Life is getting strange in Twombly, Illinois.

Jairus Twombly’s familial intuition is faltering and his new personal assistant seems to be trying to replace his wife, Amy.

On the Twombly College campus, someone is breaking into the dorm rooms of female students, leaving things instead of taking things: red colored objects including a red golf ball, a red ribbon, and a tiny red stuffed dog.

Things heat up for Emory Crawford and her chemist and forensic scientist husband, Dr. Jebbin Crawford, when a recipient of some of the red objects goes missing and Twombly’s personal assistant turns up dead with Amy Twombly’s elegant Bloodwood crochet hook in her eye.

Emory, along with the Twomblys’ daughter, Madison, once more turns to her amateur detective skills and intuition to solve small-town mysteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy mystery at its best I didn't think cozies could get any better after I read the first Emory Crawford book, but author Pearl R. Meaker has outdone herself with this delightful second installment in the series. No spoilers - just pick up a copy and enjoy!
