Official Selection:

Libby recently opened her dream yarn shop, and is about to host her first big event that could put Y.A.R.N. on the map. Unfortunately, having her celebrity guest murdered before the big baquet wasn't the publicity Libby was hoping for.

What struck me immediately about this book was how passionately Pleiter wrote about knitting, and the vivid way she wrote about color. Libby is just as passionate about knitting as she is about finding justice. 

So often in cozies we see the amateur sleuth and the local police butting heads. It was interesting to see Libby work alongside the local police and share information to solve the crime. - John
