The Knitting Fairy
Jaime Marsman - 2012
The mystery will have you hooked all the way to the end.__________________________________________________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 either.
