Purl Up And Die is the thirteenth book in the A Knitting Mystery series.

Another wonderful story from Maggie Sefton.

Things are in a turmoil at Lambspun as one of the knitting teachers, Barb, has just learned from her son, Tommy has been charged with assault. Tommy, who is performing his residency at local emergency clinics and after examining her she charges him with assault for improperly touching her. Quite naturally, with Barb being an overprotective mother, she takes this news quite hard and her firnds at Lambspun begin to worry about her mental health. Then when the girl, Laura Brewster, is found murdered things get worse for her. Tommy claims to have been studying for a residency test and therefore has no alibi for the time when Brewster was murdered.

Kelly, with the help of her friends at Lambspun set out with their own investigation, since the police seem to think they have an open and shut case. They soon learn that this wasn't the first time that Brewster had made similar charges. Now they just have to track down the killer before it is too late.

Knitting pattern and recipes are included with the book.

Looking forward to reading the next book in the enjoyable series. ( )

I’ve mentioned this in a previous review, but 13 certainly not an unlucky number. At least not when it means the 13th in a cozy mystery series! PURL UP AND DIE is one of the best books in the Knitting Mystery series so far! Author Maggie Sefton has written another wonderful whodunit with this book.

I went through a lot of nail biting reading this story. I wasn’t sure how the author was going to sort things out at the end of the book. I was so sure I was on the right track at times, but something always happened that completely threw me off. When the reveal came, I was stunned. I really didn’t see it coming. Well done, Ms. Sefton!

It would be fun to understand kitting, but it certainly it’s not required to enjoy this book or the series. You may however feel the urge to learn, because the group of characters in this series seem to have a great time with it!

I’m very much looking forward to see what mystery author Sefton knits together for the fourteenth installment in this entertaining and wonderfully written series!

And don’t miss the knitting pattern and delicious recipe at the back of the book! ( )

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...
