Kelly's spring project: rehabbing an alpaca ranch. But someone has different ideas for keeping her busy, including slashing tires and cracking windshields. Then the House of Lambspun knitting shop is trashed, and a woman is found drowned in a tub of dye. Although it seems like a burglary gone wrong, Kelly suspects there's more to it. And as disturbing incidents pile up, she must pick up the stitches of these crimes before the killer strikes again.
In Sefton's chatty fifth knitting cozy (after 2007's A Killer Stitch), Colorado yarn aficionado Kelly Flynn investigates the murder of a member of her knitting group, whose body she discovers half-submerged in a dye tub in a yarn shop basement. Despite her friends' warnings, Kelly determines to catch not only the killer but also the vandal who's targeted her house and tried to poison her dog. Meanwhile, Kelly is busy remodeling her newly purchased alpaca ranch in a nearby canyon. When her car brakes fail and she barely escapes serious injury on a treacherous mountain road, Kelly fears this case could be her last. Instructions for knitting a cloche hat and a recipe for pecan pie round out a volume sure to please series fans.
