Book #25 in 2006
Finished: 08/21
Title: Needled to Death
Author: Maggie Sefton
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Format: Paperback
Pages: 239
My Rating: 4/5

Description from the publisher:
Taking a troop of tourists to Vickie Claymore's alpaca farm doesn't earn knitter Kelly Flynn a warm welcome. Instead she finds Vickie splayed out on her original hand-woven rug, her blood seeping into the design.

My Comments:
OK the description above doesn't even begin to cover this story! There was so much more then just the mystery of who killed Vickie..
Kelly is also inheriting a ranch and the descriptions (and fun) that took place there were written in such a way that you could just picture the cattle, sheep and alpaca roaming around.. And of course there is all that knitting fun! The way the author describes the colors and textures of the yarns still has me dying to "fall down that rabbit hole" into the yarn & knitting wonderland too!

The series is really amazing and gives you a great feeling of sitting down with a group of friends every time you pick up the book.. At first I was thinking that there were way too many characters, but getting into this second book I just don't see how we'd get that feeling of being surrounded by friends without them all! Sure the story could be told with probably half the characters, but it just wouldnt be the same, and I have to say I'm pretty sorry I said that in my first review!!
Can't wait to get to Deadly Yarn!


  1. I picked up her first one and really need to make time to read it. After reading this posting, I have to move it up my TBR pile :)

  2. Hi Amelia!

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you think about the series. I wasn't as positive about the first book as I was about this second one, but now I can't wait to get to the third!

    Happy Reading
