Publisher's Summary

Molly Stevenson rather expected her new job at Crabapple Yarns to be deadly boring...but somehow she just didn't expect the "deadly" part to be quite so literal. After all, what could possibly be more sweet and innocent than a yarn store and a bunch of ladies knitting?

As a librarian, by trade and by nature, Molly really ought to have known better. And, worse, she broke the first rule of librarianship - never, ever judge a book by its cover. Sadly, some of us have to learn the hard way. Perhaps that is why Molly didn't exist long as assistant librarian at Springgate Library.

The new job at Crabapple Yarns seemed like the only sensible thing to do at the time - until she could find something better of course. But, working at a yarn store really didn't fit into her life plan.

She never expected to become a knitter.

Molly never expected her sweet little boss to be hiding the fact that she was receiving threats. She never expected to discover a Knitting Fairy. And, she most certainly never expected a Knitting Fairy to try to kill her.

Great writing, robotic narrator

I really enjoyed the wit and humor of this story. I just wish a human being had read it instead of this text to speech app pretending to be a narrator.

Mediocre book, horrible narrator. It was hard to even follow the story due to the narration.

Very Slow

This book wasn't what I expected. I thought I was getting a mystery but this just seems like chick lit. A woman adjusting to new changes in her life. I'm not interested. It was also slow and boring.

Nice Book.....Not the right Narrator

I would like to hear the 2nd book in the series, but not if its this narrator. Too robotic, as others have said. There could easily be some spots to give you a chuckle, but not with this reading. Just not the right narrator for this particular book. She may have other books that fit her style. Do yourself a favor, take time to eye-read this book.

A favorite listen.

From the beginning to the end this book kept my rapt attention. It's a favorite listen while working and doing needlework.

Sweet story

Would you listen to The Knitting Fairy again? Why?

Yes, it is a nice book to knit to. There is a little mystery, a little danger, and lots of talk about knitting and knitters.
