DROPPED DEAD STITCH
Heartwarming isn't often used to describe a mystery, but it fits this Knitting series installment perfectly. Sefton has written another "feel good" story, but this one is based on a very serious subject -- sexual assault -- which the author handles with care and sensitivity. Delightful characters play a huge part in making this book so entertaining.
A nasty surprise is in store for Jennifer when she realizes the owner of the ranch was her attacker. Days later, the man is found dead, and she becomes a prime suspect. Kelly and her friends have their work cut out for them as they try to get her off the hook for murder. (BERKLEY PRIME CRIME, Jun., 288 pp., $24.95)
