Language I read the book in: English
Did I like it? Yes
For people who: love very cozy mysteries, rather uneventful plots and nice people.
This is another really lovely start to a themed mystery series that won’t get your heart rate up at all, but will rather entertain you pleasantly.
Kelly finds her aunt’s killer while at the same time gets her work done via home office, learns how to knit, socializes with tons of new people. The reader wonders how any of the people in the shop get their (house-)work done. They seem to hang out around a big table and knit all day, in between working a little at a cafè, as a realtor or a programmer. Rather unrealistic, but what the heck!
The snooping around is done in a rather moderate way. A confrontation with the murderer that in other books often occurs with no precautions taken and then results in the impending death of the sleuth who is rescued only by a whisker happens here very reasonably with backup and no danger whatsoever. This book won’t have you at the edge of your seat, but leave you happily satisfied and content – and isn’t that the purpose of a cozy? Loved it!
