Book Description, Modified from Back Cover:
Casey Feldstein has her hands full with preparations at the Vista Del Mar hotel on the scenic Monterey Peninsula as another yarn retreat begins. The retreaters will be thrown for a loop this time, learning the trendy art of arm knitting and finger crocheting. But not everyone is enthusiastic about trying something new, and Casey is forced to come up with an alternative project.

Things go from worst to worsted when a travel writer from a neighboring retreat group is found dead in his room among a sea of feathers. When one of the owners of Vista Del Mar pleads for help, Casey gets hooked into the case and must unravel a delicate skein of secrets to catch a killer.

My Review:
A Tangled Yarn is a cozy mystery. It's the fifth book in a series, but you can understand this book without reading the previous ones. This book didn't spoil the previous mysteries.

The main characters were interesting and nice people. Casey asked questions and listened to people talk, but the clues didn't connect together to point to a whodunit but rather hinted at what had happened and why. Casey did figure out whodunit right before whodunit confronts her, and whodunit actually had a good reason for confronting her (rather than just fleeing).

There were no sex scenes. There was a very minor amount of bad language. Overall, it was an interesting mystery.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
