Series Review: The Knitting Mystery Series by Maggie Sefton

I can just hear the eyes rolling out there. Knitting? Seriously?
And I going to say, yes! But while there may be a knitting pattern at the end of the book, this mystery sleuth is not one to be trifled with.
Enter Kelly Flynn, self-employed accountant, softball player, property owner and murder investigator.
Sure she knits, but only learns to do so when she moves to Fort Connor and starts a new life.
Meet Kelly's circle of friends who supports her through the good and bad of life and its relationships, to say nothing of applying their considerable combined brainpower (lawyer, architect, therapist, real estate agent, computer programmer, and more) to help her solve murders happening in and around their town.
But real life happens too and the difficulties of the farmers, a down turn in the economy, changes in relationships are brought to life in this very entertaining series.
The stories follow a timeline and I would recommend that you read them in order. And being the romantic at heart, I am forever holding my breath to see if Kelly finds the love that she deserves. :)

A series well worth reading, even if you don't care for knitting! Lots of interesting facts about alpaca farming, wool dyeing and spinning are woven into the story without being just dry facts to make up the page count.

In my book this series deserves 5 stars all the way!
