This one was a quick read for me – once I got started it was very hard to put down!

A Crafter Hooks a Killer has three curious ladies, two complex crimes, one disgruntled detective and a delightful doggie.
~The Avid Reader

Fun characters, a great theme, not 1 but 2 mysteries all set in my neck of the woods. Books like this one are what first pulled me into the cozy mystery genre.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

A Crafter Hooks a Killer by Holly Quinn is a marvelous mystery set in a small Wisconsin community filled with crafters, farmers, and a killer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story; it is fresh and welcoming.

Wow, Holly Quinn has written another humdinger of a story with a cold case and a new case colliding and leaving you breathless!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog

. . . it was excellent. The characters are well-written, the action is not too fast, and the clues lead you to one conclusion, but end up in a different direction.
~Author Teresa Watson

There was a good mix of general village life to mystery and I was with Sammy all the way, trying to guess the identity of the perpetrator. I remained in the dark until the very exciting and fulfilling ending.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews

Holly Quinn does an especially good job at capturing the small, Midwestern town atmosphere.
~View from the Birdhouse

With more twists and turns than my current crochet project, I really had no idea how it was all going to come together. . . I was really taken by surprise. Wow.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

. . . this book kept me glued to the pages, not wanting to take a break until all was explained. Craftily written, you’ll also get caught up in this well-knotted tale.

Community Craft proprietor Sammy Kane suspects that a tantalizing thread links the deaths of her best friend and a bestselling author. But can she weave together the clues?

Samantha “Sammy” Kane is settling into her new life in idyllic Heartsford, Wisconsin, running her late friend Kate Allen’s craft shop, Community Craft when one early June day, bestselling crochet author Jane Johnson visits Heartsford. Captivated by Community Craft, Jane devotes a chapter in her new book, Behind the Seams, to the store. Sammy is honored, though satisfaction quickly turns to shock when she finds Jane strangled to death—her cold hands clutching a copy of her most recently published book, with the words “THE END” raggedly scratched into the cover.

Heavens to Etsy! Not only must Sammy contend with the author’s inauspicious demise, she has to untie some knotty details from her own past. It turns out Kate’s death was not what it seemed, and instead somehow hooked to Jane Johnson’s demise. Handsome Detective Liam Nash is on the “skein”, more than happy to see the shop owner again, if less than enamored by her sleuthing interventions. But this was Sammy’s best friend—she has to know.

Fortunately, Sammy has a “lace” in the hole. As a child, she formed the S.H.E. detective team with her cousin, Heidi, and her sister, Ellie. Having already reconstituted their partnership, the S.H.E. team searches for a pattern behind the latest death. As the case starts to unravel, will Sammy and team be able to sidestep Liam quick enough to stitch together the clues?
