Molly Pink is on cloud nine! The new cable talk show, “Creating with Crochet,” is going to film an episode at the bookstore, Shedd & Royal Books and More where she works. Molly’s crochet club, the Tarzana Hookers, will be featured, and the TV host, Rory Graham, is to work with them making a bracelet project. Besides filming for the show, they also hope that the event will draw bookshop customers over to the yarn section of the store.

One of the Hookers, Connie Richards, is electrocuted while walking on wet grass. Her companion, Marianne Freeman, is on the hook as a suspect, but Molly is quick to come to the defense of one of her club members and sets out to find out what really happened to Connie and why.

This is a comfortable and well-paced mystery. The characters have been well developed in this long-running series. There is more than a little humor to be found and romance is alive and well, as is the case in most small towns. Even towns with the periodic murder and mayhem.

If you’ve read other books in this series, you will love this new one. And if the series is new to you, this is fine as a stand-alone read, but you’ll likely want to play catch up with the previous dozen books.
