3 out of 5 stars
I would like to thank Kensington Books for providing me with a free electronic ARC of this book, via Netgalley. Any reviews I give are done obligation free, and are unpaid… well, unless you count getting this book for free… but we won’t go there. 😉
‘Knot My Sister’s Keeper’ is book six in ‘A Quilting Mystery’ series and a book I had been hanging out for and was so pleased to get a chance to read. I love this series, have done so from book one – ‘Forget me Knot’ and was not disappointed when I read it.
I will say I found ‘Knot My Sister’s Keeper’ a little different to the other books in the series as there wasn’t as much quilting as there was sleuthing… but the imbalance was minimal and I almost feel like I’m just being a whinger to mention it! 😀 Still, there was a feel and undertone to this book that, for me, had it not seem the same as the other books in the series… it was as if the series went off tangent a little. But in all honesty I don’t think it did REALLY go off tangent as the questions sought – and answered – are ones that have been rattling around in the series all along. Maybe it was just the introduction to such a brash new character that did it? It’s not that I didn’t enjoy Giselle. I don’t know… There was just a feel of slight difference to this book that set it apart from the others in the series. Not in a bad way, please don’t think that at all. Just in a way that… well, I guess it could be a new key stone to expanding the series even further. And I would never complain about that! 🙂
Would I recommend this book to others?
Yes I would, especially those who have read the other five books in this series. And if you haven’t – go read them and then read this one. And tell me if I am wrong about the feel of the book. 🙂
Would I buy this book for myself?
Of course! I mean, on Amazon, eBook prices have gone through the roof and I look at the cost of ANY eBook there now and go pale. I understand paper books costing more for the print run, but eBooks? So when I see that ‘Knot my Sister’s Keeper’ and the other books in this series are still being sold at a sensible price – of course I will keep buying and enjoying them. It is a good series at a decent price. What more could this crafty cosy crime loving lady want?
In summary: I felt the book was a little different to the others in the series, but still just as enjoyable and highly recommendable.
