Curiosity Killed the Cat
Knitting graffiti, in Plum Harbor? Maggie Messina doubts it could ever happen in her quiet village. Until the new parking meters on Main Street are found covered with cat-faced cozies. In the dark of night, the mysterious Knit Kats have struck again The infamous gang of stitching graffiti artists are totally harmless, and their pranks all in good fun. Or so Maggie and her friends think. Until a yarn-covered corpse is discovered a few days later--the tangles identical to Knit Kat handiwork.
These threads of evidence should be easy to follow. But the clever Knit Kats hide behind a website and secret identities. The murderer could be anyone. A familiar face in town, even a copy Kat. But when Maggie's assistant, Phoebe, becomes the prime suspect, the knitting friends know the police have dropped a few stitches. With no time to rest on their needles, the Black Sheep set out to unmask the crafty killer. No simple task, when all Knit Kats look the same in the dark.

Canadeo’s mildly charming sixth knitting yarn (after 2013’s The Silence of the Llamas) finds the Black Sheep knitting group in the quiet town of Plum Harbor, Mass., caught up in events that start with vandalism and morph, once again, into murder. A secret activist group known as the Knit Kats has covered all the disputed parking meters on Main Street with knitted covers, something yarn shop owner Maggie Messina is ambivalent about, since the covers, while beautifully made, have somewhat sinister cat faces. Then Maggie’s assistant, Phoebe Meyers, becomes a suspect in the murder of a young woman after a fiber art show at the nearby college. But the real heart of this book is the weekly knitting group that meets at Maggie’s store to eat, exchange confidences, talk about men, do a little detecting, and, yes, knit. These women may be amateurs, but no one is pulling the wool over their eyes. Agent: Bob Mecoy, Bob Mecoy Literary Agency. (Jan.)
