Molly Pink and her best buds call themselves the Tarzana Hookers because they are in love with crocheting and wish to promote the skill. In case, you aren't aware of it, crocheting uses a hook to turn yarn into lovely creations and it's quicker than knitting although it does use more yarn.

They were able to join other crocheters at booths at the annual SoCal Knit Style Show. Crocheting has never before been permitted at this show and Molly and her friends want to enlighten at least their part of the world on the wonders and beauty of their chosen craft.

Unfortunately the show's organizer, K.D. Kirby (not a popular figure) has been found dead in her tub. Adele, (one of the Tarzana Hookers) is pegged by the police to be the person who threw a plugged in hair dryer into the filled tub where K.D. was taking a bath! Molly starts an investigation to clear Adele's name. The Hookers are sure Adele is innocent but proving it will be tough.

Knot Guilty is well worth a read. Fun with a wealth of references to the lovely yarns and patterns available. I, at one time, did a lot of crocheting and enjoyed it very much. This story brings back memories of my time with a hook and gorgeously colored yarns. As a bonus, recipes and crochet patterns grace the last pages of this cozy.
