When bookstore event coordinator Molly Pink stumbles across the dead body of a crochet group's leader, her complicated past with the woman makes her a prime suspect.

But while Molly's fending off a detective with a personal grudge and navigating the pitfalls of crochet group politics, the real killer remains at large. And it's up to her to catch the culprit - before she winds up in a tight knot....

    "Good Book, Clean content for the most part."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hooked on Murder to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its crochet theme, Not too many cuss words, not too much sexual content. One thing that grates at me in books is when authors use the name of God in vain, this one didn't, or didn't very often, so I was able to listen to the whole thing. I listened to the first of a different series and could not even listen the whole way through because of that. It just grates on my ears and makes me flinch. I know that is not everyone's opinion, but this is mine, and I would choose or not choose a book if this kind of thing was mentioned in a review.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator did different voices, Not as seemlessly done as some other readings I've heard, but it did not put me off either. I will definitlely listen to another book by this narrator if the story interests me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This wasn't a particularly amusing book, so I didn't laugh or cry. I listened to it because it is a quick, cosy mystery. It is perfect for what I wanted, something with no stress attached. It didn't scare me, but still made me think, "Who done it"?

    "Disappointing"

    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.

    "Disappointing"

    Weak, one dimensional and abrasive characters. Totally unlikeable. Narrators voice choices were mostly grating and strident.
