LET'S GET COZY: UNRAVELED - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
UNRAVELED
A Knitting Mystery
BY MAGGIE SEFTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The newest yarn from the national bestselling author of Skein of the Crime.

Spring is in the air of Fort Connor, Colorado-a time of new beginnings for the House of Lambspun knitters. But for fellow knitter Jennifer's new real estate client, it is his end. He's been murdered and Kelly Flynn is left unraveling a tangle of clues. This may prove to be her most challenging project yet.
AN EXCERPT FROM UNRAVELED: 
Kelly Flynn stepped out onto the wooden deck of Jayleen Swinson's rustic mountain log home. Clutching her ceramic mug of coffee against the cold, Kelly stood by the railing and gazed out at the snow-covered mountains in the distance. From this high up in Bellevue Canyon, north of Fort Connor, she could glimpse peaks of the Colorado Rockies behind the canyon ridges. A chilled early March breeze set the tall ponderosa pines to swaying and caused Kelly to shiver. Winter wasn't over yet, despite the sound of her friends' laughter coming from inside. They all knew their End of Winter, Welcome Spring Barbeque was premature. March was usually Colorado's snowiest month. But the gang never needed much excuse to gather for a party, especially when food was involved.

Jennifer Stroud stepped out onto the deck. "Hey, what're you doing here in the cold? Come on in. Megan's going to slice that chocolate cake she made. I've gained three pounds just looking at it."

"I came out for some fresh air and a glimpse of the mountains. You know, a mountain fix." Kelly smiled at her friend.

 ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 
New York Times bestselling mystery author Maggie Sefton shares something in common with the heroine of her new suspense mystery, DEADLY POLITICS. Like Molly Malone, Maggie was born in Virginia and grew up in Arlington, a stone's throw across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. Maggie's hometown has always had a special hold on her, which she blames on her lifelong fascination with Washington politics. Maggie swears she's been watching politicians since she was old enough to read the Washington Post. "D.C. is in my DNA."

Maggie received her bachelor's degree in English literature and journalism from The George Washington University in Washington, DC and worked at a variety of jobs throughout the city. Maggie has also been a CPA and a real estate agent in the Rocky Mountain West, but finds nothing can match creating worlds on paper.

Maggie was first published in historical fiction in 1995 with Berkley Jove, under the pen name Margaret Conlan. She'd written over a million words of historical fiction before she ever wrote the first mystery. DYING TO SELL, with real estate agent sleuth Kate Doyle, was published by Five Star Mysteries in 2005. But it was the Kelly Flynn Mysteries set in Northern Colorado which became repeat bestsellers starting in June 2005. UNRAVELED, 9th in the series, made the New York Times Bestselling Hardcover Fiction List after its June 2011 release. UNRAVELED was also Barnes & Noble #4 Bestselling Hardcover Mystery. All of the mysteries in the successful series have been Barnes & Noble Top Ten Bestselling Mysteries, and several have been New York Times Bestsellers as well.

Mother of four grown daughters, Maggie can't stay away from Washington for long, so she splits her time between the city and her home in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
