Blog Tour: Knit, Purl, Die by Anne Canadeo

So, here's yet another blog tour that I'm going to be late for. :-( Knit, Purl, Die was supposed to be reviewed in Brizmus Blogs Books today, but it is unfortunately sitting at the post office waiting for me to pick it up tomorrow. At least, I hope it is - I supposedit could be a different package.

So, as usual, a brief introduction to the book:

Title: Knit, Purl, Die

Author: Anne Canadeo

Summary (from Simon & Schuster): Counting on each other...

Meet the Black Sheep knitters -- five smart, funny
women who love to knit, gossip, and solve crimes.

Gloria Sterling had it all -- money, looks, and a new sexy young husband. So when she's found floating face down in her own swimming pool, shock waves ripple through tiny Plum Harbor. At the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, Maggie Messina and her circle are devastated to lose their dear friend -- a woman as colorful as her fabulous yarn creations.

The police are quick to call it an accident, but sorting out Gloria's final hours leaves too many loose ends to satisfy her friends. The vivacious, fiftysomething cougar had her French manicured tips in more than a few pots, and the threads of some inside deals stashed in her chic knitting tote.

Who was the last person to see Gloria alive on that quiet summer night? Two empty wine glasses suggest she wasn't home alone knitting the entire evening.... The Black Sheep need to know the truth and set out to unravel -- stitch by stitch -- the weighty secrets that pulled poor Gloria under.

About the Author (also from Simon & Schuster): Anne Canadeo lives and knits in Northport, New York. While My Pretty One Knits is her debut novel, and the first in the Black Sheep Knitting Club series.
You can find out more about her here.

I know that knitting books are really popular right now, but the first time I saw a knitting mystery like this is just seemed like such an odd pairing. I hope you enjoy it though when you get a chance to read it.

Oh bummer. I hate it when you don't get the book on time. This sounds ... quirky.

I'm not sure why, because I don't knit, but I've always had a fondness for knitting mysteries. This one sounds interesting - hope it's waiting for you at the post office!

Coming over from the Saturday Network. I hadn't heard of this book but it sounds very cute and fun - for a mystery that is. I love the concept. I love mysteries, so I might have to look for this one.

None for now!
