Duration: 9 hours 56 minutes
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, but 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, but she also has to untie some knotty details from her own past. It turns out Kate's death was not what it seemed and instead was 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?
