My Review:

I’m really loving this series! This is just the second book based at Bless Your Art in Sweet River, Texas. The person who owns it is Ainsley McGregor and in both stories she and her Great Dane, George Clooney, are the ones to discover the body of a murder victim. Ainsley then works with her colleagues and friends to uncover who the murderer is. Now this gets her into bother with her brother, who is the Sheriff and would much rather she not put herself into danger by investigating the murder. However, Ainsley and her friends are determined to prove the murderer isn’t one of them and this puts Ainsley in the killer’s sights . . . .

This is a delightful cosy murder mystery with great characters, plenty of humour, red herrings and misleading clues designed to keep you guessing. It is a fun read packed with laugh out loud incidents, danger and determination. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending both this and the first book in the series A Case for the Winemaker by Candace HavensThey are standalone reads but involve many members of the same community and I’ll definitely be looking out for more in this series in future!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding it an enthralling, highly entertaining and enjoyable read.

Blurb:

Spin a yarn…at your own risk

Everyone at Bless Your Art in Sweet River, Texas, is excited about the Yarn Goddess (yes, that’s her real name) coming to town. Ainsley McGregor has set up a special event at the local community center, but when old Mrs. Whedon doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the Goddess about using quality yarn, a fight breaks out. Who knew the octogenarian had ninja moves like that?

It’s all fun and games until George Clooney, Ainsley’s Great Dane, finds Ms. Yarn’s dead body in a booth at Bless Your Art. Now the prime suspect is Mrs. Whedon, and while she’s not the easiest woman to get along with, there’s no way she’s the killer. At least, Ainsley doesn’t think so. As this yarn unravels, Ainsley and her quirky friends learn some interesting things about the case and the Goddess’s checkered past. But there’s a killer on the loose, and George may be the only thing protecting Ainsley from certain death.
