A Deadly Yarn

A Deadly Yarn is the next book in Maggie Sefton's A Knitting Mystery series. From the back cover.~

Kelly Flynn's finally feeling at home in Fort Connor, Colorado-especially when she's with her knitting buddies at House of Lambspun. But her friend Allison is ready to leave town-until someone cancels her trip, permanently...

Kelly and Megan could not be happier for their friend Allison Dubois-a young, talented, up-and-coming artist. Invited by a designer to join her New York studio, Allison is about to embark on a new life. But when Kelly and Megan arrive at Allison's apartment to drive her to the airport, they find her dead on the floor, apparently from an overdose of sleeping pills. The police suspect suicide, but Kelly and Megan aren't convinced.

Soon Kelly discovers that while Allison's career was on the fast-track, her social life was a mess. A bad news boyfriend, a jealous design student, and a mysterious man named Brian are all prime suspects in Kelly's book. Now it's up to Kelly and her crafty friends from the House of Lambspun to unravel this tightly stitched puzzle...

Sefton gives the reader a fast-paced fun mystery. Kelly and her friends are becoming experts at solving mysteries that involve their friends and family. Sefton also gives the reader more insight into Kelly and her friends lives with each new book. Not only do you get a great mystery in Sefton's books, but there is always directions for at least one knitting project, as well as one or two recipes.

I like that I normally can figure out the who-done-it before the end of the story and look forward to more books in this series.
