“A tale of murder and intrigue that will ensnare knitters and non-knitters alike. I couldn’t put it down.”—Barbara Ross, author of Musseled Out
Time has not been kind to sleepy Dorset Falls, Connecticut, where an erstwhile resident is hoping to bring a tattered yarn shop back to life—but with a murderer on the loose, the whole town is in knots…

Josie Blair left Dorset Falls twelve years ago in hopes of making it big in New York City. But after earning an overpriced master’s degree and getting fired by a temperamental designer, she finds herself heading back to her hometown. Her great-uncle was injured in a car accident, and newly unemployed Josie is the only person available to take care of him. Uncle Eb’s wife didn’t survive the crash, so Josie is also tasked with selling the contents of her Aunt Cora’s yarn shop. But the needling ladies of the Charity Knitters Association pose a far bigger challenge than a shop full of scattered skeins…

Miss Marple Knits is one of the few businesses still open in the dreary downtown. Josie can’t imagine how it stayed open for so long, yet something about the cozy, resilient little shop appeals to her. But when one of the town’s most persnickety knitters turns up dead in a pile of cashmere yarn, Josie realizes there’s something truly twisted lurking beneath the town’s decaying fa├žade…


My Review
While Dorset Falls, CT. is not Mayberry, time seems to have forgotten it. Not much has changed over the years. While it may be a hotbed for gossip and friendly rivalries, even pranks, it is not full of major crimes, especially not murder.

A good mystery that pulled me in, made me care about the characters, and held my interest from page one. After Josie escaped, after high school, she never gave any thought to returning or even keeping in touch.
When her mother's uncle was injured in the car accident that killed his recent bride, no one else is available to care for great uncle Eb. Josie arrives unprepared for the task ahead of her.

A combination of small town romance, senior citizens gone wild, a coming to realization (rather than age) and of course murder and deception, this is a delightful mix.

I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

Only Wheat Not White

Only Wheat not White
by Varsha Dixit

GENRE: Contemporary  Romance

What if following your heart means failing your family?
Eila Sood leaves India for the U.S.,  hoping to unite her family and mend fences with her estranged older sister. She soon learns that her sister’s intercultural marriage, which outraged their parents, has hit rock bottom. 
To help pay the bills, Eila accepts an accounting job at a strip club, working for the fascinating yet infuriating Brett Wright. 
As their friendship and mutual desire builds, Eila chooses keeping family peace 
over following her heart. After Brett misinterprets her fears and accuses Eila of prejudice, his ex-girlfriend steps in to offer solace. Eila realizes that whichever choice she makes will rip her life apart. 
What will Eila choose? Love of her life or a life ruled by tradition? Fall in love with love, in this steamy saga from a best selling romance author.


Miserable, Eila bobbed her head not looking at Brett.
Walking away from you again is killing me.
For her part, Eila began a new phase of her life with the strictest of rules.

Rule number 1: Always take big portions of dessert after dinner. This will eradicate the craving for comfort food later when you are up the whole night.

Rule number 2: Do not look at couples. Better still, glare at them or imagine them as incestuous siblings. Yuck!

Rule number 3: In public, as in with anyone other than yourself, keep your lips stretched and show teeth.

Rule number 4: Thanks to Rule number 3, always keep lip-gloss handy, for dry lips are painful to stretch.
Also, horde ice packs and tea bags for under the eyes dark circles.

Rule number 5: Avoid anything that begins with the letter B, be it bread, biscuits, baseball or bayonets. Also make sure to personally shred napkins, pages, office memos and toilet paper filled with doodles of HIS name.

Rule number 6: Say NO to Italian food.

Rule number 7: In the near future – we are talking about the next twenty years – try and reduce the number of times you view HIS social networking page, which has not been updated for over ninety days.

Rule number 8: Seriously, only read the bestselling books in horror and self-help genres. The former will help you kill time by making you sweat, shake and fear your own reflection, thereby distracting you from HIS thoughts.
And the latter will help you fall asleep faster than any over-the-counter sleeping pills.

Rule number 9: Remember you are not a teenager, so you are too old to hate your parents.

Rule number 10: Always remember to breathe in and out and put one foot in the front of the other.

INTERVIEW with Varsha Dixit      

Q: What is something you’ve lied about?        

A: I try not to lie. However when someone asks me to comment on something they wrote I always say its awesome and they should keep at it. For writers especially new one can be sensitive.

Q: Who is the last person you hugged?

A: Probably my husband because he is so huggable.

Q: What are you reading now?

A: ‘The Girl On The Train’ by Paula Hawkins

Q: How do you come up with the titles to your books?

A: They usually come to me when I’m preoccupied doing something else. For e.g. the title of my debut best seller, Right Fit Wrong Shoe came to me when I was driving back from my daughter’s school and my sandal broke.
Similarly the title of Only Wheat Not White came to me when I was buying bread. I run the titles past my girl friends and a few others.  Then I go with the majority.

Q: Share your dream cast for your book.

A: I can see Priyanka Chopra as Eila and Chris Pines as Brett.

debut book, Right Fit Wrong Shoe was a national bestseller for the year 2010. Varsha was a

Book Blurb

Pop star Abby Murphy is living every girl’s dream. She has fame, fortune, and a handsome boyfriend, a guitar player named Sean. That changes the night she finds him in the arms of another woman. Hurt and betrayed, Abby ends their relationship. But Sean won’t accept the breakup, and she soon learns that he’s had a hidden agenda all along. Overnight, Sean transforms from loving boyfriend to dangerous adversary, and Abby no longer knows who she can trust among her friends and family. Abby turns to her bodyguard, Danny Nucci, a man who will do everything in his power to keep her safe. But when Abby realizes her feelings for Danny run much deeper than she thought, she refuses to give in to her attraction in order to preserve her new found independence as well as protect Danny from Sean’s machinations. When Abby finally finds the strength to reclaim her life and acknowledge her growing love for Danny, will she be able to let him in? And will Danny be able to overcome his own demons to be the man she needs him to be? Or will she be forced to let him go forever?


“Come on sleepyhead; you have to wake up,” he coaxed. “Go away.” She gathered the blanket closer to her body. “I can’t. It’s time to get up. Let’s go.” He pulled at the blanket and saw that she was only wearing the T-shirt he gave her last night. He stared. Her legs were smooth and sexy, and there was a hint of her purple lace panties peeking out. Danny threw the blanket over Abby and stood quickly. He worked for Abby. He didn’t need images of her half naked in his brain. He walked behind the chair. Distance was a must right now. His phone alarm sang “Reveille” and instead of shutting it off, he increased the volume and placed it by Abby’s ear. She jumped, causing the ottoman to shift forward. Danny laughed at her expression but stopped when she lost her balance and fell to the floor. Like a scene from a sitcom, she landed on her ass, with her legs up in the air. Abby quickly covered herself with the blanket. “Are you okay?” he asked. “Screw you, Nucci.” She looked up at him with narrowed eyes. “Now help me up, asshole.” Danny helped her stand, mindful of her bruised arm. The blanket fell to the floor, leaving Abby in his old New York Yankees T-shirt. Even though he knew what to expect this time, the sight was too much to ignore. He tried to avert his eyes but failed. Abby laughed and walked slowly into the bedroom, shaking her sexy ass. “I’m gonna grab a quick shower. Can you get my suitcase or do you have another one of these I could wear?” Abby flipped up the end of Danny’s shirt, giving Danny an eye full. “I’ll get your clothes.” Danny sighed and looked up at the ceiling. He was clearly off his game. “Thanks.” Abby winked and laughed even louder. She closed the door and left him standing in the living room with his mouth hanging open. Holy shit. His mind raced with all the things he wanted to do to her, and he was thankful for the reprieve. He grabbed the keycard to Abby’s room and left to go get her things.
