Kelly has now settled into a consulting business and life in Colorado permanently. A rancher is murdered who has been involved with a spinning teacher at Kelly's knitting store hangout. While she doesn't plan to get involved at first, she is soon entangled because Jennifer knows the obvious suspect and thinks she's innocent. I actually thought this was a pretty obvious mystery - I had figured out the murderer quite early. Since Kelly really didn't know the suspects or the victim, it made also the investigation run a little sluggishly. It wasn't a bad plot, though.
We finally seem to be getting a little movement in Kelly's relationship with Steve and hopefully this will continue. We also seem to have a new interest for Megan and there are several other budding romances.
This book seems to be set up for the next book as much as its own book (anyone know what it will be or when it will be publisehd?) as Kelly is working to buy land (Geri Norbert's place from Needled to Death), but the end really seems to intimdate she'll have major problems with the new land.
Spinning class teacher Lucy Adair is devastated by the murder of her new boyfriend, Derek Cooper. It turns out he had many women--and a few men--who might have wanted him dead. There was old girlfriend Diane, a heavy drinker who had been furious with him recently, and the man who had been promised an investment, and then Derek pulled out at the last minute and laughed.
Kelly's good friend Jennifer asks for her help in saving Diane from her drinking, and from despair. She lied to the police and now it is catching up to her. It seems she was the last person to see Derek alive. Or was she? Was there another car coming up the road to Derek's place when she left? Was there a car parked nearby? Poor Lucy is unusually devastated by this murder, and she has several secrets, shared with her close friend Ellen. Kelly is able to tease out the truth, winding up the case with calm good sense and the help of her many friends.
This novel is the epitome of the cozy mystery--warm and soft knitting wools, good food, and great friends. You will long to make a visit to the House of Lambspun, take a class, have some hot chocolate and maybe some chocolate mint fudge. You can have some of the fudge because the recipe is in the back of the book, along with a scarf pattern.
Author Sefton fell in love with knitting late in life, discovering a store that sounds very much like House of Lambspun, and soon after the characters for these mysteries came into her life.
Armchair Interviews says: A cozy mystery for knitters or non-knitters alike.
But this one was weak.... the story, the writing... all very sophomoric. I felt like I was reading the work of a high school class. .... and I was NOT expecting great literature.
If this series is to continue, it will have to improve significantly....
As Kelly starts to look into the murder she finds that there are very few people who knew Derek who didn't have a motive for killing him, and it's comes down to opportunity. But, she's distracted when she learns that the buyer for the canyon land she wanted has put it back up for sale and she puts in another bid. Tensions rise and the police turn up the pressure on their likely suspect.
One of the nice benefits of a continuing series of well-fleshed out characters is that you get updates on what's happening in their lives. So, in the midst of Kelly investigating the murder, we find that maybe Burt and Mimi seem to be spending time together. That everyone has noticed that Kelley and Steve are courting. And that life goes on for Curt Stackhouse who recently lost his wife to cancer. That there may be more to café owner Pete than meets the eye.Read more ›
