4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Cosy Reading 4 Jan. 2010
By Annette
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not sure how I came upon this series of murder/knitting/cooking books but I've started buying them for my Mum (okay, I've read them too!).

If you want a nice, not too taxing read then this is definitely the series for you. Despite their being a murder in every book and some general sinister "goings on" it's a cosy read and actually made me think about learning to knit. That lasted about 5 minutes and I've left that to my Mum but I would definitely recommend starting at the beginning of the series and taking a leisurely stroll through the adventures.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Amateur sleuth Kelly Flynn and her fellow knitters are back- this time solving a murder that takes place right at the heart of House of Lambspun and rocks them all to their core. A young woman is found drowned in a tub of blue dye in the knitting shops basement, and though it is initially thought the incident is merely a burglary gone wrong, in soon appears that something far more sinister is afoot...

There's vendettas galore, an alpaca ranch and dog training for Kelly's naughty Rottweiler thrown in for good measure. A bit of romance in there too, though I sometimes want to shake Kelly and ask her why on earth she's taking her time with gorgeous sounding Steve!

A great read for cosy mystery fans; though I personally didn't find this as strong as her last one given that it was fairly predictable who was behind the whole saga from about a quarter of the way through this time! I still enjoyed it though. It's great catching up with Kelly and her friends- and there's a nice indication here that perhaps flirty Jennifer has an admirer and shy Megan's love interest from the previous book is back too. That's really why these books need reading in order- there's lots of continuation from the previous one as well as back stories to characters, so you must start from the beginning- which isn't exactly a chore. They're all fabulous!

As I've said, any book from this series is a real treat to curl up with if you're looking for easy reading. Don't be put off if you can't knit either, I can't and I still adore these books and their small-town Colorado setting. There's also a knitting pattern and a delicious sounding recipe included that is featured in the novel which is a bonus for any mystery reading foody- in this one Pete's pecan pie. Yum! Will definitely be giving that a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as earlier books in the series 6 Jun. 2008
By K. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Summary

In "Dyer Consequences," Kelly Flynn, an accountant, knitter, and ranch owner is harassed with acts of vandalism toward her car, home, Rotweiller, and self. Kelly's realtor friend, Jennifer, introduces her co-worker, Tracy, to the wonderful world of hand-dyed yarns.

As a newcomer to the series, Tracy didn't stand a chance. She was promptly drowned in a vat of hot dye at the House of Lambspun. Sadly, the yarn store itself was also trashed by vandals. Was Tracy murdered by vandals? Or was the vandalism a red herring?

To learn the truth, you'll have to read "Dyer Consequences" yourself as revealing any more of the plot would spoil the mystery.

Criticisms

One of the weaknesses of "Dyer Consequences" is that you have to wait until page 60 for the murder. That means reading about skiing, dyeing yarn, etc., for at least an hour before you get to "the good stuff."

Another difficulty is that this series has alot of supporting characters; therefore, Sefton has to advance the two threads of the mystery while moving the romances along between Kelly & Steve, Burt & Mimi, Megan & Marty, in addition to introducing a new potential romance between Pete & Jennifer. There was a whole section on, "You've gotta sign up for tennis," that I skipped over. Some of these supporting romances have GOT to go or the next book in the series will need to be shelved in the "Romance" section.

All in all, "Dyer Consequences" is worth a read but it's not Sefton's finest work.

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth reading anymore.............. 1 Sept. 2008
By C. kissin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My husband and son gave me the first two in the series because I love knitting. Instead of developing, they have become weaker and weaker...... I won't bother if there are more. The characters do not develop, there is no real substance, and the author leans on amateurish devices....enough coffee!.....

Save your money.... but yarn!

1.0 out of 5 stars Time to end this series 4 Jun. 2008
By M. Scheller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Most authors get better overtime, not Maggie Sefton. This book was worse than the last. She has learned a few new words and phrases, for example Whoa, Don't worry, and vandal, these appear ad nauseum in the book. Kelly is not even a likable character. She interferes in Mimi's business, offering free classes and determining what should be done in the shop. Then she sits on her throne while her friends run both her ranches, come up with ways to support her ridiculous purchases and basically do her bidding. The dialogue among supposedly mature professional adults is sophomoric at best. Select another cozy, Monica Ferris or Mary Kruger for your knitting fix. Amazon should offer a zero star review, this book qualifies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting better with each book 1 Feb. 2009
By knitdr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Dyer Consequences is the fifth book in the Knitting Mysteries series and we now see the blossoming of the characters. The previous books were good, predictable mysteries but Dyer Consequences shows us that the characters are more complex and can exhibit behavior and thoughts more in line with reality. Kelly Flynn finally allows a mature relationship with Steve which was too long in development (she had agonized over even dating or kissing him in the other books). Other relationships also are more adult and the conversation seems more realistic this round. I liked this book the best so far and look forward to finishing Fleece Navidad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so much 21 Sept. 2008
By InCogNito - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I've read several of the books in this series, including this one. I had to stop reading them, due to the fact that the main character really annoys me. For one, she is nosy and second, I am sick to death of her caffeine lobe throbbing. Caffeine lobe......???? Seriously. I think these are probably better suited to younger readers. The best thing about these books is the patterns that are included.
