LET'S GET COZY! YARN OVER MURDER: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
YARN OVER MURDER
A Knitting Mystery
BY MAGGIE SEFTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First Time in Paperback

In the latest installment of the New York Times bestselling Knitting Mysteries, Kelly Flynn and the House of Lambspun knitters may be able to save the helpless animals in danger from a raging Colorado wildfire, but not the unexpected victim of a cold-blooded murder…

Kelly and her knitting pals were checking out the wares at the annual Wool Market when news spread about the wildfires threatening the canyon ranches. With temperatures scorching, the alpacas belonging to Kelly’s good friend Jayleen are in danger. Working fast, Kelly and her pals hightail the herd to the nearby pasture owned by rancher Andrea Holt. But their rescue mission is interrupted by a screaming match where Connie, a longtime employee of House of Lambspun, accuses Andrea of stealing her husband.

Days later, Andrea is found dead at her ranch—and suspicion immediately falls on Connie. Now Kelly and her friends must untangle this yarn before Connie ends up dangling by a thread…

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.

I enjoy reading cozy mysteries but I haven't read very many craft/yarn themes. I want to span my reading themes. Yarn Over Murder sounds like a great book, and it has saving the animals from the wildfires!

I have seen the author's books out for a long time and I love knitting mysteries plus those with a natural disaster in the story so this sounds like a great cozy.

It is easy to tell that this author loves nature by all the beautiful pictures of outdoors on her opening page of her website. I am excited that she is starting to write historical mysteries too.

I don't know a lot about alpaca farming but, living in So Cal, I know plenty about wildfires.
It's never fun when a friend is accused of murder. It would be nice to see how this is solved.
