About the Author
Maggie Sefton is the author of the New York Times bestselling Knitting Mysteries. She was born and raised in northern Virginia, where she received her bachelor's degree in English literature and journalism. While Sefton has worked as both a CPA and a real estate broker, she feels that neither of those endeavors compare to the challenge of creating worlds on paper. She is the mother of four grown daughters, currently scattered around the globe, and resides in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with two very demanding dogs.

I think Ms. Sefton probably had good intentions with the story but unfortunately it didn't work for me. There were far too many characters involved and as their personalities weren't well developed, it was difficult to differentiate between them and keep track of who was doing what and why.
As far as the mystery itself goes, it didn't exactly keep me on the edge of my chair although it was ok. Big clues as to the answer started to turn up about two thirds into the book and it was all nicely unravelled at the end.
All in all the book's not too bad but nothing to get excited about. If you've nothing else to read on a wet afternoon and enjoy cosy crimes without demanding too much of them, this is probably worth reading. I certainly wouldn't recommend putting it at the top of your 'must read' list, though.
(If I could have given this 2.5 stars then I would have. It isn't quite deserving of 3 but deserves more than 2).
The characters are likeable, the setting is rural and comforting, the plot has interesting twists. Also, the cinnamon buns (recipe included) are lovely!
You don't have to be a knitter to enjoy this book, but you may, like me, get the motivation to begin.
A) thin plot with massive holes and gigantic gaps that are never covered such as another murder occurs our heroine hears about said murder and suspects who the victim is but never actually rings anyone to find out rather she heads out for a run to clear her head.
B) paragraphs dedicated to the taste off coffee, if I wanted to read about coffee I'd watch adverts or go to costa coffee
C) poor character descriptions so much so I kept forgetting who was who and tbh they all became blurred
As said before I almost gave up but persevered because it was the first in the series and I figured that maybe it gets better but trust me it doesn't in fact it gets worse much much worse.
I'd say that the average reading age For this book is ten to about thirteen even then I think that's being generous.
If its an exciting read involving fiesty women who knit then thid isn't the book or series for you .
The book also includes knitting patterns for a chunky scarf and a shell top, and there is a recipe for the cinamon buns - all are refered to through the book so if you're inspired to get creating the information is all there for you!
Kate has returned to the town when she spent some time growing up. She has inherited from her Aunt a lovely cottage, following her aunt's murder, add to that the appearance of a distant cousin, and a missing family quilt, then another death........
If the knitting aspect had been toned down, and the characters rounded out this could have been a good book. I was wondering if the 2nd in the series improved, but I don't think I will be spending the money finding out.
