A Knit Before Dying
by Sadie Hartwell
There are so many twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, in a good way, until the end. Just when you think you have the killer figured out, Ms. Hartwell throws you a curve. I honestly didn’t see it coming.
Ms. Hartwell blends a old mystery with a new one and cleverly draws the reader into both. I was so impressed with how she connected everything together while giving us so many delightful twists.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The mystery itself was interesting and had plenty of red herrings to keep you guessing. I didn’t see the final twist coming…
A strong continuation of a wonderful cozy series. We get a smattering of flirting and some goofy senior citizen pranks again, as well as a strong mystery plus a bonus cold case.
Rarely do I give a book 5 stars.
It pulls you in and you find yourself traveling along with Josie and her friends as they work, enjoy each others company and solve a mystery or two!
It wasn’t difficult to decide to honor Sadie Hartwell, Josie and the fun residents of Dorsett Falls with my 5 star rating.
~My Reading Journeys
This is a great cozy with a likable cast of characters, and a setting that I absolutely loved.
~The Book’s the Thing
The author expertly combines both history with the present day. It’s done in an intriguing manner.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
This was well written, just like the first book and kept my attention from the very beginning.
~Melina’s Book Blog
I enjoyed A Knit before Dying so much and instantly became a fan of Sadie Hartwell’s Tangled Web series. It is well written, imaginative, and has that perfect blend of small-town setting, likeable characters that you want to spend time with, and a well-crafted mystery.
~The Power of Words
The book is about more than just knitting and yarn. It’s about reaching out, trying new things, and creating new relationships.

A new business might add some much-needed charm to downtown Dorset Falls—and draw tourists to Josie’s yarn shop. But when someone gets murdered, a close-knit community could come undone . . .
Shop owner Josie Blair is finally settling into the pace of living in Dorset Falls, Connecticut. Between running Miss Marple Knits, jumpstarting a blog, and handcrafting items with the help of her knitting pals, Josie’s too preoccupied to worry about her past in New York. And thanks to Lyndon and Harry, the owners of the brand-new antique shop next door, she has another project in her midst—repurposing a box of vintage crocheted doilies adorned with the most curious needlework . . .
But before Josie can formally welcome her neighbors, she discovers Lyndon on the floor of his shop stabbed to death by a rusty old pair of sheep shears. Police have pinned Harry as the killer, but Josie isn’t so sure. Now, she’s lacing up for another homicide investigation—and no eyelet or stitch can go unexamined, lest she herself becomes ensnared in the criminal’s deadly design . . .
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.
