Unraveled by Maggie Sefton is the 9th book in the “Knitting” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), July 2011
Spring is in the air of Fort Connor, Colorado—and it’s a time of new beginning for the House of Lambspun knitters. But for Kelly Flynn, a March chill lingers as she tries to mend her broken heart and solve a cold-blooded crime.
Kelly’s longtime romance has come apart at the seams. To distract herself, she burrows into her demanding consulting business and takes on the challenge of knitting a scarf from gorgeous unraveled silken sari yarn. Kelly’s friends are always there for support, so she accompanies friend and fellow knitter Jennifer to a meeting with Jen’s new real estate client on the canyon ranch property.
Fred Turner has a reputation for being difficult at best, unscrupulous at worst. When the two women discover him shot in his own home, they are thrust into a murder investigation where nothing is at it seems. Turner had a long list of enemies—from his estranged wife to bitter business associates—so suspicion falls on many.
As normally happens, Kelly stumbles across a dead body and her natural inclination is to start her own investigation. This was a good mystery that had me turning the pages as fast as I could read. It was a joy spending time with Kelly and her friends and I look forward to the next book in this fun and enjoyable series.
