Libby when a knitting celebrity came to town and ended up strangled with a skein of yarn. Of course Libby had to solve the crime before anyone got the wrong idea. A good mystery, likeable characters, a hint of romance and a very charming setting make this a wonderfully enjoyable first installment. I look forward to reading more of Libby’s adventures.
