    One thought on “Cast On, Kill Off”

    1. Wow.What an enormous pile of shit. I can only assume these books are successful because we knitters are rather desperate not to be portrayed as little old biddies or lonely cat ladies with no life. So we're willing to overlook obscene redundancy, head jarringly obvious "plot" points, and idiotic dialogue.I mean, for crying out loud. If you have to have a character say, "Oh, my god, you're so funny!" three times in one scene to convince the reader your characters are funny? They're not funny.And [...]

    2. Thank goodness this is the last of them or I might have ended up torturing myself to get through even more. I simply don't know what to make of this. Domestic abuse, murder, fraud, an entire community's seeming investment in two incredibly boring people starting to have sex again, and a wedding that seems like it's taken forever to arrive and then forever again to be over. I wonder if Sefton's had some feedback that Kelly and Steve seem two-dimensional and there should be more sex, because all o [...]

    3. I don't know. I've read all the books in Sefton's series. I must be getting a bit tired of them. This episode is fine. Not great. Not "Wow! I didn't see that one coming." But fine.Spoilers ahead: but you will have seen these coming too. I don't make in a huge practice to guess "who done it." I mean, I do; but it's not my moment to live for. But I knew the perpetrator well before the halfway mark. Which is annoying. If I figure it out without really trying, what's the point?Kelly and Steve get ba [...]

    4. I have to say I keep reading these because I love knitting, and I love mysteries, and I keep hoping for better stories combining the two. This one had a bit more of a "story" to grab onto which was surprising after the last few, but the "who-done-it" part is still very predictable before being half-way through the book. There didn't seem to be the words "coffee", "caffeine", or "mug" on every page but the offset was more strangeness. I really have to wonder if anyone does any type of proofing of [...]

    5. I wanted to like this book especially after reading all the other books in the series. Instead I was disappointed and wondering if the author is just bored or confused by her own characters. Up to this point in the series, the main characters have have been a likable, if somewhat two-dimensional, group that clearly cares about each others well-being. Now this entire group of people are solely focused on whether the main character is ever going to have sex again. It's completely out of characterc [...]

    6. I have no idea why I continue to read this series. Apparently, it is like pulling of those clingy hangnails, you know that you should cut them off, but maybe, this one time if you do it quick it won't hurt. Then you have a bleeding, cut down your finger which hurts like the dickens-yeah this is how this series has become to me. Maybe, I will learn my lesson, but probably not.

    7. I love knitting and books so I assumed I'd enjoy this. I did not. The characters are all so annoying, I figured out who it was as soon as she showed up, and if read the word 'sleuthing' one more time, I was gonna stomp on this book. Maggie Sefton clearly has favorite words, which she throws around like confetti (sometimes in just a few pages you'll read the same damn word so often, it starts to sound foreign). So to sum it up, boring, predictable and annoying. Thumbs down.

    8. I've read all of these books but they're getting a bit predictable. Didn't care for the idea that Kelly and Steve weren't committed until after they slept together. Allowing a friend to drink to excess just because "have you ever tried to stop [her] from doing anything?" is not funny -it's irresponsible Also the bar fight at the end just felt unnecessary.

    9. Kelly Flynn's friend Megan is getting married. They have found the perfect seamstress in Zoe Yeager to create the wedding and bridesmaids dresses. Each bridesmaid is knitting their own shawl to drape over the top of their beautiful dresses.Megan has planned her wedding with the precision of a surgeon or a drill sergeant depending on which day you catch her. Nothing is going to ruin her wedding day. Not even when their seamstress gets enough courage to leave her abusive husband. The ladies all ra [...]

    10. I don't like to be mean. But I just have to say this: The idea of the series is cool, the series, however, is not. I was faithful, really. I kept buying and reading them, because, you know, it might just be me. But it's the books, really. This was and will remain my last one.I strongly recommend you to stay away.Here's why:1) The knitting. I love knitting, but this is just silly. The main character makes such a show of clumsily pushing her needle through a stitch in order to complete a scarf, an [...]

    11. This book is the most recent Lambspun knitting mystery. There has been yet another murder tangentially related to the Lambspun yarn store that is being investigated by the ridiculously incompetent Fort Conner police department that the ever-irritating Kelly Flynn.I have read all of the Lambspun knitting mysteries and this is by far the worse. It is an excruciating read. It deals with domestic abuse with the same tact and sensitivity that Sefton dealt with rape, i.e. absolutely none at all. Again [...]

    12. Predictable, redundant, and boring.I can't believe crap like this gets published. The following are just a few of the things that annoyed me:An entire paragraph on the autumnal equinox and the explanation that there will be 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. And now the darkness will be longer than the daylight. Gee, thanks, Maggie Sefton. I'm so glad you explained that. I apparently missed that lesson in elementary school.Four paragraphs on a character's arthritic knee. Four! A char [...]

    13. Another of my fluff readsgood when work gets so overwhelming that though I need/want to read at the end of the day, I can't concentrate on something requiring even a little bit of attention. Like Janet Evanovich, I think the author needs to finish up this series (although one of the reviewers said this one is perhaps the last!?!?). The characters and their quirks are getting repetitive and even more silly as the series progresses. And I think it is becoming even more obvious 'who done it'. I had [...]

    14. Kelly Flynn, accountant and apprentice knitter, and her ex-boyfriend, architect Steve Townsend, get together amid the wedding preparations of their friends Megan the IT consultant and Marty the lawyer. There's a lot of beautiful Colorado weather and scenery, and Kelly solves a murder the police have fumbled. Judging by the word-count, that's the general emphasis on this Knitting Mystery, a series I keep swearing off and picking up again. Abused wife and seamstress Zoe is found dead, and while th [...]

    15. I've enjoyed the previous books in this series. But, with the last book and now this one-I really feel as though I'm done with it. I find it unrealistic that a former police officer 'checks in' with Kelley on crimes and even encourages her. I find her to be more and more irritating as the series progresses. On the rare occasions that something doesn't go right for her she seems shocked and a little bit whiney.

    16. I love this series. I love this book and I love my Lambspun family!! The weeks leading up to Megan and Marty's wedding were filled with fun, craziness and murder. I actually solved the murder pretty early on because it was kind of obvious. I was right there along with all of Kelly's friends concerning her and Steve. The ending was great!!

    17. I thought I liked this series when I found this book and Unraveled at the library. I guess I thought wrong. I usually LOVE books with crafty settings and mysteries but halfway through this one I discovered that the characters really irritate me.

    18. A disappointing outing - the author repeatedly uses cliche phrases like "she smiled slyly," and the mystery took a backseat to some very silly relationship antics.

    19. I really enjoyed the read. The only surprise to me, was I guessed the murderer before the end of the book. Maybe I am getting to be a j.fletcher??

    20. Although this was better than the last, the ending wasn't a surprise at all! Kelly really needs to stop drinking so much coffee!

    21. Tenth in the Knitting Mystery series revolving around Kelly Flynn and her knitting friends in Fort Connor (a.k.a Fort Collins), Colorado.My TakeIt's another sweet and cozy mystery that Kelly tackles. This one at Mimi's behest. A good read that fulfills my need for a homey setting with loving and supportive friends in the mythical small-town environment of Fort Connor. Friends who know your quirks and still love you. Will always be there for you.Even Detective Dan has come to respect Kelly's disc [...]

    22. This was the tenth book of a fun cozy mystery series. I found it to be well written for its genre with well developed characters. I love the "family" that the protagonist has found because of the Lambspun fiber shop with classes and needed items for spinning, knitting, crocheting, felting, and weaving. And I love the protagonist Kelly and her CPA brain that loves to puzzle out numbers and murders. I am such a huge fan of this series.

    23. When Zoe the seamstress making the bridesmaids dresses for Megan and Marty wedding is found dead outside of the church everyone points a finger at her abusive husband, is her husband the one to blame, will the wedding go smoothly oh and will Kelly and Steve get back together after 6mths apart

    24. This one was a breath holder until the end. It's about time those two got back together know it's wedding bells for them. It's getting better.

    25. Reading the new book in this series, is just like visiting with friends. I was not lost for a moment, and it was like I finished the previous book last week instead of a year ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Earlier, Kelly and her boyfriend broke up, and now they are slowly finding their way back to each other. They met unexpectedly over business in Denver, and started going out to dinner together. Kelly’s friends keep urging her on, telling how they are meant to be a couple, but I love how caref [...]

    26. Review originally published at The Bookwyrm's Hoard.Cast On, Kill Off, the tenth in the Kelly Flynn series, is typical Maggie Sefton knitting mystery fare: a quick, light read, suited for summer reading and written for cozy mystery lovers. CPA and hobby knitter Kelly Flynn and her friends are in the the midst of preparations for Megan's wedding. When the designer and seamstress of the bridal party's gowns is shot, Kelly is drawn into the investigation.Fans of the series will be pleased to encoun [...]

    27. Review based on Advance Reading CopyExcitement and chaos reigns among Kelly Flynn's familiar and friendly group in Fort Connor, Colorado. Their good friends Megan and Marty are getting married and Kelly is in the wedding party. Megan has everything under control down to the minute. The dresses are gorgeous and ready, designed and made by Zoe Yeager, a local seamstress, assisted by her sister Vera.Zoe is friendly and creative, but she has a secret. Zoe suffers from spousal abuse, hiding her bruis [...]

    28. I like mysteries a lot. I generally like cozy mysteries, as well. Add knitting, and it should be a pretty great read. Yet somehow it wasn't. What I liked:* The author's descriptive languageWhat I disliked:* All of the characters - These characters started out toeing the line between cozy and cheesy, but by the end it was pure cheese. They became caricatures. They are certainly not people I'd want to be friends with. I paged through the last 3 chapters, only glancing for info vital to the story. [...]
