Springtime in Fort Connor, Colorado, is a breeze until a veteran con man shows up in town. Everyone—including the House of Lambspun knitters—is up in arms, and once again it’s up to Kelly Flynn to untangle the threads of a complicated crime…
Years ago Jared Rizzoli operated a Ponzi scheme that defrauded countless Fort Connor residents—including Barbara, one of the shop’s knitters. Jared went to jail for his crime, but after being released for good behavior, he’s back to ruin more lives.
When Jared is found dead in his car outside of Lambspun, Barbara becomes a prime suspect, much to the shock of the knitting community. Kelly and her friends now need to sort through a long list of fleeced suspects to pin the crime on the true killer…

Sefton's writing is boring. I have followed this mystery series because of an interest in the characters, but this book had them saying the same thing over and over again. There was no action. Kelly continues to fill up her bottomless coffee mug while gossiping at the knitting store, over and over and over again. I don't intend to continue to follow this series. My time is more valuable than wasting it on poorly written mysteries.
What was once an amusing but lightweight mystery series has become unamusing and no-weight. I don't blame the readers who bailed after 50 pages. They showed more sense than I. Having pre-ordered it as soon as Amazon alerted me to its upcoming publication, and after buying all the other titles in this series I felt obligated to give it and Ms. Sefton every chance. Alas, they did not seize a one. First, there is no mystery. It is clear from the beginning who did it. Second, who cares? The one-dimensional victim, fraudulent financial advisor Jared Rizzoli, is such a villain that he had it coming after fleecing Fort Conner investors, then returning from prison to offer free investment seminars. The readers are never offered any reason to regret his death, nor to fear that the killer poses any risk to others. Third, where are the characters? Rizzoli isn't the only piece of cardboard populating these pages. If you didn't know Kelly, Mimi, Burt, Steve, and the gang...
Kelly and her friends in Ft. Collins, CO present another great knitting mystery. Kelly is like the Nancy Drew character while she works and socializes with all her friends. There wasn't a lot of knitting done, but it was still a great read. Still a lot of drinking coffee and eating great food from the shop across the street from her cottage, and activities. There was a lot of yarn petting too. A new character, Cassie was added. She's a preteen, and everyone takes her under their wing. I can't wait until this story continues next summer, 2014.
