A Crafter Knits a Clue is an enjoyable book. It is well crafted. The detailing is extraordinary. I wouldn’t call it a twisty mystery, but its a simple one and easily executed. Samantha Kane is a fine character but not a very strong influence. Sammy is shown as a girl next door who is too curious about things happening around her. Sammy sticking to the store in memory of her deceased friend and to continue her legacy is heart-touching. The best thing about this book is the way the author Holly Quinn took me through the streets of Heartsford, Wisconsin. I could visualize the whole small town in my mind while reading this book. The Detective Nash Character is nice but I was hoping for little more bonding between Sammy and Nash in the novel. I felt the incidents between Sammy and Nash were not enough. I like the idea of Community Craft encouraging the local talent and selling the crafts created by them. The Spring Fling is fun to read about. The small community of Heartsford helping each other out during crisis is nicely told. Also, the pros and cons of gossip in small towns is also well explained. The three sisters diving into the investigation to bring peace to their small community is impressive. There is quite a bit of mentioning about guilts of different persons in different circumstances through the story and that is thought-provoking.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It is not very intense but easy to read to the eyes and to the mind. I must say again that the detailing is great, from the way a particular character is sitting on the table with a fist supporting her chin, to the character visualizing another character’s explanation, it’s very nice. The perks of reading the book are the crafting guidelines at the end of the book for knitting various types of socks.
This gave me a cozy feeling after my intense last book Atlas Shrugged.
