This month I read Skein of the Crime by Maggie Sefton. Its the 8th book in the series Kelly Flynn Knitting mysteries.
Kelly is a CPA who in the 1st book moves to Fort Conner,Colorado after her aunt passes away. She meets some people at the local yarn shop that is near Kelly. She becomes friends with them, and learns how to knit.
In Skein of the Crime Holly, a collage student is found dead near a river trail that's not to far from Kelly. Holly in the last book was found in Kelly's backyard high on drugs. Holly got cleaned, and was taking knitting classes at Lambspun. She also been seeing her High school sweetheart, Tommy who is away at collage. His mother wasn't please that they've been dating, because Holly calls him.
The B story line is Megan, Kelly's friend just got engaged, and Kelly (and the other friends) was helping her to look for a wedding dress. and Kelly being the CPA tells her to set a budget for the wedding. Along with Megan getting frustrated with everything getting booked to have it next year.
It also goes with how the housing market is at the time(book came out at 2010. though it holds true today). One friend Jennifer is a relater and Kelly's boyfriend Steve, is an architect. Steve has to take 2nd job in Denver to try to make ends meet for him.
I had a hard time reading the book. Even though it was an easy read, as all cozy's are. When I stared this book I think I was all read out as I read 9 books the whole month of July when I was away to dog sit for my aunt. What would take me maybe 2 or 3 days to read a book like this it took me almost the whole month. I was getting tired of Kelly butting in with money management advise to her friends. and I felt some of the things the characters said sounded kinda hokey. :P I did think the killer was one person, but was wrong. :P I will be reading the other in the series.
my journal page is kinda a hot mess. I took a page that the background was pretty much done. I went online and googled knitting. i printed 3 pictures I found. One was some squares that I did a transfer with. The yarn and the knitting desserts I cut and glued on the page. I doodles on the yarn.
