    Another murder solved in small Colorado town

    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!

    fast and fun mystery

    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.

    A Deadly Yarn

    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.

    Very disappointing

    Everything about this book was bad. I never stop reading a book half way through, but this one tempted me everytime I picked it up. If you want a good mystery get a Patricia Cornwell book.

    fun knitting mystery

    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

    Ok

    This mystery was only OK. Every time Kelly was drinking a cup of coffee. Everyone in book was just to sweet. Everyone was two nice to each other. This took away away from the mystery to much.

    Absolutely love this series.

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

    More Coffee please???

    I enjoy Maggie's books - but I do not enjoy the constant references to Edwardo's nectar (coffee) - ARGH! Kelly should switch to water. Oh - and the story is a good fast read.

    Third Time the Charm in the Knitting Mystery Series

    After the first two books in Maggie Sefton's Knitting Mystery series (one of the many "manufactured" series written for Berkley Prime Crime), I approached this book with hesitation. The first, "Knit One, Kill Two," was average at the best, while the second, "Needled to Death," actually slid backward in quality. It was a pleasure to find that this book, while not perfect, showed improvement over the first two.<BR/><BR/>Kelly Flynn is finding herself more and more at home in Fort Connor, and has made many friends among her fellow habitues at the House of Lambspun. She has gone with one of them, Allison, to Santa Fe for a fabric-arts show, and is coming to pick her brief new friend up for a trip to the airport, where Allison will leave to begin her new career in Manhattan. Imagine the surprise and consternation when Kelly finds her dead in her apartment. At first believed to be a suicide, evidence grows to point more toward murder, especially when Kelly and the police learn from her diary what a mess Allison's personal life was.<BR/><BR/>This book has a decent collection of suspects, any of whom could have possessed a reason for doing the dirty. By good footwork and accumulation of evidence and clues, Kelly brings the murderer to a meeting with the police. It's almost tempting to say that the killer can be guessed earlier on than meant, but the last drops of evidence don't prove their guilt conclusively until nearly the final chapter -- at least for the reader; the police would be another matter, as the evidence isn't strong enough to bring an indictment on. So the book finishes with another patented Sefton/Kelly Flynn confrontation scene; this time, Kelly actually has official backup, there as much to witness the killer give themselves away as anything.<BR/><BR/>Again, this book is not perfect; Sefton hasn't produced one of those yet. Kelly hasn't found enough evidence to pin a murder solidly on any of the three killers she's met so far, and that confrontation routine may get old as the series progresses. But "A Deadly Yarn" is more tightly constructed than the previous two outings, and is a more satisfying read in the end. You even have a character or two that might make good red herrings -- I won't say which ones; you'll have to decide for yourself. Still not a book for the ages, such as "The Nine Tailors" or "Murder on the Orient Express," but a good weekender read for the mystery fan and knitter. (Who are often one and the same.)

    Outstanding, intelligent mystery

    Maggie Sefton writes good, clear mysteries. Her style grabs you and pull you in. There are not salacious sex or gruesome, bloody scenes. Intelligent solving saves the day when local detectives miss the clues or when Kelly Flynn has a hunch about something that doesn't feel right about the murder scene. I can't wait for the next installment of murder mysteries involving Kelly Flynn.
