I usually wait to judge a new series until I read the second book, but I am a little taken aback by negative views of this volume. I often find the first book of a series weak, but the author develops assurance as they continue. Or they crash and burn. Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael became one of my favorite series, but I thought that the first book, A Morbid Taste for Bones, was decidedly mediocre, especially for an experienced writer.
I would agree with some of the other reviewers that the characters need more development and the book certainly needed better editing. The editing is probably hopeless, but the character development wasn't so dreadful as to ruin the book for me and can certainly be improved in further installments. While Kelly's ability to switch to being an off-site employee may or may not be unrealistic in her...
"Knit One, Kill Two" is the debut offering in a new cozy mystery series with a knitting twist. The book introduces the delightful Kelly Flynn, consulting CPA and newbie knitter, along with a host of knitting friends who all meet at a yarn store called the House of Lambspun. As the story opens, Kelly is recently arrived in Fort Conner, Colorado to attend her murdered Aunt Helen's funeral. The local police department has quickly detained a vagrant and charged him with Helen's murder, writing off Helen's death as a random break-in.

The heroine is a feisty single young woman who adjusts to some serious changes in her personal life. When her aunt is murdered, she inherits the cottage and surrounding land in Colorado far from her beloved east coast. While she intended to stay "just long enough to settle the estate," she has questions about her aunt's death and finds herself stretching her allotted time in order to find the answers. The plot moves ahead quickly with frequent "knitting breaks" at the shop across the street, where we meet her supporting cast - a group of friends who welcome her to their small community. This is a good story in a beautiful setting - whodunnit is secondary to enjoying the search. I'm looking forward to the author's next book.
