Couple of weeks ago, I got the latest book by Maggie Sefton, "Unraveled" and just had to save it for my vacation. The other day, when staying outside was not an option due to the heat, I curled up on my couch and read the knitting mystery - luckily my appartment is cooled, and that is without the use of airconditioning or other cooling systems.
You might be wondering: What is a knitting mystery?
It is a murder mystery, where the head character, Kelly Flynn tries like a modern Miss Marple to solve "Who did it?" - her friends at the local knitting shop, House of the Lambspun helps her. Instead of good old St. Mary Mead, the story takes place in Fort Connor, Colorado. One review on her previous novels states "Readers will enjoy visiting with Kelly and her knitting buddies, who, in their carefree way, resemble the cast of Friends".
Just up my alley with nice cups of tea :o)
