Died in the Wool by Peggy Ehrhart is the second book in the cozy A Knit & Nibble Mystery series. Again I will admit that I’m not a knitter but my attraction to this series is it reminds me of my grandmother who did love to knit and bake so with every turn of a page I think of her.

In this second book Pamela is back with her knitting group which includes her good friend and fellow knitter, Bettina. The group had been busy knitting up some aardvarks to sell to benefit the local school. But as t

The second book in the Knot and Kibble series is a good relaxing read. Katrina, the recuse kitten from the last book has only a minor plot in this one. I found it hard to rate and rounded it off to 5 stars but it really is only 4.5 stars. The plot is good but It didn't resonate with me.

Died in the Wool by Peggy Ehrhart is the second novel in A Knit & Nibble Mystery series. Pamela Paterson along with Bettina Fraser have been selling knitted aardvarks at Arborfest all day with the proceeds to benefit the Arborville high school athletic program. During the afternoon, Bettina noticed that two of the little knitted critters have gone missing and, as Pamela removes the canvas from around the table, she finds one of them—on top of a dead body someone stashed under the table.

I love this series!

I waited for this book so long and I wasn't disappointed! I love everything about the series - an entertaining mystery that keeps you reading, the relatable and strong main character, likable friends, a charming setting, wonderful food and recipes !

I can't wait for the next book!

I am new to this series and requested to read it based on the cover. I enjoyed reading this mystery and seeing how the group came together to solve the murder. It was interesting to see how the put together the clues and I will probably go back to read the first one.

I received a copy to read from the publisher, the review is mine.

Pamela Paterson can’t seem to catch a break. While at her town's annual festival, proudly selling her stuffed aardvarks, Pamela happens upon a dead body. The body was found under the Knit and Nibble table. Knit and Nibble is a knitting group that Pamela is a part of. What really stinks for Pamela, and the other members, is that they are suspects in the murder.

The victim is the high school’s history teacher, Randall Jefferson. The twist is that Pamela’s knitting group was planning to use its proc

This was an okay story. I had a difficult time relating to the characters. They didn't have any certain thing that drew me in and I was bored halfway through the story.
Normally I love books of this type, but this one was just not it for me.
I volunteered to read and review an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

Pamela and her friend from the Knit and Nibble Knitting club are selling Aardvarks at the Arborville, New Jersey local festival when a high school teacher is found murdered under their knitting booth. The festival was to raise money for the school and the teacher was a big fan of ending the sports programs to save money. This is book 2 in the Knit and Nibble Knitting Club series and it's a great addition. This should appeal to the fan of crafts series with lots of knitting references and of cour ...more

The plot for the story was good but it did drag in parts. Pamela spent the day selling stuffed aardvarks as a benefit for the school sports. When it is over she finds a Body under the table with a stuffed aardvark sitting on it. The knitting club starts to investigate before another death can appear.

I'm continuing to enjoy Peggy Ehrhart's cozy series for its marvelous sense of fellowship, its knitting, and its delicious food. I also like reading about the articles Pamela edits for the fictional Fiber Crafts magazine; there's always something to learn there.

Ehrhart has created a strong cast with the members of the knitting group, and the subplots involving various characters can be every bit as interesting as the main action of the mystery-- although I couldn't quite believe Pamela could be

Died in the Wool is the second book in Peggy Ehrhart’s Knit & Nibble Mystery series. The writing flows smoothly, but slowly and several things were repeated multiple times. The well-developed characters are likeable, and the interesting mystery kept me guessing until the final reveal. I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series.

I'd give it more like a 2.8; it was competent, I like the main character who is sensible, but the pacing is off. I like the hint of romance, Catrina the cat, Bettina the friend, etc. but it can be very slow. There is a lot of meal preparation, for example. It was a nice book but I didn't rush to pick it back up which is why it took me so long to read it. Will I read another in the series? Quite possibly.

This second book in the series is even better than the first.
I am not usually a fan of "knitting" cozies, but I quite enjoyed this one.
The characters were appealing and the whodunit kept me guessing until the final reveal.
I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Some parts of the story were likable and some were particularly annoying. Unfortunately, the annoying parts outweighed the likable parts. This book has potential, but there are quite a few things that need fixing up.

Pamela Paterson, the main character in the story and the founder of the Knit and Nibble knitting club, is a very nice person. She's calm and level-minded, as befits her age, and she's shy, which makes her really likable. She's also very good with her daughter, Penny.

This delightful new series is already a favorite of mine. The small-town setting of Arborville, NJ, is a short drive into Manhattan. It is the kind of town where many people know each other or get to know of each other at local functions. For example, football coach Brad Striker tells everyone in earshot how Randall Jefferson is an “idiot history teacher” at the May Celebration.
Pamela is an associate editor for a fiber arts magazine, allowing her to work from home. She is also the founder of the

Princess Fuzzypants here: I rather enjoyed the first book of this series with the rather oddball group of folks who get together to knit and nibble. They also get involved in solving crimes. There was a good reason for the group to get involved in the investigation. This time, the depth of involvement seems a bit stretched. Yes, the victim is found under their table at a local fair with one of the aardvarks they had knit as a fundraiser perched on the dead man’s chest. The fact that the town gos ...more

Died in the Wool

by Peggy Ehrhart

Died in the Wool, like the first book in Peggy Ehrhart's Knit and Nibble Mystery Series, has a calmness that gives me pleasure as I read. Although the main character Pamela sometimes follows inadvisable investigative leads like other cozy mysteries’ main characters, neither her pace of life nor her pursuit of justice is frenetic. I sometimes wonder how some main characters manage to maintain a job while trying to solve the mystery and juggle their many personal is

I compared this book to an old tv show called the Snoop Sisters, which I loved. The story revolves around Pamela and Bettina who are neighbors and friends. They also are members of the local knitting group. The knitting group decides to make Aardvarks for the local school program. While cleaning up they find the local history teacher under their table with one of the aardvarks on his chest. I found the storyline held my interest and very descriptive.

This book starts with a sale at Arborfest, in Arborville New Jersey. Pamela Patterson, lives in Arborville. Today, her and her friends from Knit and Nibble are selling knitted Aardvarks. The sale of Aardvarks goes to support the local high school and it's sports program. New coach and all. All does not sit well, and some people just don't like the idea of football over history and school wars are strong. It's not long into reading when the dead body is found. It was a little lack luster of the ...more

Pamela and her knitting group are selling stuffed toy aardvarks--for the high school mascot--at a fair to raise money for school sports, when they find a dead body under their booth. The police don't suspect them, but local gossip is vicious, forcing them to shop out-of-town. So Pamela and best friend Bettina investigate. There's a little development in the friendship between Pamela and her new (single) next-door neighbor, too. So why only two stars? Is it possible for a book to be too nice? Ehr ...more

Ehrhart has kicked it up a bit in this second installment in a cozy series featuring Pamela and her friends (primarily Bettina) who knit and solve mysteries. Don't worry if you haven't read the first one-there's enough back story here to catch you up but not too much for those who read the first one (as I did). This time around, the knitters are determined to find out who killed Randall Jefferson, who might have been a good history teacher but was a polarizing character. And who stuffed him unde ...more

This time, a teacher is found murdered underneath the table at the Arborville NJ town festival assigned to the Knitting Club with one of the knitted Aardvarks on top of him.

This is number 2 in the knit and nibble mystery series book by Peggy Ehrhart. I read the first one and could not wait for the second one.

It is amazing how Pamela Patterson figures out who the killer is before anyone else.

This one was about the football 🏈 team. A high school teacher is killed and they find him under the table at the Arborville festival.

He was an American History teacher not very well liked by many people in town. So there are many suspects to put on the lis

In this second "Knit & Nibble Mystery," the knitting club knits Aardvarks to benefit the local high school. When a body is found under their table at a fundraiser, Pamela and crew are on the trail to determine who commited the crime and the reason why. Even though this is the second in this cozy knit mystery series, jumping into this book didn't leave me confused with characters - appropriate backstory is shared throughout the book.
