       Knit One, Kill Two

Despite the fact that her aunt was an expert knitter, Kelly Flynn never picked up a pair of knitting needles she liked—until she strolled into House of Lambspun. Now, in the first in a brand-new series, she learns how to knit one, purl two, and untangle the mystery behind her aunt's murder.

Kelly Flynn would be the first to admit her life in Washington, D.C. is a little on the dull side. But coming back to Colorado for her beloved aunt's funeral wasn't the kind of excitement she was seeking. The police are convinced that her Aunt Helen's death was the result of a burglary gone bad, but for the accountant in Kelly, things just aren't adding up. After all, why would her sensible, sixty-eight-year-old aunt borrow $20,000 just days before her death? With the help of the knitting regulars at House of Lambspun, Kelly gets a few lessons in turning out a sumptuously colored scarf and in luring a killer out of hiding.

"Maggie Sefton has knit together a mystery with more twists and turns than the scrumptious yarns in the fictional shop of Lambspun. This is a clever, fast-paced plot, with a spunky sleuth and a cast of fun, engaging characters."
   —Margaret Coel, New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Wind River mystery series

"Cozy up with a great new author. Knit One, Kill Two has well-drawn characters and a wickedly clever plot."
   —Laura Childs, author of the successful Berkley Prime Crime Teahouse Mystery series and Scrapbook Mystery series.
