Description

A murder in her yarn shop's backyard puts Libby Beckett's holiday plans on thin ice....

The holiday season looks merry and bright for Libby and her friends at Y.A.R.N. The store is expanding for a holiday boom, and she's gathered Collinstown's businesses to decorate a community Christmas tree. Dashing "Gallant Herdsman" Vincenzo Marani arrives to showcase the rare vicuña, whose coat produces the world's most luxurious yarn. It's a perfect yuletide--until Libby's ex-husband, Sterling, turns up in town...and then turns up dead.

The murder unravels Libby's life faster than a hand-knit Christmas stocking. The luxe yarn goes missing, Sterling's domineering family comes to town, and the vicuña attempt an escape. If Libby can't stitch up a solution to the case, she may be trading in her knitting needles for a set of handcuffs.

Review quote

Praise for The Riverbank Knitting Mysteries

"Delightfully clever! As warm and cozy as a handmade sweater. Readers will love Allie Pleiter's new series."--New York Times bestselling author Krista Davis

"Allie Pleiter skillfully knits together endearing characters, a leap-off-the-page setting, and a delightfully perplexing mystery with this debut."--USA Today bestselling author Laura Bradford

"Allie Pleiter's first Riverbank Knitting Mystery has all the elements needed for a successful series, particularly a great hook."--Criminal Element

"Pleiter excels at creating characters you care about, and On Skein of Death is no exception. . . . A well-plotted mystery, clever red herrings, and intriguing layers give the book its focus, and the lovely hint of romance potential will appeal to spark-loving readers like me without alienating mystery purists. I can't wait for the next book!"--Reading Is My Superpower
