Shelley's Review

Happy July 4th! Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton.

Series: A Knitting Mystery (Book 12)
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Berkley (June 2, 2015)
Language: English

In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Yarn Over Murder, Kelly Flynn and the Lambspun Knitters must unravel the truth from the lies to clear a friend’s son suspected of murder…

Kelly Flynn’s summer in Fort Connor, Colorado, is off to a great start with romantic celebrations with her boyfriend, Steve, and enjoyable—albeit challenging—knitting classes taught by her friend Barb at the House of Lambspun. But while Barb’s advanced stitches are giving Kelly the slip, a more deadly problem soon has her friend coming apart at the seams.

A young woman has accused Barb’s son, Tommy—a young doctor doing his residency—of assaulting her. The yarns spun by the local rumor mill are bad enough, but when the young woman is found dead in her ransacked apartment, Tommy becomes the number one suspect.

The police are ready to close the case, but Kelly is convinced that there are a few more likely suspects. Now she has to knit together the clues herself to uncover a killer who doesn’t seem to drop a stitch...

I love visiting Fort Connor and spending time with Kelly and her friends. Kelly and her friends are back in action again with summer ball games, food , fun and murder. The characters are family and with exciting news for some of them to finding out who the killer is you will be captivated and pulled into the story from the start. The atmosphere is welcoming and the friendships have grown so strong over the years. I have been a fan of this series from the start and each book gets better and better, The hardest part is waiting until the next book to come out. This is a must read for knitters and non- knitters, you will fall in love with the town and the people in it. A story about family, friends, saying goodbye and new beginnings, this book will touch your heart from the start. Don't miss out on this sensational read.


  1. This is a new author to me, but I'm adding her to my TBR list. The book sounds great and I love to knit and Colorado is my home state! Thank you for the review, Shelley.
