In On the Hook, Molly has to solve the murder of a has-been tv star before she and her friends, Elise and Adele, are implicated in his murder. It was also wonderful to see the Hookers together creating something beautiful for the community. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The Tarzana Hookers are crocheting baby blankets for charity when Molly and the rest of the hookers get involved in a murder investigation involving one of their own. But to the woman's horror, the person raises both of his arms to reveal that they are holding her date's severed head in one hand and the car keys in the other.
The plot makes for a quick and easy read. Freudian interpretation explains the hook as a phallic symbol and its amputation as a symbolic castration. I've been reading this series from the beginning, and each book just keeps getting better. Everything was ready except the weather. She is even more zany than usual with her desire to become a host of a crochet show. That's always great to see in a book. Molly decides that she must find the real murderer before the police learn that the three women were there.
Adele has hired an acting coach to get back into the business and when he ends up dead she is the prime suspect. The characters are well crafted, the plot tight, and plenty of suspects. One of them unknowingly leaves their scarf behind and the polic The Tarzana Hookers gather to embrace a charity project and concentrate on crocheting much needed baby blankets in a short time period. What I continue to love about the series is that the characters are so relatable. We used glue-on number plates from on our first dinghy, and they still looked great when we sold her seven years later. But the author does such a good job of storytelling that new readers like me will have no issue if they decide to read this book as a stand alone.
Plus the paint or marker approach usually needs periodic re-application. But when I took a wrench to what I thought were rusty bolts, they actually released very easily, and once removed, I could see that the threads and body of the bolts were pristine. The steadily paced mystery is well plotted and there are enough twists and turns, and suspects to keep the reader engaged and guessing. As we all know, Adele has a flair for the dramatics and she does not disappoint us in On the Hook bt Betty Hechtman. The mystery was straightforward and the solving it is a cinch. Molly Pink gets coerced into going to a house viewing with Elise and Adele. I was in awe of my own accomplishment.
Well, we currently have a preliminary closing date of January 14 th, 2019. There is a lot going on in this story that keeps it interesting from start to finish. His absolutely stunning score supports the story's tenderness. The Hookers are not just a group that crochets or perish the thought knits, they are like a close-knit family after years of charitable yarn projects and adventures. The reefs are comprised mostly of old concrete structures and have become home to dozens of species of Snapper and Grouper including Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Scamp Grouper, Red Grouper and many, many more! All you need to bring is your snacks and beverages and of course your hats, sunglasses and sun block.
Molly and her crochet friends got involved in another mystery when her friend Adele had wanted to go into a house that Elise was showing for a reason other than seeing the house, nothing illegal. He has extensive knowledge of the local waters and the migration and habits of local fish species from redfish and snook in their mangrove habitat to mahi and king mackerel offshore. Or at least, not a proper house-sized one. Molly must clear her name as her scarf was found at the scene of the crime and she becomes suspect number one. My review is voluntary with honest insights and comments.
From a Grateful Heart: I received this e-arc from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my honest review. In On the Hook, Molly has to solve the murder of a has-been tv star before she and her friends, Elise and Adele, are implicated in his murder. My first granny square was missing a corner, but when I tried again, all four corners were there. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. A house with the same floorplan was already under construction at the highest point on the ridge.
But, it got better towards the end where the characters started taking action. I love the easy engine access our Hunter 376 provides. The Hookers are a tight-knit group, but some of the members harbor secret aspirati The Tarzana Hookers crochet club could come apart at the seams when thwarted ambition, shady ethics, and a puzzling murder converge. A crochet pattern for a baby blanket and scarf are included. Timothy Clark, the dead owner of the house, is also Adele's acting coach. Molly contacts Mason Fields, attorney and another ex, for legal advice and assistance.
