In Knitted and Knifed, Tessa is recovering from a painful divorce by moving back to her New Zealand hometown. She is running her recently deceased grandmother’s yarn shop. When she finds the town’s new pop-up shop owner dead with a knife in his back, her brother, who is the shop’s sole employee, is the number one suspect. Tessa must find the real killer to save her brother from being unjustly convicted!
What starts out as a relatively straightforward mystery quickly escalates into a challenging puzzle for armchair detectives. The town’s citizens are hiding a bevy of secrets and Tessa is uncovering them all!
If you, like me, love a challenging mystery where the clues are hiding in plain sight, don’t miss this gem of a cozy mystery. 4 stars for Knitted and Knifed!
Thanks to the author and Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

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. 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.
