In Hechtman's diverting fifth cozy featuring Molly Pink and the members of her crochet group, the Tarzana (Calif.) Hookers (after February 2010's A Stitch in Crime), Molly, an event coordinator at Shedd & Royal Books and More, is preparing for the upcoming midnight launch of Caught Under the Mistletoe (about a crocheting vampire) and first public appearance of its pseudonymous author, A.J. Kowalski. No one knows whether Kowalski is a man or a woman. Molly is distracted, however, when she returns from a buying trip to discover crime scene tape at her house and her boyfriend, homicide detective Barry Greenberg, investigating a nasty smell. No human body turns up, but her neighbor, financial adviser Bradley Perkins, is missing and a suspected suicide. Some readers may find the amusing business about Kowalski's Blood and Yarn book series of more interest than what happened to Bradley. (Nov.)
