Next month on Saturday, October 3, we'll be chatting about the light hearted mystery, A Farewell to Yarns by Jill Churchill. It's the second mystery in the Jane Jeffrey series, but it is not crucial that we read book 2 before the others. Here's the summary from her publisher:
Life is hectic enough for suburban single mom Jane Jeffrey this Christmas season--what with her having to survive cutthroat church bazaar politics and finish knitting the afghan from Hell at the same time. The last thing the harried homemaker needs is an unwelcome visit from old acquaintance Phyllis Wagner and her ill-mannered brat of a teenage son. And the Wagner picture becomes even more complicated when a dead body is woven into the design.
Solving a murder, however, is a lot more interesting than knitting, so Jane's determined to sew the whole thing up. But with a plethora of suspects and the appearance of a second corpse, this deadly tapestry is getting quite complex indeed. And Jane has to be very careful not to get strangled herself by the twisted threads shes attempting to unravel.
I think we all have struggled with an afghan from Hell at one point or another :D
