Needled to Death

Needled to Death by Maggie Sefton is the next book in her knitting mystery series. From the back cover.~

Now that she's been knitting up a storm with the help of her new friends at House of Lambspun, Kelly Flynn can't imagine ever leaving Fort Connor, Colorado. But there's trouble in her adopted hometown-and not just with her new sweater project.

When Kelly volunteers to take a troop of tourists to visit Vickie Claymore's alpaca farm, she discovers Fort Connor isn't as sedate as it seems. Instead of a warm welcome, they find Vickie splayed out on her original hand-woven rug, her blood seeping into the design...

The police jump on the case, but Kelly can't resist doing a little investigative work of her own-even if it means taking a break from the sweater she's been knitting in the round. Because a murderer is lurking in Fort Connor...waiting for the right moment to strike again...

I really enjoyed Needled to Death. Kelly and her friends have the best time getting together each day to knit their latest projects. Kelly again stumbles onto a murder in Fort Connor. Between knitting and new scarf, working at her accounting job, and playing softball, Kelly puts her mind to solving another crime. I really love that each book has directions for a knitting project, as well as a recipe for something mentioned in the story.

I look forward to more books in the knitting mystery series by Maggie Sefton.

I'm really loving this series. It is also making me really want to learn how to knit.

My daughter found this book on a train and gave it to me - I thought it was hilarious. I'm assuming the writer can't knit, as some of the things she writes are very odd - for instance, kelly not noticing she's increased her stitches from 10 to 18, not being able to work out for herself how to change to a different pair of needles *sigh* ah well, each to her own!
