Book and Film Challenge Update

I finished book number 92, Till Death Do Us Purl by Anne Canadeo, a Black Sheep Knitting mystery. Maggie and her friends at the Black Sheep Knitting Shop are involved in another murder mystery. Rebecca, a young woman teacher, is engaged to be married to Jeremy, a promising young scientist at his father’s laboratory. They have had to move their wedding date up and have only two weeks before the wedding. They need the help of the Black Sheep knitters to finish the knitting for their wedding. The women help with the shrugs for the bridesmaids and flower girl, and Maggie herself helps Rebecca who has been making the knitted lace for her wedding gown. With a lot of effort of all concerned, the projects are finished on time and Rebecca and Jeremy have a beautiful wedding.

Only days after the wedding, there is an explosion and fire in the lab at At-Las lab in Jeremy’s lab where he had gone to work on a top secret glue formula before they left on their honeymoon and Jeremy was killed. What a tragedy! In such a short time, the knitters come together again to attend Jeremy’s memorial service.

About three weeks later, the startling news comes that Jeremy’s body has been found strangled in a motel outside of town! He was not killed in the explosion and fire. Rebecca is the prime suspect, as she knew that he was alive and in the motel. He was strangled with the scarf that Rebecca had made for him. But when Rebecca’s apartment is broken into and Maggie’s house is broken into and her car vandalized, the police begin to look elsewhere for the killer. Maggie stumbles across the clue to the identity of the true killer.

Ninety-two down, 33 to go.


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
