    One thought on “A Killer Stitch

    1. Karen on said:

      Ugh, I wanted to throw this book against the wall. Not because of the plot, though I guessed who the killer was very early on. No, it's the prose that kills me - pun intended. Most of the characters have the same voice, except for Jayleen who is super-Southern-drawl woman. Everyone says "Ooooh, yeah" in response to every question. The sleuth, Kelly Flynn, is forever bemoaning her lack of knitting skills even though she's been knitting multiple things in each book. Kelly's description of touching [...]

    2. Nicole on said:

      The writing is so insanely awful, and the humor would have been too gentle for my Catholic grandmother. It kind of kills me that people go on about these books being witty. They're corny at best, and work so hard to be heartwarming that they just come off saccharine and two-dimensional. Plus, isn't anyone there concerned that Kelly sort of wanders around bettering her situation because other people die? She somehow gained a cottage across from a yarn store, a whole bunch of friends, a boyfriend, [...]

      this book drove me crazy. I loved the first three in the series, but this one really got under my skin. How many cups of Eduardo's coffee can one drink? How many times can a cup of coffee be described in the same exact way? And how obvious is the freaking killer? The conversations are monotonous - basically the same conversation had over & over with different words or questions. I kept taking a break from this book, thinking I'd come back & enjoy it - but I didn't.I'm just over this seri [...]

    4. Evelyn on said:

      This series has such potential but this book was a clunker. Kelly is about as boring as a MC can get, the killer is easy to guess, the writing is repetitive, the characters are flat, and a huge chunk of the already-thin plot is devoted to setting up the next book. All that plus a frustrating thread about how Kelly and her boyfriend haven't progressed much past chaste kissing, which of course leads to an immensely silly scene where they share a long kiss in front of people and everyone around the [...]

    5. CinnamonHopes on said:

      Barely tolerable, this book was as bad as I was expecting. I had to reread the first chapter, because the characters were so generic that I couldn't tell them apart. It took me until the second chapter to identify the main character, and I mostly figured it out due to her major trait - an everpresent cup of coffee.This was the rankest crap.

    6. Joyce on said:

      I will NOT be reading any additional books from this series. The characters are unbelievably shallow. They all seem to be preoccupied with getting the main character to do something she has chosen not to do.

    7. Michelle on said:

      This is the 4th book in the Knitting Mystery cozy mystery series. When a rancher ends up dead, Kelly gets involved when a friend of a friend and former girlfriend is under suspicion. To make matters more complicated, one of the spinning instructors at her favorite knit shop is also involved in the case, being the girlfriend of the man who died, and now is pregnant with his child. Kelly is also hoping to get the ranch property that she previously lost out on when it unexpectedly comes back on the [...]

    8. Mary on said:

      This is my fourth book in this series. I am getting attached to the girls who go to the knitting shop to meet up with each other and relax for a spell. Kelly always has to have her Coffee. It is just that there is always a murder. But on this book I did not guess whodunit. This was a much better book than the others. I started the #5 book and Kelly and Steve are getting to be a couple and probably will be getting together in this book, I hope. The books are all readable and the group of people a [...]

    9. Jennifer on said:

      I don't know why I continue to read these books. The character development is lacking, the dialogue is boring and I can't stand that she has based her book on Fort Collins, but calls in Fort Connor. I don't know how many times Kelly can complain about her lack of knitting skills in one book and her dire need of coffee. So annoying.

    10. Karen on said:

      I finished a killer stitch last night and I have only read one other in this series. I enjoy the characters and the small town they live in. I am not normally a Crime of Passion mystery fan but I liked how this story played out. I will not hesitate to pick up another book in this series and love the knit patterns and recipes at the end!

      This was a fun cozy read with plenty of knitting, yarn, and coffee talk to soothe my soul. This book takes place in Colorado in December. I read it in July and it made me nostalgic for snow and Christmas.

    12. Colleen on said:

      This book is one of the author's "knitting" series. It is the first one I read, so it took me a while to get into it. Once I did though, I really enjoyed it. The characters are very easy to visualize.

    13. Brandi on said:

      This is the last book of this series I will be reading for a while. While I still enjoy reading knitting cozies, this series is plodding and not that fun.The author excels best when she is writing the interactions between the Lambspun group. The mystery, however, is eh at best and her writing is overly repetitive. The last I didn't notice too much until a colleague who had read this series and was dissatisfied by it mentioned it when she found out I was reading this.I still don't really like the [...]

    14. Jane on said:

      I'm a little baffled as to why the author has the main character own a dog. The dog shows up every once in a while for no reason relevant to the plot, and the main character's interactions with him (in the two Knitting Mystery books I've read so far) consist entirely of opening the door to let the dog out. Presumably, at some point she lets the dog back in, but we don't see this. I have no idea why these books have a dog in them, or even why the main character wants to have a dog. For someone wh [...]

    15. Linda C on said:

      When the death of a womanizing rancher puts 2 of his former love interests in the sights of the police Kelly Flynn and her knitting friends try to help out. Both woman are emotional wrecks as well as having health issues. I like the characters in this series for not just being amateur sleuths but also being involved in really being supportive. Kelly is also getting her fledgling accounting service off the ground and looking into buying a local ranch to move her alpaca herd from Wyoming. My only [...]

    16. Peter on said:

      I don't think I'll read any more of this series. I read the first three books which were somewhat entertaining. However, this book made me hate all the characters and the stupid dog that keeps chasing the squirrels. This series has the potential to have characters full of depth and with some diversity (come on, a knit shop where all the male customers are straight and where everyone is white). Furthermore, the constant need and discussion about coffee is boring and makes me wonder if the author [...]

    17. Rachel on said:

      This was the fourth book of a fun cozy mystery series. I found it to be well written for its genre with well developed characters. I love the "family" that the protagonist has found because of the Lambspun fiber shop with classes and needed items for spinning, knitting, crocheting, felting, and weaving. And I love the protagonist Kelly and her CPA brain that loves to puzzle out numbers and murders. I am such a huge fan of this series.

    18. Pat Timpanaro on said:

      This was another reliable entry in this cozy series. A few new characters have been added to the cast -- it will be interesting to see if they continue in subsequent books. Good mystery, pretty much what is to be expected in a long-running cozy. I particularly like that the knitting references feel natural rather than forced.

    19. Kim on said:

      Yet another good tale by Ms. Sefton. Although based on the cover, I really thought this would be more of a Halloween story, instead of a Christmas story. Oh well, it's right between them both now. Be be warned, you'll want to go right into the 5th story following this one!

    20. Marseydoats on said:

      I started reading this series 20 years ago, and then the library didn't have any more of them. i remember being really disappointed. I still like the series, just not as much --- I think I have turned into an old stick in the mud. Reading about young people makes me tired.

    21. Lee Uptegraff on said:

      The allure of alpaca farming, and fleece spinning sucked me into this title. The mystery was far fetched but it's a fast paced read for right before the holidays. It kept me putting off all the chores I should have been doing.

    22. Jane Love on said:

      Kelly and her Jen look into the murder of Jen's friends ex boyfriend when Diane is accused of his murder, Will Kelly ever get together with Steve and will she ever own a ranch in the canyon.

      Christmas knittingI love this series!! I've read the first 4 books in the past 5 days - now on to book #5.

    24. Colby Schlecht on said:

      Loved it! In this series you get to know the people like family. And it makes you want to knit stuff too! I'm glad there are lots more on this series!

    25. Deb Monnier on said:

      Kind of a slow moving story. Not a lot of action. I am not a knitter so that was of no interest to me. Not sure I will read another one.

    26. Deborah Almada on said:

      Another good read in the series, I love the setting, developing relationships and mysteries in this series!!!!!!!
