One for the Hooks

One of the Hooks

Death by drone with an arsenal of seafood shells? That really would be One for the Hooks (eh, books).

The Tarzana Hookers are not what you think. They are a club of crocheters that meet in a local bookstore. Molly is an assistant manager in the bookstore and an active member of the club. Molly is also a fifty-ish widow with two grown sons, an ex-boyfriend and a new plus one.

Sloan is a stager working on a soon-to-be short-time rental home in the Valley. She contacts Molly trying to sell her a group of yarn samples that were found in the house. Soon afterwards, Sloan is killed by a pile of seafood shells dropped on her by a drone. Molly is asked by her ex, who is a local detective, to be on the lookout for clues.

One for the Hooks is a nice mix of family drama, cozy mystery, and romance. It is nice to see a heroine who is not in her thirties still have a love life. The solution to the mystery was impossible to solve until one clue was revealed at the 90% mark. This is also when Molly unmasked the motive and the killer. That didn’t seem quite fair. Hopefully, there was an earlier clue that I missed.

Overall, One for the Hooks was a fun book to read. The ending was a complete and twisty surprise! I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series. 4 stars!

Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
