Book Review — Purls and Poison — Anne Canadeo

BLURBbook review cozy purls poison

When a fellow Black Sheep Knitter is suspected of poisoning her coworker, the group puts down their needles and takes up their friend’s defense . . .
 
Suzanne Cavanaugh has just about had it with her office rival at Prestige Properties. It’s bad enough that Liza Devereaux is constantly needling her at work, but when she shows up at one of Suzanne’s open houses to poach potential buyers, it’s the last straw. No one in the office fails to hear the two snarling at each other.

When Liza is later found dead in her office cubicle—poisoned by a diet shake—Suzanne becomes the prime suspect. It’s soon discovered, though, that Liza had double-crossed so many around town and stashed their dark secrets in her designer handbags that anyone could be the culprit.

The Black Sheep Knitters have no doubt their friend has been framed—but they need to prove it. Stirred to action, they get together to catch a sneaky killer who’s trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes . . .

My Review

I delved straight into this book which is the second in a series and while I enjoyed it, there was a lot of backstory that was missing.  It was difficult to really get under the skin of the characters and for them to feel real. However, with all that said, I still enjoyed the book which must say a lot for the writing. The plot was entertaining, and kept me guessing until the end. Personally I had a different ending pegged, but then I like a good twist!

Star rating 3.5 but only because I didn’t know the characters. I should have started at book one. If you want to get that, then click here.
