Unraveled is the ninth book in the Knitting Mystery series and a very delightful read.

Kelly's friends at Lambspun are walking on egg shells around around her after the recent breakup of her and Steve. So Jennifer, a real estate agent, invites Kelly to ride to the canyon with her to inspect some property she has under contract. As they turn onto the drive of the property, the owners wife passes them. Upon entering the house Kelly and Jennifer find the owner shot in the head with a WW II gun lying nearby. The deceased man has had a history of bad real estate dealings. The deceased was in the middle of a heated divorce, one of Keely's clients has also had run-ins with him. So it is time for Kelly "Sherlock" Flynn and her friend Burt Parker put their heads together To find the killer. In Kelly's "real job" as an accountant she needs to visit various contractor meetings and dinners. After one of these Kelly is invited to a volley ball game where she crosses paths with Steve. This is one of the funniest scenes that I have read in a long time. Kelly has a bunch of zany friends and they also provided much enjoyment in this book. I always look forward to the next book in Maggie Sefton's knitting series. As always there is a recipes and knitting pattern included.

Unraveled starts off a bit slowly, but effortlessly builds to a crescendo that leaves you feverishly flipping the pages. Sefton knows how to weave an engaging tale and follow through with the pattern she started out with and that is what made me say, " What took you so long to discover this series, you fool!" I mean, seriously, am I living in a cave? - Please, don't answer that and thank you for refraining, although, you were highly tempted. I found myself shaking my head as I delved further into the deftly scripted mystery. I put the book aside long enough to make a mental notation and mumble, "You have got to read this series from the beginning, tootsie, because it is a keeper!"

Sefton writes like she was born with a pen in one hand and a notepad in the other. She definitely knows how to tell a tale or two around the ole campfire. Sefton's spirited characters are authentic and the Colorado backdrop is strikingly resplendent in the spring.

A bit of fun, a bit of romance, a bit of history, a bit of relaxation, a bit of underhandedness, and a corpse no one will miss! This is #9 of the Knitting series, but to be fair in my review I must say it is several years since I read one of Maggie's series, #2 "Needled to Death", so I am coming into this cozy series with little knowledge of what has gone before. Just the same, I feel attuned to the book. I'm delighted that this series takes place among the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, a beautiful location with lots of inspiration for a book of this type. I can almost associate the colours of the landscapes with the colours of the yarns featured in this series.

The story is centered around a mixed group of friends, all ages, male and female, with several interests in common. Added to the mix, an author of Western History has come to town as Curt's houseguest and the whole group immediately takes to him. These friends sound wonderful, I would love to meet them in person. Maggie Sefton brings her characters alive with their speech, a trick of emphasis that I could hear quite plainly in my mind. The hub at the center is Lambspun, a yarn and knitting shop with a room where friends can gather, knitting and chatting, with a convenient café attached to the shop.

Though most of these friends are knitters, with Mimi and Burt taking turns at the register and spinning skeins into balls, they enjoy each other's company in sports, barbecues, and sharing their moments good or bad, in a complete group or just two or three. Kelly Flynn, the amateur sleuth of the group, is trying to deal with her heartbreak over her ex-boyfriend Steve, who walked out on her in #8 "Skein of the Crime." In #9, the current book, her friends, who are also his friends, are trying to get them back together.

Kelly gets involved in saving her friend when the police don't seem to want to look any further. She and Burt get to the bottom of a tale of revenge, dirty dealing, and just plain greed. As always, the gang at Lambspun is there for support and encouragement.

This book flows nicely thru the twists and turns of the story. The characters are well written, with just the right amount of humor. Beware, not everything is neatly wrapped up at the end. What's going to happen with Kelly, I guess we'll have to wait until Maggie Sefton's next book.

Format: Hardcover
Kelly is throwing herself into her consulting basis as she tries to deal with her break up with Steve. She has picked up two major clients thanks to her friend Curt Stackhouse and they involve a lot of travel and are keeping her on her toes.

She decides to enjoy a day off with her real estate friend, Jennifer, and travel to one of her canyon properties to enjoy some beautiful vistas while Jennifer checks the property. All the views are not as beautiful as expected when they find the property owner shot to death in his home. Fred Turner is known for being difficult and he probably has more enemies than friends so there is no shortage of suspects.

Kelly just can't catch a break, her relationship with Steve has completely "unraveled" and now she finds herself in entangled in another murder investigation that has so many clues unraveling them may be her biggest challenge since coming to Fort Connor. Hopefully with a little help from her friends she can spin together all the loose ends, can book a murderer and still have time to knit some pieces of her personal life back together.

I LOVED IT!!!!!

Each book in this series is better than the last and each leaves you wanting more. Too bad authors and publishers can't work as fast as we read.

The mystery in the one was challenging with perfect twists and turns. I love these characters and was so happy to see Lizzie back at the knitting table, hopefully Hilda's health will improve so she can get back to the table in the next book. These are two spinster sisters, retired school teachers and fabulous knitters and they add a perfect touch to these stories.

Aside from the mystery and friendships of this story I absolutely loved the volleyball game that takes place midway through the book.
