Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton

I read Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton on Sunday. This was a very interesting read that had me thinking. The subject matter was more serious in this usually more light cozy series. I very much enjoyed this very relevant mystery and found I could not put it down. It had me struggling to find the killer and my own emotions regarding what I could have done or would have chosen to do if placed in this mystery situation. On the lighter note I love and appreciate the amount of time spent at the baseball field in this baseball season based story. Maggie did a great job of balancing a mystery that could have been ripped from the headlines and the essence of what makes a long running cozy series cozy!

Kelly’s summer in Fort Connor, Colorado, is off to a great start with knitting classes taught by her friend Barb. But while the advanced stitches are giving Kelly the slip, a more deadly problem soon has her friend coming apart at the seams. A young woman has accused Barb’s son, Tommy—a young doctor doing his residency—of assaulting her. The yarns spun by the local rumor mill are bad enough, but when the woman is found dead in her ransacked apartment, Tommy becomes the number one suspect.  With the police ready to close the case, it’s up to Kelly to knit together the clues to uncover a killer who doesn’t seem to drop a stitch...
