Publisher's Summary

Wanted: cat mum to manage a yarn store, corral two curious cats, all the while being tangled up in murderous mayhem and mystery.

A smart woman would dump her cheating ex, move from the city, and give herself a chance for a well-deserved do-over. A smarter woman - smarter than me, anyway - wouldn’t jump out of that same frying pan and return to Cape Discovery, a seaside village where her family is the nuttiest of all the nutball residents.

I’m a former high school counsellor, middle-child peacemaker, and curator of lots of squishy/fuzzy goodness at my granddad’s little yarn store. The Serial Knitters and Happy Hookers in the store’s Craft for Calmness group have been busy creating booties and baby blankets for a christening fit for a prince. But when I stumble onto the little prince’s fatally poisoned mother, a right royal mess ensues. The kid’s paternity is in question, and I’m tasked to sniff out the baby daddy as a favor for a frenemy - don’t ask. I did, and now the bodies are piling up and a killer just might use my cupcake addiction against me.

Tessa Wakefield has her hands full juggling a cozy craft store, her crazy family, and two men who’d rather poke out their eyes than describe themselves as cute. Which they totally are. Cute, charismatic, and occasionally on her mind when she’s not stumbling over dead bodies and using her newfound sleuthing skills to track down murderers. Lucky she’s an excellent multi-tasker because digging beneath Cape Discovery’s surface can unearth secrets that kill.

Great Book, Wonderful Narration

It's good to be an Audible member. I was able to read/listen to this book for free as an Audible plus member. What a fantastic deal!

This book is terrific. Story keeps your attention and the narration brings it alive. Can't say enough about how much I enjoyed Tracy Drew's characters. I felt like they were people who I wanted to enjoy a cuppa with.

Can't wait to start book two. Already on my library.

Perky and fun series

This is a fun series to listen / read to. The characters & setting develop into a fast pace interesting cozy mystery. Well done Tracey Drew. Thanks to Sarah Mollo-Christensen for a great narration. Her ozzie accent helps place the story in Australia.

I started with book-1 to try this new author (to me) out----which led me to purchase book-2. Now I'm purchasing book 3----I think I'm hooked.
