LET'S GET COZY! PURL UP AND DIE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED 
PURL UP AND DIE
A Knitting Mystery
BY MAGGIE SEFTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Yarn Over Murder, Kelly Flynn and the Lambspun Knitters must unravel the truth from the lies to clear a friend’s son suspected of murder…
Kelly Flynn’s summer in Fort Connor, Colorado, is off to a great start with romantic celebrations with her boyfriend, Steve, and enjoyable—albeit challenging—knitting classes taught by her friend Barb at the House of Lambspun. But while Barb’s 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 young woman is found dead in her ransacked apartment, Tommy becomes the number one suspect.
The police are ready to close the case, but Kelly is convinced that there are a few more likely suspects. Now she has to knit together the clues herself to uncover a killer who doesn’t seem to drop a stitch…

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.
