In a new Yarn Retreat Mystery from national bestselling author Betty Hechtman, Casey Feldstein is determined to tie up loose ends to solve another murder . . .

"If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend giving it a go. The mystery will delight you, and afterward you'll be itching to start a knitting or crochet project of your own." --Cozy Mystery Book Reviews

After reconnecting with some old college friends on social media, part-time dessert chef and muffin maker Casey Feldstein has gotten herself roped into hosting a knitting retreat for the group. Tangled up in worries over how they'll judge her unconventional life and the rustic atmosphere at Vista Del Mar, she watches in dismay as the women arrive and their old personalities--and old grudges--come trickling to the surface. But Casey discovers these are the least of her problems when one of the women is found dead.

With everyone a suspect--including an old crush of Casey's who's mysteriously been invited to join the retreat--Casey knows she'll have to start stitching together clues to uncover the culprit. And as long-held secrets start emerging, she begins to suspect that each of the women may have had a motive for murder. Casey wants to avoid needling her old friends with accusations, but she knows she'll have to ask some pointed questions if she's going to unravel the clues and catch a killer . . .

Includes a pattern for a fun, easy scarf and a mouthwatering recipe!

This series stars a believable woman who works hard, has real human characters for friends and of course, solves murders. My favorite so far, it is a charming read. Since I am more interested in the characters than trying to solve the mystery, I can't comment on the clues; I enjoy the relationships between adult female friends who are quite like people I know and enjoy. The traditional policeman-boyfriend is a nice guy...nicer than any guy I've ever met-- but what the heck-- I guess that's part of someone's real world. I loved the hours spent reading the book.

I found this to be a truly wonderful book with a surprise ending I did not see coming. Not only did I enjoy the premise of inheriting a home and business but I also identified with the doing multiple things to make ends meet and not quite having it all together while you believe that your friends do. I also identified with doing something you love but not necessarily wanting to broadcast it to everyone because you're afraid of judgement. There was a bit of a love...square (?) going on which was well done. I found the interpersonal relationships to be well developed and quite funny in some instances. Overall, I loved this book and didn't care what number it was in the series. I highly recommend it. Thank you to Beyond the Page Publishing, Betty Hechtman, and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read this book and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.

Good group of characters. I didn't know who the killer was until the end. Kept me guessing.

Inherit the Wool A Yarn Retreat Mystery, #6 by Betty Hechtman Excited to be reading a new author to me and the subject contains knitting. She calls her friend Frank and he fears there's another murder as many have occurred since she moved to Cadbury by the Sea in CA. Feldstein is putting on a yarn retreat reunion. The sorority from college will be coming, all people she knows, The Ballerinas. She had tried a lot of different jobs and really liked it but there was no money to run the company. Her aunt Joan had died and left everything with her.... Love how each get to introduce themselves to one another again and especially love the routine with the balls they do. A murder attempt happens and Carrie is the one who collects the clues and tries to solve the mystery. After the attempts and the women know they want to leave the area but Carrie has some ideas on how to keep them there-because one of them could be the culprit. When pigs fly, LOL. I have seen them in TN. love how it fits into this book. Like how the local cop is also investigating from his angle, not his normal at all! Love that she's a baker! Wow I missed so many clues in the story, had no clue who the culprit was. Like hearing of the magic tricks, so cool! Love knit patterns for the scarf attached at the end. And recipe for muffins! Other works and about the author are included at the end. Really enjoyed this book can't wait to read more. Received this review copy from Beyond the Page Publishing via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, contemporary, knitting, law-enforcement A logical murder mystery populated by quirky illogical characters, most of whom are trying a bit too hard to show how successful they have become in the fourteen years since they were at college together. Take these folks, subtract the murder victim, add in some local characters and cops, finish up with a magic act,and you have a mystery as complex as a knitting pattern. A good read! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Beyond the Page via NetGalley.
