Overview

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for the knitters of Fort Connor, Colorado, who are furiously working on their holiday projects. And it’s not a stitch too soon, because some unfortunate resident will be feeling a deadly chill instead of holiday cheer…

This Yuletide, Kelly Flynn and friends are helping the town's librarian, Juliet, teach children how to knit. Juliet has fallen in love—but just as she finds happiness, death finds her, facedown in her Christmas cape. Suspicion falls on a newcomer, a widow with a puzzling past, who—some believe—was sweet on Juliet's boyfriend. But Kelly and her knitting crew aren't convinced. It's up to them to find a killer—before someone else gets fleeced.

“A perfect read…when snuggling down after the turkey dinner has been devoured.” –Mystery Books News

Another delightful installment in this knitting mystery series. A number of new characters are introduced and those previously included are further developed, rather well. Am looking forward to the next book in the series: "Dropped Dead Stitch".

Kelly Flynn and her friends who congregate at the House of Lambspun knitting shop welcome newcomer Claudia Miller to their circle. Thrice-widowed Claudia appears to have husband #4 on the string, but has competition for his affections from town librarian Juliet. When Juliet is killed in a hit-and-run accident, all the evidence points to Claudia. Is Claudia who she seems to be around the members of the knitting group? Or has she deceived them all? Kelly has successfully avoided becoming entangled in murder investigations for several months, but she may need to brush up on her detective skills in order to help her new friend.This is just the second book I've read in this series. The writing has improved slightly over the first book in the series, but it still got in the way of my enjoyment of the book. The conversations between the characters just don't seem natural to me. The characters repeatedly use each other's names when conversing with each other. What do you think, Kelly? I don't know what to think, Burt. Who talks like that in real life? I'm sure I'd get lots of strange looks from my friends or co-workers if I were to use their names in every other sentence I spoke to them. There really wasn't much to the mystery. It was obvious early on what had actually happened. Between the awkward dialogue and the mystery that wasn't really a mystery, there wasn't much here to draw me back to this series.

This is not your usual mystery. For one thing, the murder doesn't happen until later in the book. The author sets out to show why a certain newcomer to the community will become the chief suspect. It is also very obvious who really committed the heinous act. If this is a person's first Sefton book, they probably won't think much of it. To someone who is following the series, it is a pleasant visit with characters they have grown to love. There's a Christmas pageant that you will not want to miss! As flawed as the mystery is, it was still my favorite Christmas read of the season. I'm not a knitter, but I love the "family atmosphere" present at the House of Lambspun.

This book is part of the Knitting Mystery series by Maggie Sefton. I've read all of the previous five books and have enjoyed them. However, this one was kind of a let down. I don't think it is actually the book itself. I just think I'm tired of the series. I begin to lose interest with the same set of characters, same setting, and similar plot lines after several books. The biggest draw for me in the beginning was all the references to knitting -- descriptions of new projects, luscious yarns, etc. However, I don't think even that can keep me interested much longer.Kelly Flynn, CPA and part-time sleuth, gets involved in another mystery in the small Colorado town of Fort Connor when a woman is killed in a hit and run. At first it appears to be an accident, but it soon turns out to be something more sinister.I am not usually a very astute reader. I don't normally look for the clues in mysteries. So, even though I may have some idea about who dunnit, I'm not usually sure about it until close to the end of the book. However, in this case, it was blatantly obvious early on. Again, it's a fun read, but I think I need to take a break from the series, at least for a while.One thing I did like about this one is that it contained more than the usual one recipe and one knitting pattern. Instead, it contained five knitting patterns and seven recipes.

This book was okay, but not the best I've ever read. I figured out "whodunnit" quite soon after the murder occurred, and then it was just a matter of wading through the rest of the book to reach the conclusion. The author definitely needs to rein in her use of the word "whoa"--at one point it appears at least three times on one page, and I lost count of the number of times it appears in each chapter. A new phrase to express surprise is definitely in order! If I find another book in the series on a paperback exchange or offered to me by a family member, I'll probably read it, but I won't go out of my way to find other books and I certainly won't purchase them.

All the books in this series are great. They are light, easy reading which is often exactly what we need to relax. The characters are great, as are the patterns and recipes at the end. I always look forward to the next one!

I really enjoy this series. I'm not a mystery reader normally, but these offer my hobby (knitting) with some nice characters and makes for an easy read. I can get away from my life and join Kelly and her friends knit, live their lives (softball, jazz club, knitting, working) and have some fun and a mystery. I always look forward to Maggie Sefton's next book! And so do a lot of others! Getting a free knit pattern and a recipe is a great perk, too. I want to make the mint chocolate fudge and one of the sleeveless shell sweaters from her last couple of books. It's not a book to task your mind! It's a book to enjoy! Get away from it all! Just plain fun!
