A Crochet Mystery
Betty Hechtman
(from Amazon)
The latest novel in the national bestselling Crochet Mystery series.

Molly Pink and her crochet group, the Tarzana Hookers, love an adventure. But when their newest member is accused of turning her wedding into happily-never-after for the groom, Molly’s chance to find the truth hangs by a thread...

When Molly is invited to a major society wedding, she expects some drama but not this much. The bride, the daughter of Molly’s friend Mason, has been planning the nuptials for ages, but at the reception, things go amiss when the groom ends up dancing with the Grim Reaper.

To make matters worse, the bride’s mother is found holding the murder weapon—and, as a reality show star, she’s happy to fuel the media frenzy. Molly agrees to open her home so Thursday, the distraught bride, can have some peace from the paparazzi. But when it’s revealed that she and her groom were on shaky ground, Thursday takes the spotlight as the prime suspect.

Now Molly and the Hookers must quickly stitch together unrelated clues and high-profile suspects—before a killer strikes again…

Betty HechtmanBetty Hechtman was born in Chicago, Illinois and on a particularly eventful weekend graduated college, got married and moved to Los Angeles, California. She has a degree in Fine Arts and has had a variety of professions including being a volunteer farm worker on a kibbutz, Sunday school teacher, waitress, retail sales, editor of a finance company newsletter, telephone operator, associate publicist and freelance writer.

Her love of mysteries started with Nancy Drew and blossomed when she began to read Agatha Christie's books. She has been doing handicrafts since she was a child. It is like a dream come true to be able to mix mystery and yarn craft in her books.
Molly Pink and her crochet group, the Tarzana Hookers, just live for an adventure.  The book has a small amount of mystery.  It is definitely a cozy.  They had a new member who is accused of turning her wedding into a happily-never-after for this groom.  The truth hangs by a slim thread.  The author wrote the mystery with a lot of cozy and a little bit of humor which makes a good combination.
Molly and the Hookers stitch together some unrelated clues and some high profile suspects -- before a killer strikes out again.  The book is so cleverly written with fun- crochet patterns and mystery.  There are also some delicious recipes in the book.  Great all the way around.
I was given a complimentary copy of FOR BETTER OR WORSTED from the author Betty Hechtmen and Night Owl Reviews for my view of the book.   No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
