Maggie Sefton revisits Kelly Flynn and the Lambspun Knitters in this 15th Knitting Mystery. This time, a woman is brutally murdered on the golf course nearby the Lambspun Yarn and Fiber Shop.

With Kelly nine months pregnant, there isn’t much she can do for legwork when it comes to investigating the murder. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a good murder mystery, you won’t find it here. The murder is secondary to Kelly’s pregnancy and her relationships with her friends and her boyfriend and soon-to-be husband, Steve.

I’m afraid that I feel the same way I felt about the last book I read in this series. There is too much repetition of dialogue and description of colorful yarns, the weather, where people are going to sit, and how much coffee or tea Kelly will consume.

This was a great and fun series, with well- plotted murders. Perhaps this is the last book. I don’t know that for certain, but Sefton did a very good job of wrapping things up for the main characters, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to end it now, with a happy ending for Kelly and for her friends.

If you have read this whole series, or even several of the books, it’s worth your time to read this. Even if the mystery isn’t satisfying, you’ll enjoy finding out what happens to Kelly, Steve, and the others.
