In Canadeo’s smooth fourth knitting cozy (after 2010’s A Stitch Before Dying), Maggie Messina, owner of the Black Sheep Knitting Shop in Plum Harbor, Mass., and her close-knit group of friends—Lucy Binger, Dana Haeger, and Suzanne Cavanaugh—agree to help Rebecca Bailey finish knitting Rebecca’s wedding gown. A day after Rebecca’s wedding to Jeremy Lassiter, a scientist at At-Las Technologies, the four friends are stunned to learn that Jeremy was killed in a suspicious fire at his lab. When Rebecca becomes a suspect in Jeremy’s murder, Maggie and her friends look for other possible killers, including Jeremy’s twin brother, his ex-girlfriend, and a former At-Las partner. The gossip and insights the knitters share lead to both danger and a surprising resolution with a late assist from the police. Agent: Bob Mecoy, Creative Books Services. (Mar.)
