Fun afternoon read Dec 12 2005
By Coppertop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had read the first book in this series and was delighted with this second offering. It was as cozy and fun as the first. Kelly's problems with knitting also made me feel good because I always have problems too! I like how the author is slowly setting Kelly up to be able to stay in Ft. Connors and setting up her relationship with Steve.

If you like cozy mysteries and knitting, this is definitely the book for you! Definitely a winning new series.

Long on the Cozy Chitchat and Knitting, But Short on the Mystery Feb. 28 2007
By L. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Needled to Death" is the second offering in the Knitting mystery series by Colorado author Maggie Sefton. Set in the summer, a few months after accountant Kelly Flynn has arrived in Fort Connor to deal with her murdered aunt's estate, the mystery revolves around the death of Vickie Claymore, an alpaca rancher. Kelly and her friend Jennifer volunteered to escort a knitting tour group to visit Vickie's alpaca ranch, only to find Vickie's body in her ranch house with her throat cut. Kelly finds herself further involved in Vickie's affairs when she is hired by Vickie's daughter Debbie to help her prepare financial documents for her mother's estate.

Meanwhile, Kelly continues on her journey of learning to knit, with lots of cozy camaraderie with her knitting buddies at Fort Connor's House of Lambspun. Being an avid knitter myself, I really enjoyed reading of Kelly's growth in knitting. I enjoyed the information about alpace ranching woven into this tale. Also, Kelly and her friends take a trip to Wyoming to inspect the ranch which Kelly inherited from her cousin.

This book was a very quick read, and the continuing development of the character of Kelly and her friends kept my attention. The book was a cozy and enjoyable one to read, I was just a little disappointed in the lack of development of the mystery. I hope that the next book in this series has a bit more mystery to it.

Loved The Knitting Stuff but... Feb. 25 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really do love all the knitting references and descriptions and I am a new knitter like Kelly. However, the plot is very thin and the author has not researched her facts well. Without giving too much away, one of the plot devices in this book is inheritance issues. A woman is killed and her not-quite-divorced husband will share the inheritance of her successful alpaca ranch with her daughter. It is mentioned that if the daughter dies, the husband who is the daughter's hated step-father would inherit everything. Unless Colorado's inheritance laws are a lot different from the rest of the U.S., there is no way he would inherit from her. 1. Since she hated him, she would not have left him anything in a will. 2. If she died without a will and had no husband and children, he would still not inherit because he was not really related to her. Her other relatives would benefit, not the stepdad. The character of Kelly is a difficult one to relate to. And I wish the author would write with a bit more subtlety. Every time a character makes a joke or is even sarcastic, the author beats you over the head with it to make sure you knew it was a joke.

Fun to read May 26 2007
By I. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a delightful, light mystery. The characters would make lovable real-life friends. The descriptions of the colors and textures of the yarns make me want to run out and learn how to knit just so I can experience the fun these characters have with their hobby.

Alpacas and murder Nov. 24 2008
By Dawn Dowdle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kelly Flynn volunteers to take a group of knitting tourists to visit Vickie Claymore's alpaca farm. Unfortunately when they arrive, she discovered Vickie dead on her original hand-woven rug.

Vickie's daughter Debbie hires Kelly to prepare financial documents for her mother's alpaca business for the attorney. As Kelly gets more involved in Vickie's business, she begins to dig deeper to find the killer.

Can she unmask the murderer without putting herself in his/her sites?

This is the second in this knitting mystery series. I have enjoyed both of them tremendously. I look forward to reading many more. The Colorado setting adds to the wonderful cozy mystery series. I really enjoy Kelly and the other women she knits with at the House of Lambspun. What a great cast of characters.

I highly recommend this book and series.
