Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

When womanizing Derek Cooper, a Fort Collins, Colo., rancher, is killed by a blow to the head near the start of Sefton's entertaining if flawed fourth knitting mystery (after 2006's A Deadly Yarn), her first in hardcover, for once it looks as if knitter-cum-accountant-cum-sleuth Kelly Flynn, who doesn't know the deceased, won't get involved. But it turns out that one of Kelly's pals is close friends with a prime suspect, Cooper's ex, and Kelly offers her detecting skills in an attempt to track down the real killer. Readers will enjoy visiting with Kelly and her knitting buddies, who, in their carefree way, resemble the cast of Friends. Unfortunately, awkward dialogue, such as a conversation about whether Kelly is comfortable kissing her boyfriend, strikes a false note. Still, knitting devotees will enjoy this crafty cozy. (May)

    Another murder solved

    Book 4 is the best so far! The main characters have been developed and now a few surprises are showing up. Our heroine is moving along nicely with her knitting and with her adjustment to Colorado. And gets thrown right into the middle of another murder! Knitting needles to the rescue--murder solved! THe next question is "Will she or won't she finally get her Alpaca farm?" I can hardly wait to get book #5! Great series!

    Enjoyable

    After a stress filled day at work I enjoyed reading this series of books to relax and unwind for an evening. Maggie Sefton's knitting mystery series brings the reader into an world totally different and separate from my world and I do get a new knitting pattern and recipe. Fun!

    Getting to be a great series!

    I have complained about the speed at which these stories move but this one is great!! I don't know if I am getting used to the writing style or if they are different but I really love this book in the series. The story is great and I wasn't sure who the murderer was until the very end.

    Killer Stitch

    I'm a knitter and this just doesn't rate with other fictional knitting books. It was a slow read, not very exciting and very predictable.

    Enjoyable even if you don't knit

    This is a fun book to read just to escape and enjoy a few hours away from everything. You will enjoy it even more when you knit and realize that there really is a real store and restaurant

    Fun Read

    The story line was simple but fun...the characters seemed real and full of life. This one makes for a great lazy weekend read.

    Enjoy and then pick up your needles.

    A Killer Stitch

    I have read all the first books in this series of the Knitting Mystery. This particular book was a little slow, and kept repeating itself. I think the first books were best.

    Another HIT

    I love this series. Entertaining but light enough to not HAVE to have set aside time to read it. I wait for them to arrive and then pretty much read it cover to cover as quick as I can. My 13yo daughter has even started to enjoy them. We look forward to each new arrival. Great characters. Great talk of the needle arts and woo hoo. Got to love the dog! LOL

    A Thrill Ride

    What a great sequel in the Knitting mystery books. The way she integrates the characters makes you fell like you are there. Time flies when you are reading these books.Can't wait to the next one.

    Best Yet in Knitting Series

    I just finished A Killer Stitch and it is very well written and the best in Maggie Sefton's knitting series! Kelly and Steve's relationship is really growing and the mystery part of the book has lots of twists and turns. The best news is the ending of the book which definitely signals another book in the series!!

    fun cozy

    In Fort Connor, Colorado, someone kills rakish alpaca rancher Derek Cooper with a blow to his head on his spread. The deceased was seeing House of Lampspuin instructor Lucy Adair, who is stunned by her loss. Also grieving is Diane, a friend of another instructor, who had a heated romance with the 'love 'em and leave 'em' Cooper. --- House of Lambspun knitter Kelly Flynn, curious that the local paper mentioned a homicide has no plans to investigate this DEADLY YARN although she has successfully done so three times before since leaving DC for Fort Connor nine months ago to attend her beloved aunt¿s funeral. However, when she learns of the connection to the House of Lambspun, Kelly finds an excuse to get involved if only to prove the innocence of the instructor and of the friend of another instructor over the objection of her steady date Steve. --- Interestingly the amateur sleuthing reads smoother than the kiss and tell locker room chatter amidst the knitters, as the former feels tightly stitched while the latter seems awkward sewed for this age group of obvious pals. The inquiries are fun to follow as Kelly uncovers clues one stitch at a time. Cozy fans will appreciate this fine knitting whodunit while newcomers will seek the previous Knitting Mystery patterns (see KNIT ONE, KILL TWO and NEEDLED TO DEATH). --- Harriet Klausner
