You Better Knot Die by Betty Hechtman is the fifth book in the “Crochet” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley, November 2010
Her crochet group, The Tarzana Hookers, is working overtime for the holidays-but Molly Pink is having trouble finding time to crochet so much as a snowflake. The bookstore where she works is adding a yarn department, and planning a huge launch party where the mysterious author of a popular series will reveal his or her true identity.
But before the author appears, another person disappears. The husband of Molly’s neighbor is missing. When a suicide note arrives, it appears the husband has jumped off the Catalina Ferry- but Molly smells something fishy. Despite the protestations of her detective boyfriend, Molly’s soon hooked on unraveling another mystery. She better watch out-or her sleuthing may get her on someone’s naughty list.
Molly is on the case when she suspects something is amiss with her neighbor’s apparent suicide. Molly with help from her friends are on the trail that will bring this killer to justice. This was a good read that kept me intrigued as there were two mysteries yet to be solved. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. My rating: 3 stars
