50 in 2012: Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton

I found out about the Kelly Flynn books by Maggie Sefton on Ravelry. And I was sucked in by the promise of a cozy mystery with a knitting link.

The first book of the series is Knit One, Kill Two. You know I have to start at the beginning!

Washington, D.C., accountant Kelly Flynn…

returns to her Colorado home town to handle her recently murdered aunt’s estate. Her trip is meant to be temporary, just to wrap things up. But her aunt’s murder is bothering her and she doesn’t like the way the local police are handling it. It seems too convenient to blame the murder on a local vagrant. There’s $20,000 missing, a family heirloom disappeared, and a broken knitting needle. What does it all mean?

The local ladies take Kelly under their wing, finally getting her into knitting. Aunt Helen had tried many times over the years to teach Kelly, but she had always resisted the lure of the needles. But she feels at home in the knitting shop located in what was once Aunt Helen’s family home. She loves the bright colors and the soft, pet-able yarns. She also loves the camaraderie of her aunt’s circle of friends.

Family secrets are revealed. Another murder occurs. But Kelly perseveres and finds the guilty party. And knits her scarf…

I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I’ve got book two all ready to download on my devices. The characters are likable. The sleuthing probable.

Let me know if you’re a fan of this series. Personally, I can’t wait to read more!

  1. You could read this just because the title is so amazing. Typical mass market murder mystery, but there is oh so much knitting!!! I read this on the NY subways and couldn’t wrench myself away. Lolz.

  2. I agree that the knitting in the title made me pick it up, but she really makes you CARE about her characters. Any little lonely part of your being is enveloped by the open friendliness of the characters, the warmth of the nearby yarn store and coffee shop, and the beauty of the surroundings (which she describes very well). I want to move there and become a part of that group. Failing that, I’ll just keep reading…
