Yarned and Dangerous
by Sadie Hartwell
A great little town you will fall in love with and some interesting characters.
~Bab’s Book Bistro
A combination of small town romance, senior citizens gone wild, a coming to realization (rather than age) and of course murder and deception, this is a delightful mix.
I was captivated by this book from the very beginning. It is very well written and it is filled with some great characters, some are pretty cantankerous and eccentric, but that makes the book fun.
~Melina’s Book Blog
The story is very well written, and hard to put down once you start reading it.
This mystery was well-written and complex and I just love how Ms. Hartwell did an amazing job bringing these characters to life.
With the twists, turns, and the control of a master she has written a story that is very hard to put down. It has a very comfortable flow and evolves at a perfect pace.

Oh what a tangle Josie has inadvertently knitted herself into!
~Mallory Heart Reviews
Hartwell writes with both humor and grit providing us a well rounded mystery filled with interesting characters in a town meant for a comeback.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
This whodunit was a fantastic read…You will be hooked from the start.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Very well written with an excellent plot, I found myself guessing, unsuccessfully through the story, and was still unsure until the reveal.
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
Everything about this story. . . especially Sadie Hartwell’s writing, really make this cozy mystery stand out from the rest.
~The Girl with Book Lungs
I sat down, planning to only read a chapter, maybe two, and the next thing I knew I was half way through the book. It just had a flow that kept me engrossed in the story.
~Musings and Ramblings
The author has given readers an excellent beginning to a great new cozy series. She’s given cozy lovers everything they could want – a strong amateur sleuth, mystery and even a bit of humor woven through the story.
~ Socrates’ Book Reviews…
The author builds the mystery slowly, craftily drawing the reader in as she introduces us to Josie, Uncle Eb and the other inhabitants of Dorset Falls. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing.
I loved this book! As soon as I started reading this one, I could not put it down. The plot hooks me from the start.
Yarned and Dangerous
(A Tangled Web Mystery)
Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: Kensington (November 24, 2015)
Time has not been kind to sleepy Dorset Falls, Connecticut, where an erstwhile resident is hoping to bring a tattered yarn shop back to life—but with a murderer on the loose, the whole town is in knots…
Josie Blair left Dorset Falls twelve years ago in hopes of making it big in New York City. But after earning an overpriced master’s degree and getting fired by a temperamental designer, she finds herself heading back to her hometown. Her great-uncle was injured in a car accident, and newly unemployed Josie is the only person available to take care of him. Uncle Eb’s wife didn’t survive the crash, so Josie is also tasked with selling the contents of her Aunt Cora’s yarn shop. But the needling ladies of the Charity Knitters Association pose a far bigger challenge than a shop full of scattered skeins…
Miss Marple Knits is one of the few businesses still open in the dreary downtown. Josie can’t imagine how it stayed open for so long, yet something about the cozy, resilient little shop appeals to her. But when one of the town’s most persnickety knitters turns up dead in a pile of cashmere yarn, Josie realizes there’s something truly twisted lurking beneath the town’s decaying façade…
INCLUDES ORIGINAL KNITTING PATTERNS!
Sadie Hartwell grew up near the Canadian border in northern New York State, where it’s cold, dark, and snowy almost half the year—a perfect environment for nurturing a simultaneous love of mystery fiction and needlework. She attended St. Lawrence University, graduating with a degree in history, and has worked as a waitress, handbag designer/manufacturer, paralegal, and copy editor before turning to writing full time. Now she gets to play with yarn and make up stories whenever she wants, and wishes everyone had a job as much fun as hers.
