Review of Wishful Witness

Wishful Witness

The Witness Tree Series, Book #13

Tonya Kappes

5 Stars


The Stitchin’ Post yarn shop is central gossip in all of Linden Falls. Well, at least the Linden Falls Knitters like to keep everyone aware of all the comings and goings of the quaint Vermont town.

There’s no doubt the old King Building being renovated for a new artesian center is going to bring more business to the small town.

Or so you’d think.

Things take a turn when the new center starts to hurt the local small business owner’s bottom line, making several suspects after a vocal local turns up dead.

No amount of wishes on the Wishing Tree is going to bring him back to life, but finding the killer will bring life back to the town.

When the Linden Falls Knitters’ gossip turns up some real clues that unravel more clues as they put their crafty skills to work as they work together to figure out who thought they were knitting together the perfect murder.

The characters are well rounded and  developed. Cheryl owns the Stichin’ Post Yarn Shop and she is enjoying the  town of Linden Falls. When someone is killed, she decides to try to find the killer. She will have the help of her knitters and friends.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  I was able to understand the importance of the Wishing Tree for all the citizens of Linden Falls.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.  The mystery was not easily solved, which is how I like my mysteries.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well rounded cozy mystery.  Do yourself a favor and read it for yourself.

I volunteered to review an ARC of this book and I have given my honest review.
