"Hechtman's writing is fun and introspective, and Molly is a likable character." (RT Book Reviews)
I enjoy reading history, fantasy, humor, and science fiction. I recently started an online book club on Facebook. looking for good reads!
A fun story, I really enjoyed the simplicity and creative path of the story.
I love cozy mysteries about people who are crafty. However, I can't say that about this one. The characters were a cliche. A bunch of women getting together to moan and grown about their failed relationships. Of course, the lead character, Molly, had a faithful and loving husband. Now that he is dead, she has a wonderful boyfriend, Barry, who wants commitment. She however wants freedom. The lead detective on the case has feelings for Barry , so, she is doing her best to pin the crime on Molly. It's all a boring cliche. When they are not talking about men or dabbling in the murder mystery, they are creating a rivalry between knitters and crocheters, which is an unnecessary diversion. I couldn't finish this book because it wasn't very interesting. I skipped forward to get past clunky dialogue and got lost. After that happened a couple of times I gave up on the book. I can't recommend it.
