A Crochet Mystery


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…

 This wonderful author has done it again.  Here books have such a real touch to them.  A woman in her prime who's wardrobe consists of lace shawls and khaki pants has two available men on her trail pursuing her. In her bag is always a crochet hook and yarn.    I stop and think, that could be me. The book describes Tarzana, California in a way that I want to visit.  Never been there but would like to. Adel and the crazy Hookers are just downright a hoot and holler when they're at the bookstore.   We have murder at a wedding reception where there are suspects galore.  This makes poor Barry, the detective wonder if he will ever solve this one.  Molly is trying to help but is more in the hindering mode.  She, like us all, have a lot of issues on the table.  She's working on her two pursuers but just wants them to be friends and this makes the competition level rise.  The author wrote another wonderful cozy mystery with characters that you want to get to know.   There are some twists and turns to keep you hopping. This is a light, feel good read and you can't help but love Molly Pink.

I was given a complimentary copy of FOR BETTER OR WORSTED from the author, Betty Hechtman and NightOwlReviews for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.

Betty Hechtman Betty 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.
