    1. I picked this one up for a challenge where I had to find llamas on a cover. Outside non-fiction, that isn't the easiest thing to do. I don't know much about these animals, although I did find out from this book they're usually sweet and make loyal pets. The title is funny for a cozy, and the quirky artwork works well as an attention grabber. As you've probably guessed, the Cozy theme is "Knitting". What I didn't expect about a "cute cozy" was that the poor Llamas would be put through so much abu [...]


    2. I read this book entirely because of the cover. It caught my eye & at first I thought it might be set in South America (it isn't). I left it on the shelf, but then saw it again and couldn't resist the title and bright, colourful drawing that promised a light, entertaining and maybe funny read. Anne Canadeo's The Silence of the Llama is the 5th book in the Black Sheep Knitting Mystery which follows the adventures of a knitting group centred on Maggie's fibre shop in Safe Harbor (near Boston). [...]


    3. Anne Canadeo brings readers the fifth book in her Black Sheep Knitting Mystery series, The Silence of the Llamas. Canadeo has created a series that will intrigue the mystery enthusiast and soothe the soul of the knitters and crafters. With an eclectic cast of characters and plenty of twists and turns this light cozy mystery has something for many different types of readers. Readers looking for something a little unusual will love all of the llama drama this book has to offer.What I liked:I am a [...]


    4. A married couple that are friends of Dana, a member of the Black Sheep Knitting circle, move into Plum Harbor to raise Llamas and sell fiber arts and supplies. Ben and Ellie Krueger soon find that life isn't so sweet on the farm as they had dreamt.During a 'Welcoming' Fiber Arts festival held by the Kruegers, the llamas come under attack and are physically injured. Shortly thereafter one dies by crime, and when a next farm owner, who is also a vocal political activist, dies, well the entire grou [...]


    5. The Black Sheep Knitters is a group that consists of Maggie Messina, the shop owner, and Lucy, Suzanne, Dana and Phoebe and Ellie. While their love of knitting draws them altogether, they have become great friends, and they use their weekly meetings to knit, gossip and share their lives in general. New comer Ellie's Laughing Llama Farm is the stage for the murders and most of the story.I have not every read any books from this author previously. The book was a simple/easy read that kept me intri [...]


    6. I was highly anticipating this one but it really fell flat for me. I usually like this series but I kept waiting for something big to happen and it never did. Even after the murder (not a spoiler, it says this on the back of the book) it just felt like the story drug on wayyyyy too long. Sorry, Anne Canadeo but this is not your best work. I hope the next one is better (although from the synopsis that I've read online, I'm a little worried. LOL.) The knitting references are always great though! L [...]


    7. Did not like this one bit. I wish I had read another reader's warning about the cruelty to animals that takes place in this book; it made me feel ill and is haunting me. Once I got to the second act of cruelty I was done; have no interest in reading something like that.Thought this would make a nice, easy, fun summer read. It is very simply-written. Oh well.


    8. this was my first Black Sheep knitting mystery and it combined two loves knitting and llamas. It was a fun read with more emphasis on the mystery than the knitting but with enough needlecraft to hook me. I'll be looking for more books in this series.


    9. This is the fifth book in the Black Sheep Knitting series. The knitters visit the opening festival for Ben and Ellie’s llama farm, but are surprised when a prank disrupts the festivities. They find out that there have been a series of mysterious actions at the farm, and when the pranks escalate to real harm, they work together to try to figure out who might be responsible and why they are targeting Ben and Ellie. There are many suspects and potential motives, including development of the land. [...]


    10. A young couple bought a small farm in Plum Harbor and started a new life away from the busy city. This couple intends to raise llamas. The wife - Ellie - has made friends with the knitting shop owner Maggie and her group. Ellie and her husband plan a festival at the farm and in ends in disaster as their herd of llamas is attacked. Vandalism turns into murder and Maggie and her group decide they will investigate the crimes.


    11. Who is causing all the trouble at Laughting Lliams farm? Can Maggie and the girls stop them before they strike again? Love this series



    12. I will give an honest review on the mechanics, but also my personal feelings about the work itself. It was well written, logical, and a soft murder mystery in the vein of "Murder She Wrote" in that there are amateur detectives that solve the case. The characters are believable, everyday people that I could see solving crimes in a rural community. On the mechanics, the nuts and bolts, of plot, setting, characters, rising/falling action, and other items that I learned about reading literature in h [...]


    13. First, a warning for those readers who can’t abide any harm done to animals—there is some of that in this book. The attacks on the animals are not overdone and they mean something in the story, i.e they’re not gratuitous, but they exist.On the whole, this is a good mystery but there are aspects to the construction that I think detract from the story. For a traditional, semi-cozy mystery, the murder is much too long in coming, a bit more than half way in, and then it’s approximately two t [...]


    14. The Black Sheep Knitters consists of Lucy,Dana, Suzanne Phoebe and Maggie Messina, who owns the shop where they all normally meet in every Thursday night. While it was originally their love of knitting that brought them together they have become fast friends. Ellie Krueger and her husband Ben have recently moved to Plum Harbor to run a llama farm called the Laughing Llama farm. When someone shoots the llamas with a paint gun it hard to imagine who would do such a thing. It doesn't take long thou [...]


    15. Ellie and Ben Krueger arrived in Plum Harbor eager to live out their dream—tending a herd of gentle, friendly llamas for fun and profit, on a farm just beyond the village. Their grand opening fiber festival kicks off on a bright note but abruptly ends in malicious mayhem. Knitting shop owner Maggie Messina and her friends soon learn that this is not the first time a vicious visitor has called. Suddenly, vandalism turns to murder—and the Kruegers’ dream descends into a nightmare. The Black [...]


    16. A light story, perhaps not as appealing to me as it could be, because it's the 5th in the series and I haven't read the others. Plus, I kept trying to figure out where it's set I was thinking New York or New Jersey, because I know for a fact that Connecticut has no county government, and I was 99% sure that Massachusetts doesn't have county governments with land use/planning powers - nor do they have "villages" with local government powers either, they have towns. But it turns out that it *is* [...]


    17. Cute and cozy little mystery. Murder and vandalism was rocking the llama farm. Easily explained in the end by a band of knitters


    18. I didn't learn very much about llamas. Research? I am beginning to wonder if all of these craft/mysteries need two people to die/two murders to solve. I do enjoy the relationships between the five main characters in this series and getting to know them better without having to get to know their extended families as well. I hope Ellie will remain in the area and will from time to time join the other knitters. Perhaps some of the other characters such as Angelica Rossi or Mr. Kranowshi will appear [...]


    19. I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This is book five of The Black Sheep Knitting Mystery Series. Sometimes you just need a cozy mystery to snuggle up with on a cold or rainy day. Well, this is certainly a great one! The cast of characters are so great, I can actually picture myself sitting with their knitting circle hanging out. The description of Justin Ridley was just plain creepy and the festival reminded of the many northern craft fairs I’ve attended. Th [...]


    20. The Silence of the Llamas was--ok. Not fantastic, but ok. I enjoyed the crew, as usual, and liked their shared hobby.In this book, though, I noticed that their emails and text messages tend to be redundant: Why are we reading Maggie's email about what just happened when we just read what happened? This, of course, slowed things down.The solution to the mystery was ok-ish, a bit too similar in parts to an earlier Black Sheep mystery.So--not a waste of time, decent comfort reading, but also not ou [...]


    21. This was my first book from this author. While I was happy to go to Google to help appreciate the difference between llamas, alpacas and guanacos I didn't get much else from the story. The characters, all women who enjoyed knitting were otherwise one-dimensional and I didn't know any more about them at the end of the book than I did at the beginning. I caught on to the bad guys early in the book but this didn't really detract from my reading because I began to skim along the chapters at that poi [...]


    22. I got this book as a giveaway and was so excited to start reading it. It was well written and made for easy read with a dash humor thrown in. I thought the "mystery" of the book was wee bit easy to figure out early on so that why I went with my four star rating. I would definitely read another book by this author. So over all well done with this book. Thank you and the person who held drawing for giving me this book.Ps I thought was great to add the recipes and notes that you did at end it alwa [...]


    23. The Black Sheep Knitting group is delighted when Dana's college friend Ellie and husband Ben start a llama farm practically in their back yard. But Ellie complains that some of the neighbors are harassing them, and after the llamas are attacked, she notifies the police. When one of the neighbors dies, she and Ben become leading suspects.


    24. This book brings to light the struggle between development and the preservation of farmland. The characters are believable and the llamas sound adorable. Again several different plot twists that will surprise you.


    25. I'm not into knitting, but I picked this book up for a quarter at a book sale. It required a bit too much suspension of disbelief for me to ever really get into it. Glad to put down and move on to another book.


    26. I love the interaction of the various women friends who get together once a week to knit and catch up on life together. They see each other through various seasons of life and~ usually stumble across a murder they end up solving by book's end. I've enjoyed this entire series so far.


    27. This was a cozy weekend read with a few revealed secrets at the end, though not a page turner kind of mystery. I thought there was a big lack of character development in this particular one: not much happening on the personal fronts of this group of nosy knitters.


    28. I received this book free through good reads first reads. This book was excellent. It started out slow then progressively got better. The way it ended was a shock. If you love shock I would definitely check this book out.


    29. I thought when I started this I had missed something, not enough to make a difference to my enjoyment of this story. This was a good story and it was good to see all the knitters again, now I need to go find the book I missed.
