I love to read when I’m not playing with yarn. A while back, a friend of mine had mentioned on Facebook about some books she found. They are murder mysteries, and I love murder mysteries, but these have a bit of a twist! The main character is a crocheter!!

The name of the book is Hooked on Murder by Betty Hechtman. The story itself is a light and entertaining murder mystery. Molly Pink works in a book store where a local crochet group meets regularly. Of course, she suddenly finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time and ends up being a suspect in a murder. She loves to cook (and eat) and with all the stress of the events around her decides that if crocheting helps relax the ladies in the crochet club, it might work for her. Not to mention keeping her hands busy with an activity other than food might help her waistline as well. Throughout the story we get to know the ladies of this club and their own crochet styles.

The most unique and awesome feature of this book comes at the end. Not only do we find out who did it, we are given a recipe AND a crochet pattern! I mean, how cool is that! Are you ready for more good news? This is the first in a whole series. I purchased a few of the set on Amazon for my Kindle app. They are also available in paperback. If I find more time to read, I might invest in the whole set.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable story with fun surprises included in it. I can relate to Molly myself in many ways, I love to eat (don't we all?) and I am a self-taught crocheter. If you are looking for a delightful, fun and relaxing read I highly recommend this book.
