Pamela Paterson's daughter is home from college for the holidays, but when Penny finds a body while walking out in the woods, things take on a sinister cast. The victim is Millicent Farthingale, a wealthy craft shop owner who seemed to attract all the wrong sort of people, mainly scammers after her money. There's only a handknit scarf connecting the killer to the crime. Will Pamela and the rest of the Knit & Nibblers be able to use that to close the case?
The characters are important in Peggy Ehrhart's Knit & Nibble cozy series, and I do enjoy them all, especially Pamela who has a tendency to remind me of me as far as my wardrobe (and a few other things) go.
In this fourth book in the series, Pamela is learning to trust her college-age daughter in the midst of all the holiday festivities. The mystery is a good one in Silent Knit, Deadly Knit, but it definitely takes a backseat to Christmas so keep that in mind. If you're in the mood for lots of holiday cheer and a little dash of mystery to spice it up, this will be perfect for you.
