Wanted: Cat mum to manage a yarn store, corral two curious cats, all the while being tangled up in murderous mayhem and mystery.
A smart woman would dump her cheating ex, move from the city, and give herself a chance for a well-deserved do-over. A smarter woman – smarter than me, anyway – wouldn’t jump out of that same frying pan and return to Cape Discovery, a seaside village where her family is the nuttiest of all the nut-ball residents.
I’m a former high school counselor, middle-child peacemaker, and current curator of lots of squishy/fuzzy goodness at my granddad’s little yarn store; a temporary assistant until I decide what to do with the rest my life. There’s only one knotty problem to untangle first: the knife sticking out of the most unpopular man in town, and the police detective trying to pin the murder on the donkey – otherwise known as my younger brother.
With a pair mischievous cats determined to be underfoot and a craft group of serial knitters and happy hookers wanting the inside scoop, a girl could lose her mind. And if the killer has their way, maybe even my life….
Tessa Wakefield has her hands full juggling a cozy craft store, her crazy family, and two men who’d rather poke out their eyes than describe themselves as cute, which they totally are. Cute, charismatic, and occasionally on her mind when she’s not stumbling over dead bodies and using her newfound sleuthing skills to track down murderers. Lucky she’s an excellent multi-tasker…because digging beneath Cape Discovery’s surface can unearth secrets that kill.
