Overview

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...

Book 3 is as good and fun as the first two. Our heroine and her friends get involved with murder and solve it by sleuthing with unofficial help from the police. As always, knitting and food are involved, as well as friendship. This is a feel-good series that I am glad I found!

This book was so good I bought the whole set, started knitting again and got the gals in my office reading the series.

A Deadly Yarn continues with the adventures of Kelly Flynn in Colorado, as she continues to fall in love with the mountain lifestyle and scenery. Her knitting friends are there as she works out the clues and does some investigating into the death of a friend. You don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, but they do give more background on the people and how they got into these situations, so read them if you can. Maggie Sefton does a wonderful job of describing the yarn shop, and you can even learn some things about knitting (and fabric art and blueberry pie). The book moves along quickly and is fun to read, and there are a nice variety of personalities to enjoy.

I have enjoyed all in this series and pass them on to a friend who also knits and she can't put them down until she has finished them.

Easy to read, I can usually figure out who did it in the first few chapters, this series keeps me in the dark until the last. I gave them to my daughter who does not knit and she could not put them down. N0 sex, romance yes sex no.

Visiting Santa Fe, House of Lambspun knitters Kelly Flynn and Megan admire the work of local artist and friend Allison DuBois who won a well deserved award as the Southwest designer Institute¿s Wearable Fiber Artist of the Year. Allison, who never sleeps, produces highly regarded ¿wearable art¿. Allison informs her friends that she is heading to New York as an apprentice at a designer's studio who also arranges an apartment for the newcomer. --- Kelly, Megan and Allison return to Fort Connor, Colorado after the award gala. Megan returns a cell phone to Allison only to find the artist dead. Megan is shook up so Kelly calls Fort Connor Police Lieutenant Morrison who investigated the death of her Aunt Helen. When the only thing missing is beads Allison picked up in New Mexico, the police assume it is an accidental death due to an overdose of sleeping pills. Though she needs to get back to her CPA practice in DC and should heed Morrison¿s pointed stay out of it dictatorial direction, Kelly believes a homicide occurred and begins to investigate Allison's recent lifestyle involving three not good for her males with at least one mostly likely deadly. --- The third knitting mystery (see KNIT ONE, KILL TWO and NEEDLED TO DEATH), is a fun artistic amateur sleuth tale starring likable characters who make Fort Connor, at least the House of Lambspun knitting club members, eccentric but amiable. The whodunit is well crafted as Kelly investigates one stitch at a time Allison¿s recent destructive social life and the three suspects that surface. Though doubtful once again that the CPA knitter would make inquiries, fans will not care as Maggie Sefton provides a delightful mystery. --- Harriet Klausner

I love this series. I love the main character Kelly and the story line is great. lol, I'm an accountant and I love to crochet so there might be a slight bias :-P but the stories are great regardless. I have noticed a few spelling errors and one word was so bad that even the nook dictionary couldn't figure out what it was... but I got past it :-P

Just a thought about the character Megan: Foul language is not in her shy personality. It's actually a conflict within the story.
