Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton
I am not a knitter, but that in no way hinders the reading experience. Being a person who loves to create (I am a quilter), I understand the way knitters feel about yarns and fibers (I feel the same about fabrics)... and the sense of accomplishment when a project is completed or the frustration when it isn't going the way you planned. I also understand how the creative process fuels thought and peace. All that said.. knitting is woven with in the book since a good bit revolves around a Knitting Store, but even if you are a non-creative person, you can enjoy this book. Knitting is not the focal point, just a useful catalyst.
Kelly Flynn is an up and coming CPA in Washington, DC. She has come home to handle her Aunt Helen's estate. It is still difficult for her to believe Helen is gone and more difficult to understand how the accident happened. In fact, the more Kelly thinks about it, the more certain she becomes that it wasn't an accident. And so what starts out as a desire to make sense of it all, turns into an investigation to uncover the truth.
Along the way, Kelly finds family secrets, new friends, doubts about her own path and maybe even a twinge of love.
Wonderful cozy mystery! Looking forward to the others in the series. (There are 9 so far!)
