Kelly Flynn accountant by day, sleuth by . . . well, anytime there's a murder in Fort Connor, Colorado is once again drawn in by a death near her favorite knit shop, Lambspun. A financial advisor who bilked half the town of its savings is found dead in his sports car. This entry, the first of a two-parter, seems a little tired. There's less knitting, and seemingly less sleuthing. Much of the focus is on preteen Cassie, who has come to live with Kelly's friends. When the book ends, a forest fire is raging, so the sequel will hop right into an inferno. For series fans. Includes a recipe and a knitting pattern.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist

Old con men like Jared never change, but one victim (one of the knitters?) was mad enough to kill him this time. Sefton's 11th series title (after Cast On, Kill Off) includes recipes and patterns.

Revenge provides the theme for Edgar-finalist Sefton's enjoyable 11th knitting mystery featuring Fort Connor, Colo., accountant Kelly Flynn (after 2012 Cast On, Kill Off). Twelve years before, investment adviser Jared Rizzoli ran a Ponzi scheme that defrauded many Fort Connor residents, some of whom lost more than just money. Rizzoli went to prison for his crimes, but now he's back, unrepentant and unwelcome. After a couple of run-ins with the locals, Rizzoli is found murdered in his car. Kelly takes a keen interest in the case, especially since two of her friends are prime suspects, and once again turns amateur sleuth. While the ending is given away a little too early, series fans will delight in the side action of the regular cast of characters and be on the edge of their seats with a cliffhanger ending.
