Suzanne Cavanaugh has just about had it with her office rival at Prestige Properties. It's bad enough that Liza Devereaux is constantly needling her at work, but when she shows up at one of Suzanne's open houses to poach potential buyers, it's the last straw. No one in the office fails to hear the two snarling at each other.

When Liza is later found dead in her office cubicle-poisoned by a diet shake-Suzanne becomes the prime suspect. It's soon discovered, though, that Liza had double-crossed so many around town and stashed their dark secrets in her designer handbags that anyone could be the culprit.

The Black Sheep Knitters have no doubt their friend has been framed-but they need to prove it. Stirred to action, they get together to catch a sneaky killer who's trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes . . .
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Canadeo's charming 10th Black Sheep and Company mystery (after 2017's Knit to Kill) finds the knitting ladies of Plum Harbor, Mass., defending one of their own when realtor Suzanne Cavanaugh becomes the primary suspect in the poisoning murder of Liza Devereaux, her arch competitor at Prestige Properties. The strikes against Suzanne mount quickly: her very public attack on Liza shortly before her rival's murder, her discovery of the body in Liza's cubicle after office hours, and incriminating evidence later unearthed by the police. The knitters-Phoebe Meyers, Dana Haeger, Lucy Binger, and Maggie Messina-suspect that their friend has been framed. Since many others had reason to wish Liza dead, the women have lots of people to interview in their quest to identify the real killer. Relatable characters and amusing commentary (at one point, Dana refers to Liza as the female Lord Voldemort, e.g. the "Dark Lord-ess") show why Canadeo is so popular with cozy readers.
