Megan Mcdonald is asked by her nephew Ian for a crochet chess set. They want to play chess in her garden with it when he visits. After Ian is run down by a gang of boys Megan works on the crochet project as a sign of confidence in his recovery. She is already dealing with an early retirement. After 34 years at the same company she is ready to retire. But she is also afraid.
Now she must be there for Ian and her sister, Anne. Meanwhile, a jewel thief is trying to fence his goods and the gang that left Ian in a ditch bleeding wants to finish the job. Can Ian and Ann survive the efforts of the gangsters to kill them? Can Megan complete her crochet chess set? Why would her first few pieces be stolen from her car? She might make a cuter set yet, to fit the setting of her garden.
You, too can make two sets of chess with crochet. The patterns are in my new book. Enjoy the mystery and then make your game!
This book is the first of a series. I hope you enjoy it.
