ONLY SKEIN DEEP By Maggie Sefton


I have been a fan of this series for some years and have read most of the books at one time. I was looking forward to learning about my friends at Lampspun Knitters. I was sadly disappointed to find the format had changed from a mystery to a novel of family life. The story revolves around pregnancy and babies. Yes, there is a murder but it was secondary and seldom mention in the story. I got extremely tired reading about Baby Jack and his playing soccer. The mention of Carl’s actions with the squirrel is found in most of the previous books.
Kelly is near her time to give birth. She and Steve are excited that Baby Jack will soon make an appearance. Her friends are determined that Kelly and Steve will be married before the birth. A small wedding is planned for them. Information about early settlers in Colorado is found. This includes Native Americans. The mystery is the second wife of a major corporate owner is murder on the golf course adjacent to the Lampspun building. No one saw it happen. The solution was easy to figure out.

    I haven’t read any of this series, but I can see how this would be a disappointment. Hopefully the author will take feedback to heart and return to her mystery roots. I’m surprised the publisher went forward with the book.
