In this mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Yarn Over Murder, Kelly Flynn and the Lambspun Knitters must unravel the truth from the lies to clear a friend’s son of murder...
Kelly’s summer in Fort Connor, Colorado, is off to a great start with knitting classes taught by her friend Barb. But while the advanced stitches are giving Kelly the slip, a more deadly problem soon has her friend coming apart at the seams.
A young woman has accused Barb’s son, Tommy—a young doctor doing his residency—of assaulting her. The yarns spun by the local rumor mill are bad enough, but when the woman is found dead in her ransacked apartment, Tommy becomes the number one suspect.
With the police ready to close the case, it’s up to Kelly to knit together the clues to uncover a killer who doesn’t seem to drop a stitch...
From the Paperback edition.
Sefton's intriguing 13th knitting cozy (after 2014's Yarn over Murder) finds accountant Kelly Flynn taking knitting classes from her friend Barb Macenroe, a former nurse, at the House of Lambspun in Fort Connor, Colo. Meanwhile, Barb's doctor son, Tommy, is doing his residency at an emergency care clinic, where late one night he examines a walk-in patient, Laura Brewster, who says she has stomach pains. Immediately afterward, Laura accuses Tommy of sexual assault, flees the clinic, and files a complaint with the police. When Laura is later found strangled in her apartment, Tommy becomes the prime suspect in her murder. Sure of Tommy's innocence, Kelly sets out to find the real killer. Experienced knitters will appreciate the frequent discussions of knitting techniques, while beginners will feel like rushing to their local knitting shop in search of yarn. Those expecting more than a routine mystery or any serious discussion of the issue of false accusations of sexual assault will be disappointed. A muffin recipe rounds out the volume.
