Striped and Strangled by Tracey Drew Series: Knitty Kitty Mystery #4 on August 5th 2021 Genres: Cozy Mystery Pages: 214 Format: eBook Source: My Kindle Buy on Amazon Goodreads When our town’s resident fortune-teller fails to predict her own demise, courtesy of a dog leash wrapped around her throat, I once again find myself in a pickle.

I’m a high school counsellor turned new owner of Unraveled, my granddad’s yarn store in town. More exciting than a delivery of rainbow colored wool is the news of movie location scouts in the area, though not everyone believes all publicity is good publicity. […]
