But while Barb's advanced stitches are giving Kelly the slip, a more deadly problem soon has her friend coming apart at the seams. A young woman has accused Barb's son, Tommy-a young doctor doing his residency-of assaulting her. The yarns spun by the local rumor mill are bad enough, but when the young woman is found dead in her ransacked apartment, Tommy becomes the number one suspect. The police are ready to close the case, but Kelly is convinced that there are a few more likely suspects. Now she has to knit together the clues herself to uncover a killer who doesn't seem to drop a stitch...

Absolutely terrible!
Full of he said, she said, pseudo-sleuthing, unrealistic gossipy conversations, all information repeated at least three times between different characters.
Totally unrelated knitting subplot against the crime that you never see. Not one of the characters actually is involved in the crime scene or the victim.
Do not waste your time.

Found this book ordinary, focus on people and not the crime.

When I first started reading this series, I overlooked the poor writing style as I enjoyed the friendship bonds and camaraderie between the characters in this series; however, as the writing style is getting worse and worse (many high school students can write with more flair) that it's time for me quit wasting my precious reading time and say goodbye to this series.
