Kelly Flynn returns to Colorado after her Aunt Helen's death. She inherits her aunt's cottage. It is across the street from her aunt's former farmhouse that has been converted to a yarn store, House of Lambspun, in one half, and a cafe in the other half.

The police believe her aunt's death was the result of a burglary gone bad. Kelly doesn't agree. Aunt Helen had just borrowed $20,000. Why? And more importantly, where is that money now? Also, Kelly finds some other items missing.

Kelly needs to return to her accounting job in DC, but talks her employer into letting her do some work from there while looking into the circumstances surrounding her aunt's death.

What Kelly finds is the women at House of Lambspun are willing to help her. This really surprises Kelly.

But can she find out who killed her aunt without putting herself in danger?

I'm not a knitter, so sometimes the references to knitting were a bit overdone. I do know that knitters can be a tight-knit group. So much of that rang true. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It is a great first mystery and I look forward to reading more in this series. Hopefully Kelly's character will really evolve and the love interest with Steve Townsend, a local developer, and her friendships with the ladies at House of Lambspun will grow and provide a little more variety in the next book.

I recommend this book! Armchair Interviews agrees.
