In the first of a new series of fun short novellas, a charity knitting project in a remote Cotswold village – what could possibly go wrong? When that village is Wendlebury Barrow, the setting of the popular Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries, anything might happen – such as the only yarnbombing event ever to include a real explosion.

Fortunately Sophie Sayers is on hand to create order out of the ensuing smoke-filled chaos and to uncover a few surprises along the way.

This gentle, quick read (about 25% the length of a novel) includes favourite characters from the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries and also introduces a new one – the mysterious Ariel Fey, self-appointed protector of sheep and unlikely adversary of the village knitting fraternity.

This first short novella in the new Tales of Wendlebury Barrow series will make you laugh out loud at the antics of this lively village community, touch your heart with poignant matters of friendship, love, and loss, and lift your spirits with a guaranteed happy ending for all concerned.

A gentle, enjoyable read You know that you are in for a treat when in the company of Sophie and Hector – and Ms Young of course. The mystery element to this series is gentle and interesting (nothing alarming or sordid as with many mysteries nowadays) there are even several moments when you can have a quiet chuckle.I’m not sure if it’s a good thing that this particular story has made me dig out my knitting needles and a couple of balls of yarn, nor am I sure that I will ever finish the scarf I started… maybe…

More fine writing. I’m so glad that this short story came out in paperback because we haven’t got a kindle. Top writing, can’t wait for the impending release of the next novels!
