Yarned & Dangerous by Sadie Hartwell

Josie is only back in town because Uncle Eb needs help.  His leg has been broken in a car accident and his wife died in the accident.  She remembered him as old and crotchety.  He still was.

Kensington Books and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 24th.

Josie's Mom has gone for a cruise, so she's sent to help Eb and close down the yarn shop.  She knows nothing about yarn, can't cook much, and would rather not go.  Too bad!

Her uncle is still crabby.  He also has a war going with his neighbor, who is as old he is.  They snipe at each other, play tricks on each other and pretend they hate each other.  The best news is that the other family has a young man around her age and he can help her get things done.

When she walks in the yarn shop, she's overwhelmed.  She's never seen this much yarn or the varieties of yarn before in her life.  How's she going to liquidate stock?  Since she didn't lock the door behind her, here come the yarn ladies.  They want to buy the shop, buy the stock discounted, or ???

The worst part is when she is beginning her inventory and finds a woman strangled in the back of the shop.  How did she get in the locked building?  Who killed her?

This was a good mystery with a touch of romance and a tale of a young woman becoming quite fond of her old Uncle Eb.  I really enjoyed this read and hope there will be more of this series.
