Collinstown, MD, yarn shop owner, Libby, is bringing vegan yarn artist Julie to her spring arts festival, which she’s hosting as an alternative to the town’s food festival. Known for being an outspoken animal rights activist, Julie draws the ire of area sheep farmers who protest her attendance at the festival. Julie’s sister, with whom she’s on rocky terms, is also attending the food festival as a celebrity chef. Things are tense, but fine until Julie ends up dead on the first night of the festival, and Libby must find the crafty killer. Pleiter’s (On Skein of Death) second installment in the “Riverbank Knitting Mystery” series is a delightful listen with narrator Brittany Presley bringing Libby and all of the other town inhabitants to life.
VERDICT Following the simple recipe of most cozy mysteries, this plays into the tropes while also providing a story with enough murder, humor, and romance to keep listeners engaged.
